  1. Very nice car. Should sell quickly at that price.
  2. The seller just lowered the asking price by 12 grand. That's a really nice (and hard to find) car for the money. If only I had the room in my garage.....
  3. Thanks for the advice folks. I will look into that.

  5. Hi, new owner of a 1950 Buick here. The battery keeps going dead lately and I just noticed the driver side backup light and driver side front turn signal light are stuck on, even with the ignition turned off. I tried playing around with the different switches, and pressing the high beam switch turned them off briefly - but the lights came back on the next time I started the car. Also, the driver side blinker isn't working, but the passenger side is. Anyone have a clue what the culprit might be? Thanks
  6. 1939, I will re-post in that section. I think I do have a file of the wiring diagram on my computer. Ben, you're right. I meant to type "signal light" - thank you.

  8. First the driver told me this was a "normal scratch." I asked him if he noticed this damage at pickup, and he couldn't give me a straight answer. I then asked the driver to notate on the BOL that I mentioned damage and he agreed to do it. Then he had me sign the BOL on his phone (no paperwork) and told me that I would see the damage noted on my email copy of the BOL. I told him its not mentioned at all in the emailed copy, yet he kept insisting that he did it. He basically had me sign off on the BOL that said I received the car with no damage. He also called at the last minute wanting cash on delivery. I received no paper receipt of any kind, so all I could do at that point is give him a sheet of paper and have him write down his name, amount paid, and that I mentioned damage. He lied about a number of things as did the broker. I will call my insurance company during the week and try to make a claim. Thanks for the advice.
  9. This shipper was advertising in Hemmings until recently, but I'm not sure if they still are. It actually turned out to be a broker, and they subbed out the job to another trucking company. The driver basically pulled a fast one on me and lied about mentioning the damage on the bill of lading when I requested him to do so. I was pressed for time when finding a shipper, so I wasn't able to do enough due diligence. It was a lesson learned for me, because I have since learned that this company has a long track record of engaging in very deceptive/shady business practices.
  10. My deductible is $500 so I may try to tackle this myself. I believe it is lacquer per the previous owner who owned it 40+ years.
  11. I have insurance on it now, but not at the time of delivery.
  12. Hello, the transport company damaged the paint on my 1950 Buick. Not sure exactly how it happened because the driver lied and the transport company is (so far) unwilling to accept responsibility. Some type of object made contact with the fender and took out a chunk of paint the size of a Tomato. What is the best way to go about repairing this? Would it be difficult to match and touch this up? I'm definitely not a pro when it comes to bodywork. Any advice would be greatly appreciated...I will try to attach a picture.
  13. I'm not sure about the exact model years of the cars, but the first picture is my late Grandpa (smoking a cigar) with his 1933 Ford. The second is also my Grandpa (smoking a pipe) with a fishing buddy and his 1946 Ford. Both pictures were taken in upstate NY. Again...I could be wrong about the make and model years...but I was told he was always a Ford man. He died in 1961. Third picture was taken on my birthday in Florida with my late Dad's 62 Vette in 1986.
  14. Hello, I am new here and interested in attending. Is this winter meet open to the public or do you have to be a club member? Also, is there an admission fee? I just want to view the cars, not actually bringing one to show. Thanks.
