  1. Just an update on my 1991 Vert. I have had trouble free service and the car is running great. I needed to add some freon this spring but it is holding a charge. Not sure how that happens. Summer in Arizona means a car cover and monthly warm-up around the neighborhood. I am looking forward to the fall!

    AC Troubles

    I just pulled the relay, did not jump it. That may explain why it did not work. Bottom line, we got the job done.

    AC Troubles

    Just a follow up. I pulled the ac relay but the codes needed to be cleared to trick the computer into thinking everything was ok. I charged her up and the ac works at the moment. Time will tell if its leaking. Thanks for the suggestion Barney.

    AC Troubles

    Just on time, the weather warms up and the AC goes out. My 1991 Reatta service AC light came on. I thought I must have a leak so I went to charge it. Checked the charge and it seems to still have a charge but the compressor is not engaged. The fuse was not blown. I did the old disconnect the battery trick to kick start the compressor but when I restarted, it did not engage. Prior to taking it to a mechanic (which I hate to do) are there any tips or tricks to get this thing running again. Summer in Arizona, help!

    Welcome to the group! Please post some photo's of the new car when you get a chance.
  6. Surprisingly, I really like the black top. I agree, with black moldings even better 😁
  7. Great result today as the Reatta took first in class. Detailed to the max and showed like a dream. I met Terry Kenney today as well. He was a Reatta designer, engineer and help put together the Craft Centre. It was great talking to him and he added many insights that I did not know. He would be a great guest as a national meet or Reatta get together.
  8. He used to frequent this site, not sure if he does anymore. This book should be owned by any Reatta Enthusiast: Gary D. Smith The receiver of this payment is Verified 231-631-1075
  9. Another good history is a book, "The Buick Reatta The Complete History." It was written by Duncan Smith. There were very hard to find but I have a source that has them. I had the book, sold it to Kingsley awhile back and recently purchased it again. Good stuff. If anyone wants contact info, let me know.
  10. I generally display three things with the car at shows. 1) the window sticker (laminated) 2) Statement of mileage (17000) and owners info and 3) a brief overview of what a Reatta is (thanks Ronnie, I plagiarized yours and added a bit). I agree with Barney, it's good for the auto collecting guy and girl to become familiar with such a unique and desirable car. Just like dashmaster attested to, you take'em out and people appreciate and admire them, even daily drivers.
  11. That is just too funny!! I may have to steal that idea for Thunder & Lightning.
  12. The black car looked good for the $15000 asking price was too high. Should have left it off and set the reserve at the number he wanted. From what I have seen, if your asking $15000 you best have under 40000 or under on the odometer. You have to anticipate repairs on a 80,000 mile car and for that money, well....good luck.
  13. Here are two photo's from a show and shine last weekend at the Scottsdale Pavilions in Arizona. We always talk about when our cars are going to get the respect they deserve. In my opinion, that day has arrived. When I pulled in and headed for parking I heard numerous comments like "wow, it's a Reatta," and have not seen one of those for some time, cool car." after I parked it I had more people checking it out than the Mopar, GM and Ford rides. People were really interested in this rarely seen car. Even if your car is a high miles and not perfect, if you check out a local show and shine I bet you will be surprised at the love your Reatta gets.
  14. Looks like a nice car. I have always wanted at select 60, just love the white with white red interior.
  15. I have been lurking and rather inactive here for some time. I would hate to see Ronnie step down and i have always really loved this forum. I was, and still am, the moderator of the Hurst/Olds forum, a very thankless job. Please, carry on and keep the Reatta torch lit and held high. This forum is responsible for many Reatta's that would have been abandoned- that would be a shame.
