Hi all, I am Clark and have had a 48 Buick since 1978, military duty has kept me away from it. Wife and I finally bit the bullet and had it restored. I'm not too good at that stuff. Hoping to get car to some shows. Kind of confused about the categories to enter. Mean while having fun lurking in the wings.[ATTACH=CONFIG]234609[/ATTACH]

New to this forum. I signed up to help a friend who needs parts to complete his 1949 Buick sedan Street rod project. Car is complete but for the two rear quarter side chrome pieces. They are hard to find. I figured this is the place to look for help finding these parts. They are 76" long. Been looking for weeks now. So any info would be very helpful. Very beautiful car, lots of custom features. Still snowing here in northern Michigan but waiting for these to chrome pieces before he will let anyone see it. Hopefully when done , I will post some pictures.

Hi Clark,

I recognized your beautiful car from the Velocity/Discovery "What Do You Ride?" web site. I've given your car several thumbs-up! :cool:

Hi Mike, Newbie here. Steve Ernster ("Ernie" for obvious reasons). I have not been active in any type of club or auto organizations up til now and am interested in conversing with fellow enthusiasts so I took a look at this forum. First car purchased was a '40 Special 2 door sedan back in '72 and still have it. It was my everyday driver for may years back then. As a kid I always liked the Fords but by luck of the draw I started with the Special and that shot me in a whole new direction that I have never recovered from. Also have a '66 Chevelle I purchased from my uncle back in high school (still have it) so that gave me a bit of a side bar to the Buicks over the years. I enjoy wrenching on them and have the most fun bringing something that sat for eons back to life. Also enjoy the body work and paint (had a body shop in another life) and occasionally teach paint classes for the guys that want to do it at home (specializing in demonstrating how much can be done without anything special or expensive. I look forward to getting a bit more involved others in the hobby.[ATTACH=CONFIG]235634[/ATTACH]

P.S. That's Dave Tachney in the picture unloading the 37 60C. He's very dangerous to know if you have a weakness for Buicks!

Welcome to Ernie, Jose and ccluber. Looking forward to your individual thread on the Me and My Buick forum. Nice part about this forum is sharing our experiences all year, instead of just at a National Meet. Hope all three of you consider going the Forum Breakfast at the next national meet.

You're very welcome Ernie. I like the idea of what you teach. I would love to learn more about that.

I'm Geoff, proud owner of a 1949 Super sedanette. It's black, in excellent condition for an older restoration and mechanically excellent. It has never given me any problems, which is good since I believe in driving vintage cars - they're time machines. They combine culture, art, engineering and history in one practical and endearing package.

I purchased the car in February 2012. It was is Pasadena, CA and I had it shipped in a closed trailer (InterCity Lines provided excellent service). I had wanted a 49 sedanette for ten years and in December 2011 I had the conversation with my wife. She supported the purchase and a search ensued. I found the car online the following January and concluded the deal on Saturday, February 4. The car arrived Sunday February 24th, 2012, a great day! It has been a pleasure to own the car and I've made some minor repairs: heater valve and re-plumbing the heater system; disassembling and lubricating the starter, re-doing the vacuum and fuel lines in the engine compartment, replacing the rear shock shaft seals, adjusting the brakes and I am currently removing the dash and garnish to repaint all.

The interior is excellent and correct for the Trim code. I have learned a lot on this forum and met several BCA guys here, all of whom were a great help. I am compiling the narrative and pictures of the dash removal and painting. While it's out, I will replace the wiring harnesses.

Thanks for the great introduction Geoff and WELCOME. Love them '49 sedanette's

Thanks Lamar. I had the pleasure of spending 12 days in Athens Georgia in 1984 at the then-Navy Supply Corps School. I eventually changed designators and switched to Intelligence, retiring as an Intelligence Officer from the Navy Reserve. Enjoyed Athens nevertheless.

Weren't you selling your '54? I thought I saw a "modified" Uncle Sam ad somewhere...

Hi, I'm Chuck from So Cal. Considering the purchase of a 1963 Buick Skylark convertible from a friend. Found this site while researching info about the car. Hope to learn from this site and share what I learn with others. My father is currently fixing up a 1964 Ford Falcon convertible and enjoying every minute of it! He's had several cars over the years ('63 Corvette, Model A, MG - A model, '64 Chevy Impala SS - purchased new, '59 Nash Metropolitan, '54 Cadillac CDV, '70 Porsche 911T, '69 Karmann Ghia convertible, '70 Impala convertible, '56 Ford F-100 pick up, and others I can not recall at the moment) and now being retired for several years, has found much enjoyment in tinkering with this Falcon.

BTW...if you can share any info on this Buick (forums, sources for parts, etc) it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Welcome, Chuck! My second car in high school was an MGA - your dad has great taste in cars! The Buick Club of America has a lot of members who are active on these forums, not just on the Buick sites. They have been instrumental sources of information, knowledge and confidence to me as I rebuilt my hearter control valve, replaced the shaft seals on my rear shocks and other improvements on my 49 Super. If you're like me, you will be amazed at how much time you spend on the site.

if you haven't already, join the Buick Club of America to get plugged into great sources of knowledge and parts.

my name is josh.

i just sold my 66 IH Travelall 1200 4wd so i could get something a little more highway friendly for longer trips etc. Came across a nice 1970 Lesabre 455 on craigslist, which was really the catalyst to sell the travelall. So i ended up with said Lesabre. one owner car, build 10-10-69, sold on 11-11-69. Save for an incorrect replacement vinyl top, and the passenger side of the car being painted, it has turned out to be a very original car. Came with build sheet, protectoplate, and final inspection paperwork. Not to mention that hoss of a 455! anywho...maybe i can help someone, somewhere, with something...but i usually just read.

oh...i put those electra wheel covers on there.

there's my intro

Hi guys and gals,

I'm Wilfred, I live in The Netherlands and have been a (classic) Mopar driver for over 11 years. But… In the same time my #1 dream car was a 1949 Buick Sedanette. Since this year I own a Buick and will sell my last Mopar for it. It's still in the US but will come here soon (I hope!).

My daily job is theater technician and sound designer. In The Netherlands it's something else as in the US. My job is as follows:

When a theater group begins making a new show I'll make a sound design for it, sometimes (a lot of times) also the lighting plan and video. Then we'll tour through our country and I will build the show every day (sound, light, video), then run the show (sound, light, video), afterwards break it up and go to the next venue the next day.

In the summer there's not a lot of theater work so then I try to drive my classic cars as much I can.

Cheers, Wilfred

Welcome Wilfred! When does the 49 arrive? Post some pictures when you get it.

Thanks Geoff.

When end it's here will be a surprise. The car has to be shipped to the port first (probably this week) and then wait to be shipped out (takes longer now due to harsh winter) and then a few weeks at sea. I hope it will be here end of March but it will probably be April.

Hello, I'm Adam and have been obsessed with finding a 1955 4 door hardtop Buick for the last two years. I live in the rust belt capital it seems, so my search has been across the US and leaving me to find a car that seems to be close to the cost of getting it home.

I like to ride sport bike (currentlly a Honda '98 VFR800), offroad trail riding with the 400EX when I can and the rest of my time is spent at work or with my young family.

It's a tease to want one of these land yachts, as I'm sure getting one road ready can be almost as costlly as aquiring it. I hope to learn from you folks and maybe get to pull the trigger sooner than later and get my girls in a car to remember like my dad did with his 1962 Sedan Deville.
