    As requested by the users, this forum has been created for the sale/donation of good used or new parts.

    Of course, we all could use free stuff, so let's not flood this with one line requests for 70 GS grills.

    To let folks know what your after, take the time to give us a brief history of your car and yourself, and what your looking for.

    Then, if a board member sees what you need, and has what you need, he can offer it to you here, or thru an email or PM.

    One simple rule for this forum.

    * Parts offered for sale in this forum must be at or below 50% of market value*.

    To determine current market value, a current/recent EBay transaction or sale thru the board here, will be used to determine
    that price. If your unsure, ask before you post please.

    It would also be nice if the generosity of the members is not abused by the parts here turning up on ebay the next day.

    I've seen a couple parts sold on this board at great prices turn up there shortly after at tidy profit, and no I'm not going to say what or when.

    Incidents like this should be reported to me privately, and those individuals will be banned from participating in this section of the board.

    Clean slate for everybody starting now.

    I've posed the MARKET VALUE question many times and have received a wide variation of opinions. Jim, your definition of Market Value is exactly how I determine it, I guess great minds think alike.

    I think we should ask ourselves this: Do we want a person in our club who would buy an item here KNOWING that a) the rules say he can't resell it at a profit, and b) that if he does there will be retribution... and he sells it anyway?

    I suggest a harsher penalty than just banning them from this section of the board. Like banning from the board altogether, or from the BPG, or list their names here publicly so we can see just who would do such a thing. You're all the best, but I say this needs to have some teeth to prove that we are serious about growing the Buick community and proliferating the number of Buicks saved and on the road.

    Just my input y'all.

    I've done this twice so far ....

    I've offered free parts IF those receiving JOINED THE BPG !!!!

    I think its a GREAT way to drive up the membership from the 3,000 V8 users who haven't yet "Seen the Light"

    Not everyone is out to make a fortune selling their parts. Especially old used stuff that isn't exactly NOS... If someone has parts they don't want or need and feel like offering them here to someone that might actually NEED them... well that's what this place is for. Don't feel bad about taking someone up on their offer of an engine/trans.
