  1. This is not a historic Buick Dealership, but I took this off my then new 1977 Buick Century. At the time, I was living in Melbourne Florida. I wanted a white with blue interior Century. Lane Pontiac, Buick did a dealer trade, and what came in was, Blue with White interior. Before I left the dealership, I pulled off the emblem. That's all I have left of my 77 Century.
  2. 211 are dealer promos. 391 That I built myself. With several in process. And, plenty still in boxes. I’ve been building and collecting model cars, since my Father gave me my first dealer promo in 1955. Yes, I do still have it. Many of the cereal box cars, I got out of the cereal boxes myself. In one way I’m lucky, my 23 year old granddaughter, wants all the models, and my 65 Corvette. She has a strong interest in cars, both big and small.
  3. I've been building model cars for as long as I can remember. I presently have over 600, 1/25 scale model cars on display.
  4. I never said my Calais was a pace car. With 155,000 miles on the iron duke, it's not a piece of crap.
  5. Thank you for posting the great picture of the 1985 Indy Oldsmobile Calais. I have owned a 1985 Oldsmobile Calais, that I bought new, June 1985.
  6. I have had one claim with JC Taylor. I could not ask for better service.
  7. Try a restoration shop. I've installed 50's windshields, it's not that difficult. The hardest part is removing and reinstalling the trim.
  8. Last week, I bought a set of Toyo Extensa A/S white wall tires for my 65 Corvette. Discount had two brands of white wall tires, in the size I needed.
  9. I have an unopened gallon of PPG DDL9300 Black Lacquer, that I would be willing to sell.

  11. My first date, in my own car was in July, 1966. I had graduated high school in June. My father cosigned for a car loan for a 1963 Chevrolet Impala convertible. It was Polomar Red, with black interior and top. On the way home from the dealership, a girl I went to school with was standing on the curb in front of her house. I stopped to show off my 'new' car. She was waiting for her 1959 Ford that she just bought, to be delivered. She like my car, and out of the blue, I asked her to a movie that night. We dated for about a year, then went our separate ways. We stayed in t
  12. I had been a subscriber of Old Cars Weekly, for well over 30 years. This past December, I dropped my subscription. Less content, and a higher subscription price was the reason.
  13. Back in the early 1980's, I owned a 1958 Edsel Ranger with a column shift, three speed manual transmission.
  14. This picture was taken with my 2 year old daughter, in January 1979, the day I bought home my new 1979 Turbo Mustang.

  16. I worked for a Dodge dealer in 1966 thru 1968. I didn't see many Monaco station wagons even then. Great find, do enjoy.
  17. Since I sold my 1969 Plymouth, I have no need for the; 1969 Texas Inspection Sticker. It still has the protective film on the face side. $20.00 shipped.
  18. My first Edsel was a 1958 Pacer 2 dr ht. It was color code GEE, Horizon Blue and Snow White, with red and white interior. When it was restored, it went back as factory original even as the restorer wanted me to change the colors. I felt as going back as per factory delivered, it did justice to the car.
  19. Enjoyed the pictures, thank you for posting them.
