  1. With my car still sitting in the garage with her hood up two of my friends came over Sunday for a visit. I should have spent the time working on the Special but it was good to see them (distantly of course).
  2. I know exactly what you are feeling Matt regarding our hobby / driver cars. I have put off getting at my car even with all what I have in stock thinking I will need to put her back together as like what your are experiencing, I'm sure one thing will lead to another and my small business is way off it's mark... Concentrating on bringing in money another way and that is slow so with free storage and no even local car gatherings... leaving those nuts and bolts and tools right where I left them till things are in better shape. God I hate the expression "We are all in this together" from the Powers That Be but here on the Forums dare I say it kinda does apply? Hang in Matt, that's all I'm going to do. (What real choice do we have?)
  4. Brian, I like hearing that your Dad is in there like a dirty shirt. LOL Enjoy these days. There will come a time...
  5. Challenging year is right John... However, to your statement above, since our P M has started to open a few things up some the traffic volume in town is more like it was back in February. Maybe it is lighter out in the County but with Chryslers going back into production this week will bet the commuters are hitting the bricks anxious for that full pay cheque again. (can't blame them for that) As to the driving habit's I've experienced... I missed the memo stating that the Rules of the Road during this pandemic have been rescinded like stopping fully at stop signs or red lights, totally ignoring the speed limits, cutting across three lanes (at high speed last minute) and other infractions! Panic stops are suggesting I need to do a brake inspection! I'm sure I sound like Wendy Whiner here but the gas prices are going up! Four weeks ago I paid 63 cents per litre for regular and finally had to fill up again this week. It was 93.9 per litre yesterday! The 75 bucks it cost me only put just over half a tank in my F-150 where it only cost me 68 dollars to get a full tank last time! And the price of a barrel is at what? Collusion and gouging isn't dead yet!~ Now, if I can just get back to the Special...
  6. Seems the older I get I find myself leaning to things I did when I was young too. Might be that simpler comfortable time thing? Guess that's why I kept my High School car all these years...
  7. Well, who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks!
  8. Yes they are for the '58 Limited only models. Presume by the condition the plastic insets are gone?
  9. I'm curious as to the process you used with steel wool and mag polish. What grade of steel wool did you use? Was this done only by hand motion or with a polisher? I have wiper scuffing and wondered if this might reduce or clear it up. Thanks.
  10. Been there with that! LOL
  11. I'm really squinting my eyes but can't quite see it....
  12. While not my 1930 Buick Bus it is me (on the very right) & my dad with the cap on the right helping hold up the sign. The year was 1969 and the Club was going on a day trip along the north shore of Lake Erie. That old straight 8 got a work out with all the wicker seat filled. The owner eventually sold the bus to an actual bus company 40 miles east and they restored it but were able to save those wicker seats (which were very comfortable).
  13. Just sent them an email inquiring about my 1958 Limited. Glad to hear they can he helpful with the yardage required. Waiting to see what the cost is going to be then convert Canadian to US... Should be interesting.
  14. I have a complete rear axle to the drum,s sitting by itself but no way to measure the weight without a proper scale. Any suggestions to help you out?
  15. Here is the wiring diagram from the 1958 Buick Chassis Service Manual.
