  1. I found VIN 199 on Facebook marketplace today. Red/tan 16 way seats. 94k guy wants 4950 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/811950969191050/
  2. Here’s an early 88 on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/1988-Buick-Reatta/283509505656?hash=item42027bbe78:g:JDoAAOSw0llc-q26
  3. @DAVES89 I bought my 91 reatta as a classic so I was looking for one with low miles. Bought it with 46600. But I totally see why people like you get really up there in the mileage. It’s so damn fun to drive. I’m the second owner and the original owner bought it in November of 91. Only had 1000 miles on it in 1999. So I got lucky I guess. I’m fully planning on doing the full 3k a year my insurance allows though. So I got to put another 1500 on it by the end of July.
  4. Went to my local cruise in night yesterday. Parked next to a 41 century and a 1990 Oldsmobile touring sedan. The owner of the olds also has a 89 reatta that he’s going to bring to this event once he sells his olds. I also got pulled over for having my period correct plates on. The cop was suprised to learn that my car was register and insured as a classic to those plates. So no ticket for me.
  5. There was a 29 at the Long Island Buick show last weekend. Owner said he had it since 1956. Was a very interesting car.
  6. Replaced my antenna again found out the fuse was bad. I thought I checked that first but whatever I now have the correct antenna rather than a reproduction one. Also discovered this wire under my drivers seat. I’m assuming it’s for the 16 way seats.
  7. Well that took like five minutes. Are the mirror lights supposed to come on with the interior lights? Or are they separate?
  8. I have a factory mirror. I think the plug is still attached on mine. I haven’t looked up inside the headliner in a while. It’s the same metal piece glued to the windshield for both types?
  9. The previous owner of my car put in the mirror with the compass direction in the corner. That doesn’t work and I’d rather have my reatta be closer to stock. I found the tutorial on Ronnie’s site for installing it and was wondering if there’s anything to do besides follow it in reverse. Here’s what I’m talking about http://www.reattaowner.com/roj/component/content/article/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=62:other-electrical&id=299:compass-rear-view-mirror-install-instructions-2
  10. It got up to 90 today. Was nice for a change. I realized I didn’t take pictures of any of the other cars there. But that’s one of the four propellers from the SS United States. The liner that still holds the fastest time across the Atlantic from NY to Liverpool, both ways.
  11. Here was today at the Long Island Buick Clubs show. And a stop by at the colleg I went to on the way home.
  12. I don’t know how to make that work. I like CL a lot better too. It’s so much easier.
  13. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2281142272135014/ found this early 88 on Facebook. 77k and $2500. From the pictures there’s one small rip in the drivers seat but looks pretty nice. I’m about half an hour away from it if anyone wants me to take a look. I’m sort of considering it myself. But don’t have storage 😐
  14. Thanks the place did have a lot of tractor stuff so that would make sense.
