Default Hello everyone

I'm Joel Reisinger, 19 years old, live in Switzerland and... obviously new to this forum.
I have only one GM car, a 1987 Buick Electra Park Ave. My other cars are three Lincoln Versailles (1977, 1978 and 1980), one Lincoln Mark VII LSC (1987) and a Honda Prelude SN (1981). My daily driver is the 1977 Versailles but the Buick should, once its running as it should, be my new daily.
Over here in Switzerland these cars are quite exotic and pretty much the biggest size you can drive every day. Full size cars just don't fit into the parking spaces over here, even the Buick is a huge car compared to what other people drive.

Welcome to the Forums Joel!
I've got the 97 PA and ya even here they don't always fit into spots.
Can you get parts over there easily for your 87 PA?

Thanks for all your replies!
The cheapest way to buy parts for my american cars is to order them in the states on rockauto... they have fairly cheap shipping but shipping is often more expensive than the parts. If you walk into any car dealership over here and want to buy parts (or if you call some swiss parts warehouse) they will sell you for example an idle air control valves for 150 bucks... and thats rather cheap, the parts for european cars are even more expensive. But I still haven't managed to find the lower part of the air intake box for my buick... not a single scrap yard in switzerland has one.
I will try to take some decent pictures of my cars as soon as the sun gets out again!
