  1. I must say, I absolutely love seeing the Dodge around Edmonton. Makes me want to go out and buy a similar car and daily drive the thing. The wood roof rack looks perfect on the car, especially loaded up with period luggage! Overall the car just has the perfect "look."
  2. I just saw this appear on eBay. Is this still for sale?
  3. Thanks for the reply. I had a read of that a few days ago but did not find the technical information I am looking for.
  4. Hey everyone, Looking at purchasing my first Buick. I have found a couple nice sedans, 1931 80's with the 344ci 8. I have has several other vehicles from this era, up through the early 40's, so I am familiar with the basics of driving a vehicle from this era, but never a luxury maker (Fords and Chevy's). Both cars have undergone full restorations and are in almost identical condition, the only difference is one has wire wheels, sidemounts and high speed gears, while the other has wood wheels with standard gearing and a single rear spare. Both cars have 6V alternators already. I plan to tour this vehicle extensively, and it will almost serve as a daily for the nicer days of the year. I have not been able to tour classics much before so I never encountered any problems related to heavy driving. It will see a good mix of city, highway (reasonable speeds), mountains, and dirt roads. What are some of the "gotcha's" and problems associated with this marque, or is there somewhere I can be directed to that? Necessary preparations to be made? I have heard these are some of the best drivers of the era, and am excited to learn more about owning and running them! I heard the Buick folks on this forum are the best around!
