  1. a factory 400hp 400ft/tq V6 is a pretty mean machine. That puts my LeSabre 350 to shame <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> I wonder if it really feels like 400 horses though...time for a test drive! Adam
  2. I'd love to see a picture of one of these oddities:) I have a good idea of what one may look like in my mind, but I really have no idea. Adam
  3. Bill, Roberta just took that from the press release she provided in her post...I agree with you though <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> The aztek influence is definitely apparent here...let's not do that again. Adam
  4. I had NO idea that's what they were...no wonder I've never seen one. Thanks for your replies! Adam
  5. Could someone explain what this is exactly? Maybe a picture if possible... There are so many different steering wheel options on these early 70's cars that I can't keep track. Thanks, Adam
  6. Looks real good...I took the liberty of resizing the photo you sent me and I am posting it for all to see. It's still a little large, but at least we can see it <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
  7. Bill, Sounds like a great car! Where are you located? Can we/I see some pictures? Post them here or send them to my email-- smrtin17@aol.com Adam
  8. I'm not necessarily speaking for myself when I say this, but I think you get more respect and response if people know who you are...you become one of our friends. Welcome to the Forum! <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> Adam
  9. It doesn't take 2 minutes to register for this forum. If it was insane like some other sites I would be concerned...but to me this was a very easy thing to do and it was instant. Even the V8buick site was a little more problematic than I would have wanted. With the confirmations through email and all that. I like the changes. If you want to ask a question and get professional answers from people who really know their sh*t, then it is worth the time to register. That's why I'm here...to learn and grow my knowledge of the cars I love - Buicks. Adam
  10. This is becoming quite the head scratcher. What kind of carb are you running? Adam
  11. here here! I had a guy rip my head off for criticizing the paint job of a car in a particular lot in Staunton, IL. Some of you might know which lot that is. Funny thing is, I bet he was the one that was responsible for the ridiculous price tag. His post was Anonymous. If you have the guts to say something bad, then take credit for it. Adam - Proud of my stupidity <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
  12. I had an occurence that when I had a large amplifier for my stereo system hooked up it drew a lot of current from the battery and created a pretty bad hesitation for a long time. I finally ripped it out and figured out the problem. Adam
  13. That was a little bit more than I want to spend...I am getting rid of this car that is in the photo so I will need the cap also. Can you provide me with a picture? Adam
  14. HAHA! Grab an 800cfm quadrajet and go to town...make surethe QJ is in working order though Adam
  15. I am looking for a 4 spoke sport wheel for my Buick...yes I said Buick. I like the look of the 4 spoke wheel as opposed to the buick 3 spoke. But if anyone here has a buick wheel, don't hesitate to shout out to me. It should look something like this: Thanks, Adam smrtin17@aol.com
  16. I am looking for a good sport wheel for my car. I have one from an olds on my buick right now and I would like another one like it. It has 4 spokes. If anyone has a Buick 3 spkoe sport wheel with the fat wheel I would be interested. I included pics of the thick wheel I want. I am also posting this in the olds forum to see if I get any bites over there. The olds forum is so dead..nobody ever posts over there. Thanks, Adam
  17. glavin! um...Have you made sure the exhaust system is clear? something is not letting the engine breathe like it should I suspect. This is odd...just pull it out and throw in a 455. Adam
  18. good luck finding one. Is it so bad you have to replace the whole thing? Or can you cut some out and fab the rest? Adam Sounds like a basket case to me!
  19. check compression. if you find one cylinder that is low, you have a leaking valve, which can cause hesitation on acceleration. check timing. (I might have said that already, I don't remember) Adam
  20. olds had the release button on the back middle towards the top of the shell. Adam
  21. Where are you located? Can you send a few pics to my email address? smrtin17@aol.com Thanks, Adam
  22. very nice...especially with the buick emblem on the front grille staring you in the face. Adam
  23. Here is a link to Year One's website...it is a link directly to the Interior Buick Parts and stuff. http://www.yearone.com/serverfiles/fbshopmain2.asp?cat=2 Hope this helps out. Adam
