  1. I’ve used it a lot. I generally look around there before posting a question here. I also have put many links to your site in the Facebook group. And they like it a lot too it seems.
  2. 91 is a More conventional ABS system. I forget the exact type right now. But it definitely not the Teves. I have heard of people swapping out the systems.
  3. Probably beating a dead horse here, but I some how couldn’t get anything to come up with my specific problem. I went to a car show last Wednesday and when I put the lights on only one light went up. Turned it on and off three times then they both went up. Went down with one push. Saturday after another show they worked fine. So is my headlight motor going? Or maybe just a random glitch.
  4. If I remember correctly there was one for sale that someone posted here over the winter that had low miles but it looked like they hit something and it had a salvage title. Don’t know what happened to that one. But most of the ones I’ve seen have over 70k miles.
  5. Only reatta but I went with my friend who has an 89. He brought his 90 olds touring sedan he’s trying to sell. So far I’ve only been to one show where there has been another reatta. And that was the Buick club of Long Islands show back in May
  6. Went to a fairly large show by me. About 3-400 cars. And today is also my one year anniversary of buying my reatta.
  7. 99 silver arrow on CL in Staten Island $5000. Not mine https://newyork.craigslist.org/stn/cto/d/staten-island-1999-buick-riviera-silver/6940092446.html
  8. Bought some new tires today. Was very supprised that Goodyear still makes the same tires as back then. Managed to get the exact type that was on the window sticker on my car. Now I’m as close as I’ll probably get to 100% factory looks for my car. Tomorrow I’m planning on going to a fairly large show if it doesn’t rain.
  9. I do really like telling people about how Buick had a touch screen back in 86. I sometimes wish I bought an 88 or 89 to show this off. And the reattas touch screen has more useful stuff in it than most modern cars anyway.
  10. We can only hope. I do feeel like this will be a one or two model year car though
  11. A friend of mines father installed an aftermarket sunroof in her 99 lesabre when it was her grandmothers. Granted he’s one of the best mechanics in my area she said it was terrible and Barely worked. From that and a few guys at college who did that conversion. I’d also steer clear of it
  12. There are a fair number of allantes for sale by me too. Two of the ones I’ve seen in the last year have actually been at dealerships. My first show I went to I parked next to an allante
  13. I don’t know if it’s just the area of the country I live in but I’ve seen significantly more allante’s in the wild than Reattas. Just this last week I saw three different allantes. I’ve only seen two other reattas since I’ve known of them. And by now about 10- 12 Allantes. This is excluding junk yards but then I’m only up to 7 reattas. Anyone else have a similar experience?
  14. Just saw this on Facebook market place said they were restored and parkedfor four to five years. At an estate sale so may be able to get for a better deal. Not mine https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/636691240144982/
  15. @azreattacollector that is amazing that you have two consecutive VIN number cars. Even if those were something common that would still be extremely impressive. I’d totally try to go to a show and park them next to each other. And make sure you have some sort of sign explaining that.
  16. The spreadsheet is a pretty good tool. I started making a list of all the one of one 91s. Probably should get back to finishing that. Barney did you ever get my PM from a few weeks ago concerning the five cars in a junkyard by me?
  17. Driftwood coupe with some sort of electrical problem. 74k probably a good deal for someone https://southcoast.craigslist.org/cto/d/raynham-buick-reatta/6929484330.html
  18. One of the coolest records I have found was Walter Cronkites live broadcast of the moon landing. Both my parents were under ten when that happens but it gives me a feel for what it must have been like.
  19. That’s a very impressive collection. Is it for sale as one big bundle or everything individually? That neon sign is very cool. But I’m safely assuming that’s one of the very big ticket items.
  20. That actually makes sense. All my cars have been first year more or less. I had a 95 dodge neon. And a 97 lesabre. The neon had 1995 on it. The lesabre had 97. My 98 lesabre has 97 but I assumed that was because it was made that year.
  21. Noticed this while washing my car the other day. Couldn’t find anything on here as to why the DOT date isn’t the year my car was built. My assumption is they made enough for 25000 or so cars in 1987 but didn’t use them all. Every other car I have owned and my parents have had has the date of the year the car was made. Just thought this was interesting.
  22. I know I haven’t seen many for sale. I know of three Skyhawks for sale within 100 miles of NYC. 2 84s and an 82. All very low miles and under 3k each. There’s two skylarks of similar vintage also same ballpark price and miles. I’ve only seen one t type lesabre and that was in a junkyard. See some for sale here and there. But really not to often.
  23. Went to my local cruise in night. As always the only Reatta. I did find out about a third one in my county. A guy who’s the mechanic for an old lady says she has a 88 or 89 that’s white and grey.
  24. My 91 if the stereo is on in any way whether it be radio cassette or CD the antenna is up. Your probably fine.
  25. Thanks Barney. I’ll make sure to save that link. I believe the original owner meant it was the last one at that dealership. The title says July 10th 1991 for the date bought. So that’s pretty near the end of the model year
