Hello, my name is don. I own a 1988 Buick Electra park avenue. I am currently having issues with it and was directed to your website. Looks to be a vast amount of knowledge in here so I feel comfortable here already.

Hi Buick folks,

Does any one know of a spare rim (and tire) for my 1912 Buick model 35 please?

Also interior brake band and operating rod on left hand side?

Any information greatfully received.

Kind regards,

Andrew.

Hi, another new guy here. I just got a 1962 Lesabre. My uncle bought it new, when he died it went to his sister (my Aunt), when she died, my brother acquired it (1992). My brother recently died and now I have it. When my brother got it, it had about 45,000 miles on it. In spite of being a plain Jane, nothing special car, he adored it and proceeded to drive the wheels off of it. It currently sits at about 137,000 miles. I was somewhat critical of this at the time. But I now realize that that is what they were meant to do; not sit in a garage never being used.  It's a little rough at the moment. As his health declined, he really couldn't care for it the way he would have liked. 

 

I'm trying to get all of the systems working properly (turn signals, heater and carb). I bought a points replacement system for it as well as some new door seals and some modern 3 point seat belts. I probably will also change over to front disk brakes. My 9 year old son loves it and wants to ride in it, so I want it to be as safe as possible. Hopefully it will remain in the family for a long time to come. 

 

These are a couple of pictures from when the truck picked it up in Arizona to bring it back to the Midwest. It got a nice bath after it arrived. The car originally had no options other than the tinted windshield. My brother added power brakes and steering. Also, it has a 364, which surprised me since most of what I've read says it should have a 401. 

 

I used to have a 1962 Impala and I have to say the difference is night and day. 

 

Regards,

Dan

Welcome, Dan!  That’s a great looking Buick, and a great story to go with it. 

 

Whereabouts in the Midwest are you?  Perhaps we can find some local Buick experts in your neighborhood that might like to hang out with that LeSabre (and you)...

Thanks for the kind words. I'm in Wadsworth Illinois. NE Illinois,right by the Wisconsin border. My brother lived in Kenosha before him and the car moved to Arizona. I'm getting the car slowly sorted. It clearly was not setup for colder weather. I noticed the heater was disconnected. I pressure tested it before reconnecting it. Yup, it leaks.

My brother..

Welcome to the Forum Dan, 

First my condolences on your Brothers passing.  That has to be very hard. 

Please set up a thread in the me and my Buick section of this forum.  I would like to follow your progress.

If you have always wanted to get into the fray around here, kindly introduce yourselves . We really don't bite, and there is more automotive knowledge here than you can find anywhere else on the web.

Hello,

My name is Christophe, I'm 39 years old.
I live in France near beaches landing Normandy.

I bought a BUICK RIVIERA '68 in November 2016 in New Hampshire.
I received it in Le Havre on January 13, 2017.

I register on your forum to learn a lot about American cars and especially the Riviera of 1968!

I thank you in advance for your welcome!


Here are some pictures of my Riviera while waiting for me to create a subject on my Riviera.

 

 



Christophe
