  1. Found 'em all.... with a little help. Do another one, Tom, do another one!!!
  2. They're in Minneapolis, and sell it via their website: http://www.atmosklear.com
  3. In case anyone checks back here, the bad smells (mouse pee) in my old Buick are pretty much gone now. A combination of a jug of AtmosKlear and an ozone generator I found on eBay did the trick. That AtmosKlear is WAY more effective than OdoBan. (It had better be, as it's mighty expensive stuff.)
  4. In '53, the Supers, Roadmasters and Skylark convertibles had the Dynaflow automatic with the 322 V8 (Buick's first year for V8's). The Specials had either Dynaflow or a straight stick, with the old straight 8 engine.
  5. Yep... I checked the two vent channels you mentioned, although the one on the right contains the heater fan; when I run the fan, no smell emits, so I think I'mj safe there. The left vent is indeed large enough to accomodate the various critter configurations you described. An earlier poster suggested that a dead skunk would get rid of mouse pee fragrance, and I'm thinking a skunk would fit easily in the left vent if I remove the grill. I'll let you know how that goes. Yeah...four years. When I took it apart, I figured it would be four weeks.
  6. Yes, Mary the daughter drives. It's a little tough to come down too hard on her messy room, given the similar condition of a lot my "areas" (garage, workshop, etc.). Thanks for the tip on the ozone. I've got high hopes for this ozone thing.
  7. Sounds like either the dead skunk solution or the mega-ozone shock treatment would take care of your 17-year-old's room. I haven't decided which to use yet for our own 17-year-old's room. We're afraid to go in there. I think she may have had it land-mined.
  8. My ozone machine should arrive next week... it's a big'un, one of those "shock treatment" kind that you plug in and run for cover. Someone told me not to overdo it, or it'll bleach/fade my car interior and make it rust faster. Well, if it gets rid of the stench, I'm all for it. Convey my thanks to your odor-expert girlfriend. You didn't mention where "down here" is that is home to skunks, but we've got 'em "up here" in Minnesota too. They seem to compete with the raccoons for most road kills.
  9. Reading all the posts in this and other forums generated by my original sad tale of mice and their byproducts, I've now got quite the mix of creatures and/or substances on my mind to keep me awake tonight, including but not limited to mice, mice pee, mice poop, mice nests, mice carcasses, vinegar, cinammon, apples, hunks of leather, charcoal, OdoBan, AtmosKlear, ozone gas generators, methane gas generators (human), skunks (living and/or dead), bleach, chlorine gas, a deer carcass possibly hanging from my radiator, pet store odor killers, spiders, garlic, moldy drippy air conditioners and gosh, the list goes on. When I hit on The Cure, I'll let everyone know. Tom Heimerman

  11. So what you're saying is that I'm going to have to obtain two dead skunks... one for Drive, and one for Reverse (it's a Dynaflow). Will I need a third one on my lap for Park?
  12. Thanks, T&A, and everyone else too. I've got an ozone generator arriving next week (I'll also use it on musty old farmhouses, which I restore for a living), and will let you know if/when/what works. If nothing works, then that match and gasoline idea will start to make more sense...
  13. Gosh, this is a tough choice... should I load up the car with vinegar, cinammon, scraps of leather or a dead skunk? Maybe all four will do the trick. I'm gonna need a pretty big blender.
  14. As I type this, a bowl of vinegar with cinammon is cooling off in my odiferously challenged Buick. Hey, I'll try anything. Something tells me, though, that it's gonna take a lot more than this. I'm sure I'll have to keep pulling apart the inside of my car in search of more Mouse Hotels.
  15. Thanks, Pete. Yes, I've tried some other forums, including the Buick Club of America (of which I've been a member for a few years). My question was so general and non-era-specific that I figured this would be a good place to ask it too.
