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.

GM SUV window switch recall urges owners to park vehicles outside

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 13:30:00 EST

It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two reports with potential safety implications.
In late June, GM announced that it needed to recall 181,984 examples of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Buick Rainier, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7x from the 2005-2007 model years, plus the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer EXT and 2006 GMC Envoy XL. The new documents paint a slightly different picture with 184,611 needing repaired and different model years listed.
The reason for the fix is still the same, though. It's possible for fluid to contact the master power window switch module in the driver's door, which can corrode the part. Eventually this could cause a short circuit, leaving the buttons inoperable and potentially leading to a fire. But the new NHTSA documents add an important note: "A fire could occur even while the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made."

2013 Buick Verano Turbo

Thu, 03 Jan 2013 11:57:00 EST

Not Luxury. Not Sport. Not Buick. Not Bad.
Those of you who still think of the Buick Verano as some sort of callously badge-engineered, gussied up version of the Chevrolet Cruze ("Why would anyone spend that much money on Buick's Cruze?" you may have been heard to mutter) have got the wrong idea. Entirely. Even in its most modest form, the Verano turns out to be a sedan that is feature-rich, insulated from wind and road noise in proper luxury car fashion, pretty good to drive and not bad to look at in the new school of high-nosed pedestrian-impact-regulated fashion. In a less modest form then, one that attaches the word "Turbo" to the moniker and plops a force-fed 2.0-liter four-cylinder under the hood, the Verano is downright interesting.
Of course, "interesting" is rarely a descriptor that fills one with lust - and so it goes with this example. There are two competing forces within this near-premium subcompact sedan, and the balance struck between them must resonate with any potential customer before the Verano Turbo can become a serious purchase consideration.

Buick Encore blitzes first-year sales predictions

Sat, 01 Mar 2014 17:13:00 EST

With its first full year of sales in the bag, it's safe to say that Buick has a hit on its hands with the Encore. US buyers have snatched up 31,046 of the small, premium crossovers since the Encore went on sale in January of 2013, while 97,311 were sold globally (not counting its counterparts from Opel and Vauxhall).
While we liked the Encore when we first drove it, we'll admit, we weren't sure how the tiny CUV would do. In fact, the first thing Executive Editor Chris Paukert wrote about the Encore was, "We admit it. We have no earthly idea how this whole thing is going to shake out." But it's done well, and has been subject to heavy demand over the past year, blowing away the estimates of analysts, who, according to an August story from Automotive News, projected no more than 18,500 units would be sold in 2013.
"Right out of the gate, demand for the Encore was high," Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick marketing said in a statement. "It accounted for most of the segment's growth last year and that's because it offers the right safety, technology and features in the right-sized vehicle for many customers."
