  1. I'm guessing that these guys watch the auctions and say "That's just like my car." But they can't see any details so they try to get the same price. Lost their mind and have no idea where to start looking for it.

    Find the Buick

    I gave it a shot but nothing. I'm finding out that pictures that come out of publications can be identified most of the time. Pictures taken by individuals don't come up. The black and white picture that I tried to identify came up with the subtitle of "Wildebeests." Go figure.
  3. Leo's dreaded nemesis of Greased Lightning from the movie Grease
  4. Those are just stock three bar Mustang wheel covers. Lest we not forget the original from Ben Hur's chariot race
  5. From your Wictionary link: Usage notes[edit] This spelling is used in Jamaica, but is antiquated in other places where English is spoken. Was this picture taken Jamaica? 😏 I just thought it was strange; maybe the sign maker failed his class in Hooked on Phonics.

    57 caballero project brakes

    Swap tires side to side. Had a separated belt in a tire that caused something similar. If nothing changes, swap drums side to side. How are the bushings on your brake reaction rods?
  7. Is 'Gasolene' different than gasoline?
  8. Here's one for all of you '63 and earlier guys. Jack Cooley: Dyna-flow
  9. I know that this song has been mentioned previously but there's a back story that goes with it for me. I had a friend in high school who had a 63 Impala SS. With Pipeline on the radio, he would set the background guitar beat of the song to the white stripes on the highway between his house and the high school. In central Kansas, the white lines would pass to the beat of the music at 110 mph. Dumb A$$ Kids that we were.
  10. Here's a picture that I found when I googled "1964 Riviera interior code 601" http://automotivemileposts.com/riviera/riviera1964interiortrim.html
  11. Contact TA Performance for all sorts of go fast goodies for the Buick Big Block http://www.taperformance.com/categories.asp
  12. Like I had on my '57 Austin Healey 100-6. Had to carry the big dead blow hammer in the trunk. True knock offs.
  13. If you don't know which blue is correct, what makes you think that anyone else looking into the car is going to know which blue is correct. The ROA does peer judging and I'm pretty sure that my wife or anyone else's wife who has a ballot in hand doesn't know which is correct. The ONLY person who knows if what you have in your car would be the original owner of another 64 whose car has never been exposed to light; and he'd have to park right next to you in order for anyone to ccmpare. I'm not a member of the BCA but I highly doubt if the judges have samples of original carpet that they carry around just looking for a car that' doesn't have the correct shade of blue. They'll accept a base coat/clear coat paint job that's close rather than the original lacquer. The suggestions to pick that one that looks best are probably the best advice you can get. Don't pet the sweaty stuff and don''t sweat the petty stuff.
  14. Ask them to send you a sample of each. Compare to what you have that's not been subjected to the sun.
