  1. Try these links to see more information on the car. Kankakee: Tomb of the unknown Buick - The Daily Journal The Big Picture: March 20, 2010 - The Daily Journal Kankakee: The buried Buick joke came with 38-year wait for punch line - The Daily Journal If these don't work go to the Kankakee Daily Journals web site www.daily-journal.com and do a search on 1958 Buick and they should come up. My sister works in Kankakee and just gave the hard copy of the newspaper today. What a great story!
  2. I had an 02 and now have an 04. Unfortunally I didn't plan on it. the 02 was in an accident and was totaled. A week later I was able to find another marron one with slightly different interior. I bought it. I really like the "Vous" as we call it. Unless you know about the accident no one in the neighborhood knows it's a different one.
  3. I know its not a movie but what about Buicks in music videos? I remember the Go Gos song "Our Lips Are Sealed" The video featured the girls riding around in, if I'm correct, a 1960 LeSabre convertible. My dad had a 60 LeSabre sedan so I've always liked the video. No matter what you think of the Go Gos the car is great!!! The video can be found on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrYM2Gt9sMw
  4. Does anyone know what the original equipment tire brand was on the 2002 Rendezvous? I am the second owner of a 2002 and I think the rear are original equipment. They need replacing. Thanks for your help.
  5. I remember seeing them. A friend of mine had one on his farm. It was in great condition. I asked his dad if I could have it. I still have 25 years later and it hangs in my garage with Buick banners I have gotten from dealerships. It has been a conversation starter.
  6. There is another one on ebay now. I didn't see the first one but this one looks great. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2486165355
  7. My first ride was a 1960 LeSabre Sedan. That is the car I was taken home in from the hospital. (I'll be 40 in May) My dad bought the car brand new two years before he married my mom. (Their still together but now drive Chrysler products) After the 60 LeSabre they had a 68 LeSabre. They drove Chevys for a while then got an 84 LeSabre which I bought from them and drove until it died. I now have another 84 LeSabre (daily driver) an 87 Century and an 89 LeSabre T-type (my Toycar). Guess that first ride in the 60 LeSabre put Buick in my blood!
  8. A while back I found a picture of two LeSabre T-Type limos. I actually saw one on the Tri-State Tollway in Chicago years ago. I have searched the internet and cannot find anything on them. Does anyone have any info on them? Does anyone know where one is? It looks really cool. My son thinks it would be a great way to go to school. Thanks for the help. Click on Attachments for a picture.
  9. I'm still looking for tickets to the banquet. Anyone? E-mail me at buickman@illicom.net
  10. I am looking for 2 tickets for the banquet on Saturday during the Natl. Meet for myself and my son. If you have two available please e-mail me at " buickman@illicom.net Thank you.
  11. Thanks for all the advice. I think I will look for someone who can do the job for me. I don't know if I'm that patient.
  12. I have a 1984 LeSabre. The car is in great shape but now the headliner is sagging. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to repair and/or stop it from getting worst? My 87 Century's headliner is a major mess right now and I would like to stop the LeSabre from getting in that condition. Thanks for any help.
  13. I am wondering what was the original tire (brand, etc.) that was put on the 84 LeSabre. I do not have a brochure from that date to look at. Does anyone out there have that information? Appreciate your help.
