  1. At a BCA National, I attended a talk that Denny Manner gave regarding the Buick engines. He said that unless you were putting extreme stress on a engine, say from heavy towing or racing, then lead additives are not necessary.
  2. Very sad to hear this news. Joe was a fixture and a legend in the Buick community. My condolences to his family and his many friends.
  3. Hmmm....both of these cars were for sale awhile back-I remember the red one on eBay for sure. Not sure if these are still available or not. These pictures were copied from the ads I remembered- time to do some investigating. Thanks for the leads I appreciate it! Yes, I am a member of the BCA and there's maybe one or two of these cars listed in the last roster....I've already put a plug in for myself with one of the owners!
  4. Thanks for the encouragement! The full size Buick's have a large following in Europe, and that is where many of these cars have ended up. I haven't even come across a #3 example. The only cars I've found so far are parts cars- ones that are so far gone they wouldn't make sense to restore. I know there have to be a least a few nice examples left of what I'm looking for somewhere in this country. One day I will find the right car!
  5. Yes those should be present. '69 was the first year for the air cleaner decal, should be 430-especially on a supposed low mileage original.
  6. Nice car-but what's up with the 455 decal on the air cleaner lid? '69 was still the 430 engine.
  7. It sure is-a '59 LeSabre 2 door with the rare manual trans!
  8. Yes-the engine serial number indicates it is a large series block.I can get you measurements but the block has been tucked away in the garage so it may take a week to get to it.
  9. At the end of the day, we should all just be grateful to be alive and hopefully healthy enough to still drive and enjoy our cars and the old car hobby. Plus celebrate the fact that so many Buick's from years past have survived in ANY condition without having been recycled into refrigerators or tuna fish cans!
  10. Will be bringing air conditioning recharging equipment to the meet- (R12 and R134A) look for the posting on the bulletin board.
  11. I've gotten three sets of Vercelli classic tires and love them. They have a narrow whitewall which is correct for '60's and 70's cars, and they ride very smoothly. You can get them for around $60 each.
  12. Listing for a friend. See contact information in the pictures. Car is in New Mexico- originally from Dallas. Always a Southwest car.
