    Wanted 1956 engine/tranny Century, Super, Roadmaster!

    I have an 160K 1956 322 from my parents 56 Century 66R was never apart, only used Quaker State 10-30 and have some of the other parts you are looking for, located in Flint, MI. I don't think I have the Dynaflow, I believe I may have sold that, but it could be here. email me if you are interested, can probably make you a deal on several shelves of stuff.

    1984 Buick Riviera

    Just a quick update, my friends found a home for this Riviera!
  4. Keith, there was a change, I don't remember what it is, but hopefully Pete Phillips can explain.
  5. Probably cause some guy named Mansfield said let's put a bar on these trucks to make the leveler activate without a person pushing a button.

    1984 Buick Riviera

    Thanks, Derek! I know how nice these cars were/are. My first choice for my first car was a 1979 Riviera "1979 Motor Trend Car of the Year!" but being a new employee in 1979 was not eligible for the GM discount right away, looking back I should have asked for it, the payment was going to as much as my apartment rent and so I bought a POS Skyhawk! Bought an '85 Riv for Mommy in 85 it's gone NY salt ate it up. I'm going to revisit this one next week to see what we can do with it, carry on with positive comments, this tearing down of posts is not becoming of this should be 'elite' group..

  14. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 15, 2018 CONTACT Caitie O’Neill 810-237-3443 Marketing@SloanLongway.org Sloan Museum acquires 1968 Buick LeSabre Donated vehicle carries slice-of-life stories from family history Flint, MI – October 15, 2018 – Sloan Museum has added a 1968 Flint-built Buick LeSabre to its Automotive Collection, generously donated by Carol and Jim Lenas. The Buick carries a family history with it, and will help the museum to present stories about family life, travel, migration, automotive culture, consumer culture, and more. Carol Lenas’s father was a Colonel in the Army, stationed at Detroit Arsenal Army Base in Warren, MI in 1968, when the family purchased the LeSabre at a Detroit dealership for about $8,000. “We got a deal because the 1969s were arriving and the dealership wanted to clear out the old inventory,” Lenas said. The family drove it around the country as they moved from Michigan to Virginia and Alabama, and vacationed with a pop-up camper in tow. All told, the LeSabre has travelled to 48 states. The car was also passed through the family as children learned to drive, and they took turns using it while away at college. “The three daughters in our family each learned how to drive the Buick in the ‘70s in Alabama,” Lenas said. “I had to take my driver’s license test in it and parallel park. Not an easy feat for such a long car!” Sloan Museum is honored to be the custodian of these memories and will preserve the 1968 LeSabre in its current state, since the wear and tear is so integral to its story. “It’s very unique in our collection in that it has a very personal story and one that I think many people can relate to,” Sloan Museum’s Curator of Collections Geoff Woodcox said. “The LeSabre captures something that’s a part of many people’s lives—the kids learning to drive, family vacations, etc. It’s got dings, scratches, and rust, but that’s part of the story, too. It isn’t a showpiece; it’s a working family car and is one-of-a-kind in our collection.” Sloan Museum’s Automotive Collection totals 100 vehicles, all with historic ties to Flint and Genesee County. Over 30 vehicles are currently on display at Sloan Museum's Courtland Center Mall location, and 11 more are on display at Sloan Museum in the Flint Cultural Center. From carriages to cars and trucks, each vehicle helps tell a story about how the automotive industry shaped life in Flint—and how Flint helped put the world on wheels. Sloan Museum’s hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday, at both the Flint Cultural Center and Courtland Center Mall locations. Admission for Genesee County residents is $3 per person at the Courtland Center Mall location, thanks to support from the Arts & Culture Millage. Admission to the Flint Cultural Center location is free to all through December 9, thanks to support from the University of Michigan-Flint, the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, and the Ruth Mott Foundation.
