  1. A couple of years ago I came across a 1949 Buick parked behind a service station, ( the old fashioned kind ), it looked like somebody's project. Then a few feet away was a shell which I think is also a 49 Buick and it is right hand drive. The garage was closed so I didn't hang around too long or take pictures. I did make contact with the owner, he gave me the not for sale story, doin' er up someday, but unfortunately nothing done with them yet.

  2. There is a guy here in Newfoundland who took a straight eight out of his 54 Pontiac last summer to install a 350 Chev. If you are interested I could give him a call and see if he still has it.

I never knew there was a difference in the Ford and Mercury other than trim. What is the difference in the fender? Length? wheel opening? If you are on Facebook there is a page called Canadian Monarch and perhaps you might find info from somebody on there. Looking at this truck, it looks similar but if you have tried Ford parts you would know. 

  4. Although I grew up on the East coast of Canada, when I was a teenager I was into British cars. My first car was a 62 Consul 315 ( Capri ). I also had a 58 Wolseley, 61 and 64 Rover 3 litres. Austins were a popular car here, Hillmans, Vauxhall. but there is one still here that has evaded me and is unusual. It is a Daimler Dart.

  5. Sorry Pete, I am not a member of the Buick Club of America. I have not researched the production numbers for my car but I think it is fairly low. I have paperwork for it from when it was purchased new in New Mexico. The original Buick 8 track tape player is still in it and even the 8 track tape that was supplied by the dealer. I forgot to mention above that it has the V6, the famous oddfire engine.

  6. This past summer I bought a 1976 Buick Skylark S/R. It is mostly original Texas car which now has 39,000 miles. It is a very nice car to drive, has ps, pb, cruise and ac, bucket seats. In the late 90s I had a 76 Skylark coupe and sold it because it was too new to be an old car. I usually have 40s and 50s cars. I think this one will be a keeper.
