  1. I agree with Y-jobfan. Lets not say goodbye, see ya later!
  2. Just to keep up on the numbers, the last time I talked to John Young he only had 1 unregistered convertible.
  3. I think anything that adds to a cars uniqueness makes it more collectible. And, documenting the history is crucial for car collectors.
  4. look for rejuvenation oil and Prestine cleaner. It's a bit pricey but it really really works. A warning from the company: strongly advise against saddle soap, as it has been known to remove the dye from the leather. Avoid products that contain petroleum or mineral oils, as they cause leather fibers to rot prematurely. If your dye is worn away, call about our simple to use Leatherique Leather Dyes. Our cleaner and conditioner have a capillary action. The proteins, cleaners, and conditioners find their way deep into the pores of the leather and force out the dirt, perspiration, air pollution, unnecessary oils, and other toxins that destroy the fibers of the leather, destroying its strength and flexibility, and causing it to deteriorate. For tough, heavier stains, we do make leather cleaner to remove the stain from the surface of the leather. The remainder of the stain will need to be β€œfloated” out of the leather with Rejuvenator Oil. Badly stained surfaces probably need to be re-dyed. Call, email, or fax your specific Leather care questions to us anytime. October 24, 2008
  5. Oh, before anyone mentions it, the original floor mats are stored and only displayed at car shows.
  6. Thanks Ronnie! I am proud of the fact the drivers seat looks so good. In most cars, like Reattas and Corvettes, that's always the spot that first shows the age if the car. I am a fanatic about treating the leather on a regular basis.
  7. A welcome artic blast hit Arizona today, it was only 103 degrees. So, get out the sweaters and take the Reatta for a well deserved trip. Its a real joy to drive, I can't wait till the fall. The AC blew cold too, a nice bonus inspite of the cold weather πŸ˜†. I applied leatherique to the seats two weeks ago and removed it today. The seats are as soft and supple as when new.
  8. There certainly is a consensus that the Reatta Owners Journal is a valuable tool for Reatta owners. It is good for both owners and the future of our rare cars to have so much information gathered in one convenient location. It may be true that the best things in life are free, but running a website is not one of them. It costs money. I just kicked in. To make it easy, here is a link to the donation page. I hope everyone can contribute a few bucks to show our appreciation πŸπŸπŸ™‚
  9. I use it and appreciate it being there. If the software upgrade requires a financial investment please put pen to paper and let us know how much Is needed. Then we post a fundraising thread with a link to your donation page. We can all count together to see how long it takes to get there. Not long I suspect. 😁
  10. It was most likely my car but it was a 1991 with white wheels and a red interior. I loved that car! I like the white seats and other white touches in the ss60. I find the interior spectacular and truely unique.
  11. Since the 1990 SS60's were such a low production car you do not see many for sale. It seems to me as a person that checks every now and then, the ones for sale are generally in excess of 80,000 miles. I wonder how many of these cars ended up as collector cars with low miles? Does anyone have a clue how many out out there in cream puff condition. I my humble opinion that was the most striking Reatta ever built. I was looking for one when I bought my 1991 Convert with 17000 miles but the only one available was the one in San Diego which is still for sale. Thoughts? Like a C2 Corvette, I would really like to own a Select 60, that are just beautiful cars. 🏁
  12. The one he sold was impeccable for sure. I went thru the red molding vs black molding issue at the time and even posted on this site about peoples preferences. Both are outstanding and really make a difference appearance in the car. Johns had red moldings and of course, I ended up with black.
  13. I was negotiating with John Young for 416. We still talk but did not come to terms and I let it go. The car was sold thereafter, funny story. I guy approached me at a car show and wanted to buy mu 422. I would not sell it. I told him about 416 and he ended up purchasing the car. Small world.
  14. I am really looking forward to hanging out with the twins this fall. I think with all three in a row at a car show it will be shock and awe Buick Reatta style!
