  5. First show of 2021. At the Deering Estate in Palmetto Bay , Fl. Due to COVID-19, space was limited to 23 cars.
  6. Hello Mr. Earl!  Long time since I dropped in to say hello. Is Rosie still resting in the Buick Garden?

      Hey Kelly, no ol Rosie has been gone from the Gardens a couple years now, a young guy and his dad ended up with her. I've sold several of my '54s, only have the 3 speed Century and a 2 dr Roadmaster and will probably be selling it soon. Getting old sux. Speaking of...how is your dad and MaryJane?

      Glad to hear Rosie found a home. Do they post here on the forum? Would love to see pictures of her and talk about some things with them.

       

      My dad and Mary Jane are doing fine, his girlfriend is not a "car" person so he doesn't get Mary Jane out as much as he used to. She has him playing a lot of golf again which is really a good thing as it keeps him moving. I have always thought you selling my dad Mary Jane probably saved his life. He was starting to become a really old man, didn't play golf because of the aches and pains and sat around all day. Then he started crawling around Mary Jane every day and that gave him something to do every day. Then when Sharon passed unexpectedly he had Mary Jane and he drove her everywhere and that became his life until he got together with Marylin. Yea, he doesn't hang out with the car folks, but he is more active which keeps him from sitting in a chair all day and just fading away. So its a fair trade.  One of these days I will get back into a 54 Buick, I sure as heck had a lot of fun with Rosie and wish I had the space to get back into it again.

      Wow Kelly, I never knew Mary Jane had such a positive impact on your dad, that she was such a blessing in a sense. Thank you for sharing that. BTW how old is your dad now. I'm 70 going on 98 it feels like LOL. Would love to see you with another '54, the work you (and your dad) did on Rosie was awesome.

  7. All I'm seeing are the newer posted ones, all the old albums don't show. Also when I go to post a new photo it asks if I want to use an existing album and if I select yes I can see all my old albums but that is the only place I can find them so thankfully they are still here....somewhere.... Can you look in to this for us @El Diablo
  8. Looking great Doug! Haven't forgotten about the hood latch clip, coming....
  9. Are you sure it's not just the cable? I've had two repaired here but many years ago. https://www.bobsspeedometer.com/1/120/index.asp

  13. hi Al soon i will be back here on the highway and i will share the whole story its almost 4 years now so its time I'l be back
  14. Roadmaster convertible that I was restoring is almost finished, but in 2020 nothing was really done to it, as I was waiting for upholstery materials from SMS Auto Fabrics that I have ordered in September 2019! Yes, 1,5 year of waiting and I still haven't received everything that I have ordered. I haven't received carpet material and here is my question. I ordered that carpet material from SMS as I was not able to find dedicated carpet from any vendor for '54 Roadmaster convertible. But ACC makes such carpet for Roadmaster 2dr hardtop. Any idea if it will fit into convertible? I assume the main
  15. Have you seen this? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1954-1955-1956-BUICK-SUPER-EMBLEM-EMBLEMS-54-55-56/163959650983?hash=item262cc1baa7:g:G20AAOSwwMxd2ucR
  16. Its a 56 4 door hardtop super.i have had a 54 and 55 super 2 door and vent windows look the same.passenger main window regulator is missing.thanks for the reply.
  17. Best to be more specific - I have this car, so what else fits? Hardtop or sedan? Two or four doors? There should be some interchange, but the devil is in the details.
  18. Hi does anyone have any information on which manual window regulators interchange between years? This is for large body .I know this is mostly 54 buicks but do the 55 and 56 interchange? Any help appreciated.
  19. Some progress to report. I'll just say that my cars have been happy with COVID... I took a break from body work, and put the engine bay back together, and hope to have the Nailhead running again soon, and the car running around the parking lot for a bit of exercise. It's been very gratifying to put painted and zinc'd parts back together again. You might note a lot of AC stuff going on in here...
  20. I'm having trouble finding a speedometer repair shop in southern Oregon for my 54 special. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Inspector P.
  21. Good for you @Uncle Richie I'm close behind you at 70.
