Hello, my name is Cyndi and I'm just out here looking for information about how to figure out what my inherited vehicle is worth. I haven't found much information on the internet as to how to evaluate the worth of an older Oldsmobile, so I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction out here. Possibly, this isn't the right place to look either, but a friend's Dad said this might be helpful, so here I am.
Hi Cyndi,you are in the wrong place, this is a Buick forum but we can help, need to know what model it is, how many miles etc. Try this link below.

Hope that helps!

I'm John - I have a 1939 Buick Business Coupe (original engine and tranny) I purchased just over a year ago. I found the car in New Mexico and purchased it from a man who bought it in 1971 and did the maintenance and restoration. It is a driver and I have put about 1,800 miles on it so far. I have added some NOS and restored or rebuilt parts in the last year, and still have a few things to do, but am having a ball with the car. Have entered a few shows and have several awards so far, but the real pleasure is the joy people get seeing the car in traffic here in the Dallas area - lots of horn honks and thumbs up. Only scary thing is when they start trying to get a photo while driving and about run into me.

Hello, Mike here with a 1928 Model 28-29 Town Brougham. I am fortunate to have the history of the Buick from day one. My purchased began in the fall of 1989,but the deal was not sealed until 1994.The old girl completed her first Glidden in 1995 in Reading, PA. Certification in the AACA HPOF followed. Since then 6 Gliddens and many national and local show followed, the most recent Fall Bristol. I have always wanted to show her at a Buick National and certify in the archival class, but things never worked out. 2012 Charlotte is on the books. Hope to see ya there.

Hello everyone,

My name is Scott. Taking a break from Turkey dinner to send of an intro. I just joined this forum from a reference I found over on V8Buick.com - I've been a member there since '07. I live in the Western Mass, USA area and am a major old car fan. The '70's are my favorite era of American cars, although anything made before 1980 is okay in my book! I have a few pics of my rides on my .net site in my signature.

Hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving holiday.

- Scott

Hello, My name is Lloyd. I am entering the back half of restoring a 1935 Buick Sedan, 40 Series that has been in my dad's barn for nearly fifty years. It will be his Christmas present. I am looking for the hood ornament that was attached to these beautful vehicles. I beleive it was the flying goddess with either her hair or cape flying back. If anyone knows where I can locate one (within $ reason), I would appreciate it very much. Thank you kindly.

Hi;

My name is Pete I own a 67 GS 400 with a auto 400 trans, pb,ps,pw and most importantly here in Florida A/C. The car's in rough shape I plan to just get it running and driving it as I try to fix the rust bucket up. It wont be a show car and probably wont even be ready to be driven for a long long time. I'm not sitting on a ton of money but it will get done eventually.

I picked up a 66 parts car and a lot of sheet metal will be coming from there like I said it's going to be a long haul.

Pete

Hey welcome. You should put up some pictures, I'd love to see the thing. You sound like you're kind of in my position as far as the project goes. Baby steps get the job done eventually though.

Hi, my name is Charlie. I joined today to try to learn some things from you guys. I have two 1966 Grand Prix's that will take a back seat to a 1950 Buick Super 4 door that I am hoping to have ready for my daughter's birthday in August.

The car is in pieces with carb and generator off to be rebuilt and chrome pieces off to be rechromed. The shock absorbers in the front are shot and my brake system sprung a leak somewhere and ran dry.

Thanks for your help and hospitality!

Thanks Ben,

With my PONTIAC hat firmly on the shelf I stepped 16 years backwards into the crumbling cloth covered wiring and lever arm shock absorbers that are the 1950 Buick. It will take some real doing to become a full-fledged Buick man like you guys but I feel like I will have some real fun in the process.

I love your postings and pics. These old cars are sort of scary looking and this past Halloween I was tempted to put a lit jack-o-lattern in the driver's seat of this one. Steven King had the right idea with his Buick 8 book!

What a cool angle to that pic. Good thing you didn't put that lit pumpkin inside the car though. Chances are you'd be putting the Pontiac hat back on whilst the smoldering hulk was towed away.

BTW, Did you know the Buick Club of America was holding the next National Meet right over in Concord NC? Not far from you? Good time to join the https://www.buickclubofamerica.org/subscribe.html

Mike,

If you'll check the rest of the site, you can post your wants in the Buy/Sell forum. Welcome anyways! I hope your car becomes everything you imagine it will be. There is a "world" of help here on the forum, and as long as you're patient, someone will answer your questions. We all have our babies that we are working on and sometimes don't get a chance to get right back with you.

:)

i did post buy/sell and i will be patient and ty

Hi Kozaka, I didn't see anything in the Buy/Sell Forum. I don't have your parts but the 71 Riviera is a sweet car. The Riviera group which is part of the Buick section is probably your best bet but since the car is basically Buick, if you have general questions you should feel free to start a new thread in this section as well. We love all Buicks here.

Well Kozaka, we have a general policy here which loosely interpreted says , Your Buick, Your Way. While the front of that car is not my preference, it's not my car to judge.
