  1. I had a beige '63 Skylark station wagon as my first car.
  2. I believe this vendor has been selling headlights for over 20 years.
  3. The only option IMO is to just replace the glass with safety glass. I just replaced the glass in the windshields for a couple of my vehicles and I think it cost less than $200.00. My guess is that would be less than the price of a deductible at an emergency department, not to mention the cost of an accident to your body. Just my 2 cents worth.
  4. Bought a tire changer for changing the split rim tires on my old cars.
  5. JPS, are the rocker arms moving when cranking the car?
  6. Has any work been done on the engine? The camshaft to crankshaft orientation might be off. The next thing is one of the timing gears might be damaged/ stripped. Take the cover off the engine and see if the rocker arms are moving when cranking the engine over. If they are not moving you now know the problem. Bad timing gears. Keep us posted on your progress.
  7. Are you going to Hershey with them?
  8. Ben, Call me next week and let me know when you can come over to my shop in Grand Blanc and we can go for a ride in my '13. Your car should be easily go 35-40 miles per hour without any issues. If you are going to Hershey, we can meet up. We can also look at a chassis like on your car that has most of the parts there. If you want to come towards my house, we can look at my '18 Buick truck that has the same chassis as your car. I think you have my phone number, but if not let me know by pm and I will send it to you. I will be happy to help answer any questions you might have to make your car a pleasure to drive.
  9. Not true unless you are over driving your car for the conditions. You should not be squealing the tires if you are driving with caution. Driving an old car like yours and mine, you learn to drive a lot further out than the next 20 feet like so many other persons do in a modern call.
  10. Out camping and giving rides at the campground for family & friends this weekend. Also drove about a 70 mile round trip from our shop to the campground and back.
  11. I will be there in RNG 8&9 with Joe Tonietto and Marck Barker. If any one needs sheet metal for a 1917 or 1918 model D-35 or E-35 four cylinder Buick car, I will be bringing a bunch for a great price.
