  1. How does the saying from Latin go? "Caveat emptor".
  2. Sincerely hope that "29 Chandler" survives these fires with all his vehicles. I am in Sacramento and the air quality is horrible. The smoke is so bad that if you stay outside more than 2 hours you smell like a "smoked ham".
  3. Price? Last year was the vehicle restored? Model number of the vehicle? Images of the car from more than 2 feet?
  4. Although I have looked far and wide for the last 35 years I have yet to see a single St Regis 2-door Brougham President that has survived. I assume they have all been lost to history.
  5. Very good price for the 1933 Buick coupe with the 127 inch wheelbase. Is it a special coupe at 1,000 units made for $1,270 per unit FOB or a regular coupe at 2,887 units made for $1,310 per unit FOB? I think "regular coupe" is the Victoria coupe with a back seat that sits 5 passengers. Either way few survive and looks like a solid car and not a "rust bucket". Is the vehicle 100% complete?
  6. It sure is not California. California has about 7,000 people a day move out. Yes, about the same move into CA a day but the ones leaving have money to bring with them. SOUTH CAROLINA has I think the best deals on registration of old cars. Further, the property is affordable. However, the humid conditions can be problematic.
  7. Incorrect headlights. Assume this incorrect headlight exchange was done to allow sealed beams. If I were selling the car I would at least place the correct headlights on the vehicle to give it more "curb appeal".
  8. How many units of this model were manufactured? How many still exist? How many of the ones that exist were made into HotRods? What is missing as far as parts?
  9. Great looking car. Query?: EBAY says the owner in his restoration placed a 1940 Engine in the vehicle. What does placing a 1940 engine in the car do to the value when everything else done on the car appears to be restored correct and with a high quality restoration? With all the 1939 Buick engines that I suppose are available since the last 10 years for use including ones located in various "parts cars" why did the owner not install a 1939 Engine? Or is the 1940 Engine a mirror of the 1939 Engine?
  10. The car is a 1933 Buick Restorod, Model 97 Series 90. Nice car. Where are the images of the engine compartment? The front of the car images? The roof area? Is this vehicle on local Craig's List?
  11. Wish I was a mechanic with knowledge of the Auburn's pick for manufacture of its engine. Sadly since I am not and I have little time to educate myself as to how to repair these engines and any other mechanical parts I will have to pass on this vehicle. However, the asking price of this car with the super rare correct fog light attachments is a very fair price even if the upholstery may not be leather. The cost to restore a 1937 CORD is high. Old rusty parts that need attention cost so much as to scare the average buyer.
  12. So when was the last time that the "list" was expanded ? Last I heard Buick 80 series were added, but so few 80 series Buick vehicles survived I assume it does not make much of a difference. If the club can expand the list can they also delete vehicles that were added in the past?
