TECHNICAL TIPS is published by
the West Michigan Chapter, BCA as a collection of tips and techniques for keeping the
older Buicks running. The collection of 450 technical tips and specifications were
collected from over 300 back issues of the BUICK BUGLE, national publication of the Buick
Club of America.
This West Michigan Chapter, BCA project, sanctioned
by the Buick Club of America, was over a year in the making. Over 300
8-1/2 x 11 inch pages filled with over 450 tips and specifications
covering Buicks from 1910 to 1985 make this one of the finest
resources ever compiled for a specific make of automobile. Completely
re-typed for easy reading, with 170 illustrations, the book is
arranged into 19 functional chapters, i.e. engine, transmissions,
body, etc., and categorized by year. For instance, if you own a 1938
Buick you can quickly find every reference pertaining to it.
