    Reatta History

    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

    Reatta History

    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.

    Last Saturday Night

    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.

    More Car-Toons

    That is just too funny!! I may have to steal that idea for Thunder & Lightning.

    Nice vert. Why didn’t it sell?

    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.

    Last Saturday Night

    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.

    Reatta Forum Moderator

    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.

    Hello you sexy thing!

    I really love the select 60's particularly the red/white interior. As some may recall I was searching for a low mile one before I bought my current car. That would be the only other car I would trade mine for, that's him much i like them. Beautiful, stunning!!

    Favorite Pictures of My Buick Reatta

    Sometimes you just get lucky and take a photo that really nails it. I took this last night at a local Scottsdale show and shine.
  11. Well, it was 101 at 6 tonight but tomorrow we are having our first day in the low 90's. Summer is over here in Phoenix for now so off comes the car cover. First time I had the top down since June. Oh my it felt good to take the Reatta out tonight.

    Car covers

    Hello everyone. I am thinking about buying an older low mile car to have fun in. Trying to keep the miles on the Reatta to a minimum. I live in Phoenix, 330 days of sun and 365 days of dust. If I parked my new driver outside with a quality car cover would it keep it nice or is it a fool's errand? I would hate to buy a decent car and watch it turn to crap in a few years. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Gasoline smell when parked

    Are you sure your car is not a jaguar? They always smell like gas, particularly in the trunk area. ?

    Off-road Reatta!?!?!

    I love this ad. Hard to find people with a good sense of humor these days ?

    Service engine soon light but no code stored

    Just to complete this thread, the car needed a new ECM. Make a sense, the code did not get stored because the storage device was fubar.
