  1. Well, no one has to worry about me bidding on this one now.  Sometime in the next month, I'm driving up to MN to drag an orphan and a parts car home.  So, I imagine the 62 will be on the block as soon as I can get the interior back together.


    Car ADD in full force this Winter!

  2. Nice!  I guess I haven't logged onto the Performance/Modified forum in a while. 


    A friend of mine had an odd issue with his.  He found out that there was some sort of electrical interference when they air cleaner was installed.  He ended up installing a non-ferrous/non-conductive air cleaner stud on the FI unit.  cleared up the issue.  I'll read up a little more on his problem and let you know in case you end up with gremlins.

  3. I went to the Googlez and searched for 1962 Buick Electra literature.  Came up with the appearance that the spare I have here looks strikingly similar.  Unfortunately, no one makes that size tire with that size whitewall anymore.  So I opted for a 235/75R15 radial from everyone's favorite tire supplier, Coker.  It has a 1.5" whitewall which is just a touch bigger than the whitewall on the spare.  I have used these tires before and I love the look.  I had them on my white Centurion convertible, and my buddy Hank had them on his 62 Electra convertible.


    I really love the way the Buick road wheels look on Hank's car.  Too bad I sold the set I bought from Riviera Bob.
