  1. Sorry to hear this news. Bea and I worked with he and Debbie on the bus trips in Allentown. I was must grateful for there knowledge which made our work much easier. Condolences to Debbie and family. John
  2. Still running my '32 57S,as original. Just found some leaks in my heat riser, had it repaired and anxious to try it on the road. Running at stand-still seems fine and better than with the leaks. Appreciate all the comments, especially edinmass and Str8-8-Dave. I have electronic on my '86 Riviera and that work fine with the "newer" cars. Much better than the original. John
  3. PS: Good luck with the auction. Let us know, how it turns out. So far, both look like bargains. John
  4. To me, the front seats look as if they are just covered with after-market "seat covers" maybe covering original fabric. Anyone's guess about condition. My choice would be the 35, probably more rare. John
  5. Adam, Thanks for the info. I guesss the early bids did not mean much. John
  6. Lovely looking cars. Hope they run as good as they look! What part of Ireland do you live? My wife's parents were born there. John
  7. Fred, Sorry to hear of this decision during these times, but you are "at the forefront" of this COVID battle, and I know how painful this must be. I still have the baseball cap I picked up in Concord last time. John
  8. David, I would suggest you repost this on the Pre-War forum. This car should draw considerable interest there. You might indicate where you lived (in general), or where the car is located (in general). I have only slightly newer models, so not much help. Good luck with the car. I do know you will want to see if the gas tank is leaking, I assume empty be evaporation by this time and try to turn the belt by hand and see if there is a chance the engine is free. You might want to be sure that no animals (mice, mostly) have built nests in the air intake. Plan to remove the oil to see what comes out, before trying to start. You will sure need a new battery. Good luck, It is nice to see a young person getting into the hobby, and I am sure many on the Pre-War section will be of much more help tan I. John
  9. Pardon me, but I have to ask, which one to you consider a "meet" and which one is the "reunion". I believe a lot of members would consider a Buick National Meet as also a reunion. John
  10. Lamar, I peruse or follow all the later on your list, but not looking for anything. I feel those I follow are pretty straight forward, but do not much follow the Buy-Sell aspects. John
  11. For me, the survey was not too clear. I had been considering attending both with a relaxing drive between Concord and Strongsville, but there was no question mentioning attending both. For me, I have not yet made a Registration, but have hotel reservations. As some of you know, I have been working toward a National Meet in Gettysburg, PA in 2024, so a delay in 2021, may set some shifting in events for 2022 and 2023, OR NOT, should 2021 just be cancelled. Big question, just how far can the push-forward be continued. Personally, at age 84, I will be fully vaccinated by mid-February. But the big thing in 2021 may well be a well restricted event, making it not much FUN. As plans are for mid-west and west coast the next two years, I am hoping we can still have 2024 in Gettysburg. We will make sure that will be a classy event on the east coast, making up (as best possible) for the losses of the events in Concord and Strongsville. Meantime, keep wearing your masks, get your shots, or shots, and stay safe. John Scheib
  12. Chuck, Sorry I came to this a bit late. If the newsletter is not on their web site, and you see this, I would like a newsletter forwarded. Thanks, John at j.scheib@comcast.net
  13. I stand corrected. I wondered because I knew you drove to WI. John
  14. The whole float system takes a beating on a trailer ride when the bowl is dry and the float and pin have nothing to dampen the ride. Brian, As they say, Buicks were meant for driving, as you know. John
  15. I am guessing, that you have a two barrel carb as standard for the year 1932. But some engines had a single barrel as in 1931, I am told. The engine number should be able to tell you the year built of your spare engine. We should be able to tell you the year, if you have the number. John
  16. I know these are very hard to find, but we will ask anyway, on the odd chance someone will have a set. The car we have has the bumper. but with incorrect guards Maybe we will get lucky. Let me know if you have some laying around, or if you know someone who might be a source. Thank you. John
  17. Not sure if a '32 will interchange, but Pete Phillips might have one if they do interchange. John
  18. And don't forget the fireworks show! I believe after the concert. John
  19. Steve, An excellent substitute, as been to Riviera Meet there and proposing a future BCA Meet there. , I am afraid my wife is quite concerned about my health, so we will be withdrawing. This is not because of the venue change, but our decision not to travel. I applaud your, and others. outstanding efforts to make this happen and to make it a safe event. I just wish I was about 10 years younger. Again, I appreciate your efforts going above and beyond what was in " your job description". Thank you so much. John Scheib
  20. Bill, I concur with others. Thanks for your service to the club. Hoping for a full recovery. John
  21. I think it is the Ellsworth Street Building, location on the west side of the property. Other buildings and entrances are on other sides of the property. John
  22. I would a bit careful in prompting a larger gathering, and a word of caution to others anywhere in states that are not yet "fully opening", as larger crowds will draw "eyes" that may want to turn you in for too large a gathering. John
