After hanging around this site for a few weeks, it's time to introduce myself. I'm Jim, and I may well be the oldest man here. To give you an idea, the Riv is my 3rd Buick...and I sold the last one 51 years ago. Bought this one 2 months ago and drove it about 5 miles to a shop I trust to put it in top shape.
I feel really lucky to have found this site, as I have a lot to learn--and everything seems to be here. I'm an old shade tree mechanic, but this time I'm out of my depth. shocked

Aaron: Thanks for the warm welcome. Hope you'll feel the same way a year from now. No, I can't beat 75; I'm 73. But I'll get there sooner than I'd like (time really does fly at this age), and I sincerely hope that by then I'll still be a "junior" member.

James: Thanks. Looking forward to reading more about your '64. I had a car that color once. Didn't particularly like it. I assume you plan to change the color eventually.

Klix: Thanks. Yup, this is the place alright. I'd hate to go it alone.

Mark: Re: Dynaflow. I remember the ones you are thinking about. Mine was a "new, improved" model in a '53 Special with the V8 (that was the one year Buick used both straight and V8s. The Dynaflow locked up well enough to leave a considerable amount of rubber on the street.

Welcome, you'll learn that the '95 is the oddball year but I prefer the M62 supercharger's sound to the M90's any day!

Yes, as long as you manually select Low... wink

As far as '95 being the bastard child, Ilan is right, but if you aren't planning to modify it it'll be just fine... and if you're used to macadam-melting torque, it's probably your best choice. lmao

Thanks. Point of my selection was that it was initially cheap, so I could put my money into getting everything fixed up right. What I cared about most was the styling. happy

Mark, of course I manually selected Low. That's the fun gear!
