  1. This is not a big item but I am looking for a retainer for the trunk upholstery for my newly-acquired 90 convertible. I just put in a rebuilt power antenna (thanks to Barney) and when putting the upholstery back in place I discovered one of the retainers is missing. It's gray, about an inch long, about 1 1/4 across the top, and screws in. Can anyone recommend a source or have a couple to sell? Thanks Alan Oldfield BCA 15140 Rdiv 2251
  2. I am working on a 1999 project car. I would like to find a 95-99 parts car in the midwest. Any leads? I would like it to be fairly complete, not rusty. I need a variety of miscellaneous items and thought getting a mostly complete parts car would be the best way to go. I appreciate any tips! Alan Oldfield ROA#800
  3. For Sale: Rear spoiler from 1989 LeSabre T type. This was recently removed from my black '89 LeSabre T Type. It is in excellent, used, condition. This spoiler just recently developed a very small "bump" on the top, so I replaced it with an NOS. However, this used spoiler is a great piece to replace the old spoiler on your LeSabre T if it has developed a number of "bubbles" from age and wear. If you own a LeSabre T, you are familiar with how the spoilers warp over time. This one should serve you well on a driver LeSabre T for some time. See the last photo which shows the small bubble it has developed. No other warping has developed. Fits 1988-89 LeSabre T type. $50, plus actual shipping. Message me for more pix, and any questions. Thanks Alan O BCA# 15140

  5. Looking for advice on replacing power antenna on '99 Riv. Motor is not running. My mechanic says the Delco part number is discontinued. Any recommendations for a good replacement that looks right and fits right? Thanks Alan Oldfield ROA#800
  6. I think I have a blown speaker on the passenger side door in my '99 Riv with Concert Sound II. Anyone have advice on getting a replacement speaker(s)? Source? Hard to find or not? Thanks Alan Oldfield ROA #800
  7. I am seeking a source for the two hoses that come off the heater core on '99 Riviera (with automatic temp control). My mechanic can't find them; wondering if anyone else has counsel on where to find them, or experience replacing them (or a part number). Thanks Alan Oldfield ROA#800
  8. Hi My name is Alan Oldfield ROA #800 and I worked on the Silver Arrow registry for a number of years. I've collected a number of VINs, but it sounds like not as many as you have! I would be happy to help in any way I can. I purchased #105 new, and still have the box all the items came in. Perhaps I can help with some photos, etc It is exciting to learn more about the SAs. If I recall, I saw the GM owned SA at a show and it has an un-numbered dash plaque. Alan
  9. Hi Barney - Thanks too, from me, for the message you posted. I've been worried about hour Texas members. If anyone hears more about our Texas members impacted by Harvey, please let us know. Thanks Alan Oldfield
  10. Hi Ken I am not an insurance expert, but I've talked to people who are . But let me try to address a couple of your questions. The Board of Directors recently approved a new insurance carrier for liability for BCA events. Our overall liability increases from $2M to $9M. Our coverage very similar to what we've had with JC Taylor for years. In general terms, it provides liability insurance coverage should the BCA be sued for injuries/damage that happens at a BCA meet. Coverage includes the chapters. I cannot answer each of your questions specifically. As for moving vs static: the new coverage does provide for coverage of two motorsports events that are official BCA (or chapter) events annually. Each motorsports event (drag racing, autocross, a track tour, etc) has to be approved in advance by the insurance company. I know this is pretty general. The coverage is designed to protect the club and members at official club events. Thanks Alan Oldfield President, Buick Club of America
  11. This is just to clear up the current status of the BCA Modified Division. This Division was started and run by Keith Horsfall until this year when, around May, it was announced that he was shutting it down. Although Keith made that announcement, Bob Starzyk asked about the Division's status during the General Membership Meeting in Brookfield. At that point the Club President asked Bob if he would take on the task to re-organize the Division, and Bob accepted. During the Meet, Bob secured 15 signatures to ask for a new Charter from the BCA, however, a new Charter is not necessary. There being no material or substantial changes requiring a new Charter, the old Charter is considered reactivated, and the BCA looks forward to many more years of active participation by the BCA Modified Division. Our thanks to Bob for taking this assignment on, and we encourage all the BCA Modified Division members, and modified Buick owners, to support Bob in these efforts!
