OK... TY for asking bout our Buick Wildcat, Eric!

My/our-family’s 1967 "Cat" is all orig, inc paint. 120,400 pampered, well mechanically maintained miles. Bought her in 98 at 71,321 miles... she does about 3,500 miles a year with wife and grand kids aboard (notice how some words relate to boating – lol). Occasionally I take the Cat to biz meetings. 430 cid / 360 hp / domed head motor with 2” dual exhaust pipes and mid range Flowmaster mufflers and crossover pressure equalizer V-pipe. 400 3spd trany. Pwr w/s/b/seat. Frigid AC. 148 mph factory rated. Still does 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 sec (not too shabby for a 45 year old, all orig, 4,500 +/- lb auto). Buried the needle a couple times and can leave a 75' + peel out any time! I have orig upholstery ready to soon install on front seat. Rest of interior is near cherry. Currently I'm looking into a 57 Cadillac... wife and I do like Classic Luxury Cars with strong motor, AC, and power everything!

Our Classic Cars

Art,
Your 67 is wonderfullllll. And I love the post 4 dr style/construction. I like also the more vertical windows. I had a 67 Pontiac that was very similar ... even the dashboard. I wonder how similar our engines are and also the transmissions.

This is Brown Bear. 73 Buick Centurion 4dr HT w 455 engine. She's all original except for mufflers and wheels. She's seen about 100K mi and I'm the 3rd owner. Had her for about 12 years. I tried to sell all my old cars (3) when we went to Ak but time ran out and I took Brown Bear w us. We drove her only on pavement (well 99% of the time) and she's not seemed to suffer from the Ak experience. She's a driver but probably only to the tune of about 5% of out road time. Brown Bear came from a era of wild styling including tail fins and much else but she is styled very tastefully I think. I approve of her style. She runs on regular fuel and gets way over 10 mpg .. probably 13 or 14.

Cruising Hollywood 1957


This one will take you back when you see all the cars of the pre 1960 era. Enjoy.


See how many you can recognize. Watch the Ford T Bird, green and white, nearly get T-Boned.






Note that the few pickups seen are actually work trucks


This is cool - especially when you consider there were no video cams 55 yrs ago.
