ANY QUESTIONS JUST EMAIL ME: grayceglleishman@devotedparents.com . BEAUTIFUL 1965 BUICK RIVIERA GRAN SPORT TRIBUTE WITH DUAL QUADS, RE-CHROMED DUAL SNORKLE AIR CLEANER & ALUMINUM
FINNED VALVE COVERS.I PURCHASED THIS CAR IN 2011. I SAVED IT FROM A VERY LONG STORAGE IN A MICHIGAN BARN. IT HADN'T BEEN REGISTERED
SINCE 1982. BUT TO THE OWNERS CREDIT, HE DID START IT AND YARD DRIVE IT PERIODICALLY. HE WAS THE 2ND OWNER OF THE
CAR & CLAIMED THE MILEAGE WAS CORRECT. BUT SHOWED NO PROOF OF IT. THE PAINT WAS VERY DULL. BUT IT ONLY HAD SOME
MINOR RUST IN THE LOWER REAR 1/4'S. WHICH I HAD PROPERLY REPAIRED PRIOR TO PAINT.
THE #'s MATCHING LT CODE 401ci NAILHEAD RUNS STRONG! MILD CAM, ALUMINUM VALVE COVERS & DUAL QUADS (WITH RECHROMED
AIR CLEANER) WERE INSTALLED IN 2012. NO LEAKS. NO ISSUES. NEW BELTS, HOSES, THERMOSTAT, DISTRIBUTOR CAP, ROTOR,
WIRES, PLUGS, AIR & FUEL FILTERS. 4 NEW WHEEL CYLINDERS, ALL 4 DRUMS TURNED & NEW FRONT BRAKE HOSES IN 2014.
REPAINTED IN 2013. STRIPPED TO BARE METAL, PRIMED & FINE SANDED. PPG BASE COAT CLEAR COAT WAS USED. IT CAME OUT
VERY NICE! IT IS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW & HAS A MIRROR LIKE FINISH. BOTH BUMPERS WERE RECHROMED AT THAT TIME. ALSO
INSTALLED NEW HOOD INSULATION, TRUNK MAT SET, TRUNK BOARD SET, DOOR & TRUNK WEATHERSTIPPING. YES, I HAVE A LOT OF
MONEY INVESTED INTO THIS CAR!
IN 2014 I INSTALLED A NEW HEADLINER, SAIL PANELS, REAR SHELF PANEL & FRONT SEATS WERE REUPHOLSTERED. I PLANNED TO
KEEP THIS CAR FOR A WHILE. SO I DECIDED TO MAKE MYSELF A MILD CUSTOM GRAN SPORT THE WAY I WANTED IT. I'M NOT A BIG
FAN OF THE ORIGINAL WOODGRAIN. SO I CHOSE TO CHANGE THE INTERIOR WOODGRAIN TO CARBON FIBER.
THE CAR STARTS UP EASILY, RUNS GREAT & DRIVES STRAIGHT! THE SINGLE REAR MUFFLER WAS REMOVED & IS RUNNING ON THE TWO
SMALLER RESONATOR MUFFLERS. I DID THIS TO GIVE IT A DEEP THROATY TONE. I THINK IT SOUNDS GREAT!
I HAD THE CLAMSHELL VISORS SODA BLASTED WHEN THE CAR WAS BEING PAINTED. BUT MADE THE MISTAKE OF USING A PAINT PEN
TO REFINISH THEM. AFTER A FEW WASHES MOST OF THE PAINT WASHED OFF. YOU CAN SEE THAT IN THE PHOTOS.
ITEMS THAT WILL NEED ATTENTION.
THE HEADLAMP MOTOR HAS BEEN PULLED & NEEDS TO BE REBUILT OR CONVERTED TO NEWER STYLE MOTORS TO OPEN THE HEADLAMP
DOORS. (There is a guy here on eBay that rebuilds them for $275. I've also heard some people claim to get them
rebuilt for under $150.) THE CLAMSHELLS OPEN & CLOSE MANUALLY VERY EASILY.
THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT CANCEL. SO YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY CANCEL IT.
THE POWER DRIVER SEAT STOPPED WORKING EARLIER THIS YEAR.
ALL 4 POWER WINDOW MOTORS WORK. BUT THE RIGHT REAR NEEDS TO BE ADJUSTED. SEEMS TO HAVE GONE OFF TRACK. BUT IS
SITTING IN THE CLOSED POSITION WITH NO ISSUE.
THE A/C COMPRESSOR & CONDENSER WERE REMOVED. BUT WILL BE INCLUED IN THE SALE. I KEPT THE COMPRESSOR OFF BECAUSE IT
BLOCKED THE VIEW OF THE RIGHT VALVE COVER. I LIKE THE WAY IT LOOKS BETTER WITHOUT IT.
ORIGINAL RADIO WORKS BUT NEEDS NEW SPEAKERS. I PLANNED TO UPDATE THE AUDIO SYSTEM BUT NEVER GOT AROUND TO IT. SO
THAT WILL BE LEFT UP TO THE NEW OWNER.
YES, THIS CAR COULD USE A FEW THINGS. BUT NOTHING THAT TAKES AWAY FROM IT'S BEAUTY. IT'S A GREAT CAR THAT YOU CAN
GET IN & DRIVE TO LOCAL CRUISE NIGHTS PROUDLY. I BELIEVE THAT THE NEXT OWNER WILL BE VERY HAPPY WITH THIS CAR.
ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THAT WITH A MINOR ADDITIONAL INVESTMENT. IT WOULD BE A $35K-$40K CAR. THE ONLY REASON I
HAVEN'T COMPLETELY FINSHED EVERYTHING. I DON'T HAVE THE MONEY TO DO SO AT THIS TIME. WHICH IS THE SAME REASON I
HAVE THE CAR FOR SALE

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.

2014 Buick LaCrosse updated with new styling, tech

Mon, 25 Mar 2013 08:00:00 EST

Buick might have one of the smallest lineups among major automakers, but by the time the 2014 model rolls around, it will definitely have one of the freshest. Debuting at the New York Auto Show this week, the 2014 Buick LaCrosse receives numerous styling changes inside and out, and it benefits from many of the same new features found on closely related models like the Cadillac XTS and the 2014 Chevrolet Impala.
Exterior changes are relatively minor, but they still help give the car a fresh, new look. The new face of the 2014 LaCrosse fits in with recently new or redesigned Buick models with its oversized waterfall grille, LED-trimmed headlights and the signature hood vents being moved to the side of the hood rather than the top. Similar changes have been made to the rear, like the reshaped LED taillights, the full-width chrome trim and a new fascia design; LaCrosse models equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 will still get the integrated exhaust finishers but they're executed in a more stylish manner than the current model. Finishing off the exterior, new wheel designs are also being introduced, which will include bringing 20-inch wheels to the sedan's option list.
Inside, Buick redesigned almost the entire cabin to create a more luxurious and upscale appearance. The instrument panel is essentially carried over, but pretty much everything else has been redesigned and updated with the biggest change being to the driver's area. Dual eight-inch configurable displays make up the center stack and gauge cluster, while the overall number of buttons have been reduced from 17 down to just seven. The 2014 LaCrosse will also be offered with the next-generation IntelliLink, which receives many of the same enhancements as Chevy's latest version of MyLink adding better customization, improved voice commands and more features including Pandora. Additionally, new door panels, seat and center console complete the LaCrosse's interior redesign.

Updated Buick LaCrosse, Regal to debut at New York Auto Show

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 15:30:00 EST

Judging by the spy shots we saw last week for the 2014 Buick LaCrosse and 2014 Buick Regal, we knew it wouldn't be much longer until we saw both sedans receive a grand debut. Today, Buick confirmed to Autoblog both cars will be introduced at the New York Auto Show next month, but no further information has yet been released about either model.
Having been on the market for an extra couple years, the changes to the LaCrosse appear to be more significant than those coming for the Regal, but both will be getting refreshed exterior designs as well as updated interiors. The Regal's new face brings it more in line with the all-new Encore and the restyled Enclave, while the LaCrosse should get a more distinctive, upscale appearance.
Both cars will be introduced exactly a month from today, and we'll be there to bring you all the coverage.
