I own a restoration shop and this is a car I am selling for a customer.  It is a 1965 Buick Skylark convertible with Grand Sport emblems.  He has owned it for about 20 years and all the modifications he has done over that time frame.  As seen by the black and gold plates, it has always been a California car so there are no rust issues.  The rockers, floors and trunk pan are very clean.  The body is real straight and shows very minor touch ups prior to this paint which is a real dark green.  There are two areas with scratches in the finish and these are shown in the close up photos.  One tire came apart and scratched the left outer wheel well.  On a scale of 1 to 10 I would say the paint and body are still a strong 8+ maybe a low 9.  The car is really nice and a little detailing and a good polish would help.  The engine is a 1970 Buick 455 with dual quads.  It runs great and plenty of performance.  The transmission is a Turbo 400.  The rear end is probably a 3.36 ratio.  He had the hood scoop installed to clear a larger air filter.  A stock hood is included if you want it.  The wheels are 15 inch where the stock were 14's.  Super nice driver at highway speeds or around town.  A couple of things it needs are the convertible top hydraulics either need new rams or the pump replaced. The rams are disconnected from the top so it could be lowered manually.  The shifter is the factory floor shift and because it was originally a two speed auto, you can not drop the trans to the low range. These are things I can fix for you if you wish without too much cost.  Overall a real tight daily driver that runs well, drives well and shows well.  If you need more photos or have any questions, please call Bruce weekdays at 916-652-6852 or use the "Ask the Seller a Question" feature in this ad.  To see and drive the car, I am about 15 miles east of Sacramento just off Highway 80 going towards Reno.  Thank you.

GM recalls 51k Enclave, Traverse, Acadia crossovers over fuel gauge inaccuracy

Mon, 05 May 2014 09:30:00 EST

With all eyes fixed on General Motors in the wake of the ignition recall debacle, the auto giant has been carefully calling in a wide array of vehicles to fix anything and everything that could prove problematic. Just the other day it issued two separate recalls - one concerning the Cadillac SRX and another its heavy-duty pickups - and now it is issuing another.
This time the vehicles in question are the Buick Enclave, Chevy Traverse and GMC Acadia, three fullsize crossovers based on GM's Lambda platform. In an estimated 51,640 units manufactured between March 26 and August 15, 2013, the engine control module has been found to incorrectly display the level of fuel in the tank.
As a result, owners are being notified to bring their vehicles in to their local dealers to have the ECU reflashed to fix the problem. View the full details in the announcement below from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

2015 Buick Verano gets styling tweak, loses 6-speed manual

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 11:25:00 EST

Well, all good things must come to an end. For 2015, the Buick Verano's experiment with a manual transmission will cease, as the American manufacturer has announced it will discontinue the 6MT in the turbocharged version of its compact sedan. According to Buick, the take rate on the Verano Turbo 6MT was (unsurprisingly) low, leading to its discontinuation.
That's not the only bit of news for the Verano, though. After a few years on the market, Buick has seen fit to refresh the popular sedan. The visual changes aren't huge, really, with subtle tweaks to the headlights and taillights. We'd bargain that the average passer-by wouldn't notice a difference between the two.
The main aesthetic change is a new appearance package, available on the mid-range Convenience and Leather option groups. Unimaginatively called just that - Appearance Package - it offers up a new paint color, Desert Dusk Metallic, as well as a grille treatment and a rear spoiler. The new package is, however, limited to naturally aspirated models.

Next Buick Regal coming in 2017, could be imported from Germany

Sun, 03 Aug 2014 11:03:00 EST

The Buick Regal is based on the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia, a pair of sedans from General Motors' European and British outfits. In fact, over 46,000 Regals from model years 2010 and 2011 were screwed together on the same lines as the Insignia twins, before GM's Oshawa, Ontario factory took over production fully. Considering this closeness, rumors that claim the next-generation Regal - due for 2017 - could move back to Europe aren't terribly surprising. Here's why, according to Automotive News.
Oshawa is home to three other vehicles, aside from the Regal - the Chevrolet Camaro, Impala rental queen and the Cadillac XTS. We already know next-gen Camaro production is headed to Lansing, MI, and that the fleet-only Impala will (finally!) die in 2016. As for the XTS, as AN explains it, sales are so slow that GM will either kill it or just shuffle its production volume elsewhere.
Taken along with the fact that Unifor, the Canadian labor union repping workers at the Oshawa factory, claim GM hasn't made any guarantees about future production at the nearly 60-year-old factory, it seems fairly clear that the Regal's current factory is going to be put out to pasture.
