  1. Going through an old photo album from my grandfather. And stumbled upon this picture of him at his grandfathers farm. Looks to me like a 1918-20 but this isn’t really my area so can anyone tell for sure?
  2. Last cruise in night at my local place and I finally got my friend to bring his reatta out instead of his Oldsmobile
  3. Here’s1999 silver arrow #2 on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/984956845274693/
  4. It is an early 88. So that’s rarer too. Depends on how much you like it and want too have one like has been said already.
  5. Yesterday was two years since I bought my reatta. Tonight went to a local cruise in with my friend who has an 87 olds touring sedan. He also has an 89 reatta in the reverse color combo of mine.
  6. The female side of the lighter does have a small bit off rust forming and so does the actual lighter. Bottom connections have a very small amount of corrosion too. Looks like the previous owner spilled something. Thanks guys. And Ronnie I’ll check that out too.
  7. I haven’t checked that but I’ll do that tomorrow when I check on it again.
  8. This isn’t anything too crazy. But I think I may have some issue with my cigarette lighter on my 91. Basically whenever I have my phone plugged in charging it takes forever to to charge. Also makes the radio have static. And when I try to use the actual lighter it doesn’t glow. Fuse is good. Just wondering if anyone else have had had this problem before.
  9. I’ve been driving my 91 a bit. My local cruise in night just started in the 4th so last couple Saturdays that’s been out. And just driving it because I’m very bored.

    I agree that your local Buick dealer would probably be easiest. I had mine make a set with the other set. There is a guide online somewhere of which resistance is which number key. But they should know that.
  11. I think I’ll buy one just in case. And maybe if I get lucky it will match my lesabre.
  12. Washed her and went for a drive today
  13. The sapphire blue with red would have looked cool too. I’d love to fine one of the four driftwood and red cars If any are still around. There was so much potential for cool combos. A shame more didn’t happen.
  14. I love all the word color combos. But there’s some good looking ones I don’t understand why there weren’t more made. For example the Maui blue with saddle interior 90 verts.
  15. Saw this today. Pretty rare car. Need some work but I don’t think I’ve seen one for sale in NY for a few months now. Only has Craigslist email as response. Also on Facebook https://newyork.craigslist.org/lgi/pts/d/ridge-1989-buick-lesabre-type/7130117264.html https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/412840052932747/
  16. From my understanding the north star had almost all the main head gasket issues addressed by the early 2000s. And final improvements around 04-5. Would make sense because I see a large number of high mile DTS’s for sale
  17. It’s a Buick too. By having the reputation as an old mans car doesn’t help the brand in general. I haven’t met anyone else remotely my age outside of BCA events that even knows what this car is. And even at those events they seem to be overlooked. I’ve been the only reatta at every car show I’ve went to except one. My most asked question is “what’s that?” I only found out about this car because of when Buick introduced the cascade and some article I read mentioned that it was the first convertible in 25 years. I looked up what that was and found out about these. I don’t know if I would have
  18. Looks like it needs a lot of work. But would be a cool project for a herse person. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/544382909610544/
  19. Got pulled over for having these plates on twice in one weekend. Cops didn’t realize that the liberty plates were long ago enough to be on a historically registered car.
  20. I live my 91. The reatta is a bit of a weird car lots of parts that are specific to it. Thankfully the drivetrain GM put in a ton of other cars so no real issues there. There a ton of good info down on the reatta section here. There’s also a good group on Facebook with a lot of info.
  21. It seems they’re practically giving them away I saw an ad for one on Facebook with 1500 miles for 20k. I just wish it was a colum shift. And could have interior colors other than black or tan.
  22. Buick is discontinuing their sedans and wagons after the 2020 model year so I feel that big GM wants them to be a China only company. I’d consider a new wagon if I could get it with more options of colors. Shades of grey aren’t really my thing. Also I genuinely don’t think GM want to make cars anymore they aren’t really that compete with the foreign brands in that respect. I don’t think it’s that sedans and wagons don’t sell well. GM just isn’t putting in the effort to sell them.
  23. One thing with all this talk of colors and color combos is that I’d rather have all these crazy and weird things available compared to now where there’s five exterior colors and two interior colors available for almost all new cars. Gm seems think that the transition from white to black with maybe red and blue is enough. And god forbid you want anything other than black or tan and black interiors.
  24. I think this may be what you need http://www.reattaowner.com/roj/component/content/article/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=95:heat-a-ac-system&id=115:how-to-clean-1990-climate-control-panel
