Keep in mind, any emails for orders received through our website will be taken care of when we are back in the office.



NO INNER CIRCLE EMAIL NEXT WEEK -

We will not be doing an Inner Circle email next week between Christmas and New Years. We will start up again on January 6th, 2016.



WISHING ALL OUR READERS A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR -

From our staff, Carrie, Christina, John, Eileen, and myself, we hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

May you all enjoy a less stressful life and, as my Dad often would say, remember your Health is your Wealth!

We hope we have helped you maintain your pride and joy. We will continue to work to bring you more new products in 2016.

PHOTO 1 - We show two of our Christmas cartoons from years past that cartoonist Fred Boatman did for us.



MAGNA END OF THE YEAR BANQUET -

We attended the Magna Club end-of-the-year banquet this past Saturday night. They probably had 30 people in attendance at Georgines. The food was plentiful and excellent.

Several of our customers brought cores for us to take back.

We did a special M&Ms contest. In addition to getting the M&Ms container, the winner also received a unique hand-crafted Christmas Grand National snow globe that my wife Eileen made.

PHOTO 2 - The photo on the left shows the unique Christmas display Eileen made, which featured a Grand National diecast car with a Christmas tree strapped on the roof inside a glass jar. The tag reads, “WISHING YOU A “BAD TO THE BONE” CHRISTMAS.” Special thanks to Paul Castle for providing the hot wheels Grand Nationals. The photo on the right shows Tara Krueger who had the winning guess. She won the jar of M&Ms and the unique Christmas display. Her guess was 601 and the actual count was 623. Her husband Don and their two children are also pictured. Tara owns a 1987 Grand National, and they hail from New Jersey



IT SEEMS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY -

It seems like only yesterday that our granddaughter was so young. We got two of the motorized Barbie Lamborghinis kiddie cars for her through John Mulligan, one of our California customers years ago.

This past week Darrell and Carrie surprised her with a 2012 Camaro SS/RS convertible, a combination Christmas gift and birthday gift as she turns 17 in about a week.

The mother of a good friend of theirs passed away and had only driven the car a mere 3,000 miles since she bought it brand new. They were able to get a very good deal on the car.

Of course, then Darrell did a few custom touches to the Camaro (Kirbanized it) before they surprised her with the car.

PHOTO 3 - Shows Darrell, Carrie and Devyn after they told her the car was hers. She was completely surprised. The second photo shows the endearing license plate frame that I had custom made for her. It started when she was young and I would always call her “Twit” as a pet name.

I already told her she better maintain her 4.0+ average. I reminded her of what happen when I was 16 and bought a brand new car… my grade dropped from a mid-C average to failing inside of two months! Devyn is much more serious about her schoolwork than I ever was.



REPRODUCTION POWER ANTENNAS -

We just got in the custom one-piece bracket that Darrell designed, so the new reproduction power antenna will bolt onto the fender of the 1984-1987 Turbo Regals.

We have a limited supply of them now in stock. See the New Products listing for more details.

PHOTO 4 - The photo on the left shows just the custom-made bracket and the reproduction power antenna. There are 3 holes where it attaches to the inner fender, which lets you do any minor adjustments you may have to make. The bracket is aluminum, so it can easily be bent if needed. The photo on the right shows the bracket position on the antenna.



NEW PRODUCT IN THE WORKS -

We are very close to making a deal with a U.S. based company on a product that will fit every year Turbo Regal. It is made in the U.S.A. and is fully licensed by GM.

This company is one of a very few or may be the only one that is licensed by GM for these items.

This company is granting our company an exclusive for the market among vendors and suppliers. We, in turn, will be offering it to all our current vendors and suppliers. They will be able to offer it to their customers as well.
s
It’s kind of strange how this came about. I actually ordered one and told the sales person I would be interested in being a distributor. It did not seem likely. He mentioned my name to the company owner and, as it turns out, the owner of the company actually bought GTO parts from us over 20-plus years ago. He then called me back to find out what I was interested in. The segment of his business that would interest our market is extremely small to them, compared to their other business ventures.

In the meantime, they are making me various samples so I can check them against the originals. To my knowledge, no other company has done this yet that has the GM license behind it. That is the key to the entire project.

We are very excited about this new project, since there is a demand for it, especially since it will also fit all the other G-body cars as well. We expect to have all the details worked out in the next few weeks.



CAUGHT THIS AD IN OUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER -

I caught this ad in our local paper last week “LOST: FALSE TEETH Full lower plate. Name is inscribed on them. Possibly in Union National Bank parking lot...”

You would think the owner would have missed them rather quickly!



INTERESTING CAR FOR SALE -

One of our customers has an interesting car for sale - 1986 Shelby Dodge Omni Glhs. See the below information for more details.

NEW PRODUCTS FROM US -

1978-1987 GM Cars and Trucks (Including Buick Regal) -
ORIGINAL GM USED LIGHTED REARVIEW MIRROR WITH LED LIGHTS

This used original GM lighted rearview mirror fits all GM cars and trucks from the late 1970s through the early 1990s.

Mirror looks almost like the original mirror found in a 1984-1987 Turbo Regal.

Although the mirror is used, each one is cleaned and tested, then fitted with 2 new LED bulbs (a $20 value.) The original tube style bulbs are also included.

The LEDs lights shine a whiter brighter light, do not draw as many amps, and do not get hot like original bulbs.

Ideal if you have a T-Tops car.

It is easy to install with a simple 2-wire hook up - 1 wire is ground and the other wire is for power.

Supplies may be limited. GM made about six different styles of lighted rearview mirrors, so sometimes we are limited as to how many we can locate that match the original stock mirror style.

NOTE - You may also be interested in this related part - #7707 Used Factory Original Rearview Mirror.

An excellent replacement item for any interior restoration.

OEM “FRONT” BUMPER IMPACT CUSHION & THREAD CUTTING NUTS (25) PACK

This is an OEM front bumper impact cushion. This is the first part of the bumper to get hit in any minor accident. You simply remove the bumper to replace this rubber strip. This is 100% identical to the original one.

NOTE - This front bumper impact cushion is black, which is correct for all Grand Nationals and GNX models and is exactly like the original.

For other Turbo models you may want to add the painted strip in the indention to be original.

Each comes with a pack of 25 thread cutting nuts. These are the unique nuts needed to secure the impact cushion to the metal bumper. We also offer this pack of nuts separately, Part #7451.

Our photo shows this front impact cushion at the top. We’ve noted the placement on the front bumper with a red arrow in the middle photo. The inset photo shows the 25 thread cutting nuts, which comes with it.

NOTE - We also offer the Reproduction REAR Bumper Impact Cushion, Part #7450.

Another great exterior restoration item.

1984-1987 G-Body (Including Buick Turbo Regal - except for GNX wheels) -
CORRECT LOOKING GRAY VALVE STEM CAPS (10) SET

More and more Turbo Regal owners are starting to restore their cars, since the values of original Turbo Regals is on the increase.

One visible small part is the unique style grey valve stem caps that were used on all the 1984-1987 Turbo Regals, except for the GNX.

These are the correct looking valve stem caps for the T wheels and the Grand National wheels. These are not correct for the GNX wheels.

If you have an original spare tire in your trunk, you can check that valve stem cap and the design will look identical to the caps pictured here.

These are the correct style. We did however had to paint them grey to match the original color.

Each car uses 4 valve stem caps for the wheels and 1 for the spare. Our set includes 10 caps, which gives you 2 full sets.

An excellent replacement item for any exterior restoration.

7700 - 1984-1987 G-Body (Including Buick Turbo Regal - except for GNX wheels) –

NOTE - ABOUT LINKS IN THE INNER CIRCLE -

We have heard from a couple people that have had problems with the links in our Inner Circle.

When we check the links, they work fine. However, if you are not able to be directed to the exact website page or internet site, you can "copy" and "paste" the link into the URL in your browser (such as Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, etc.) If it doesn't link in one browser, it may work in another.

Most people having problems are using Internet Explorer… If you are having issues with links, try another browser to see if it works.

You may need to "UPDATE" your browser to be use you are using the current version.

NOTE ABOUT PHOTOS ON THE WEBSITE -

We have heard from a couple people that have viewed the photos on the website. Because these have to be low-resolution photos to work on the Inner Circle segments on the website, any photos of text don't appear clear when enlarged. This is a problem when you are trying to see numbers, such as those on the VIN labels or pages from Options booklet. Also, because of photo reproduction and computer screen variations, the colors may not be true to the actual product or photo.

If you would like to have us email you any photo at the higher resolution for viewing, just email us and we will email them to you. Be sure to be specific on which pictures you want to see - Reference Inner Circle date and photo number 1, 2, 3 or 4 - denniskirban@yahoo.com



ABOUT OUR EMAILS -

Any inquiries concerning used parts, you must email me direct - denniskirban@yahoo.com - I will answer you. However, if I fail to answer you within 24 hours, please email us again. Since expanding into used parts, I get a lot of emails and sometimes I may forget your request or may not remember who requested the item.



IN CLOSING -

The mild weather continues in our area with temperatures expected to near 70 degrees on Christmas Eve.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.
