  1. The Reynolds/Alberta museum is in Wetaskiwin which is about 3/4 hour south of Edmonton. I was living in Wetaskiwin when the Museum was being built and the cars were being cleaned up for storage. Stan Reynolds lent me the tail light lens for my 25-45 so I could have the correct tail light when I took the car to Vancouver Expo 86. I am still looking for an original one as the one I use is a plastic repo, look OK but still not original. Here is what a Mclaughlin Buick 25-45 tail light looks like. Leon
  2. Sometimes it just needs a ride!
  3. Hugh, Nice to have so many friends that are willing to help, sure makes for a nice day. You are doing an excellent job on the restoration, congratulations. Leon
  4. The 25-25 sold about 30 yrs ago, the 64 Electra 225 sold about 43 years ago and the 55 Roadmaster sold about 40 years ago. leon
  5. HI Derek, on the before pic you can see the bracket that holds the column to the dash. You have to loosen the clamping bolt (which you can't see in the picture) and then the whole column with the wheel can move up and down about 3 inches in a slotted hole in the bracket. Hope that makes sense. Leon
  6. 1925-45 Mclaughlin Buick with the special recessed walnut dash and adjustable steering column . Before and after pics. Leon
  7. Same car, different girl. This is after all about the girls is it not??? Leon
  8. Gary, like many others on this site I have been silently watching this thread and have been throughly impressed by the dedication to having this restoration done in such short order and so well documented. Well done. Would love to see it in person. Leon
  9. A couple pics of the 25 taking part in parades dragging floats along.
  10. Had the 25 at a "Great Gatsby" themed wine and food pairing event.
  11. This was Christmas time 1985 when we were out wassailing the neighbourhood!! Leon
  12. The McLaughlin Buicks both 1924 and 1925 master series had brake lights housed in one tail light. The lens were in two parts. I have been looking for years for original glass lens for mine without any luck. I have reproduction plastic ones in for now. It also has a clear lens at the bottom for license plate light! Leon
  13. My 25-45 McLaughlin Buick has adjustable front seat as well a adjustable steering column. Leon
  14. Thanks Hugh for reposting the rim bolt charts, Leon
  15. Darnnit! I just pulled up this thread to look at the wheel bolt chart that somebody had posted to copy it off to my buick folder. Can't remember who it was, but it would be nice if you could post it again, thanks. Leon
