  1. Hi Greg, You’re welcome! (I think)…
  2. Knocked it loose today, as easy as Matt said. Thanks for all the good info.
  3. The general now has a girlfriend…
  4. Yea, I was thinking it was a damn good thing I wasn’t able to get it in gear as I wouldn’t have been able to get it out of gear before crashing into my garage wall! I’ll give myself plenty of room should I suddenly take off. And chocking the wheels is a good idea, thanks MT.
  5. That’s a relief. Thanks Matt
  6. After sitting for a few weeks I now find I can’t get her in gear, as if the clutch is non-existent. Pumped the clutch pedal several times and nothing but severe grinding when I try to engage. Tried starting it with it in gear and pedal depressed, but it just lurches forward as if there is no clutch. Any ideas? Thanks boys. peter
  7. No I have to take responsibility for it. The seller sent pictures but obviously they weren’t revealing. I rolled the dice and lost. Thanks for the concern, no big deal, I’ve moved on…
  8. Thanks, I’ve read lots about the different patterns and tints. Speaking with Bill Anderson (noted ‘41 expert), he was digging deep into this and I thought close to making some conclusions but I haven’t heard anything yet.
  9. Just to be clear, I don’t think the panels I bought were done by Doug. His work is stellar from what I hear.
  10. Grant, how are you going about getting the engine-turned dash panels? I recently got burned buying what were advertised as Doug Seybold panels but they were pretty bad. Had dents and the panels were chromed which is wrong. So I’m keeping my pretty good old ones starting over…won’t make that mistake again.
  11. Agree. It’s a Roadmaster Sport Coupe like mine.
  12. You are an artisan of the highest order, great fabrication.
  13. That is a fine looking car. At the risk of losing friends here on the forum, I noticed you added an outside visor which I think looks great. Could I trouble you for any information you may have on it, make, type, size?? I’m thinking about adding one to my ‘41
  14. Touché! Great minds think alike…
  15. Beautiful….just needs a 4-star General flag or license plate.
  16. Thanks Matt, you should know…
  17. It looks like a $50k car to me, especially given how much has been spent on its restoration. I know it’s a base model but you wouldn’t know it looking at it.
  18. I’m a little confused in that my research indicates folks are asking a lot more than this for these cars, remains to be seen if they get what they are asking. This is a friend so I want him to get a decent price for it, particularly given what’s gone into this car. On the other hand, if this is the way it is, I’d buy it and be incredibly happy. Thanks again peter
  19. …and thank you both for your help.
  20. I am shocked and humbled. It looks like so much more. That wouldn’t cover the paint job on this beauty.
  21. 10 to 14?? You must not like Buick’s much!
  22. After some research, surprisingly and sadly, it seems the very best restored cars only fetch $50K, if that. Many good driver quality cars, barely half that. These are relative steals in my opinion as they are cool, spacious, elegant, powerful cars.
