Hello there. Robert here. I just bought a 1928 Buick 28-51 Master six and figured it's time to sign on. I don't know if I'm crazy or not, but I will attempt my best at preserving this old girl.

Welcome aboard Robert,.......I'm sure that the guys in "Pre-War" forum can assist you as needed. I am concerned that a first time poster would admit to his sanity concerns though. It's OK to be "crazy" about old cars. TexasJohn, Philosopher and "Well Known Troublemaker"

Don't worry Robert.

He isn't a therapist.

Hey everyone, Tim here from Carson City, Nevada. I just joined up recently and wanted to say hi. So, howdy.

I have a 1956 Buick Special 4-door that recently got repainted and all the chrome/stainless is out getting replated and dent free. My son decided I needed a blog so that we can document and share all the fun, so check that out if you want to see my progress. We have a ways to go with getting stuff on the site though. Anyway, I'm just looking forward to getting my car back together ready for showing, and Hot August Nights is coming up in Reno, in August of course. So, can't wait for that! Maybe I will see some of you there!

That was my first car when I was 16!

Good luck with the restoration. When you get started start a thread in Me and My Buick.

Thanks, I will. I guess it will be a good place to ask my zillionseven questions before I start the project right?

Hi all. First post here for the new proud owner of 47 Super. Had to replace fuel tank first thing, now working on tail lights. To my surprise!! No outside rear view mirrors

My name: John Bell, in Western Arkansas

If any of you kind people could give me a hint where, and what type mirrors would be suitable I would be a bit grateful.

John

I will be waiting for the mirror answer as well. I have a 46 4-door RM, and I hate to drive it without mirrors, so someone HELP.

I have played with a couple, but the crank out vent windows cause so much glare, and interference.

Hello, I am Gene, living near Seattle. I just inherited a 1986 Buick Riviera when my mother died at age 88. (What a lousy way to get a car.) I love the car but miss Mom sitting next to me on our drives. She bought the car in 1993 and drove it until she had a stroke in 2007, when I became her chauffeur. She loved the car and was delighted every time I pointed out something where her Riviera is better than my 2000 Lincoln LS. It has much, much better visibility; it has more power; it has a wonderful sunroof; the seats are more comfortable; and it gets better mileage. We sure did enjoy our drives in Mom's "silver bullet".

The car was purchased new from a local dealer by an elderly couple who garaged it and drove it until they were too old to drive. The dealer bought it back from them and disassembed it to repaint it. When my mother wanted a new car the salesman showed us everything on the lot. When Mom was not satisfied with anything he had he said they were painting a car in the body shop, and took us to see it. It was completely apart--no hood, trunk, bumpers, or doors. It had no seats, console, or dash. Or rather, all those parts were laying on the floor around it. Mom took one look at it and said that is what she wanted. The salesman and I were amazed, but she knew what she wanted. We made a deal with the salesman right then. I don't remember if we signed and paid then or later, but when we picked it up the salesman said he had gotten in trouble for selling it for the price he did. I didn't know whether or not to believe that, but we drove away in a wonderful car. It has been garaged at my home ever since, and has only 57,804 miles on it. I think it is safe to say it has only been driven by little old ladies in tennis shoes (and their chauffeurs)!

I have posted a few pictures in my gallery.
