  1. I found a trunk lid rear center housing with fluted taillight and "BUICK" name in silver, plus the license plate bracket in really nice shape (minus the rubber gasket) Paid $5 and thought I did well because a few years back just the lens with poor paint on the letters was $75 at another vendor- Will post pic when I empty the truck. Also got a working manually operated Klaxon horn for $25 A vintage Snap-On Inch-Pound Torque wrench for $15 in the original box with instructions (and the warranty card) and 6 very decent full wheel covers for my 1954 Caddy - ($20 for the six of them, not $20 each) A pair of 55 watt Quartz Iodine driving lights with wiring, relay, and switch in the unopened original case - $5 for daughter's BMW 528e Metal vintage style tire valve stem caps packaged @ 4 caps / $1
  2. I have aquired two (2) complete 13 piece gasket sets for Packard Ultramatic transmission in sealed packaging and hope someone can give me an idea as to the need, and the value of each set. I will be at Hershey Chocolate Field CG 32

  5. With AAA membership I paid about $100 at NAPA for my 3EE for the 1954 Cadillac. I believe the above mentioned sticker will work on that one also
  6. I use these same BFG Comp-2 AS tires on our C-4 Corvette and find them to be an excellent, affordable all-weather tire for the "Touring-Style" driving we do. We've taken several cross-country trip on these tires and are very satisfied with the comfort, handling, and minimal wear shown so far over the three years they've been on the car.
  7. Rod, Congratulations on yoour "LONG DISTANCE DRIVEN" trophy. I enjoyed talking with you at our table in the tent for the lunch, and sorry I didn't get to see you at the closing banquet, but wish you a safe trip home from the AACA GLIDDEN - and hope to visit with you again next year in Saratoga Springs, NY. Maybe I'll have my '37 Roadmaster there next time. Your car looked great on tour!
  8. He should offer it to the hobby at a scrap price, win-win. Sell the Franklin parts the same way!
  9. I usually tie down my 1941 Cadillac by the rear portion of the lower ontrol arm, and cross-tie. This has worked for 14 years, and not caused problems
  10. To the best of my understanding they were neither only for certain models, nor a factory accessory. These scripts and years appear to be essentially hobby related.The late Arthur Evans used to make these "to order", and sell them at Hershey. I don't know if anyone else is doing them now.
  11. Many thanks to all- I appreciate your kind words and look forward to the many positives provided by this FORUM and our many contributors
  12. Rear mount Spare Tire Carrier for 'Teens or 'Twenties vehicles, Originally from a late-teens large series Buick , but likely useable, or adaptable to many other vehicles. I think it cost me $150 several years ago, and would like to get that back, but I'm open to reasonable offers plus shipping costs. I'm located in New Orleans, but could transport to: Hershey, Glidden Tour (Rock Hill, SC) Mobile, Alabama in October to AACA Nationals

  14. Thanks, Gunsmoke, and your comment noted, appreciated, and fixed
  15. Hope to meet you, as well. I'll be at the Chocolate Field AACA Membership Booth on thursday morning between 8:00 and 10:00 AM, but with several meetings to attend, will spend only sporadic time at my swap spaces CG 32 - 34
  16. I'm constantly amazed by the experience, breadth of accumulated knowledge, willingness to share, and assistance offered by the participants of our FORUM. I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the FORUM community in general. A big Thank You to you who make the old car hobby better than it might otherwise be! SEE YOU DOWN THE ROAD, AND TAKE A KID, HIS PARENTS, AND HIS GRANDPARENTS, TO A CAR SHOW
  17. Seatbelts became mandatory equipment in the USA for the 1968 models Despite the naysayers, and comments to the contrary, and since all of our collectibles are driven, and frequently driven cross-country, and regrettably as a potential target for: texters, speeders, iPhone conversersationalists, drunks, road-rage afflicted, and other inattentive "drivers". All of them have properly anchored seatbelts, and I feel better about our chances to survive the type of accidents which have the potential to occur. When my wife's 1966 Dodge Dart GT convertible was T-Boned from the right and slammed into an abutment on her left, her driver-side door flew open but she was not thrown out, nor could the car pass over her. Yes, she sustained knee and shoulder injuries, but had the belt not restrained her I'd likely have lost her. I've seen slipshod and/or poorly designed installations, and decry those. I've also seen inventive solutions and applaud those. My preference is to stay belted, not slide across a seat while trying to hold on to a steering wheel of a Studebaker Pickup,. It happened to me back in early 1963 when T-Boned from the right by a new Cadillac which slid through a stop sign on a snowy street. He, the preacher driving the Cadillac, was ticketed for: 1. driving too fast for conditions, 2. running a stop sign, 3. expired drivers license, 4. no NJ State inspection 5. DWI ... and I was going to cost "his church" a fortune since he "couldn't" afford insurance He demanded that I attend "His" church to atone for creating "His" new legal problems since I had no business getting in his way because he was on his way to visit a sick friend. (I declined the offer). Installed in a professional manner, seatbelts do not cause a points deduction with regard to AACA judging. You, of course, are free to follow your preference, but I frequently think back to the comment of a State Trooper, made to me while serving the Governor's Office, noting that with regard to all of the motor vehicle wrecks he had investigated, he had never had to unbuckle a corpse.
  18. I would have jumped on the one a couple of weeks back - the yellow '49 Roadmaster convertible needing paint and some attention- but just don't have additional space at the moment-
  19. You might read the comments on this link, click on the header. Auburnseeker asked the advice of FORUM members. He apparently is not buying the Buick Victoria ion the discussion, and may be willing to pass the contact info to you. Welcome to the FORUM:
  20. Auburnseeker, If you definately pass on this one, maybe consider sharing the contact so others on this FORUM, and the BUICK portion of the FORUM may consider it? This is a relatively rare, and desireable model
  21. Get rid of those 12-volt cables because they cannot carry the required amperage. Get Double Aught (00), or Triple Aught (000), or even use welding cable, and have the ends soldered, not crimped, then go back to the instructions Bloo offered, above Good luck
  22. Auburnseeker, Run, do not walk, with the seller, to your local DMV, and get this gem transferred iinto your name. You'll never regret owning and driving a Straight Eight Buick. This 1931 Full Classic is the first year for the Buick, and a Victoria is an especially nice body style. Assuming the wood is good, you'll love just how solid it is, based on my experience with my 1934 sedan and 1937 Phaeton. What Matt has noted above rings true, ... and you won't even need a trailer to drive it to next year's GliddenTour, based in Saratoga Springs, NY
