  1. I think what Lamar is say'n is don't poke the sleeping bear...
  2. Question: Is Mack a member of the BCA?
  3. AMEN!! I agree with you Adam. Have to drag me kicking and screaming! And yes, like you, I've been asked to throw a hat into the ring. No way.
  4. Not a lot of phones out there at that time....phone number was "5"...
  5. https://elmira.craigslist.org/pts/d/millport-1949-buick-roadmaster/7022098913.html
  6. There have been a few. I don’t have the links at my fingertips. Many more to come.
  7. That was a typo, Ed. I will correct. Thank you for bringing my mis-speak to my attention.
  8. We are very active on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/148542922394/
  9. Ed, I am NOT saying the models made in S Korea or China are junk, I'm sure they are not. I will say they are not built by US workers and thus are jobs lost for the US economy.
  10. Just like it never rains in Southern California...
  11. Grey plastic were also used on the G-Body (Regal/T-Type/Grand National). Points have been known to be deducted if the caps were not grey while being judged, right Roberta? ;-). They are available from several G-Body parts suppliers.
  12. I hate auto-correct.... That's what I meant. Sorry for wrong direction.
  13. Encore = North Korea, Envision is produced in China. Neither of which will have the opportunity to grace my garage.
  14. No, that is definitely not a 1971-73 Riv frame/suspension. Parts may be, but it seems to be a combination of 1956 and parts of the Riv frame/suspension. Another thing noted in passing...at least sweep out the trunk before you take photos.
  15. Location? Judging by a phone number I could see in one of the photos, it looks like it could be New York.
  16. Sorry if I missed it, but your general location would be nice to know.
  17. Actually Ed, the 455 (and 400 and 430) Buick big blocks weigh less than the small block chevy. I'd be much more concerned about twisting the car in half than the weight on the front end, that is if you could ever get it to hook. If I am not mistaken, those years of Skylarks are unibodies. Careful where you cut for clearance. The flywheels will not interchange, to answer the OP's initial question. Anything can be made to work but at what cost.
  18. I would contact https://quadrajetpower.com Great people and are into Buick's.
  19. Link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1954-Buick-Skylark/233280846673?hash=item36509f3b51:g:g8IAAOSwN6FdIVmi
  20. This is my best friends creation. Causes quite a stir wherever it goes.
  21. For some reason, the link does not work, at least for me, to the minutes.
  22. Buckets were an option and sometimes not even available on a GS. The VIN is your best ally as all GS's had a specific VIN that was different than a GS (there is 1 exception but not in the year's you are looking into).
  23. Yep, check out http://www.clearimageautomotive.com/chevy_impala_ss_tubular_transmission_cross_members.php Brand new and should bolt in when you give the proprietor the info on your set up.
  24. There was a mounting bracket that screwed into the floor and then the “box” attached to that bracket. They were simple brackets that many people either handmade a substitute or mounted the box itself to the floor sans any form of bracket.
  25. You would probably be able to sell several sets, especially gears in the 3.23-3.42:1 range.
