Greetings Turbo Regal Inner Circle Members 11-26-2014

HAPPY THANKSGIVING -

Because we are having snow, our office will be closed by noon today, and it will be closed tomorrow and Friday for Thanksgiving. Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday.

NOTE - UPS will not be delivering packages to some locations on Friday.



ASC HISTORY AND THE GNX PROJECT CONTINUED -

In last week’s Inner Circle (11-19-2014) we wrote about buying two ASC binders that contained various slides and filmstrips featuring the GNX. I had prints made of some of the slides. Most of the slides and filmstrips are duplicates. The two photos we had made from slides are shown in photos 1 and photo 2. I did check the GNX book and neither of these photos appear in the GNX hardbound book.

PHOTO 1 - Shows one of the ASC employees (possibly Rick Hunt) working on the upgraded GNX dash. You can see the factory analog dash on the table to the far right in the photo and two more GNX clusters behind the one he is holding. Note the ASC GNX T-shirt he is wearing. We have sold several of these original ASC shirts over the years.

PHOTO 2 - Shows two white collar employees examining the underside of a GNX conversion. Note the gas tank is silver and not painted. The GNX does not appear to yet have the suspension package installed. It looks like the fenders have been cut for the flares and you can see the cut out in the right front fender for the louver. It also appears that the employee in the background may be draining the transmission. Remember the GNX did receive a different valve body.

We may be offering the one AS binder and some of the slides and filmstrips for sale. If you own a GNX and are looking for a piece of history, this may be of interest. If you are interested, email me direct - denniskirban@yahoo.com

COMING NEXT WEEK MORE GNX PHOTOS.



1972 CUDA, 1968 CORVETTE, AND 1992 CORVETTE FOR SALE -

A friend of ours has a shop near us and has these three cars for sale. The Cuda and the 1992 Corvette are extremely nice examples. The Cuda is a number matching 340 with a 4-speed. The color on the Cuda was changed from blue to lime green. The 1992 Corvette has just 58,000 miles on it and is very close to show quality. It has always been garaged, which is evident if you see the car in person. The 1968 Corvette is a 350 automatic with fresh paint and new interior with 147,000 miles.

PHOTO 3 - The photo to the left shows all three cars for sale. The photo to the right shows a close up of the 340 Cuda. LAST MINUTE NOTE - This Cuda has been sold



HALLMARK KEEPSAKE CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENT -

As you may know, every year Hallmark comes out with a series of new Christmas tree ornaments.

Over the years, they have done several muscle cars, including the GTO 1969 Judge, the 1969 Hurst Olds among others. This year they have one featuring a yellow 1970 Buick GSX. The GTO Judge and the 1969 Hurst Olds ornaments they did several years ago are plastic, but this Buick GSX is metal. They sell in the Hallmark stores for $17.95 and in Canada it’s $23.99.

If you want one, I suggest you shop early as popular ornaments usually run out the closer it gets to Christmas.

PHOTO 4 - Shows the 1970 Buick GSX alongside the box it comes in from Hallmark. Maybe Hallmark will someday do a Grand National or better yet, a GNX next year to compliment the 1970 GSX.



DODGE BROTHERS -

One of the best series of car commercials in recent weeks is the one depicting the Dodge Brothers and a quick glance of 100 years of Dodge, of course capped with the Hellcat Challenger. Dodge is riding a wave of good press, especially with the Hellcat.

We have a good customer that lives in Canada near where these cars are produced. He has also driven one of these cars and says it’s nothing short of amazing.

See this Dodge link below:

THE “CATCH" OF THE YEAR -

If you watched the Giants Dallas game, you got to witness what has to be the “catch of the year” by Odell Beckham Jr. It’s a shame that it was for a losing cause, but it definitely increased Odell's value to the team!



2014 BUICK GS NATIONALS - DVD AVAILABLE -

NEW! The 2014 BUICK GS NATIONALS DVD is now available! This 2-disc set contains 4 hours of coverage from Friday & Saturday. You can see the car show and all of the class racing action - Regals! Gran Sports! and lots more!

MORE NEWS ON THE MULTI FUNCTION JUMP STARTERS -

As you read this current Inner Circle, we have the multi-function jumper starter models in stock. They also appear on our Christmas Specials if you buy 3 of them. See our Christmas Specials below.

If you only want to order a single unit, you can now order it on our website - #7629.

Here is a link to these Multi-Function Jump Starter parts on our website:
http://www.kirbanperformance.com/products.php?search_text=7629&submit_button=

We are looking for distributors for this product. The product is very easy to sell and not limited to any specific car or truck owner. For pricing and more details, email me personally - denniskirban@yahoo.com



WE WANT YOUR INPUT -

The company we are working with manufacturers all kinds of batteries, including very small ones. They are not in the automotive market. They are seeking other ideas. Perhaps you have an idea that requires a battery, such as the batteries used in these mini and micro jump starter kits.

Currently we have them working on another product. We sent them a prototype of the idea for them to work from as a sample. We expect it to be a major hit in the targeted market we are going after. In all our research, we have not found any product that duplicates what we are working on.

In this category we will run the descriptions for two to three weeks and, if there is no interest in that particular vehicle, it will be deleted the following week.

NEW PRODUCTS FROM US -

1986-1987 Buick Turbo Regal -
Reproduction O-RINGS KITS

Richard Clark has painstakingly put together 2 kits of reproduction O-rings.

O-rings are available in two kits:

#7633 has 14 O-rings for the injectors and fuel pressure regulator.

#7634 has 35 O-rings. These 35 O-rings will fit virtually every application related to the fuel, lubricants, transmission, and powermaster unit. This kit also includes the 14 O-rings in the #7633 kit for the injectors and fuel pressure regulator.

NOTE - The transmission and powermaster O-rings are for external leaks, and NOT for a complete overhaul.

In many cases, the same O-rings will work on the 1984-1985 Turbo Regal.

Since GM has discontinued many of the Buick O-rings, Richard has had to have some of the O-rings reproduced. In one particular case, the O-ring listed for over $20 from GM, making this kit a bargain.

Kit #7634 includes a real-size drawing to ensure that the correct O-rings can be easily identified. The O-rings should match the drawing exactly.

The O-rings are made of different materials based on the fluid they contact, so no O-rings from any group should ever be used for an application not specified.

In some cases, the original O-rings have been problematic on these cars. The O-rings in this kit has been improved to offer better than original performance.

Any time connections are disturbed, the O-rings should be replaced with new ones.

This kit is the first of its kind specifically for the 1986-1987 Turbo Regals.

A must have item for any 1986-1987 Turbo Regal owner. You should have this kit on hand.

NOTE - We recommend these O-rings be installed by a qualified mechanic.

NOTE - The 14 O-rings in Kit #7633 are INCLUDED in the 35 O-rings in Kit #7634.

Great engine restoration items.

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.



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 -

If you are seeking physical work, head to Buffalo and bring a shovel! It’s hard to imagine getting the entire season’s worth of snowfall in one single blast.
