FORGOTTEN 1963 Buick LeSabre - WILL IT DRIVE 100 Miles Home? (P2)

Makina dhe automjete

Part 2 of 5: Buick 1 Derek 0. The last time I showed up to work on this Buick, I struck out. This time, I'm not taking no for an answer! One way or another I'm going to try to drive this car home 100 miles after it's been off the road for 23 years! Turns out, these starters are not easy to find or fix. Something maybe fire and a large hammer will fix? Also, let's ignore the windshield. You don't need'em. Let's see how this goes - HANG ON!

    Funny story, I bought a ‘49 Hudson Super Six Brougham Coupe and when I trailered it home I noticed the driverside fender was loose. Here I come to find out it had 1 bolt holding it on, and when I pulled the front tire off to see what I was working with... low and behold no nut just an old rusted vise grip holding things together! Well the car is on the road thanks to all the spare time I’ve had this past year, so now I need to restore the vice grip and keep it in the trunk for good luck!

    You do exactly like I used to do with my '76 Torino sedan, cruising down a 65-70mph highway at 40-45, pulling over to the shoulder to let people by every now and then. Of course after I swapped in the '72 351C, had the FMX rebuilt, put in $500 of new exhaust, bought tires, and got everything else right, the wife and I decided to move 1100 miles and I had to leave her behind. The Torino, I mean, not the wife. Hoping someone in or around Wichita Falls still has her. I'm in Lawton now so not too far out if it pops up for sale anywhere. Definitely need to get a new yard ornament to work on someday. This Derek guy gets it. Cars will run. They'll drive. They just need a little motivation. Or a little Tonya Harding. Or a lot.

    In 1973 I was in College at UW living in the married student housing. I had a 64 Dodge Dart and the starter went out. I had to go to Casper Wyoming on the weekend to do a little roughnecking in the oilfield so we could eat for the next month. I pulled it out and took it down and got it rewound, brought it back and put it in. No lift. The wind was blowing snow at about 35 MPH across the parking lot in Laramie, elevation 7200'. January. That day I swore I would at some point in my life buy a car and drive it 100,000 miles and not know what color the engine was painted. Didn't work out yet.

    I've always wondered, Why did Buick, Pontiac and others build these big block, large displacement engines and then equip them with a 2 barrel carb instead of a 4 bbl? There couldn't have been much, if anything, to gain as far as mpg.

    Listening you talking about the rear end, I couldn't help but remember the CW McCall song "Classified" - "Her shaft is bent and her rear end leaks, you can fix her quick with an oily rag. Use a nail as a starter; I lost the key. Don't pay no mind to that whirrin' sound. She use a little oil, but outside a' that, she's cherry."
