This 1962 Buick Skylark has a very straight body, and all the glass and crome is very good. It has surface rust in side do to the wet wether we have here in the Seattle area. It was left parked outside with a side window down before I got it.

I listed it last december on an ebay auction, but bids were not high enough so I decided to keep it.

Now unfortionally I want to sell it. I have spent more time and money on it, but for the good.

I bought a very good red interior for it. (orig. from a 62, so it is old, but pretty good) I also bought brand new red carpet, and had the door panels repaired with red carpet.

I started repainting the interior red, but only got one door done. So sad to say, the painting needs to be done on the interior. Big job, and  I lots interest and don't have the time to finish. So I'm calling uncle before I get too deep into it.

There are no holes in the floor boards. I rust proofed the interior bottem with pro 15. To stop and seal the serface rust. Overall it looks great and makes a nice finish.

There is some rust in the body, but not allot. The paint is daul, and will need repainting of course.

The motor starts and runs very good. The sell also includes a rebuild 2 speed transmission. The one that is in it works great in forward, but slips in reverse.

 

Overall, feel it is a great car to restore and would make a very nice daily driver while you restore it.

GM issues four new recalls, 2.4 million cars affected

Tue, 20 May 2014 11:54:00 EST

General Motors has announced another set of recalls, covering some 2.42 million cars in the United States. For those keeping track, The General has now recalled over 15 million cars worldwide this year due to various issues.
Here's the breakdown for this most recent set of recalls:

KBB 2013 Brand Image Awards has some obvious and oddball winners

Sat, 30 Mar 2013 08:58:00 EST

The sixth edition of the Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards have crowned a wide range of winners - in a couple of cases the recipient of the laurels might say more about KBB users than they do about the actual winner. Compiled from the responses of more than 12,000 shoppers on KBB.com over the past year, there are 13 categories broken into non-luxury, luxury and truck segments "representing the combined wisdom of the American car-buying public."
The award categories have been revamped this year, with some dropping off, some new ones appearing and at least one other given a new term. What isn't surprising is that Honda won Most Trusted Brand for the second year running, Best Value Brand for the third year in a row and took Best Overall Brand, which wasn't on last year's list of awards.
On our own shores, in the non-luxury categories Chrysler got Most Refined Brand and Buick took Best Value Luxury Brand. Neither one of those marques won anything in last year's Brand Image Awards, while Cadillac, which won Best Interior Design Brand and Best Comfort Brand last year - those awards disappeared this year - went home without a single accolade.

The importance of Angel Eyes, Ventiports and four round taillights

Sun, 01 Sep 2013 13:00:00 EST

Just the other day, we told you about how Lincoln isn't really a luxury brand, according to Ford's head design man, J Mays. His argument was that Lincoln lacked the unique DNA to differentiate it from the rest of the market, although the arrival of the MKZ is beginning to change that. Now, we have this video from Autoline Detroit, where Jim Hall, an analyst for 2953 Analytics who was quoted in yesterday's Lincoln story, explains the influence of certain styling cues and how they impact the brands.
Using BMW (Angel Eyes) and Buick (Ventiports) as examples for small, simple touches that serve to distinguish the brand's vehicles on the road, Hall then points out how changing trademark styling features, as Chevrolet has done on the new Corvette Stingray, can hurt the vehicle's public perception. Take a look at the full video below for an interesting dive into what these styling features mean to their individual brands.
