1996 Century project!

Hello. My name is Daniel, and this is my [b]1996 Buick Century Special wagon[/b], named Kaiser George IX. I’ve done lots of things to it over the three years I’ve owned the car, and thought someone here might enjoy seeing things done to a largely forgotten and unloved Buick. So I’ll start at the beginning. If you wish, you may click on any image to enlarge it.

February 28, 2013, I brought the car home, and immediately put it to work, assisting in moving from a small apartment to, for the first time in my children’s lives, a house, with four bedrooms, a back yard, and a two car garage. Here is George with some new dressers.

Five days later, the thermostat stuck closed and blew the upper radiator hose, which, in turn, popped the head gaskets.

Five injured in Arundel crash

Five people were taken to the hospital Monday night after a two-vehicle crash outside the Eagles club on Route 1, and the driver of one of the vehicles was charged with driving drunk.

William King Jr., chief deputy for the York County Sheriff’s Office, said in a news release Monday night that Lisa Desmond, 49, of Kennebunk, drove from the Eagles club parking lot in her 1992 Cadillac Deville into the path of a northbound 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan around 6 p.m.

Artist imagines eerie world where cars have no wheels

The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we’d be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we’d have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.

That’s the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.

Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you’ll

Junkyard Gem: 1969 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Luxury Sedan

The 1965-1970 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight shared its platform with the high-zoot Cadillac DeVille and Buick Electra and lived at the very pinnacle of the Oldmobile Division pyramid. This ’69 Luxury Sedan nearly made it to age 50, but now sits in its final parking lot: a Northern California self-service wrecking yard.

It’s quite rough, though not rusty, and the presence of all the window regulators in the trunk suggests that its final owner may have begun a restoration project.

Unfortunately, even a 1969 Cadillac sedan needs to be cleaner than this car to be worth restoring. Perhaps a two-door Ninety-Eight in this shape might have made the restoration cut, but not a sedan.

You can see some flashes of the opulence that

Junkyard Gem: 1972 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 4.5

The last big luxury car made by Mercedes-Benz prior to the use of the S-Class designation was the W108, built for the 1965 through 1973 model years. These were serious machines, built to staggeringly high quality standards and priced accordingly; the 280SE 4.5 was one of the top high-roller sedans of 1972. Here’s one that lasted for 45 years before ending up in a Phoenix self-service wrecking yard.

There’s not a trace of rust on this car, and the interior looks like it’s about five years old. Why, then, is this car facing the cold steel jaws of the crusher?

Here’s why: a value-destroying engine fire. The flames didn’t spread much outside the engine compartment, but the cost of fixing this damage would be
