Wed Jul 25, 2018 12:34 pm by 81X11
I'm beyond excited to see the famous Swinkster 6spd wagon safely re-homed here in Texas. Have "known" this car for YEARS. The car will be making it's way to Round Rock soon for me to refurbish a bit. Last drove this 4-5 years ago and totally loved it. Looking forward to the project!!

Option package 1se ?
Tue Jul 17, 2018 11:22 am by Isurf
I am picking up a 96 rmw Saturday. I ran the compnine report, and most of it seems self explanatory. But there are two packages listed. One seems to be on most cars, the other is 1se, and a lot less popular. I'm just curious what it includes if anyone knows.

newbie has nice 1996 RMW- needs general guidance on repairs
Thu Jul 05, 2018 12:05 pm by shrimpNE
Dumb questions regarding the
Buick Roadmaster Wagon 1996
LT-1 motor.

1.) Spare Tire
I have the temp spare. I bought a set of
alloy wheels and put a new snow tire on one.
It will not fit in the tire well for use
as a full sized spare.

Has anyone been able to get a full sized tire
on a rim into the spare tire well ?
What tire size was it ?
225-70 / 15 or larger?

2.) "extra" vacuum lines under …

LT1 HD Cooling Fan Tensioner
Tue Jul 17, 2018 2:59 pm by Auld Sodger
This is not a new issue but its been awhile and I was wondering if there has been solution to the availability of the mechanical fan belt tensioner PN 10186118?

Can they be rebuilt?  If so, who offers this service?



PS  I am aware that a second electrical fan can be added but that is a relatively expensive fix (that includes procuring a used fan) for what used to be a $25-30

Vacation! How long since you've seen it last?
Mon May 07, 2018 10:14 am by 81X11
Finally watched the original Vacation with my kiddo Tuck last night. Only had to cover his head with the blanket for a couple of scenes. He'd of course seen Christmas Vacation about 100-times, but he'd never seen the original one. He loved it, and now understands a bit more about his Dad's weird love of woody wagons.

Wagonfest FL - 2019
Wed Jul 11, 2018 8:37 am by Sprocket
As the Spring Turkey run in Daytona is always the 4th weekend of March, that would make it March 22-24, 2019.
This is a conflict for me personally as the GMC motorhome national meet starts the same day in Tallahassee, FL (it is usually in the Midwest or Arizona so to have it this close I can't miss it).

What does that mean? Someone else needs to pick up the ball and run with it. The hotel …
