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.

2013 Opel Cascada

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 14:57:00 EST

The Future Buick Verano Convertible?
I wasn't wearing a pedometer while in Germany covering the Frankfurt Motor Show this year, but it's safe to say I walked more than a few miles between press conferences, shooting cars and trekking back to the media center on the first day alone. For this reason, it didn't take much convincing from General Motors for me to duck out of the Messe a day early and drive some of its latest Opel models. No, this didn't include the all-new Country Tourer, but I was able to drive the Opel Mokka (our Buick Encore), the Opel Adam and the Opel Cascada.
I focused most of my driving time behind the wheel of the Cascada, which went on sale in Europe earlier this year, since rumors are swirling that a Buick version of this convertible "could happen soon." Buick hasn't had a convertible since the Reatta, and GM has been lacking a non-performance, budget-minded convertible since the Pontiac brand - and its G6 - was dropped, so adding the Cascada to Buick showrooms could further help the reemerging brand compete in the near-luxury segment. Although the weather was too chilly (and occasionally rainy) to enjoy the Cascada with its top down for very long, I was able to clock a fair bit of drive time behind the wheel on roads ranging from the autobahn to tight roads in small, quaint villages.

GM delivers best Q3 sales since 1980, 2.4M vehicles sold

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:33:00 EST

People are a weird sort. Even after registering over 70 recalls through the first three-quarters of 2014, General Motors saw its best Q3 results since Jimmy Carter was in the White House, registering over 2.4 million global sales between June and September on the back of strong results in the US and China.
US sales were marshaled by good results for GM's pickups, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, which bumped the manufacturer's truck market share to 35.6 percent, up nearly three points from Q1 2014. Buick has seen healthy growth as well, with the Encore dominating its segment for the sixth month running.
It was China, though, that really bolstered GM's sales, as the company's efforts to top last year's record-setting 3.16 million units continued apace. Small SUV sales saw massive growth, with Encore, Chevrolet Trax and Captiva figures jumping 90 percent in Q3. Brand-wise, Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick all saw sales gains in the PRC, with each recording double-digit year-over-year jumps. Cadillac sales alone were up 63 percent compared to the first nine months of 2013.

2013 Buick Encore

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 11:57:00 EST

Ignored On Arrival, But Coming On Strong
An image exists out there that perfectly conveys the fate we thought would befall the Buick Encore after its world debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. The shot shows the just-unveiled Encore on stage, basking in the glow of spotlights but surrounded by a large display area that's bereft of both cars and people. Two journalists are sitting on a couch over to the side, both facing the Encore but ignoring it as they inspect their swag, and a solitary custodial engineer pushes a vacuum back and forth across a sea of gray carpet.
Like a kid with his birthday cake at a party no one came to, this little crossover's debut was largely, almost cruelly, ignored. Who can blame us, though? Two shows ago, the Motor City's main stage welcomed the redesigned Aston Martin-esque Ford Fusion, the 3 Series-assassin ATS from Cadillac and the return of Dodge to the small car game with the Dart. A fourth model for the wayward Buick brand, especially one so arguably un-Buick in form and function, did not seem to deserve the attention paid to its peers that year.
