  10. I am having a problem with the connection of the gas pedal to starter, The car starts fine by pressing down on gas pedal. ( i am assuming that is the correct way to start i am a new car owner) the key is in the center position. then after starting, when trying to rev engine by just stepping on gas pedal the starter engages again ,even with the car already running. my ignition key is still in the center position. am i doing something wrong or is there some problem with the connection of the pedal to starter, that needs to be fixed or adjusted? please advise.... 1940 buick special with documented original 39K miles.
  11. coker has the tires probably 650/16 tires, wide white walls just a bit less than $210 each for bias tires Search results for: '650-16'
  12. good idea i will look around car for a hiding plac, does anyone know for sure that this year car has only one key, I seem to remember that cars of that era had 2 keys one for the ignition and one for the doors trunk and glove compartment, Is that correct? or is the one key fits all comment correct, (i hope so)
  13. does anyone know how to get a new set of keys for a 1940 buick special. The women I bought the car from thought she had the keys (she is 91 years old) but they are not the right keys, she had over 20 40's cars that she has sold now, and that was the only set she had. is there someway based on the vin # or spec plate that would help in making the correct set of keys.
