  1. I have a 1935 Buick Special that is painted Raleigh Blue. There are a few rock chips and scratches that I wish to touch up. I do have a small bottle of touch up paint that matches. Does anyone have any recommendations for touching up the paint or a website or a you.tube video that they would recommend? Also, do you have a touch up paint shop to recommend in the Houston area? Thanks in advance for the help. John P. #50690
  2. Gentlemen, I am the proud owner of a "new" old 1935 Buick Special 46C. She runs well and starts well. The issue I am having is that occasionally when I come to a stop the car stalls. I am pressing the clutch pedal all the way to the floor and it doesn't disengage from the engine until the last inch or two. I'm thinking that the clutch linkage or cable has become loose or stretched and that is the problem. If I tighten up the clutch cable then the clutch should disengage from the engine much sooner when I press on the clutch pedal. If I slide the stick shift (its on the floor) into neutral and coast to a stop the problem does not occur. I then shift into first to begin accelerating. Does this make sense or should I be looking in another direction? John P. BCA #50690
  3. Don, I have three keys. One has a code stamped on key of: B1198C. The second one has a code of: 293. Finally, the last has a code of CH545. Thanks for your help. John P.
  4. Gentlemen, I just bought a 1935 Buick Special 46C. It's a beautiful car. But I only have one set of keys and want to make a spare set. The local hardware store guys look at me with crossed eyes when I ask for a key blank for a car this old. Does anyone have any suggestions for finding key blanks for this car. Thanks in advance. John P.
  5. In March of 2019 I had a LoJack Vehicle Recovery System installed on my 1939 Cadillac LaSalle Coupe. The service was good. The technician came to my house and installed the system. I have now purchased a 1935 Buick Special 46C and wish to have another LoJack system installed on the car. That is where the problems start. Over the last three days I have left three messages with their sales department (listed on their website) and have not heard back. In addition I have talked to Customer Service three times and have been assured three times that an email has been sent to the sales manager asking him to contact me. Still no response. LoJack's poor customer/sales service does not breed confidence in their ability to quickly follow up if you report your car is stolen. Has anyone else had any experience with LoJack' sales or customer service? Do you have any recommendations for another Vehicle Recovery System? Thanks in advance for your help. John P.
  6. Not a bad idea. This is a convertible though. But I’ll give it a shot tomorrow. Thanks John P
  7. Yes. Please see attached. Is it possible the bars look clean the rumble seat in place? John P.
  8. I have just purchased a beautiful fully restored 1935 Buick Special 46C. I do have a few questions. In the rumble seat compartment there is a long cloth sleeve holding two long metal bars painted the same color as the car. What are these for? This car was restored over 10 years ago and there are a few cosmetic touch ups I will need to do where the paint is worn. Is there a good source for paint for 1935 Buicks? The color is said to be Raleigh Blue. Thanks in advance for your help. John Payne
  9. I am looking for a jack and tool kit for a 1939 Cadillac LaSalle Coupe. I have been unable to find a picture or a part number for the jack or tool kit that is standard for this car. Does anybody have info regarding this or can your direct me to a website that might help? John P. new member
