  1. Took the wagon out today to run some old oil and some scrap steel to the recycling center. Got quite a few positive comments while unloading! Likely the last time out for the year for the wagon. I’ll have to total up my miles for the year to see how I did for the challenge!
  2. Attempted gas theft? Happened a lot out here when gas prices first went out of control. They would cut the fuel line right there and fill a jerry can. It caused a lot of grief at used car lots to the point that most would only keep minimal fuel in the tanks.

    Longest Buick Coupe Ever manufactured

    I was under the impression the 1975 Electra was the longest coupe at 233.4 inches. Shorter wheel base at 127 inches but if the metric is overall length the 75 wins. 2 dr coupe and 4 dr were same length.

    1966 conv.---glass or plastic rear window?

    My 67 is a glass window, and most I’ve seen are glass. Hopefully someone with direct 66 knowledge chimes in.

    Winter Buicks

    No pictures that I can recollect but I was there and can at least attest to the Estate Wagon part... I didn’t see snow though ?

    Use Of Premium Fuel

    We are blessed up here on the west coast (north of the border), every Chevron carries Ethanol free 94 octane fuel marketed as “supreme plus”. It’s even on its own hose. A little more pricey, about $1 gallon more, but given the Buick’s don’t get used much, I don’t mind the extra few bucks a tank.

    Autumn Buicks

    Leaves are just about all gone now around here, so took advantage of a nice day to change the oil and clean up the wagon before putting it away for the winter. Also had a ”Thriller”ing evening with Derek (Thriller) and his family who were in town for the weekend!

    Autumn Buicks

    I do think it had the 3300 John, although it’s been awhile. My sister is not easy on vehicles and it survived her. She eventually traded it for an SUV. In fact that became a running joke... at the same time I had a 97 Chevy lumina with the 3100 that I meticulously maintained. I had all kinds of problems with that car (worst I ever owned) while my sister who did nothing, no maintenance, had no issues with the Buick. I joked the secret to keeping that vintage of GM vehicles running was to never maintain them.

    Very nice John! I hope you enjoy it as much as your old Estate Wagon. We had a 93 Century sedan that eventually made it's way to my sister. That thing was indestructible as she only changed the oil when the light came on!

    That sounds great Derek, I’ll send you a PM with my contact details and we can touch base when you’re back from Whistler.

    We’ve had fantastic Autumn weather around here for the past 2 weeks, but I’ve been too busy with work and other commitments to take advantage with the cars. Today I was able to get the convertible out before all the leaves are gone and the rain returns.
