  1. God Bless our men and women who protect us!
  2. 72 Monte Carlo "Mr. Monte" 95 Buick Park Avenue "Green Hornet" (yes, it is green) 05 Buick LeSabre Limited "Pearl" (color is Crimson Pearl) 08 Buick Enclave "Ruby" (color is Red Jewel)
  3. With my personal excellent history with Buicks, I have no reason to dispute those findings. In fact, I received a JD Power survey for the first time, for my 2008 Buick Enclave. This Buick is even better than my previous 3 Buicks.
  4. I just a few days ago picked up my new Red Jewel Enclave CXL, trading in a 2000 Chevrolet Venture. It seems that the local dealer sold the 8 he had in less than a week and the demand is much greater than anticipated. I was not even considering a new car, but was so impressed with the Enclave which I saw when I brought my LeSabre in for service. They are now quoting 4 months for a "new" order, but they expect more in soon, those that were previously ordered for stock, and will probably be sold before they are delivered. The dealer bought 2 Enclaves from a Florida dealer because he was so desperate for inventory. Not that the Florida dealer could not sell the Enclaves, but 9 LaCrosses came with the deal. I guess he wants to move those LaCrosses more than he wanted to keep the Enclaves. Reported yesterday, the Michigan plant has increased the Enclave production allocation to 40%, with the balance being Saturn Outlooks and GMC Acadias. As a long time Buick owner, it is nice to see Buick having a "hot" vehicle in their line-up.
  5. Gene, How true it is.........and funny too! Having had cats when growing up, and a dog now, I will agree fully.
  6. According to this weeks Autoweek, Toyota is now offering incentives to sell the Pruis, 1.9% financing.
  7. 1) Tri-color tail lights: red for braking green for accelerating amber for decelerating 2) I don't know.....I guess it's time to go back to work.
  8. If I recall, there were 2 versions of the AMX, one of which was a fastback. Richard Teague? Is this a test?? <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
  9. AMX & Vixen? I love automotive trivia......
  10. American Motors had a concept car in the mid 60's with interchangeable body panels, fenders, hood & trunk lid, and also the doors could be interchanged. The name I think was Cavalier. Of course Chevrolet used Cavalier in later years.
  11. Bob, What that your red 57 Buick at the Dover GN? Beautiful car!!!
  12. Peter, Thank you for the reminder about vendor names. I purposely did not mention any.
  13. No argument from me about the deficient quality of the repro batteries. Mine failed not because it failed to take a charge (I keep it on a Battery Tender in the off season), but because the positive connection broke out of the battery. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />
