Just reaching out to say hi. I joined this morning after buying a '55 Roadmaster two weeks back.

Already started looking at rebuilding the front suspension which gave me an 'interesting' ride back to the house when I picked it up!

I am located near to Martinsburg WV, about 50 mins west of DC.

Welcome to the forum Paul - nice looking ride you have taken on. Looking forward to your posts and photos as you get more familiar with the "new" wheels.

Did you feel like you were about to get SEA SICK?

My 46 Roadmaster does, I have new shocks, and I'm sure such will cure most of the issue.

I wish you well,

Dale in Indy

Hi all ,

This week it will arrive overhere by ship so youll understand that i can not wait untill i can pick "her" up at the harbour and fire up the old Straight eight !

I hope i will find the answers i need to get things done right and bring her back into the original state.

Hello all-

My name is Steve and I'm a passionate Buick guy. My current ride is a 56 Buick Special (model 48) This car appears to be somewhat RARE as it has the original 3 on a tree trans and the original 322 nailhead. Additionaly it has a low production number (4229) off the line from Farmington Mass.

I look forward to chatting with you all soon

hi my name is Michael, i have been a collision tech and bodyman/painter for the better part of 32 years... I have built racecars,restored classics,collectible and muscle cars. My current ride is a 1969 buick wildcat with 34k one owner miles that sat in a garage for the past 20 plus years. I have the old sled running like a swiss watch now after 3 weekends of work. In my garage i have a 1976 trans am that is 75% complete on a frame off every nut,bolt and clip removed restoration. I started in the body business many moons ago in Chicago doing dealer rust repair which lent itself much to restoration. My father was a used car dealer for 55 years so i got to see many many cars pass through. My fondest memory was as a child we were at a dealer and they had just installed a drive on display rack. sitting on this rack was a hemi superbird in blue with bright orange hand drawn that said " MUST GO, SALE $ 2995.00 this was around the 1974 oil embargo.

Hello, My name is Dave and i recently purchased a 53 Buick pecial 4dr. odometer reading 32k. I know thats wrong because the speedo cable is broken. but all in all it is in really good shape for a 53.

I am new to the aaca still trying to find my way around the site.:o

My plans are to restore to factory. It runs but still planning to rebuild engine and trans and give them the original colors as well.

all the bits and bobs are there except the hood ornament and the ductwork under the hood.

53buickspecial8,

Welcome to the forum, Please consider joining the BCA. You might also reference the post by wex65 in this thread, and elsewhere as he was looking for likeminded "Buick Mountaineers", but also the nearby states. I am not sure about the distance, but you are only 2 years apart with the cars. I think his other thread ison Post War. Depending on where you are in WV, it might be a short trip for you to the National Meet in Concord, NC June 27-30, if you want to se some similar cars.

Hi, my name is Matt and I'm new to this. I am 23 yrs old and love classic cars, especially what my pops always called lead sleds. I am a big fan of the 50's Buick specials and supers. I just love the look to them and how classy they all look. Well, it's nice to meet everyone and say hi. This post is a great idea and it's nice to say hi to all. I could really use as much information and advice anyone could provide. I've never restored a classic car before so I do not know what I am dong. I live in Lancaster, pa, and have worked on older engines, and that's about as far as my experience stretches. I look forward to any advice you all have for me,

Thanks,

Matt

Very Nice!!

Thanks Bulldog, I decided though I needed something that needed less work so just picked up this 55 Special.

It is a really lovely car that needs nothing doing to it, except driving.

I will finish up some jobs on the Roadmaster and let it go to someone willing to put some time into her.

I will be bringing this Special to the local cruise Friday for her first outing.

wex 65,

Now that you have acquired another Buick, perhaps we can still pursuade you to take in the National. Are you still thinking about getting some local BCA people together in WV for a chapter?

After a little thought, as much as I would love to start a local chapter I really don't have the time. I operate a growing company and work too many hours a week to even consider it. I couldn't devote the necessary time to do it right.

I am thinking of heading to PA this weekend for the GM nationals IF I can find the time.

I joined the Buick club a few weeks back but didn't hear anything yet, looking forward to seeing the member pack which I am sure will include details of other upcoming events.

Looking forward to getting more involved once this busy period settles down.

Thanks for reaching out to me.

Paul

I sure wish you were close by, I'd love to hang with you and learn some body work. Sweet car, I consider finding low mileage,one owner cars,to be my life long goal.

Hello all - I am Robert and the owner of a '92 Regal Limited with an intermittent starting issue. I recently also purchased an '88 Lincoln Mark VII LSC (I know, I do feel like a bit of a traitor for buying a Ford - something I said I'd never do!) and from the Mark VII Club forum I've received a lot of invaluable information for fixes that I wouldn't have been able to find elsewhere. Then it occurred to me - Why not look for a Buick owner's club with a forum? While this site appears to be more geared towards antique cars it seems to be the only Buick group online with a forum. I hope someone who has owned or worked on an 80s or 90s 3.8 car with a similar starting problem can weigh in. I'm about to make a new thread to ask if anyone knows what my problem may be.

Welcome Robert. Please start that new thread about your car. There are many here who can offer advice on just about any Buick built. 92 Regals are very nice cars and welcomed in the BCA. There was a nice one on the show field at this years National Meet last week. Feel free to look around this forum group and consider joining us in membership too. It's a fun group
