For Sale/Trade/Want To Buy / Vega wagon for sale
« Last post by wmsonta on October 16 2018, 10:11:37 PM »
If this is the wrong thing to do, somebody tell me. I found cars for sale here, Buicks. Imagine that.

My GN listing has expired, I will own it until at least next spring.

Do you intend to 'restore' the interior? The Buick muscle cars had the most impressive interiors, as I remember.

From my travels around this website, it is possible, it will automatically resize attachments. Pictures for instance.

The average age of my cars is 38 yrs old. I have had a 78 Monza on stands for over a month awaiting parts.

Good luck with your project. GSX was a nice car.

making a GSX clone,
 just finished  front  end/susp, all tubular A arms, disc brakes, pwr brks.


sent the interior out  to be magically transformed into  something nice,


looking at wheels,
thinking 18 in ridlers,  5 spoke,


oh, just found out I'm 1/1000  indian, so where do I sign up for  "indian casino" money?

General Buick Tech / Re: starter does not turn over
« Last post by Scoobum on October 15 2018, 07:58:51 PM »
hi all


Battery died a week ago... so I took it out to charge.  anyways, I put it back in the car tonite and no start.  The starter does not turn over.  I even tried to jumping the battery with my truck but nothing.


I don't have manuals.  Is there a starter fuse or main fuse?  Is there anything that would cause the start turn over or start.  I never had any problems with the starter. I've been driving the car all summer.  I don't know if I might have done something when I pulled & put the battery back in the car


I did one more experiment since its dark out.  I turned on the car lights on, and tried to start the car.  The headlights dims very very slightly.  Don't know if there some power going to the start.


any other suggestions or recommendation ... before I start crawling under my car this weekend


thanks in advance.

Where the fuck have you been you parts whore...and please tell me your not still driving around with no brakes.

I wouldn’t spend much time worrying about it. I doubt it’ll be something that you’ll ever need to use.

If I was doing registry scans and finding malicious code, I’d be making some changes.

The stuff my kids and wife will click on is unending.

Yah, every PC is unique and can be identified without cookies.

Yeah, it's called a 'machine name'. It is communicated PC to PC, not through a browser. This can not be stopped if you want to go online. Your ISP logs these automatically. You can use Shields Up to find your identifier. Your IP addy changes all the time. Not the identifier.


Online, I have the ability to change my IP address and country of origin, everything a website sees/requires. Not at my ISP's server.

thanks guys, I am out.

Itís the same everywhere. Always some vendor making your day longer than it should be. Then there are the employees that somehow manage to fuck up every they touch, yet are never held accountable.

Iím more of a network security guy,

Yeah, my brother does that. He got a Masters in computer science in the '90's. At one time, he headed a work group for the Navy/Marines testing weapon systems. For yrs now, he has been the top IT guy for the largest county in Ks. I do not charge. Never have.

I am fast approaching the conclusion, although Orwellian in nature it is inescapable. If you want to go online.

Net Neutrality was never law, but was entirely about regulating T-1 servers. Possibly, where this started. The timing has to be close.

I have spent the time this morning, to test my firewall and it answered a ping. The most common 1000+ ports did not respond. After stopping my firewall and a retry, my ISP has not closed any of my ports. Something they routinely do. All modern firewalls are 'adaptive', so no alternatives now exist.

thanx for the response, people-it is the new reality, like it or not. I may try a bare bones Linux distro  from behind a partition, we will see.
