  1. If they were not as advertised, did you try to get your money back? Seems like a rip off. If it was eBay, they have pretty good policies about such things.
  2. I wondered the same thing in an earlier discussion of this subject. The Seybold refinished panels seem to be the "gold standard" when it comes to Concours restorations, and they look beautiful. But they are very clearly different from the originals.
  3. Terry, I was only attempting to inject some comic relief into a situation which, I'm sure, has caused you a lot of heartache. I apologize. Carry on. It seems like you're making great progress!
  4. This guy has got to be one of the coolest dudes ever! šŸ˜Ž
  5. This car looks like it has a lot going for it. I could live with the color scheme, but the price seems high. Also, ad copy is a bit confusing -- after touting various original parts, he says "new everything!" šŸ˜„
  6. Your suspicions are correct. Here's a "Before and After" shot showing where the Buick image came from. Here's the website of the artist who does the work: https://www.auto-visuals.com/
  7. Why am I not surprised? Good for you, Ken. You are a credit to the hobby to pass along such a nice car for such a nice price. I'm sure you made someone very happy!
  8. Looks like a screaming deal. Isn't this the car that @kgreen picked up as part of Lamar's barn find deal a few years ago?
  9. Count me in -- you should be a shoe-in -- nicest photo in the contest by far!
  10. Haha -- I had the same reaction and wondered if it were some kind of abbreviation for "Framingham." Actually, if you look on the map from the Craig's List ad, it's Effingham, New Hampshire. Nice car, wherever it is.
  11. Very hard to look at that pic -- obviously, some serious impact there. As others have said, thank goodness you both escaped serious injury. So sorry for your loss.
  12. I don't think there are any beige/chocolate cars in "Chinatown." I just watched it a few days ago. Very nice cars, including of course Mrs. Mulray's gorgeous cream '37 Packard Victoria convertible and her husband's '37 Cadillac Fleetwood sedan. "The Sting," on the other hand, does feature this '28 Buick:
  13. Haha -- I was just about to post the same comment, but you beat me to it. Otherwise, looks like a very, very nice car.
  14. Seems like somebody has taken liberties with the interior, including the inside door handles and window cranks. However, it looks like a nice driver if you're not too particular about authenticity.
  15. Thanks, I will check the vacuum advance situation, but it seems unlikely that that's the problem based on your description. The symptom on my car (the two times it has happened) is not a "grunt" and failure to start. It's a few slow turn overs and then zero, as if the battery were completely dead. I have removed the cut-off switch as discussed above, and so far the problem has not reoccurred. (However, it previously went three months between occurrences, so I know that doesn't prove anything.) We shall see.
  16. Thanks for the suggestion. The vacuum switch on the carb has actually been disabled on my car and it has a push button under the dash instead. I decided to leave it that way when I got the car since I really don't care about that level of authenticity, and it seemed like a potential trouble spot anyway.
  17. It's always been interesting to me that the industry stylists seemed to be in lock-step for the 1936 models -- almost all makes had essentially the same grill design. You can spot a '36 from a mile, no matter the manufacturer!
  18. Very handsome car, and reasonably priced. Interesting that it doesn't have power windows -- I would have thought they were standard on a car like this.
