    • I have for sale a very cool 1970 Buick Riviera.  These aren't seen very often any more.  This one has a good running 455 V-8 and has an automatic transmission that shifts well.  The car is long and low and rides good.  The car has 54,973 miles on it.  The paint on the car is called Sunset Sage.  Kinda like a purple with a little copper in it.  Has power brakes and power steering that are both working well.  The following all work:  all 4 power windows, horn, all lights, wipers, remote in glove box, tilt wheel, power seat, speed alert arrow and buzzer, speedometer, fuel guage, heater and defroster, glove box light, interior domes, temp. and brake warning lights, all turn signals and their dash indicators, quarterpanel turning lights, brake lights.
    • The factory A/C does work and blows cold.  These items don't work:  radio, driver's remote mirror, passenger's door window switch.  All of the other individual window switches are currently working. 
    • The body on this 1970 Riviera is really prety decent.  There are small spots of rust through just above each rear wheel as seen in the photos.  The paint is faded in a few spots, especially on the roof.  The undercarriage is very solid and I have found only some surface rust.  Trunk floor is solid as well with light surface rust present.  Cabin floors look ok from underneath and seem very solid when you stamp your heel on the inside. 
    • The interior is decent as well with the worst being the very evident heavy wear on the front seat.  Rear seat is good.  Headliner is good.  Dash is real decent.  Door panels are good as well with some armrest cracking.  Guages work and are clear and easily readable.
    • The 455 V-8 runs well and the trans shifts good.  The driver's side exhaust manifold has a leak and makes noise but not too bad.  It gets quieter when the engine is warned up.  A section of exhaust pipe will need to be added to the driver's side tailpipe rearward of the rear axel area.  Maybe even the whole driver's side pipe.  The other side is old but sounds ok.  The chrome on the car is not perfect but decent driver quality.  Glass is good.
    • This 1970 Riviera is fun to drive and a 455 has good power.  The interior is comfortable.  This was pretty much a 1-year body-style so its unique. 
    • Please feel free to ask any questions.  Personal inspection is encouraged.  As-is, no warranty.

eBay Find of the Day: 1981 DeLorean with 570-hp twin-turbo Buick V6 [w/videos]

Mon, 23 Dec 2013 17:29:00 EST

"Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?" So asked one Marty McFly of his mentor Dr. Emmett Brown, who replied: "The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?"
Doc Brown was right, of course: with an exotic mid-engine layout, gullwing doors and stainless steel body, the DeLorean DMC-12 sure looked the part. It just needed a little more juice. Well this one might not have 1.21 gigawatts of time-bending power - that'd be more than one and a half million horsepower - but it does have more than the 150 hp in the the standard 2.8-liter V6.
That's because this particular DeLorean has had its stock Peugeot Renault Volvo engine swapped out for a Buick-sourced, all-aluminum, 4.3-liter V6 from the Grand National. Dutteiller Performance didn't leave the engine in stock form, either: while they were swapping it out, they added a pair of turbochargers, new pistons, crank, cams and much, much more.

J.D. Power customer survey of dealers counts Cadillac, Buick as big winners

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 17:35:00 EST

Cadillac and Buick have taken the trophies in J.D. Power's latest Customer Service Index Study examining satisfaction with dealer service. Surveying more than 90,000 owners and lessees of 2009-2013 model-year cars, the study found that those with pre-paid maintenance packages were ten percent more likely to buy their next car from the same brand.
Dealer satisfaction scores have improved overall, Cadillac nabbed the luxury segment ahead of Audi and Lexus, taking the crown that Lexus held last year. Buick keeps the mass-market dealer satisfaction win in the family, finishing ahead of Volkswagen and last year's winner GMC. The study also found that service department use of tablets increased customer satisfaction, as did "best practices" like "providing helpful advice." Who knew?
You can find details on those and more findings in the press release below.
