  1. A couple cars in Canada, both in Canadian Dollars. The Chrysler needs a bit of reassembly and who knows what else. The Buick looks well kept but could use an engine bay cleanse.

    At the airport now on my way east for Hershey.


    Not a lot on my shopping list this time but one thing I'd like to do is say howdy and put faces to names that post regularly on this forum, and add so much to this wonderful on-line community.


    Where can I find you three, and/or any other regular posters?


    (Restorer 32 RWO 8-17, Matt Harwood Corral B67-69, and Walt G (across from RNG 10-11) are already flagged on my maps.)


    Photo below is from Hershey 2010... my good friend Jerry and I drove the '47 Dodge 3,300 mile from Edmonton, AB to PA. Following the meet we parked it at a friend's place in VIrginia, picked it up in the spring and returned clockwise via Florida, Texas, Colorado and points between. A most memorable journey.

    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."

  3. 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!
