  1. As long as you don't tell me you found pocket change under the seat LOL Also, that car was a lady
  2. Probably modified in the 70's in an effort to navigate through the gas crisis
  3. If you buy this car today I will throw in the radio delete COVER for free
  4. Those combs look a lot more efficient than a set of popsicle sticks
  5. The stant radiator cap is always a nice finishing touch LOL PS Just got "Bonus points" for "reacting well'' from the web site by giving Jim a thumbs up for providing the picture. where do i click on the orwellian thumbs down? L
  6. If I was driving through a corn field like the guy in the top picture I guess the rear view don't matter so much? LOL
  7. Im guessing a low optioned car? it would not bother me a bit to not have an outside door mirror in a 1st gen. It probably takes more time angling my head to get a full view of the different angles of the rearward traffic through that little periscope than just turning my head around LOL the outside mirror is essentially a lump of chrome jewelry for the Buick
  8. never saw a 1st gen without either the tilt wheel or drivers side mirror options
  9. I wash once a year whether they need it or not LOL I use blue tape around the rear window, the C-Pillar trim etc. Then I use compressed air behind the same spots as we know where the water puddles PS my cars don't just sit in the garage all year, either.. I want to go thru tires and wear them out Caution: The bottom picture is for mature audiences only LOL
  10. I've learned to raise the hood after washing the car ( which I learned to do sparingly), that lift drains the water out of the "V" and behind the moulding
  11. Right LOL So if a 1/4"is NFG then a 1/2" must be really no good. earlier someone stated if you turn the crank and the rotor on the distributor moves without delay the chain if fine. Been using that rule of thumb since the 80's, hasn't failed me yet so I,m sticking with it.
  12. Pete i believe the number 64 riv=1353677 If that's what your looking at I'll take one Steve in Mass sending pm
  13. Tax Man, the core it replaced was done in 1995, the transmission cooler line in the bottom tank let loose so I had to fix that and as long as I had it out it was bulging a bit and some green seepage in the corners so had it done. So thats 25-30 years per core. Buy right, cry once. As opposed to 6 $200 radiators that last 4 years if lucky, the cost is cheaper and who wants to keep checking for corrosion in a radiator? There are other USA core suppliers that are fine, the Maine cores are HEAVY. Your local radiator shop can do the work as opposed to sending it to Maine and spending two way shipping, though they do the work also. They do high end stuff and I don't believe out cars warrant the artistry of a honeycomb radiator etc. But when it comes to a recore, let's put it this way: I don't drive around with gallons of spare antifreeze in my getaway cars LOL, plus made in USA cars deserve made in USA parts as opposed to soda can AL.. I try to keep my cars as original as reasonably possible. Steve 9236
  14. Always been more of a Mary Ann kind of guy lol
  15. there's a round reserve tank on the passenger side inner fender, the line from the engine is source. buy a manual for the schematic of the the rest of the hornets nest lol it's in the accessories chapter
