Greetings Turbo Regal Inner Circle Members 05-06-2020 –

UPDATE ON SHIPPING –

We are still able to ship daily, both by mail and UPS. Some parts are getting difficult to get. Thank you for your patience.



NEW PRODUCT - JUMP STARTER – AGA GROUP –

Recently we were contacted by a company that has just released a new hand-held jump starter. Many of you may recall when we first sold these about 8 years ago. We were one of the first to sell what is a hand-held battery jumper.

The initial test we did was on a Regal in a junkyard that had the keys still in the ignition. The yard is owned by a friend of mine and he seldom let people stroll through the property. The car was back in the woods and had a PA inspection sticker that was several years old. I hooked up the hand-held jumper to it and to my amazement the car cranked like it was parked just last week! That sold me on the product and we sold hundreds of them.

We later sold a smaller version, which I still use to this day.

It looks like a typical smart phone in size and design. We also use ours to test various 12-volt parts on our work bench.

This new one we recently bought will start a V8 gas engine up to 5 liters and a diesel engine up to 3 liters.

It comes with all the various phone leads, a built-in flashlight, and jumping capability. It has both a car charger and house charger. All the pieces come in a custom zippered carrying case.

At this point, we are testing the market to see if it is something we would to add to our product line. The price is $139.95 plus $12 shipping to the basic 48 states. You must contact our office -215-766-1611 - if you want one. We have 4 in stock for immediate delivery.

HERE ARE THE SPECIFICATIONS -

The unit measures: 3-½ inches wide by 7 inches tall by ¾ inches thick.
AGA A39
1000mAh/37WH
Support Wireless charging
4 battery cells inside 12-16v to start
Peak 600 Amps
Start Range 5.0 liters gas 3.0 liters diesel

It is a multi-function Jump Starter. 12v output, LED light, USB1 and USB 2 output

PHOTO 1 – We show all the parts included in this Jump Starter kit. It comes complete with special carrying case.



TURBO REGAL TRIM - SEMI-BLACK SPRAY PAINT -

We recently purchased some semi-black spray paint for a project. We bought it from the same supplier that we buy the grey, blue, and burgundy Turbo Regal interior spray paint. Spray paint in those 3 colors has been a huge seller for us. The spray paint in those various colors are a perfect match and dries within minutes, making it easy to use.

The semi-black spray we just purchased looked to me like a dead-on match to the black-out trim used on the Turbo Regals. I happen to have a pair of the reproduction black headlight bezels in stock so I sprayed a portion of one of them to see how it matched. It matched perfectly.

Keep in mind, you are never going to get a perfect match against a 35-year-old part that has been exposed to the sunlight. This is a nice option for touch-up or to redo any black trim parts or black taillight bezels. It dries within minutes, which is a nice benefit.

We have it in stock, part #7883. The price is $19.95 plus shipping for an 11-ounce spray can.

PHOTO 2 - We show the 11-ounce spray can of Color Right semi-black spary paint. We also show both the new AC air cleaner decal and the Buick Recall decal. We just introduced these decals in last week’s Inner Circle. Decals are also in stock.

Here is a link to this semi-black spray paint on our website.



TURBO REGAL DRIVE-TRAIN FOR SALE –

We were recently contacted by a customer of ours located in upper eastern Pennsylvania near the New York border. About 12-15 years ago he bought a 1987 Grand National that had been t-boned in an accident. He bought the entire wreck. His plan was to drop the drivetrain in a street rod he was going to build.

This gentlemen also had a 1987 Grand National years ago in his car collection. Even with the best laid plans, this project got put on the back burner. This complete drivetrain with harness radiator transmission, etc. has been sitting in the second floor of his barn on a dolly. Because of his initial plan, he made sure he removed everything he needed for the conversion, including the engine harness, radiator, computer, etc.

FOR SALE – Complete stock 1987 Buick Grand National engine, all assembled, with turbocharger, intercooler, ignition coil, wire harness installed. AC compressor, condenser, alternator, computer instrument panel cluster, powermaster brake unit, radiator, original transmission still bolted to the engine. Everything together ready to install. Speedometer shows 1955 miles (probably 119,555 miles. Engine salvaged years ago for hot rod project that never happened. Engine is on a pulling cart in dry storage. The price is $4,800.

If interested, contact denniskirban@yahoo.com I will put interested parties in touch with the seller. Parts are located in the northeastern part of Pennsylvania near the border with New York.

PHOTO 3 – We show 4 views of this complete 1987 Turbo Regal drivetrain, parts and radiator.



MORE COLLECTIBLES FROM MY PRIVATE COLLECTION –

Among the items we have saved, I found a copy of the GTO Car Show Memorial booklet from our very first event held in mid-June 1988. The timing was perfect as the Pontiac Oakland Club International was planning to hold their national event in nearby Downingtown, PA on June 21st and 22nd.

In 1988, we were still very much involved in marketing GTO parts and I was a member of the Pontiac Oakland Club. We saw this opportunity to put on our first car show event featuring the popular GTO and Turbo Regals. We also had a strong connection with Hurst.

This event was quite remarkable as we held it at our old house on Sugar Bottom Road in Furlong, PA. The event drew over 150 cars. According to the booklet, we had 25 Turbo Regals in attendance and 3 real GNXs. The Turbo Regal owners came from as far away as Wisconsin and Canada. Our one neighbor who lived 2 doors down from us allowed us to put all 25 Turbo Regals on their lawn! They had a beautiful gated property and were not even car enthusiasts. Matter of fact, the husband drove an Oldsmobile diesel! They even cooked hot dogs at their house for the people. It is extremely rare to have neighbors that neighborly.

We had 7 show quality GTOs all with Hurst wheels on our front lawn. We even had the co-founder of Hurst, Bill Campbell, attend our event. Even back then a nice set of Hurst wheels would bring $2,000 or more. I know as I sold the set off my 1964 GTO for $2,000.

The editor of Muscle Car Review magazine, Paul Zararine, made the trip to cover it for the magazine.

We had one GTO owner drive their GTO all the way from Houston, Texas to our event - a distance of 1,600 miles.

In looking through this booklet, it brought back fond memories for me. Most of my family and Eileen’s was there. My parents made their famous grape leaves and my mother-in-law made trays of Italian Ziti.

Looking back this was the first car show event that lead to “Reunion” events each summer, including the two large Reunion events held at the nearby Johnsville Airbase that would feature several hundred cars. Probably the largest gathering of GTOs and Turbo Regals sponsored by a vendor and not a national club.

I would be curious to know if any of you were at this event in June of 1988. If you were, what are your memories? I would share them with our readers in next week’s Inner Circle.

In my opinion, the rarest original GNX-related brochure would be the one ASC put out, which showcased their various involvement with the cars they would modify for the various auto makers. This 8-½ by 11 beautiful brochure is dated 1988. It shows a Firebird model called the “Firebird Suntour” with various ground effects and a sunroof. I have no idea if this car ever saw production as it appears to be a 1987 model. The brochure also shows a right–hand-drive Celica convertible that ASC did for Toyota.

The third car featured in this brochure shows the GNX. It’s interesting that in the written copy it states that 500 were produced. It talks about the vision for the future for ASC that was founded in 1965. Back then it was known as American Sunroof Company. This very rare brochure is listed for sale under the Rare Parts section.

PHOTO 4 – The top left and top right photos shows the cover of the 1988 GTO HEAVEN REUNION booklet and two of the pages from this original booklet from our first car show event.
The bottom left photo and bottom right photos show the cover of the original ASC 1988 brochure and the 2-page spread on the GNX.



MORE INFORMATION ON THE BUICK RECALLS –

See New Products as we have the new reproduction Buick Recall decals and the Air Cleaner box decal in stock. They are sold as a pair and are for the 1986-1987 Turbo Regals.

Each Buick Recall was given a certain number. This number would have been writing in on the Recall decal and dated. The brake switch was probably the most widely known Turbo Regal recall. The number for the Brake Switch Recall was 87-C13.

Another one that I remember involved the e-prom and it was only for the 1987 Turbo Regals. The GNX was not affected by this recall. This recall for only the 1987 Turbo Regals was 87-C14.

According to the notice I have in my collection, this was issued in June 1992. The reason was that the EPA determined that the original eprom, in some cases, was emitting pollutants in excess of the Federal Emission standards. By 1992 some owners had already changed the eprom so they basically ignored this Recall Notice from Buick. Watch for more information in future Inner Circles.



MORE INFORMATION ON THE SERVICE BULLETINS –

As we noted last week, Buick Dealer Service Bulletins were also issued to dealers to keep them informed of any changes or new models created during the model year. The most widely-known Buick Service Bulletin covered all the critical part numbers with illustrations of the various parts related to the popular GNX. Going by memory, you had to provide certain critical information back then in order to order specific GNX parts. This Buick Dealer Service Bulletin on the GNX was released in November 1988.

I found one interesting Buick Service Bulletin dated August 1987 listing the weatherstrips for the T-Tops Regals. They had reversed the part numbers! In the same Service Bulletin they show that starting in January 1987 for the hardtop Regals, on all models a new roof rail weatherstrip is being used. It goes on to state they will look the same but are thicker and softer. The new weatherstriping would minimize wind noise.

I am sure not many of my readers would have known about this change. It’s interesting that they say it “minimizes” wind noise, when the goal should have been to eliminated wind noise altogether!

This is how the information was released to car dealers in the 1980s. Today, for the most part, it is all done on the internet. For example, prior to the virus, you could walk into a dealership give them your 17-digit VIN number and they could run a printout listing every option in your car or truck. They could probably even tell you in which plant it was made. Today, in almost every case, you need to supply your VIN number to order specific parts since parts got changed at a various times during production. This method is virtually required with any foreign or domestic car or truck.



GRAND NATIONAL LICENSED T-SHIRT CLOSE OUT SALE –

See Rare Parts section for the few remaining T-shirts we have available. We have just two sizes left - XXL and XXXL only. We are looking for another supplier.



CUSTOM SCREEN PRINTED MASKS WITH YOUR LOGO –

The owner of the used car dealership I do work for, has worked out a deal with a local company to do screen printed masks. They are one-ply 50/50 blend (T-shirt material) with raw edges. Two ear slots on each side for one size fits all comfortable custom fit. It does not pull on the ears. Easy to put on and remove when you are out in public. Machine washable. Printed in one color only. (We recommend white which looks the best since all the masks are black). You chose any basic single color for your logo or quote. All masks are black.

Many states will require the wearing of some sort of masks when out in public, this is one you can easily carry in your pocket and use as needed.

PRICING: The minimum is 50 custom printed masks for $400 with your logo or quote. The price includes providing a proof, screen setup, and shipping to any of the 48 states. We can also do smaller quantity, with a custom quote or logo. Contact me for that pricing.

Note: For added protection, these masks fit easily over a disposable surgical mask or a coffee filter can be worn behind the cloth. Coffee filters is one method they recommend on the internet for further protection.

Keep your employees looking uniform and professional while representing your company and following the CDC recommendations to wear masks in public and the workplace.

Also a great promo or fun raising product. We can also supply blank black masks for a lesser price.

NEW PRODUCTS FROM US –

1984-1987 Buick Turbo Regal -
SEMI-BLACK EXTERIOR TRIM SPRAY PAINT
 
This spray paint is semi-black and is a excellent color match for the  black-out trim moldings that was used on certain Turbo Regal models.

It is made by the same company that color matches the grey, dark blue, burgundy paint we also sell from this same source.

It dries within minutes. While many variations of semi-black exist, we found this to be a very close match. Remember, no paint color is going to match trim that has been exposed for over 30 years of sun and weather. 

This is ideal to do the taillight trim parts and the plastic headlight bezels.

NOTE - You may also be interested in these other spray paints - #7419 - Aluminum Grey Last Blast High Temperature Formula Spray Paint and #6822 - Interior Spray Paint (grey, dark blue or burgundy

NOTE - Spray paint can ONLY be shipped by UPS GROUND… because of restrictions, we CANNOT ship paint by AIR.

Another excellent product for any restoration.

Here is a link to this semi-black spray paint on our website.

It goes on the side of the top portion of the metal factory air cleaner box. There is no precise location but generally can be found on the side towards the driver’s fender.

The reproduction Brake Switch Recall Decal measures 2″ x 1″ and is white with black lettering, which is the identical size and color as the original.

There was no exact placement for where the Service Department would put the Recall decal showing it was completed. Generally, it was put on the core support near the Belt Routing decal. A date was written in along with the other related information, which showed the recall was completed. The recall related to the powermaster brake switch was not issued until the fall of 1990.

NOTE ABOUT PHOTOS ON THE WEBSITE -

We have heard from a couple people that have viewed the photos on the website. Because these must 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 - and 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 – It will be nice once spring weather hits and we can go outside.
