  1. My daughter's '96 Century doesn't have a bracket on the front bumper to attach a license plate. We've moved to South Dakota and there's 2 plates on cars here. Anyone have an idea or has run into this, does Buick make one that bolts on. I haven't found one. I'll probably buy some universal one and have to modify the hell out of it to make it fit - Murphy's Law and all. Thanks in advance. :confused:
  2. Well the dirty deed is done !! I've completed the sale of my Roadie. I had the buyer send me his banks's customer service card of a person that my bank could contact. He sent a Bank of America business card and they were expecting a call. Once the cashiers check was in my hands I went to my bank and they called the person on the business card. They verified that funds were taken out of the buyers account and used for the cashiers check. My bank also put a hold for 5 days on the funds. The money is now available to me and I transferred it to another account in a different bank. I sent him the t
  3. Well, I appreciate all the good advice everyone has posted. After much thought I've decided to accept a cashiers check. I've told the buyer that he must provide the name and phone # for the bank where the cashiers check is drawn from and a contact there for my bank to call and verify the check has actually been paid for already. Once that's done to my satisfaction the check will have a hold placed on it for at least 10 days by my bank. The buyer has provided me with his personal info, as I've already run the reverse check on his phone #. It is for his company. As I stated earlier his emails ha
  4. Thanks Derek. I'll post when she's gone. That will be a sad day I think.
  5. JohnD1956 - I didn't get one. Can you email me at : snelson12@verizon.net ??
  6. I've got a buyer for my car. He wants me to send him a copy of my title so he can see if there's any leins on it. He will then send me a cashier's check for the full amount. Once the check clears he will come get the car. He also wants my address etc. (to send check to). Does this seem reasonable? He seems like a nice guy and all, I just want to make sure I'm not giving too much info. Any suggestions for a rookie selling his first car this way. I'm used to face to face. Thanks.
  7. I'm selling my 1950 Roadmaster 2 dr hardtop to help pay for my daughter's last 2 years of college. It's a model 76R. It is a really nice car, better than a 10 footer but not a 100 point car by any means. Probably a real good #2 car. It is located in Dunedin Florida. Lamar almost bought her a few years ago - and he could give an honest opinion of her condition when he saw her. The price is $19,000 and worth every penny. If your looking for a sweet 50's Buick cruiser this one may be something that interests you. I'm going to try and attach a few pics, but I never seem to be able to accomplish th
  8. Mr. Earl - Glad to see your alive and well. Hope the family is in good health. I still have that royal maroon Roadie down here in Florida. Took her out to a cruise-in last month and people really enjoyed her. They are superior cars and have a real high "cool factor" in my opinion. Pete - I would try and find a Fulton visor if you can, they add a nice gangster look eh ! Good luck on the restoration, and contact me for any info or pics to reference if needed. Merry Christmas to all Buiick lovers !!
  9. I was able to to the v8 site today at lunch. Thanks God it's back !!! Hope this doesn't get deleted because I mentioned "God".
  10. I appreciate all the info Joe and rlbleeker. I will give it a shot some time later this week when I get a few spare minutes and the 'honey-do list' is completed. At least with only laying out $70 for all three I can tinker around a little bit and maybe learn something. I love tinkering anyway. Thanks again and I'll post some pics with 'before' and maybe some 'after' if all goes well. Have a good day guys!
  11. I need some help from my Buick brothers! I just purchased 2 gauges and a clock for a 1950 Buick ( my Roadie's all work fine ) . I'm trying to figure out how to open them up (get the glass off of and try to clean them up and make them look better. They aren't that bad either! If I can get them cleaned up inside real nice I'd get them re-chromed. The amp/temp gauge has the sensor still attached to the temp gauge portion. There are 2 nuts screwed onto the top portion that have a gasket type material that is quite large. I will post pics later this week of the back and side views of all 3. How do
  12. Joe - Would the NAPA Gold 1126 also fit my 1950 Roadmaster (320 cu.in. straight eight)? Thanks in advance, Steve.
  13. There is this stuff called "Goo Gone" that is sold at Walgreens I think, and I'm sure a lot of hardware stores etc It removes sticky junk from stickers, glue and a lot of stuff. If any of you have ever used it you would love it. Hope this helps.
  14. While I was at work on Friday my wife called up to the Buick dealership (Dick Norris Buick) where I went for my supposed warranty work and asked the service manager who to call and complain. My wife can be a bulldog at times! He gave her the # to GM Customer Assistance, not the same as the Buick Customer Assistance I've been dealing with. She spoke with 2 people and gave them my case #, and both were very interested in keeping me from going to the local TV station's consumer advocate (whatever there called) and the newspaper. One woman is supposed to call back tomorrow, yes on Saturday and spe
  15. Well are you ready for this, the Buick Customer Assistance rep called back tonight and I'm totally floored. He told me there was nothing they can do for me because the 'in-service' date is correct. "They" did so more research and found out that my car was titled before I bought it!!! Can you believe this crap, it takes them 3 weeks to find out that the "new" car I bought wasn't new - it was used. And they can do nothing for me, and "is there anything else we can do for you Mr. Nelson"!! I have a contract for a new car that wasn't new. Was there fraud commited here or what? I don't know what to
