  1. OK Mike: Winston is on the right track. Vacuum leak first, next, fuel dump. That's it! If there is a fuel problem start with a super duper inspection of the tank. They can get caca in the system which is very fine and can pass the fuel filter gumming up the needle and seat and other internal components. Our mutual friend Father Time misses nothing. Mitch
  2. OK KReed: The black accents are ooh, la la. That's what makes those 64 turbine caps really pop after Turbinator gets done working his magic on them! Mitch
  3. OK Buick People: This could a good one if.....it runs solid. Nice ingredients as far as color, equipment and model. I could get it looking fantastic as I have all the parts and I'm a professional detailer but.....the unknown is the killer. The crap presentation would require an in person look, parts inventory, test drive and get it way up in the air. I'm gonna guess the seller's got much more than 8 grand in it too. He ain't ready to cry uncle yet so we'll probably be seeing it for a while. Mitch
  4. OK D: All First-Gen Rivs are the same and they are available used for very reasonable. Polish 'em up? Still reasonable. Mitch
  5. OK Buick People: This is a beater and would make a beautiful car if you spend a LOTTA dough on it. Aside from the green interior which is not my favorite it's ...really rusty. Oh, it has a noise in the engine. No a/c? For this car a/c is a nice feature as cruising in the East in the Summer and it does NOT have it. This is one of those that if it gets thrown at you for a real cheap price you could have fun making mud pies with it and move on. Don't spend much on this one. Mitch
  6. OK Fabian: Where you at? I have several but don't ship. Mitch
  7. OK Adam: Get a harbor freight steamer. Works great. Soap? Super Clean 10:1 with 8 drops of Dawn dishwashing liquid. Spray lightly, let dwell a bit steam off. Wipe with a microfiber. First, use a test panel to get the hang of it. WA LA. Mitch
  8. OK Jay; I have one. PM me for more info. Mitch
  9. OK Buick People: Actually....looks pretty good. It seems really solid too. The price? While I'm not interested one couldn't find a decent one for free and get it to this condition for 20G'z. Still. Drive it, look at it very closely and get it way up in the air to see the underneath. The paint? Will it pop after a 2-step correction or is it just shiny? Mitch
  10. OK Buick People: Salvage title. READ CAREFULLY..... !). Big government consumer activists wanted to protect the public from buying something that could have been tainted somehow, thus a salvage or branded title. The problem is that it only means the title was branded "salvage". It doesn't help anyone because it DOES NOT DISCLOSE (some states may differ) what transpired. It could have been a titling issue, damage, but what kind?? Perhaps an insurance pay-off due to theft....and what were the circumstances behind the payoff??? Again, unless one knows and trusts the principals invo
  11. OK Ted: I think an automotive paint store can computer match anything. Mitch
  12. OK Buick People: This is a $3,000 car. I have seen a really beautiful 60 Flattop sell recently for between 15 and 23K. Mitch
  13. OK John: i had my tank coated. it was drilled on both sides so there were 4 entry points and media blasted. Cleaned and then sprayed with an epoxy. I have cars that should look that good. No more problems. $300 in San Leandro, CA. A 1960 Buick tank is IDENTICAL to a First-gen Riviera. just the filler neck is angled differently. The problem with my tank was microscopic particulate matter getting past the fuel filter messing up the carb. Mitch
  14. OK Arnulfo: I'm saying that there is a scientific procedure used to diagnose any mechanical malfunction. This case? it could be fuel, it could be electrical and it could even be mechanical. Having a starting point and eliminate each system from there. It is NOT simple. Mitch
