  1. They are still writing the article. I just found Jeff from Hemmings a local 89 Reatta coupe that will be in the article too. I would estimate it will appear in 4 to 6 months. My 1970 pace car will be featured in Hemmings Classic car in the April Issue, out this March for sale.
  2. I am really looking forward to reading that article and see the photos of your beautiful car. The best way to increase interest in these special cars is through ventures like this. Increased exposure means higher resale prices eventually.
  3. I think I found some one from this forum, Buickcity, to volunteer for the Hemmings Classic car photo shoot. I think it's very exciting that the Reatta with be featured in a national magazine.
  4. He guys!! If anyone has a 88/89 Reatta we need your car. As Anthony mentioned Hemmings is going to do a Buyer's guide on our favorite car and wants to also shoot photos of the early years. Email brengirl@aol.com if you can help or knows someone nearby.
  5. Those are very interesting models πŸ‘
  6. I had the teves system on my 1991 Jaguar, owner it for years and had no problems at all. Nice story, thanks for sharing. πŸ‘
  7. Buick two seater available at Volo. https://www.volocars.com/vehicles/15021/1938-buick-special-series-40-business-coupe
  8. Very good read, thanks for posting. I bet a bit nervous when the first sentence of an article is not true but the rest of the piece made up for it. FYI - the first sentence : "Buick’s first and only two-seater was conceived more than a decade before its birth.
  9. I saw all the photos and if it was not a select 60 it was a very accurate clone. I will contact the prospective buyer and get the VIN. If there is a snag in the deal he said he would let me know so I could make an offer.
  10. A thread on the Facebook mentioned a guy was thinking about buying a 1990 select 60 and needed an inspection. It was at a dealer and he bought it for $3500. 120,000 miles with two brake related idiot lights on. Seems like it was in decent condition and ran good. All I can say is I wish I found it first πŸ₯‚πŸ˜β€οΈ

    Yes, you have to pull the computer codes and track down issues from there. Go to Reatta owners journal for help on how to.
  12. Wow, looks like a nice car You did well πŸ˜³πŸ‘
  13. Thanks Buicknutty. I really think if Buick would have built a select 60 in the 1960's it would have looked very similar to this car. I have thought the 1990 select 60 is one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen. Oh, this one is a stick, Buick would have probably given it an automatic transmission. πŸ€”
  14. Never heard of it. If the claims are true it would be a car buffs best friend. I always wonder why some of these too good to be true products never make it to retail stores. πŸ€”
  15. I am going to see how it stops as I have not received the car yet. Should arrive next week. It's an easy enough upgrade to go with disk brakes but then your going away from originality. Tough choice. I will probably add side pipes at some point to. There is a company, made in the USA, that makes πŸ’― percent perfect reproduction pipes.
  16. Most people here know I have had a desire to own a 1990 select 60. Well, not exactly a select 60 but check it out, I just purchased this car. For you Corvette fans it's a 1964, 327/300 HP #s matching car with a Muncie 4 speed transmission, AM/FM radio, both hard top and soft top in white, trim tag 936/491DE identifies it as correct white car with two tone white/red interior and knock off wheels. The word of the day is thrilled!!πŸ₯‚πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ˜Ž
  17. Lol, a teenager would never understand this cartoon. Unfortunately, I do πŸ€”
  18. Living in Arizona you see lots of what you would consider collectable cars still in daily use as drivers. The guy at our Auto parts store drives a 1970 Mustang in original condition. If he were to try to sell it he would get peanuts for it. However, if it were a 20,000 mile pristine survivor or had a restoration done, it would get good money. Same with the Reatta.
  19. They really got it right in 1991. It's too bad they did not complete the year production schedule. There would be a lot more convertibles on the road today.
  20. So good to see you out there enjoying your Reatta with other owners. Very nice photos. My first Reatta was burgundy coupe, that color looks fantastic with the tan top.
  21. Facebook just reminded me of this post from five years ago today. My former 1991 convertible with very special white wheels. The gentleman that bought it from me still owns the car and loves it as I did. Aren't Reatta Automobiles sexy?
  22. I did say the car went to a guy as a toy. Isn't that true for 95 percent of classic cars sold? Very few in the grand scheme of car sales are truly collectors, buy and hold 20 years. Most people buy em, drive em, show em then sell em. From seeing Mecum, Barrett Jackson....rich guys collecting toys to show thier friends. High mile rough drivers like old Camaros, mustangs go pretty cheap here in Arizona. With our weather and no snow, you still see old drivers out here that don't fetch much money.
