  1. Obvious thing to check but is the radio turned off? Don't ask me how I know this.
  2. Very sad news. I looked forward to his informative Riviera posts. RIP and condolences to his family.
  3. Kevin; Nice collection. Good to see you have included a few examples of the glassware our Glass City Chapter produced and sold in the late 70s and 80s.
  4. Check with Jim Hughes of Jim's Dynaflow Service in Perrysburg,Ohio. 419-874-2393. He will know.
  5. Sad news, Pete. Thanks for letting us know. He will be missed.
  6. Congratulations on your acquisition of this great car. Thanks for posting the pictures. Your excitement is very obvious.
  7. Unforgettable meet. Denny Manner and the Buicktown Chapter knocked this one out of the park!!
  8. 1940 Service Bulletins show the factory made a small shroud available and other procedures to do to improve the cooling on all 1939s. Miss Dave and his Buick knowledge.
  9. Hope you will fix the damage and sell as a nice driver. You have the knowledge and resources to do this.
  10. Yes, flat copper washer. This is open to the water jacket.
  11. I was not clear if you did or did not have a gas tank. Thanks.
  12. This car was designed around the same time as the Cadillac Eldorado Brougham which used narrow stripe whitewalls as well. Maybe a joint effort.
  13. As much as I would like to see the meet postponed to late Aug or Sept as proposed, I feel we will see a second,but not as severe, Covid 19 uptick in June/July as people begin to move about again. The healthcare system will be in a better position to handle this outbreak; however, it would seem to make sense to cancel for this year. I hope wheels can be set in motion to have Northeast Ohio Chapter have the opportunity to host in 2023 or 2024 as has been suggested. I also hope the BCA will be able to minimize any losses and be aggressive in insisting those losses be shared by the hotels etc. I agree with Willie (Old Tank) that this is why the club has these supposedly "Excessive" reserves to be able to respond to extraordinary events. I speak both personally and as Director of the Glass City Chapter.
  14. What numbers are listed on the body tag on the cowl? Model 59=Super. Model 79=Roadmaster. Should solve what engine you have.
  15. Nice to see your engine still has the crankcase vent pipe to the carburetor and original oil filter intact. These were modified or removed per 1942 Service Bulletins when oil filter material was not available and the vent system caused coking of the jets in the carb.
  16. Amen to all the comments made.
  17. Eagerly following your progress, Adam. Talked with you at South Bend when Flight Pitches were a concern. Hope you can get to Strongsville.
  18. Very sorry to learn of this. Tons of admiration and respect for Joe. I was very disappointed when he left the BCA; but always looked forward to his posts and opinions. Thanks for posting this sad news Roberta.
  19. Stuart: Last year I referred one our chapter members to your 2010 post on the subject of his 1935 Model 46 overheating. Owned the car since 1983 but was not aware of the baffle inside. Using your pictures as reference, he used a brass door kickplate available at many home centers or hardware stores. He cut, fit, and installed it. So far this seems to have cured the problem, although he was not able during this last year to really give the car a good long drive. I met you at BCA Danvers Meet in 2011. Good to see you're continuing to post.
