I think there's a wee bit of a rust and safety issue here. We tracked down some used lower control arms out of Arizona to keep this 1986 Buick lasabre on the road. #buick#lasabre #1986 #rust#steeringshop#mechanic
In 1986, Buick engineers wanted the new Riviera to stand out from all the other personal luxury cars of the time, so they introduced the Graphic Control Center. This was a green-phosphor CRT screen with a touch control overlay. This computer was highly advanced and replaced over 100 buttons with 6 hard control menu buttons plus the digital screens covering Climate, Vehicle Summary, Gages, Vehicle Options and Settings and Vehicle Status. This would later find its way into the 1988-1989 Buick Reatta. It was short lived and as such, vehicles with these systems are rare. @buickusa@officialacdelco#buick#buickriviera#buickreatta#graphiccontrolcenter#touchscreen#greenphosphor#crt#crttouchscreen
That's what paint looks like when garage kept and used only in the spring or summer to never see ice or snow since 91. I had this BEAUTIFUL 91 Buick Roadmaster LTD come by my shop today for a new set of tires and while it was there, I had a chance to talk with the owner, who's name I won't drop because I don't have his permission to reveal. However he claimed to own that brand new, an 87 Cadillac, and a few other classics. I damn near cried while gawking all over this thing 😂. This thing looked amazing in person AND, IT HAD A FUCKING TRAIN HORN!!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 #Classics#RespectIt#Buick#Tank#AllSteel FrameRailsLikeTrucks #Bulletproof#5pt7v8#Nostalgic
We have this beauty in the shop for a full respray. The tops of the panels have blisters in the acrylic paint, behind that is surface rust. We are stripping the tops back to bare metal and hifilling the whole body. We will then block the car down and paint it in 2pac. The budget isnt allowing ust to make the car dead straight, but it's pretty good to begin with. I've always loved the shape of these Rivieras.
