    electrical thoughts

    What accessories are you attempting to power? In most cases, simply putting an inexpensive "jump box" in the car and plugging the accessories into the jump box would be the easiest way to do that. Periodically, you can take the jump box and charge it when the car is in the garage.

    We all are entitled to our own opinion but I have a very different take on this portion of your post. When a majority of the voting members of the club elect an officer, and only 100 people present at a meeting join together after having been given some information that is false or misleading try to throw that member out of the club, the members of the board who voted to expel that member would be the ones whose actions would concern me. I hope that the financial secrecy will soon be a thing of the past. I hope that good candidates will run for the board and that the voting members elect candidates who will continue in the improvement and additional transparency in operation of the club. There are places for use of committees, but ultimately, the Board of Directors has to be responsible for the operation of the club.
  4. Rob, Welcome to the AACA Discussion Forum. I have moved your post to the Buick Reatta Forum where I am sure you will find someone who can answer your question.

    1940 Buick Super Restoration

    I would suggest you find a 1940 DuPont Buick Paint Chip brochure. I don't have experience with 1940 but both the 1937 and 1938 Paint Chip brochure has the information regarding interior and trim paint colors as well as the exterior paint colors.

    Help - '90 Eldorado Teves ABS troubles

    Welcome to the AACA Discussion Forum. I am not an expert on that system but unless I am mistaken, this is the same brake system used on the Buick Reatta. If you scroll down to the Buick Section of the Forum and do some searching in the Reatta Forum, or else post a question there, I think you will find some folks who can give you plenty of help on that system.

    Welcome to the AACA Discussion Forum. I have moved your post from the Forum Software Questions Forum to the Dodge and Dodge Brothers Forum. Hopefully someone in this forum can better assist you with your questions about your car.

    Are you a BCA member?

    I don't know quite how to answer your poll. Your poll does not quite capture my situation. I am a BCA Member, but it is basically just a magazine subscription and allows me to be a member of a BCA Division that I enjoy.

    Did the scammer contact you through the Forum PM system? If so, please give me his forum user name so I can ban the scammer. If you posted your phone number or email address in your ad, anybody with internet access can see it and you are opening yourself up to any scammer in the world. I strongly urge you to remove your phone number or email address from any ads that you have posted on this site or any other internet discussion forum.

    1957 Buick Roadmaster 2 door

    For those members who were concerned and reported Chris' post as a potential scammer, I can say that I have been able to confirm that he is in fact in a guy who I could track down at a business landline phone in Wisconsin. He has apparently collected a large collection of parts over the years and is now interested in selling. After a phone conversation, I am convinced that he is not an overseas scammer, despite his initial post being rather vague and appearing somewhat suspect. Dee's, Welcome to the AACA Discussion Forum. Hopefully you will be able to find buyers here for the parts that you wish to sell. I would also suggest you scroll down to the Buick section of the Forum and post in the Buick Specific buy/sell forum. You will find a few Buick guys who tend to hang out there and seldom read anything in the AACA section of the Forum.
  11. You have asked about a potential business venture in a good place to ask car related questions, but not somewhere that I would go for business advice. The folks on this forum are from all over the US and the rest of the world. Over time I have learned that there are an amazing amount of regional differences in the places that we all come from. I live in a coastal city which is known for retirement, vacations, movie making, boating as well as other things. We have an active local antique car culture here. My area sounds like exactly the right place for what you seem to be thinking of, yet I think you would lose your investment if you attempted to start any such business here. There are too many places where car guys hang out here now and all of them are free. How do you think you are going to get car guys to come and pay for something that they can already do for free in a place that they are used to doing it for at for free? About the only business that I think you might be able to find car guys willing to pay for service would be either an auto detailing shop, car wash, or mechanic shop that you market as catering to old cars. If you were to do that in my town, you would be competing against multiple established businesses. I run an engraving business. A portion of my businesss is name tags, plaques, and trophies for car clubs. My business does have that small tie in, but it is certainly not my main business. I run a business and I have a hobby. It is rare to be able to successfully combine a business and a hobby and be successful in the business.

    cadillac transmission repair

    Last year the answer would have been yes. Unfortunately, his guy who was the Slim Jim HydraMatic expert was killed in a car crash last year. He has not been able to find anybody else with that kind of experience to replace him.

    I agree with Cindy. I have heard a few things about recent board activity from some individual conversations with various board members but I can't seem to find anything about recent board activity in the January Bugle. I was told that some board minutes were recently approved but they still don't seem to be on the BCA website.
