In my lifetime I have totaled 9 cars only a couple due to my driving skills nonetheless I believe in a higher power

In Germany I was T boned by a VW they put this wreck at base entrance for all to see.

Prior to going into the Air Force I had a 1957 Ford Fairlane with a police 427 interceptor engine my car to pimp in 1965

Diesel Toronado was a nightmare

Once I got behind the 1995 Riviera I knew I found my car for life. I now have 4BMW  1976 2002  demolished  Burgun10

For the last 10 years I've been wanting to have 3 cars. My white -'99, a Silver Arrow as display garage pieces and an everyday car.

Had a Silver Arrow #60 more issues with this car than any of my others? I often wonder if the workers knowing they were being laid off were not as professional as normal.

Dang, really? Never seen a SA. So you say issues with that car? I don't even have a garage, keep mime in the driveway, wrapped up in a triple car cover.

Probably not a worker problem per se. If I knew what your problems were I could probably comment better.

For example, it was important on the 4T65E transmission to do the first fluid and filter change according to the 'severe' schedule just to get manufacturing crud out of the transmission and valve body. It was also important to change over to Dexron VI from Dexron III once GM quit policing the Dexron III standard, that was a few years ago. If you read the transmission boards (such as https://www.facebook.com/GM3800Transmissions) you can see more about general issues with and tips for maintaining the transmissions (much of which is actually useful). Now if you do a Dex III change you can kind of expect viscosity issues (pain in the butt not fatal flaws) the first 5-7 thou miles. The other thing with the transmission is that for a fluid change a flush is the way to go BUT the flusher needs to know the quirks of this transmission and if not then they will (not might, will) mess it up on the flush. Highlights of that are (1) NO additives with Dex 6 (2) either use 2 filter kits or have a spare filter that's just used for flushes (3) keep 20-25 qts of Dex 6 that is just used to flush transmission; (4) to flush: my understanding it you drop pan, pull the old filter, put in the change filter, top off with flush fluid, disconnect outlet from the radiator, run flush sequence, drop pan again, replace filter AGAIN to new service filter, run fluid exchange sequence. Basically what happens is the crud that the flush loosens gets trapped in the change filter and if there is any residue afterward it's not enough to make a difference in the new service filter.

Another example, brakes. When replacing the rear brakes not only do you have to screw in the pucks on the rear but if you don't then you must replace the calipers. Spreading them with a pad spreader or a C Clamp more than the minimum required to pivot the caliper off the rotor results in minor damage to the rear caliper self-adjuster and/or slide pins and it will *never* work right again. Also with the rear brakes, some problems arise because the parking brake mechanism needs serviced, or cables replaced, to eliminate dragging.

Point is that like many cars, there are some issues that would come up on this car that if you're not initiated will be pretty frustrating.

Are those stock center caps on those chrome wheels or the aftermarket replacements available on eBay?
