Greetings All: My name is PAUL. I am a new member with AACA but have been viewing AACA's website for the last 15+ years without joining until a few weeks past. I am a transplant from South Carolina to Sacramento  in 1990. My Father was a B-26 Bomber navigator (Martin Marauders I think is the nickname for that Model Military airplane). After WW2 my father purchased a 1933 Buick Victoria Coupe 50 series from a retired doctor in Greenville SC. Sales price: $50.  While in SC he used that car to travel from his residence to Furman University (Greenville SC) on the GI Bill. His 4 kids (including myself) loved being driven in the old car back in the 1960s and 1970s. The 1933 Models for Buick to me look just as attractive today as back when I first was induced to them was a kid.   I have little kids (started a Family late) and have educated my kids on the history and craftsmanship of the 1930s cars including Buick.

 

Aside from some other non-Buick collector vehicles I have the following FOUR Buicks, all 1933 Models:

The question about the definition of the word coupe.  

 

Similar question: Why does a chicken coupe have two doors?

 

 

 

 

 

 

If it had four doors, it would be a chicken sedan

Hello! This is Dave from Hanover Massachusetts. I am currently the proud owner of a 1961 Buick Special Sedan. I acquired this beauty from Garden City, Idaho this past August. I found it listed on the internet back in June of this year and kept my eye on it.

The '61 is in wonderful original condition. It has the 215 V8 and rides like a dream. After a 25 year hiatus I decided to get back into the Classic Car hobby with today's technology bringing so many available vintage autos at the click of a keyboard. Among my past rides are a '64 Buick Skylark Convertible, '67 Olds 442, '69 Dodge Dart GT , '71 Pontiac T-37 and my very first car from 40 years ago, a '67 Dart GT.

I'm excited to be back only unlike over a quarter of a century ago I can now share & receive news & info from countless vintage car enthusiasts. I'm a General Motors guy but love all great American built cars from days gone by.

Welcome, Dave.  

  Had a green on in the mid '60s. Great little car.

 

  With that name, sir, you have a lot to live up too in this Buick circle.   Again , welcome.

Hi, my name is Mark, aka 59ELEC from Sidney, Ohio! (yes, Ohio, not Australia) I have had many Buicks throughout the years but didn't discover Buick love until I met my 59 Electra. I had never seen one before and could not get over those gorgeous curves! Fins coming and going, absolutely awesome! Now bear in mind that this car is a basket case that spent the last 30+ years sitting in a corn field, but the body is intact and that is all I need. I have the ability to see the finished product through the rust and crud. My vision is a wild custom, fully modernized including the frame and drive train. But I will not alter those curves or chrome!

 

I have read a lot of posts here and think I will fit right in.

Welcome.  If you've read a lot of posts, then you know "if there are no pictures, then it didn't happen."  😎

Welcome aboard @59ELEC !!!! Hope you'll post more about your custom '59  perhaps in the Buick Modified forum HERE  The Modified forum is growing with several builds such as what you have planned. Here's hoping that you keep the heart/engine a Buick. :)

Just picked up a 63 Riv cause I have loved the styling of this car forever. With every car purchase a little blood and tears has to fall to get it in shape as the way the new owner would like it.

I have given much to the blood bank and lots left on the garage floor. I told myself 'never again' but here I go.

just a couple of pics:

Nice ride.  I like the wheels even though they're not original.  Are you going to leave then on the car?  I would.

Hi there,

 

I am a 22 years old marketing student from Canada. I just bough a 75' Buick Electra Landeau last autumn. It is a bit rough but it runs very good. It has 3 inches exhaust system with cherry bombs and 4 inches exhaust tips at the end - needless to say it roars !! It doesn't have the 455, it has a 67' or 68' 430. I am looking forward to make it even nicer over the next summer !

 

Thanks

Hey Welcome! Where are you located in Canada, and what's your first name, Have alot of friends in Canada and travel through Ontario to visit family in upstate NY. Check out V8Buick.com and read lots as there are all kinds of info about Buick V8's the '67-75 400, 430, 455 share alot of parts just got better and bigger as they aged, my best suggestion is to  read as much as you can before making any decisions and then you can ask good questions. I read the service manuals as a teenager for the '56 Buick, '64 Buick and even a '71 Oldsmobile,

Hello @BUICK RACER ! I am located in Quebec, the one and only country of maple syrup ! I will most definitely have a good look on V8Buick to learn as much stuff as I can ! I am really looking forward to create something unique with this car since this base is pretty unsual/uncommon and we don't see them very often.

I will probably keep them yeah. They are Corvette vintage wheels. The car had redline tires back in the days and it really looked awesome.

Recently, I have noticed a lot of activity with people who have less than 20 posts. I, for one, am excited to see this. 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.

Welcome in...

 

Hey Guys,

New Buick owner from S.C. home of 2018 College Football National Champs.  Just picked up a 1939 series 40 two door pretty much all original and restored a few yrs ago.  Olive Green with tow tone brown/beige cloth interior with gangster wall tires.  I will have a lot of questions since I am mostly a chevy corvette guy.

Don’t look like a shop to me but a display case. There is a garage thread on the forum, you may pick u some tips for your own built.
