    Buick Photos From Hershey 2018

    That 1931 is a BIG Buick!

    Uh oh...what have I done...again?

    Nice. I love station wagons. I cannot wait to see it in person. Don't lose that gas cap!
  3. Meers is closer to Lawton, Oklahoma, which is not that close to Midwest City. My father is from Lawton and we used to go there quite a bit, but I haven't been there in several years.

    2019 National Meet Host Hotel Rates

    As suspected, all the BCA rooms are booked at the Sheraton host hotel. They just gave you a room at the normal rates. To anyone reading this, please call the alternate hotels listed on the registration form. All of these hotels are just as nice, are within walking distance of the Sheraton (no streets or highways to cross), and will give you the same $119 room rate, with breakfast included.

    2019 National Meet Host Hotel Rates

    Pete and I were there this past weekend to finalize some of the meet issues. We were told then that the Sheraton (Host Hotel) was almost sold out. We have the entire hotel except for a few rooms held back for employees, etc. Perhaps they were selling you a room that was out of the block we had reserved. However, every room, including ones from the alternate hotels are supposed to be $119 per night. I'll try to find out what is going on.

    Denver 2018

    The drivers and seniors are included in the total. 400 Point - 72 Display Only - 64 Archival - 21 Modified - 14 Total - 171 In other words, of the 171 cars registered, 53 were driven and 15 were seniors. The Driven and seniors could be in the other categories, too.
  7. Don't focus too much on the numbers. You cannot measure the success or failure of a National Meet just by the numbers. It is still a Buick National Meet, the largest gathering of great Buicks and Buick enthusiasts in the country every year. It will be fun.

    Wildcat 4-speeds, 1965

    Yeah, it is a common conversation with me and my Buick buddies, as to which Buick we would like to have back. I'm sure that idea will make an interesting thread......
  9. About 175 cars and a little over 300 registrations (600 people). Including a lot of regular members from this forum.

    Wildcat 4-speeds, 1965

    The only Wildcat GS was in 1966. Mine did not have the Super Wildcat engine, though. Just a 425 with the big chrome air cleaner and the finned aluminum valve covers. I wish I had that one back.

    Texas Road Warriors --- Mile High Blitz

    John, as adventurous as it sounds, I'm hoping for no adventures. I'm hoping for a safe, reliable, no-surprises, mechanical-breakdown-free trip. I wish that for everyone traveling to and from the show.

    Texas Road Warriors --- Mile High Blitz

    Michelle and I will be leaving the Friday before and staying in Manitou Springs for a few days before heading up to Denver. We will be at the show Tuesday afternoon to open the registration desk. As of this moment, I plan on driving my recently acquired 1998 LeSabre. I might even try to climb Pikes Peak with it while I'm close by. Y'all have safe and easy travels, and we will see you there!
  13. When I read the Cuban articles, I was struck with the thought "What if people in this country took the same amount of effort to keep older cars running and on the road?" Now, I know the situation in Cuba is quite different than the US, but you have to give the Cubans enormous credit for doing whatever it takes to keep these cars on the road. They are not restoring them for show, but keeping them alive for driving. We are spoiled with the easy availability of parts (in most cases) and the income to afford them.

    To resonate or not?

    Bernie, my 1991 Roadmaster Wagon does the same thing with the hot air out the vents when accelerating. And I'm with you; it is an odd character of the car and I would miss it if it didn't happen.
  15. 30 days before the show begins! Deadline is June 1, so get those registrations in now.
