  1. Beware of hi-jacked Buicks-for-Sale ads

    Your pictures are so good, you should watermark them to stop this stuff. Unobtrusive, it keeps folks from stealing your property.
  2. The 2018 - 2500 Challenge

    John, Old tank probably has driven his cars more then I have. Its easy now, ask in July and August when your AC won't keep up with the sun.
  3. On OCTOBER 12-13, 2018, come to the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country for a weekend of food, friends and touring in your Buick. The Alamo Chapter is hosting the fall regional meet. Rather than a traditional car show format, this will be a touring meet with headquarters at the Inn of the Hills along the Guadalupe river in Kerrville Texas. Festivities will include a welcoming Bar B Que dinner Friday night at Bill & Dee Stoneberg’s house. The tour Saturday will follow the South Fork of the Guadalupe River as we climb up to the top of the Edwards Plateau. We will then drop back down into the Sabinal River valley passing Lost Maples State Park and then turning west to experience one the three “twisted sisters” on the way to Leaky in the Frio River Canyon for lunch. After lunch we will return via 83 to Garvens store and Hwy 41 past the YO ranch. Eventually, we will turn on 1340 and traverse the North Fork of the Guadalupe River to Hunt and then back to Kerrville. This will be a tour of about 120 miles tour on scenic roads. Dinner Saturday night will be at the host hotel where we will partake of a Prime Rib buffet. For hotel reservations, contact the Inn of the Hills, or (800) 292-5690. Ask for the Buick Club of America room rate of $129 / night. This rate is good until September 12, 2018. Expect some fun and driving on this meet, come with a full tank of gas and the desire to see the wide-open spaces of Texas. Registration fee - $25.00 per couple Friday night BBQ - $17.00 per person Saturday night dinner - $20.00 per person Contact Bill Stoneberg with questions –
  4. The 2018 - 2500 Challenge

    Took a 629 mile round trip from Kerrville Texas to Conroe Texas. I am now at 702 miles since I joined this challenge. We took back roads on the way and it was a pain towards the end. City traffic on a Friday afternoon. A cold and rain from came through Friday night / Saturday morning and all the cars got wet and dusty. They had a garage tour that all the folks had fun on. The drive home Sunday was straight down the Interstate with cruise control set at 70 Stopped at Buc-ees which is the large car stop / watering hole / gas station. They boast the cleanest restrooms in Texas and they probably have 100 stalls. Probably 1 restroom stall per gas pump. I was glad to get out of the flat Houston area and back into the hills where I live. I got 13 mpg in the all Interstate part of the drive and 12 mpg for the in town driving. A few pictures of the drive home. Wildflowers along the side of the road, Buc-ees and the hills at home.

  9. where are the modified's

    Bos, If you want to see modified in the Bugle, send the editor pictures and an article. He doesn't know modifies , so he doesn't write about them. He will print it if he gets articles.
  10. I went to a shop that sold mirrors and they put me in touch with a gentleman who could do it. Cost me $20 for my 1950 mirror.
  11. It is amazing what a difference redone seats can make. I felt when I redid the seats in my Electra.
