Hey

My name is Kenneth Gund and I live in Edmonton.

I asked that this Alberta Canada Region be created so that I could promote and help the Buick Community.

I spend a lot of time in Nanaimo as I have family there.

That was my White T. I bought it and then sold it when I bought "Bluw".

Zimmerman stroker motor,

9 sec T type

Hello all. From Calgary and was in EDM for awhile. Are there any GN people in Calgary? Need help finding a shop that knows how to work on the turbo Buicks? Any insight from anyone would be helpful. Thank you.

Hey guys Sherwood Park here,

Just bought an 84 that I want to get ready for Rockin August..don't know a ton about the car..previous owner said it was basically a barn find..the people he bought it from said the car sat for about 9-10 years as the guy who had it had died. Runs ok..getting a new fuel filter in tomorrow..put a new air filter in and it runs a bit better...any advice on shocks and springs?

Hey

All of my Buick's are 86 or 87. I have never owned a hot air car but will help with what I can.

So,

I went and bought some parts fo the car...

UMI Performance suspension kit, including bigger front and rear sway bars and upper and lower control arms as well as shocks and springs.

Kirban Performace for frame strengthening bits, and a few pieces to make her look a bit more pretty.

Highway Stars for their upolstry kit for my Lear-Siegler seats..

Should be a fun spring!

There is an upholstery kit for Lear Seigler seats now?? Is it stock colours or is it the 86 - 87 style? I will have to check this out.

Thanks,
