  1. 719 in central Colorado
  2. Rivnut did a color comparison "using "Buick Green" from Classic Buicks on the left, "Buick Green" from CARS in the center, and Alpine Green (Detroit Diesel) on the right." Then elanmike posted gorgeous photos of his engine compartment "Painted with the Hirsh green paint." So -- is "Hirsh paint" one of the three greens tested by Rivnut or another?
  3. I wonder if that sheds any light on the mysterious asterisk/star in the paint code (absent in this example) Craig
  4. Bernie You asked for just the accessories to be decoded, but: 64 = model year 4747 = Riviera 2 door sports coupe FB = Flint MI Trim 608 = Black Paint SS = Sahara Mist ACC 2K = Air Conditioning 4F = Remote Mirror 5z = Seat Belts (NOTE: 5W = Seat Belts with Retractor) HTH - Craig
  5. Tom Have you a trusted friend with a cell phone? I don't use Yahoo but when I had issues with my Gmail account, they send an authentication number to your cell that you type into the on-screen login effort. Use you friend's cell number and have him/her standing by to give you your code off their phone. I say standing by cuz - with gmail, at least - the code (4-6 digit number) is good for a limited time period Craig
  6. Not at all sure how relevant this comment is, but I just installed dimmable LED light in my hobby shop -- Craig
  7. Ed I copy/pasted this thread in an e-mail to Paul. Chris was more than just a person who bought a car from Paul. Thanks for you input, though Craig
  8. Guys A favor addressed to any who knew Chris Wolfe well and is willing to reach out: My friend's name is Paul. He asks if someone who knows what happened to Chris would contact him. If so, please PM me (Craig Balzer) and I'll provide Paul's email. Thanks, guys Craig
  9. Jim -- thanx for the info. A friend of mine sold Chris a car a while back that, in hindsight, he regretted selling. I passed along your information on Chris to him. Thanx again Craig
  10. I am curious if Mr Wolfe is active on the bulletin board? Author of "Buick Riviera, 1963-1973 (Classic Motorbooks Photofacts)". or if anyone knows how to contact him? TIA Craig
  11. Jim How many 63's do you have in your database? How many 63's were made? Inquiring minds want to know Craig
  12. It is difficult to get any images because the motor is tucked between the front bumper and radiator. Mine is a 65 Riviera Gran Sport Attached are two photos - captions tell the perspective. I can (try to) take more photos if you ID angle you need I have never taken the motor apart nor off the car but -- to me -- that small L bracket looks like the one on which the motor sits (first photo)
  13. Art -- it is my understanding that octane boosters are a waste of time and money. The label may say that the bottle raises the octane in the tank by one point and one would logically assume that 93 octane than becomes 94 octane. Nope. 😔 One bottle of octane booster in a tank of 93 octane gas raises the octane level to 93.1. 🤑 for the manufacturers. Craig
  14. You all do know the difference between a sadist and masochist, right? A sadist says "Hurt me, hurt me". And a masochist says "Nooo, I don't think I am."
