  1. Automotive Information Clearinghouse These guys tracked my Centurion. 2100 made, 500 surviving REGISTERED in the country. 8 in Missouri. Good folks. I think the charge for doing this was $19. Box 1746 La Mesa, CA 91944 619-447-7200 service@automotiveinformation.com
  2. What color is this car? Sounds awfully close to one I just looked at here in St. Louis. Even has a 430 and Stage1 tags. It was actually originally a 70GS350. See attachement.
  3. Well, since you're semi-close to Lake of the Ozarks, just drive it up there and dump the lake water on it.....and watch the paint and woodgrain melt right off!! <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> Actually, if it's the adhesive woodgrain, then I would try using some heat source - like a hair dryer or heat gun. Are you trying to save some of it?
  4. The guy that bought my LeSabre now has a 73 Electra... Last night someone stole his fender skirts and is looking for replacements ASAP! Anyone?? Going to the paint shop within the next week.
  5. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I have a friend who used MSD 8.5 mm wires for a big block chevy. Looked pretty good to me. </div></div> Ditto....I use them on my 455. The #2 wire is slightly short, but I jsut route it under the AC bracket and it fits fine! Larry is actually the one who told me about the wires. Thanks Larry.... <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

    Where is it?

    *Under the rear seat *IN the rear seat - it can be tucked in the springs This also goes for the front seat as well. *Under the carpet *Behind any of the door panels *Under the dash/behind the dash *Under the package tray That's all I can think of right now. I'm sure there are other fun places to stash them...
  8. The 2 letter code should be on the machined block surface (deck) that the heads rest on. I have attached a picture of the location that the code is on. The picture consists of 2 spark plugs. If you look between the spark plugs, the actual surface of the block shows. It's dead center in the picture. This is where the code is.
  9. Where did you look on the engine to fine the WER code? And what information are you trying to find about the engine? There should be a 2 letter code on the block deck just to the right of the dipstick tube. That will tell you the year and model/build of engine.
  10. There you are! I knew you couldn't stay away for too long <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> It's good to see you post...so we all know you're still a Buick man/family! Not to be too pushy, but are you considering coming back to the club? Oktoberfest is coming up! <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> I know everyone would be ecstatic to see you.
  11. You can get new ones from glass replacement stores...interested in new stuff?
  12. Have you checked behind the dash?? Read this: http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=25943
  13. Centurions are a little different than GS's. I would recommend that you wait for the manual so you do it right the first time <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> And Centurions are a pain in the rear to work on. <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />
  14. Throw that chabby block in the trunk, and drop in a Buick 455 <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> Kiddin... Here's another turbo forum... www.turbobuicks.com Good luck!
  15. TTT Desperate <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
  16. Can you send some pics? How much? adamm@buickpartsdirectory.com If nothing else, I would like to come see the car...I'm a big fan of the 72 Pace Cars. Where in St. Louis are you located? St. Peters here <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
  17. Look in an Old Car price guide...find as many as you can and see what the 75's are going for in the book. Also, have the car appraised. That might help....although it's hard to look at a car and tell the value BEFORE it was wrecked. Anyone else have any ideas?
  18. wow!!! That seems too good to be true. The car looks great in the picture...I wonder if it's rotted all to hell though. If I had some dough to spend, I'd definitely be calling the seller.
  19. heheh... Guess I didn't read that in the title. <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />
  20. Thanks for your prompt response....I think I'm going to pass on this one. I should concentrate on things I really need <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> instead of cool things like this <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />
  21. Interested.. Any idea on how much shipping would be to St. Louis? 63376 zip Also, is there any mounting hardware included with it?
