This is a very clean all original car for it's age. I bought it as a project and have ran out of time and money to mess with it. It sat up for 12 years or so, I have (cleaned the gas tank, cleaned all the metal fuel lines, replaced all the rubber fuel lines, new fuel pump, new fuel filter at the carb, cleaned the carb, new starter, new belts, new positive battery cable, and new upper radiator hose.) the car runs and drives but needs a tune up and possibly the carb to be rebuilt, it works fine the 4 barrel just doesn't open as I think it should. The interior is in real good shape, has one cut in the headliner about 2" long above the drivers head, the carpet is worn under the drivers feet, the passenger front door panel's carpet is showing some where but not terrible. other than that te interior is fully intact. The body is in good shape for the age, few dents and dings here and there but nothing major, has one rust hole on drivers quarter panel behind the wheel about 6" long and 5" tall. the front passenger front fender has had some body work done it at some point in the past, I was going to just get another one. It is missing the front grill and the chrome trim on the passenger front fender but all other trim is in tact and on the car. The car did have AC and it is still all on the car just no belt, was going to be the last thing I did so I never messed with it.
"This is a project car" It will need work, it is sold as is where is, no warrantee, what you see is what you get. I try to describe it as best as possible, Will need to be towed but will drive onto a trailer, and can even drive around the block, I have personally drove it around for 2 hours on back roads after getting it running. does need a front end alignment. only have the one picture but will load more tomorrow after I take some more. Thank you for looking and happy bidding.

If you own an Apple iPhone or Android device, perhaps you've been tempted to jailbreak or root it. This process gives you access to the the software's code, and can be used to make minor or drastic changes to its operating system. CarKnow, a company in Boston, is working applying a similar concept to the automobile.

Translogic recently took a look inside CarKnow to see just how it can tweak the computers inside a car and what sort of things can be done. As our transportation tech sister site explains, CarKnow basically created a digital duplicate of their Buick Regal in the cloud, while harvesting data generated to create custom apps and infiltrate the deepest function of their test car.
And before you freak out about people maliciously taking over your car, CarKnow's founder, Josh Siegel, stresses that it isn't quite so easy as driving up alongside someone. Take a look at the full video below to see just what it's like to jailbreak a car.
When you think of daring concept cars or emotional design-student projects, Buick probably isn't the first brand that comes to mind. It's not for lack of concepts; when General Motors ran down 11 concept-car highlights from Buick's 110-year history, three of them are from the past 15 years, with other experiments in that same timeframe like the Black Hawk, Centieme and Cielo left unmentioned.

But the company still thinks about them even if we don't. It ran a contest for students at Detroit's College for Creative Studies to create a Buick for the year 2030 that would incorporate future materials and transportation needs, and nanotechnology.
Best exterior design went to Sam Kenny for his Neo Classical Buick, Justin Salmon took honors for innovative material use, like having exposed algae on the bodyshell to generate energy, and Namsuk Lee nabbed best overall concept and best interior for his Buick Vision Sedan. You can read more about the design challenge and winners in the press release, and hear students talk about what went into the work in the video below.
2010 Buick Enclave - Click above for high-res image gallery
The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.
