My baby is gone....
Mon Dec 31, 2018 7:25 pm by Sprocket
Bought it in 2008 with 90k. 92k on the clock now. I had been saving her while I drove the doors off of several other wagons...well over 10k into the build, she met her untimely demise today at the hands of someone younger than the car itself.

Rear ended while at a traffic light by a stupid idiot in a VW going 50+ and not knowing where the brakes were. Saw her at the last second and floored …

The $500 Rad Wagon
Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:11 am by CBurne7
Hi everyone,

I've been lurking and posting for awhile now while I look for a 94-96 Buick Roadmaster or Caprice wagon. My family had a white '92 5.7 woody Buick wagon growing up, loaded with the tan interior. Being a family of 7 we made alot of memories in it road-tripping to the beach, visiting distant relatives, and going camping. My wife and I (no kids yet) have been thinking about driving …

Mon Jan 14, 2019 1:25 pm by Sprocket
So I need a car cover for the wagon as I want to swap off the plate and need it 'hidden' from code enforcement while I deal with the ins company.

Antenna mast - partial action
Wed Jan 30, 2019 4:56 pm by CBurne7
Hey everyone,

My power antenna has never worked for me, so I ordered a new cable. I figured I could hear the motor run whenever I hit the radio knob, so it must’ve been a broken cable. Today in the midst of a polar vortex I pulled the OEM unit out, drilled out the rivers, and much to my surprise (not) the cable was broken. Cool, I thought. I replaced the cable, got the motor back under the …

Hood release cable
Tue Jan 29, 2019 8:15 am by Sprocket
On my son's 92, pulling the hood release won't open the hood. the cable is not broken.
I know they stretch out over time. He is in VA and its very cold and his battery died overnight so the car won't start and can't get the hood open.

So folks, how to get it open? I suggested that he grab the cable in the car with vice grips (how I got one to open once) but is there another way?????????

Exterior mirror help needed
Mon Jun 29, 2015 11:03 am by silverfox103
The up/down function on my driver door exterior mirror quit working.  I have an extra mirror, wrong color.  I would like to swap the "guts" to fix the problems.  I have done something similar, but it's been a while.  Anyone have any tips for taking the mirror apart.  It is a 91 to 94 style.  Not 100% sure, but I think the mirror part pops out, like a ball and socket.

I done messed up
Sat Jan 19, 2019 8:45 am by CBurne7
So a wheel bearing bearing, pinion bearing, a wheel seal, and the pinion seal went bad on my '95 Roadmaster. Additionally I could feel the rear diff giving up the ghost since it wasn't engaging every time during wheel spin. I figured I'd overhaul the rear end with new bearings, seals, axle shafts, Eaton Trutrac, and 3.73 gears, because hotrod. This is my DD, so I ordered up all the parts (you …
