This car is gorgeous!  I bought it last summer off of Ebay and had to go out to Illinois to pick it up.  That was quite an adventure as my diesel was doing funny things to me on the way back, (all the way back).

Things I've done to the car:  A new thermostat and the radiator overfill cap replaced, (old one wouldn't snap on).  And a detail job as you can see in the pics.  I've driven this car a couple of times to where I work and back, (150 miles each way), and around town.  It always gets looks and thumbs up signs.  Everyone looks from kids to old ladies!  It's a magnificent car.  The mileage is original and has not turned, it's not 110198 it's only 10198.  Pretty hard to believe for a car that's 40 years old.  The young man I bought it from put 3000 onto it and had some trouble in that area of the country, (hence the bullet strike on the back door).  That didn't go through and there are not any other strikes on the body or interior, (thank God).  He was a nice kid with a real nice young family to boot.  Wish I'd of stayed in touch with him.  (Don't think I want to go back that way though, all I smelled going out there from Wyoming was corn,... and pig pee).  Not conducive to a fun drive!  Trailered it back to Casper, WY.

The interior is immaculate.  It looks new with no tears, wears, splits, or things coming apart.  Seats, panels, and dash have no cracks or splits.  Carpet is original with no wearing.  Paint on the inside is the same too.  Black interior, looks like it came off the lot yesterday.  Radio doesn't work, (it's am anyway).  I'll have it looked at to see if maybe it might be a fuse.  Engine also is immaculate, big ol' monster big block 455.  The young man I bought it from had straight pipes put in and they shoot out the back.  I'd put quiet mufflers in but my wife has hated the car from the start and about cleaned my clock when I brought it home.  I don't understand why she doesn't like these old boats but I'd rather keep her, (had an old 65 Buick Electra in the same scenerio and it went to an older man in Louisianna, man I miss that car).  One of these day's I'll have one that I can keep.  My dream car is a red with black interior, 67 Buick Electra 4 dr. with the 455 original.

This car has a few ding spots in addition to that bullet strike as I point out in the pictures, typical for any car.  The places where the paint has worn are shown also.  It would be a shame to paint this any other color than the original gold.  What else.  The air conditioning is original and I even was going to stock up on R12 refrigerant.  The problem is is that no one has that kind of equipment to put it into a system anymore and the new refrigerant has a whole different setup, I know, I checked.  And, no guaranteeing that it won't leak and at $30 a can and at least 6 cans, youch!  It use to cost a couple of bucks when you could buy it at the local hardware store, now look up R12 on ebay.

The young man I bought it from also put air shocks on the back.  Original shocks are included in box in the back.  The air shock filler is just under the rear gas door, (under the license plate), in the back.

Spare tire I think is original as perhaps the tires that are on it.  They are all in good shape.  Original jack in the trunk.I'm six foot with fairly long legs and with the seat back, I can stretch way out.  It has more room than my crew cab chevy.

If you have any questions, please ask.  Thank you.

Buick Envision spied fully disrobed in China

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 18:28:00 EST

The Buick Envision crossover is supposed to have its big reveal on August 28 and be on display at the Chengdu Motor Show, but apparently the new midsize crossover just can't wait to meet its public. Car News China caught a completely undisguised example parking outside of the convention center where the show is held.
The Buick designers are going right down the middle with the styling with nothing too flashy to turn off potential buyers. Still, it's a handsome CUV that kind of looks like a stretched Encore from some angles with vents along the hood, a large greenhouse and a prominent crease running down the side.
This new midsizer is hitting the Chinese market first and reportedly rides on GM's Delta platform that's also found underneath the Buick Verano. According to Car News China, prices there are between 160,000 yuan and 220,000 yuan ($26,000 - $35,800 at current rates). However, it's also rumored to eventually make its way across the Pacific to give Buick buyers in the US an option between the Encore compact crossover and larger Enclave.

GM warning 800,000 owners that their cars may need oil changes more frequently than they say

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 18:32:00 EST

The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.
As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.

Buick Regal GS and troupe of basketball dribblers make great beats

Wed, 02 Apr 2014 14:57:00 EST

The 166 videos posted by YouTube music video maestro Kurt Hugo Schneider have been watched almost half a billion times. When Coke wanted to do something musically inclined and a little different, it called KHS, and the result was the video Little Talks.
Buick appears to be the next blue chip in line, and KHS' melodic celebration of the 259-horsepower Regal GS is called Epic Basketball + Car Beat. In it, a red Regal sits at center court in Venice Beach, California while a cast of ridiculous dribblers make music with and around the sedan.
We'll let the music speak for itself, which it does quite well in the video below.
