  1. Looks like they updated the pictures. Does it a lot more justice also vin ends in 900622. So is this the last vert built?
  2. I think it depends on what your talking about when asking what’s rare. My 91 Reatta is one of one in its color combo and options. if you know what it is you’ll appreciate it but if not you’ll walk on by. I also collect coins and that’s a lot worse in what’s rare and valuable. There’s the mint bad a few hundred thousand rare then there’s they made six coins rare. Both are rare but in a very different sense.
  3. The closest pick a pull by me is an hour away and that has five reattas. Unfortunately for me they realized what they had before I could get to it. The one of two 91 they had is pretty much completely gone. And the teves system is gone from the other four cars. Body is okay for most. Matt’s used auto parts in Hyde park NY
  4. Marck Barker also posted this car in His Facebook group he is admin of, that’s where I saw it. But I agree that the photos are lacking for hemmings. I am close enough to look at the car for anyone that would like too. I would consider it myself if the price was half of what they want but I hope they get it. I think for that low miles of a 91 it is worth it.
  5. Drunk me last weekend contacted them last week Since I’m about a half hour away. Haven’t heard back but I’d like to at least look at it.
  6. In NY when you register your car historically you get plates with an HX prefix. I paid the four dollars more for YOM plates. Mine are right for the year but I think they aren’t from that year. But I like the period correct look better.
  7. I think has the potential to be a collectable car but probably the same way a Reatta and Allanté is. Only to those who know what they are.
  8. Is it possible to bypass the VATS on the Allanté? I did it in my 97 Lesabre with a resistor from radio shack
  9. I used a sharpie on my security light in my 97 Lesabre. Worked pretty well
  10. I don’t have a picture of a vert with at a black top. I know I saw one somewhere once, but here’s a concept coupe with the roof painted black.
  11. I do believe tastes change. I’m 24 now and I own a 91 Reatta, but I’m also a big fan of late 30s-50s cars. I’m a bit all over the place for that era but I’m interested. There’s some other later dates mixed in it too. When I was in high school I really loved 65 mustangs. And was hell bent on getting one. Now I don’t really look at them when I see them. I like rarer things now. Every cruise in night you see tons of 55-57 bel airs, corvettes and mustangs. But how many times do you see a reatta or something Prewar. I know of three other guys around my age that have classic cars. One has a 1990 Nissan 300z, one has three 70s Datsuns, and I met a guy who has a 1914 model t. So there’s totally no categories for age and cars you like. Said before in their thread but if it interests you and you can afford it go for it.
  12. Rob are you getting something like this on the inside of your light? I had some success with opening the trunk and removing some bulbs back in August.
  13. Started my car for the first time in a few months reconnected the battery and started right up. All I needed was some air in the tires. Some funny noises at first in the shock area. I’m assuming from sitting for about three months.
  14. He was willing them in that Facebook group recently. I bought one. Very good info in there.
  15. I posted it in that group. I’ll let y’all know how they like it.
  16. Ronnie he’s in a group run by Marck Barker on Facebook I’m also in. It called Buick Reatta owners (and enthusiasts) . He chimes in from time to time.
  17. Also if you need parts Marck Barker at East Coast Reatta parts has a ton of new and refurbished parts for sale http://www.eastcoastreattaparts.com/19901991-instrument-panels/
  18. try this out http://www.reattaowner.com/roj/component/content/article/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=61:digital-dash-panel-a-crt&id=214:dashboard-reads-00-error-90-91-models
  19. My 97 Lesabre. Had it from April if 2014 to December 2017. Transmission was leaking about a quart a week,about a quart of oil a month, and some antifreeze from somewhere. Also needed paint and tires. I figured It’d be cheaper to buy a new one than fix what was wrong with it. But I sure do miss the Maroon leather interior
  20. Where exactly is this part? Seems like something I should do on my car if it’s not too hard to get to.
  21. 99 silver arrow for sale in Worcester Mass. not mine. https://worcester.craigslist.org/cto/d/littleton-99-buick-riviera-silver-arrow/6785839380.html
  22. I’m thinking of making a binder of all the information I have. I some promotional material now along with the letter from the dealer and the window sticker. My most asked questions have been “what’s that?” and “ didn’t Cadillac make something like this”. Which when I was parked next to an Allante was cool
  23. CT doesn’t issue titles for cars over 20 years old. So that may be the case for the title issue
  24. It’s also on Craigslist for 2000 https://delaware.craigslist.org/cto/d/newark-rare-1990-buick-reatta/6781109676.html

    Pb blaster is pretty much all I use on the ships I’ve worked on. I’ve seen it works better if you let it soak for a while.
