  2. MrEarl recommended that I post a link to my restoration website and blog: http://www.bessythebuick.com/ Really excited about this project! So far, I've had good luck locating needed parts and received excellent guidance from the Buick community locally (Colorado) as well as nationally. Good folks all around:) Thanks, Jeff
  3. I recently bought a property with three 1931 8-57 Buick's on it an I am parting them out because the bodys have been cut in half but everything else is still in good shape including the frames and the bodys could still be used for a rat-rod or for a major restoration project. So let me know what you guys need and I am sure we can come together on a price, I will ship.
  4. Hello All! Elise here. I have a very basic working knowledge of cars, picked up from friends along the way, but I am diving right in with my lovely lady. We had a wonderful ride last Saturday, and then again a couple of days ago... but that is when she revealed to me that she needed some assistance. Water everywhere upon stopping, and then after starting once, refused and sent fuel running from the carb. (I do suspect that the gent who put the water in the radiator for me may have simply flooded her, but I have been advised I should rebuild the carb). She did finally start again after a few taps to the carb, and I rushed her home...where she dumped water all over the street again, poor girl. A friend from a local custom shop stopped by and pointed out that the water seemed to be coming from the pump and that I should begin looking for a replacement. She is now safely in my back yard and Im now looking to learn all I can and find the appropriate parts to get her fixed up and running about again. I am located in Las Vegas and was hoping that I might be able to find some kind gents out there who I could ask questions of. I would like to know my girl and how she operates, rather than just take her to a mechanic and have them fix her up for me, so any assistance anyone would be willing to help with would be much appreciated! :-) I will be taking some more photos tomorrow of the engine compartment... as Ive been looking through the internet Ive seen something in photos that seem to be in another place in my car... lol ... could be I just do not know enough and am mistaken... but I hope someone out there will be able to assist, or suggest other sites that could be helpful. 'Looking forward to learning more, and already enjoying the existing posts here on the site. Many thanks for the interesting reading thus far, and in advance for future ones! Miss E (Elise)

  8. Hello, I'm pretty excited as this is the first time I'm posting a thread on this forum. Unfortunately, my first post is marred by tragedy(A financial tragedy, at least). The story begins when I nabbed my license approximately a year ago, as I turned sixteen. I have been collecting and restoring vintage radios, televisions, and phonographs for the past ten years so I am mechanically inclined, and my uncle owns a garage where he assured me I would have access to the resources I needed to fulfill my dream. That dream? To own a classic car and employ it as my daily driver. Foolish I know, but at that time I was having an early-mid-life crisis. My goodness, I thought to myself, sixteen years already gone! That's about a quarter of my life right there! Social Security checks would start rolling in any day now. It was time to really start living. My parents agreed to go half and half on the vehicle and I saved up $7000 through working various jobs. To make a long story short, I ended up paying fourteen grand for a '51 Buick Special Riviera. Seriously, fourteen with three zeros behind it. The car is a nice, unmolested survivor with 51,000 on the OD. Sat in a barn in the Nevada desert for twenty five years. No major problems (Except for a cracked intake, but by the grace of god I managed to locate a cheap spare). I love the car to death, and plan to drive it for many years. However, I feel as though I've overpaid by at least $6000 if not more, and I need someone to check my sanity, because I'm seriously freaking out right now. I didn't expect to make an investment, let alone an extremely profitable one, but the idea that I overpaid by that much is making me nuts. I guess I just wanted to vent a little, sorry if I wasted your time. Sincerely, Jacob
  9. This is a native Colorado car with a solid body and virtually no rust. The car is mostly complete, has never been restored. It has a straight eight engine that ran, I am told, a few years ago. It turns by hand but I have not tried to start her. It has a radiator problem, I am told and the car comes with 2 radiators. Thisis a really nice project car$2000
  10. Hey all, I own a 1951 Buick Special equipped with the dreaded "Dynaslow", "Dynaslush", or however you prefer to call it. It's honestly not that bad, granted I've only driven it for about a month. But, I was wondering, how much wear would it put on the transmission if I started off in low gear and then proceeded to switch to drive at around 30? You've probably got this question plenty of times at this point, but I couldn't find any other threads regarding this topic. Thanks for your time. Sincerely, Jacob
  11. i am having a problem removing my steering column from my 56 buick special i tried everything i can think of its the only thing holding me up from taking my body off any help would be greatly appreciated thanks
  12. I have a nice tail light lens to replace the one on the right side of my 1941 Buick. I removed the tail light easily enough but the lens did not come out with it. It appears that it is held in by a fragile frame of some sort. What is the accepted procedure to get at the lens without breaking stuff? All the original 73-year old materials are still in place. I have attached some photos. Any help appreciated. Thanks! Photos: Tail Light, outside ; Tail Light inside, light body removed ; Replacement lens

  14. We were looking into buying a 1931 Buick Series 80 sedan but we were wondering how they were to drive? How are the brakes? How is the steering? As a comparison, how much harder to drive are they than a Model A Ford?

  23. 1964 Buick Riviera - Gorgeous Turn Key Car with Smooth Riding Hydraulics & Chrome True-Spoke Rims We are looking to sell our 1964 Buick Riviera. It is a super clean car with beautiful silver paint, gorgeous blue stock interior in great condition, fully functioning hydraulic system, clean true spoke wire rims, and a nailhead engine that runs and drives great. This is a turn key car. The car is located in Pennsylvania and has a clean title. Hydraulic set up. 48 volts to front and rear pumps. Accumulators(shocks) on rear for smoother ride. CCE hydraulics all chrome set up. Very reliable. 2 years driven weekly and never had any problems. This car could be taken to any show today and fair well, it is also in the perfect position to either be customized further, or it could easily be converted back to a stock car by removing the hydraulic system and putting stock wheels and tires back on. We are asking $22,000 or the best reasonable offer. Please message me with offers or call 717-226-3393 and ask for Vinny or Vanessa Scalavino for more information about the car. Thanks for looking.
  24. When I shot this video the focus wasn't supposed to be on my car, but rather on the place we used to cruise when we were teenagers. Unfortunately, I no longer own this car. I sold it a couple of years ago because it was becoming way too hard to find parts for it. No matter, since this is a Buick forum, and the Grand National was the only Buick I ever owned, I felt compelled to share it's memory with all the Buick Lovers out there. I hope you enjoy the ride, even though my wife was driving so I could film..... HINT: If you watch this video in Full Screen mode it's almost as if you are riding along!
