  1. Karlosdeville: "He'd like to confirm if the serial number on this tag is the same as the VIN." If 1928 is the same as 1929 McL-Buicks, the Serial number is the same as the VIN number - see photo of my Canadian Data Plate. I have not been able to find any other place that this was stamped on the Canadian cars (unlike USA made 29 Buicks where there was an aluminum tag riveted to the frame behind the front passenger wheel). Then interesting thing here is that a RHD car does not have an X or C after the model number which is typical for RHD cars produced by GM Canada. There were at least 3 model 28-49's made - 1) that's in the Museum in Ottawa (Bernice Marshall's car), 2) one that was converted to RHD, taken to England, then South Africa and back to England early in the War where it was ultimately used as a wrecker until restored by Ed Bacon. This car was sold at auction from the UK to an Austrian and returned to Canada fairly recently. Then, 3) is in India, I believe and there may be a 4th. There is a thread about the 28 Royal Tour Cars somewhere on here. Where is this car ? Bill McLaughlin
  2. Paul: Yes, I’d say it’s an oil cloth type of material that is much the same as in your picture, maybe a bit heavier than I assumed. I can snip a small piece off the inside and mail it to you if you want. Send me your address in an email (Bill@29buick.ca). Bill McLaughlin
  3. Paul: Here are 2 photos of my full cover side mount covers - which I have never used, as well as one from the early to mid-50's showing the cover installed. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McL-Buick Roadster.
  4. Paul: Your picture is of a 1929 rear-mounted spare which looks to be made out of an oil cloth type material. Some other tire cover photos on 29 Buicks are on <https://www.29buickphotos.com/Information/Wheels-Related/> and also in <https://www.29buickphotos.com/1929-Buick-Models/Members-Car-Photos/> and <https://www.29buickphotos.com/1929-Buick-Models/Historical-Pictures/> I have a set of 1/2 tire covers buried away with a set of original side curtains which I can dig out and check for you.

  5. Mark: In my bachelor days, I developed a cookbook for quickly fixing dinners. It was called “Cooking at Clean” based on my experiences with preparing meals in an oven on the “clean” cycle. I’d be happy to try your badge with my system but have to admit that there was a certain amount of trial and lots of error in developing my cookbook. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick PS: A follow up cookbook was my equally famous “Counter Top Cooking” which I’d be happy to explain to anyone that PM’s me.
  6. Matt: You're right about the quarantine period but not correct about the USA letting in Canadians in, for non-essential purposes. See US Embassy and Consulates in Canada info, below. If it was only that I'd have to quarantine after I returned home, I'd be at the Auburn - Buick meet. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McL-Buick Roadster Borders with Canada The United States and Canada have limited non-essential travel at our shared land ports of entry. “Non-essential” travel includes travel that is considered tourism or recreational in nature. “Essential travel” still permitted includes: work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care, and safety and security. Trade and business travel will continue to operate across our borders, ensuring workers and goods are not impeded. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and individuals with valid travel documents will be exempted. Land borders are operating at reduced capacity and with limited hours. Visit CBP and CBSA for details on land border crossings. In addition to restrictions on non-essential travel between the United States and Canada, a number of provinces and territories have put in place specific restrictions for travel across their borders, including for domestic travelers. Please see our COVID-19 Information Page for more details. The following categories do not fall within the definition of “essential travel:” Individuals traveling for tourism purposes, such as sightseeing, recreation, gambling, or attending Buick car meets* or cultural events in the United States. * My addition (WEM).
  7. Thanks, Larry. I'd come if I could. Not sure that US Immigration would consider a 29 McL-Buick crossing the Border to go to a Buick meet "essential" travel. As no takers for reservations, I have cancelled them. Pre-War Members, have fun at the meet! Bill McLaughlin
  8. Hello Pre-War'ers: I have a Wingate by Wyndham Auburn hotel (Thurs. to Sun.) reservation and Friday night 7:30 PM dinner reservation for 4 at the Auburn Steakhouse for the upcoming July 1-3 Auburn - Buick meet. As we Canadians are still persona non grata in the USA, I am happy to play these forward to anyone who needs them. Bill McLaughlin Bill@29buick.ca PS. Will be cancelling them early next week if I don't hear from anyone.
  9. Shame on them. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick roadster 1929 Silver Anniversary Buick Newsletter
  10. John: Thanks. Sorry I wasn't on line much since before the weekend. Send me who you sold your car to so I can send them a Welcome Package. Stay safe. Bill McL
  11. Thanks, Mark. 29Buicks came with 2 types of Wolverine bumpers in North America - your 3 bar type (most cars) and a very similar looking 2 bar one. We’re trying to find out if the bumper bar height is different on the 2 bar bumper from the 3 bar one (1&1/2”). Bill McL 1929 McLaughlin Buick Roadster
  12. Probably not a bad thing ! Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick Roadster 1929 Silver Anniversary Buick Club
  13. Hello: I'm trying to find out the width / height of the bar in a North American 1929 Buick's Wolverine 2 bar bumper. Anyone out there have a 29 Buick with the North American 2 bar bumper ? Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick Roadster With the North American 3 bar bumper
  14. Robert: Thanks - appreciated ! Bill McL
  15. Robert: Would it be possible to share your bearing interchange information and also the names and contact information for the two bearing supply places ? Thanks. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick 1929 Silver Anniversary Buick Club
