  1. 1974. My first and so far, only driver's test. Took the test in my mother's 1968 Dodge Coronet 440. Gold ext., black int. I already owned a car, but it wasn't until I took it through NJ state inspection for the FIFTH TIME that my '62 Ponitac Starchief was legal. Even then it was a rattletrap. But it only cost me $75.00.

  8. Or perhaps a graveyard shift? (i kill me!)
  9. Dan, As always, eBay is a good source for shop manuals. That should give you the info you need to set your linkage. For personal advise, get ahold of Jim Hughes out of the Toledo, Ohio area. He's a member of the Buick Club of America, so if you are a member, you'll be able to find his contact info in the BCA roster. If you aren't a memeber, email me adn I'll send you his contact info.
  10. The '39 Buick that was in Casablanca is reputed to have been in the collection of the late Len Immke of the Immke dealerships in Columbus, Ohio. His collection was broken up several years ago, but I did get stick my head in the '39 that was allegedly in the movie. Now all I have to do is take the 60-mile trip to the north of Columbus to Malabar Farms, where Bogie & Bacall got married. Here's lookin' at you, kid.
  11. Dan, I think I recall some stuff from when I had work done on the Dynaflow on my '51 a few years ago. Your problem MAY just be that the shift linkage on your car is out of adjustment. On your car and mine, the shift detents are in the shift linkage and not in the transmission itself. At some point after my '51 was built, the detents were moved into the transmission. The upshot is that the valve controller on the tranny swings more or less freely and if the shift linkage is even a little out of adjustment, it can cause the tranny to work improperly even if there is nothing at all wrong with it. The shop manual gives specific and detailed instructions on how to adjust the shift linkage. That's what I'd check first. My recollection is a bit fuzzy, so you should have somebody verify my thoughts before you place any bar bets about your transmission. I hope this helps.
  12. Bob, Howyadoon? We met in Flintin'03. I still have my '51. Can you give me a shipping rate to 45242? I might be willing to snag those hubcaps. Got any photos you can forward? John
