  1. 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.
  2. My 91 if the stereo is on in any way whether it be radio cassette or CD the antenna is up. Your probably fine.
  3. 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
  4. I couldn’t find anything when searching on here on where to find on the car what day it was actually completed. I’m assuming it’s something to do with the tags on the door or in the trunk. I’m really curious to see when my car was built as it’s VIN 068 of the 91s and the original owner said it was the last one on the lot.
  5. I found VIN 199 on Facebook marketplace today. Red/tan 16 way seats. 94k guy wants 4950 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/811950969191050/
  6. Here’s an early 88 on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/1988-Buick-Reatta/283509505656?hash=item42027bbe78:g:JDoAAOSw0llc-q26
  7. @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.
  8. 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.
  9. There was a 29 at the Long Island Buick show last weekend. Owner said he had it since 1956. Was a very interesting car.
  10. 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.
  11. Well that took like five minutes. Are the mirror lights supposed to come on with the interior lights? Or are they separate?
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. Here was today at the Long Island Buick Clubs show. And a stop by at the colleg I went to on the way home.
  16. I don’t know how to make that work. I like CL a lot better too. It’s so much easier.
  17. 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 😐
  18. Thanks the place did have a lot of tractor stuff so that would make sense.
  19. I bought this at an estate sale a year or two ago thinking it would be cool to make into a lamp. That’s not going to happen so I figured I should sell it. I just don’t know what it is originally from. Only real marking is on the glass and it say GE. Thanks in advanced
  20. https://poconos.craigslist.org/ctd/d/south-sterling-buick-reatta/6893124085.html polo green 91 in PA not mine
  21. Found this 99 silver arrow on eBay. Not Mine. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1999-Buick-Riviera-Silver-Arrow/293085133380?hash=item443d3c3a44:g:-TIAAOSwedNc13qR
  22. Where I went to college there were so many guys into lifting and off roaring their Jeeps it looked like a dealership when they’d all park together. I know a few guys who are really into that stuff. And I figure it’s not my thing but at least they’re interested in cars.
  23. I know its not hard to learn.its more of I haven’t had a chance to. My younger brother and I are probably going to buy 90s Jeep to learn on this summer. Maybe keep it maybe not. I also want to learn on something other than my first pre war car purchase. That sounds like a potentially expensive mistake depending on the car.
  24. I’m suprised that Craigslist didn’t just start running ads. I’m sure Coca-Cola or McDonalds should have been happy to pay Craigslist for another space to advertise their product. I’ve noticed that Craigslist has seemed to be not as great the last few weeks since they did this. Facebook Marketplace works ok for things other than cars. Cars are weird on there. I didn’t it hard to look for exactly what you want. Especially since they seem to only have pre selected makes and models
