    There's autumn leaves in those pictures Doug, I'm not seeing them. All I see is one gorgeous Estate Wagon

    😆 not quite, but a wonderful condition driver. Loved the original interior, red wheels and black walls. There did seem to be lots of 30s-40s parts there though, 50s, not so many. I may look into changing that next year.

    Sorry we missed y'all. We arrived Wednesday evening and the next morning parked the truck and trailer in the trailer parking and then walked not even half the fields. Friday we entered and parked in Brian's spot and set up an honor box and walked all day. The next day we drove the '38 onto the show field and walked that til around 4:00. It was good to have Brian as a guide, very knowledgeable of all the Buick vendor locations. ha, moving targets, indeed, I had quite a few recognize me from either my avatar here or the picture in the Bugle What's Happening on the Forum features I guess. Apparently the mustache is a giveaway. Was glad to hear some positive feedback on the monthly Bugle articles as I have been wondering if anyone even reads them Sounds like y'all were on the road quite a bit. Our toughest day was Sunday. From Hershey to Brian's in Charlotte, unload car, then to car wash to wash BA truck AND BA trailer, then to Bob's in Winston -Salem, then back to Brian's (in his Regal spots car) then I head home to Athens, in heavy rain. Two-thirds the way home my eyes start crossing so pull over on an exit, set my cell alarm for 45 minutes then on to the house arriving around 2:00 am to a tail waggin Elvis and hugs from Reet before falling in bed and sleeping till noon. Quite an adventure.

    😆 Very likely, as I felt like giving him one myself.

    Seriously Pete? When I saw your post, I assumed it was your telling that you were on your way to it with trailer in tow.
  8. I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    I still wish Bob Coker could have joined Brian and me on the trip! Although I don't know if Hershey could have handled that? And Dave and Al, sorry I missed you two, would have been great meeting you!

    Can't post what wasn't there Smitty. No '54's were even registered for the show or in the car corral. There was one there however, a beautiful Gull Grey Skylark that when I complimented the owners on the color of it, all I got was a head nod, no thank you or even so much as a smile, I just kept walking and had not planned to even post a picture of it. But if it will make you happy ...

    $9,000 OBO VERY nicely restored. Single beds only killed the deal pretty quickly for me though

    All in all and thanks to my dear old friend Bob Coker entrusting us with the awesome 350 Super Duty and Landau trailer, Brian and I had a wonderful time. Lots of story telling, joking and laughter. I've always considered Brian a friend, but after this trip and 5 days of camaraderie, I must say I consider him a GOOD friend. Thanks Brian!

    Met and enjoyed a nice conversation with this fine gentleman from California, Leonard Hayes BCA No. 5 !!! Then it was time to load up the Roadmaster and head back to the hotel for dinner and go to the awards ceremony (This is one of my favorite shots of the week) And not surprisingly Brian and the car won senior . They ran out of trophies, but within three days Brian had received them in the mail.

    Then it was SHOWTIME Brians Roadmaster was honestly my favorite of the whole field But this 29 was a close second, BEAUTIFUL job Had a nice conversation with Phillip Roitman, super nice guy, AWESOMELY restored '69 Gran Sport !!! The restored Buicks were nice but honestly I spent more time in the HPOF area looking at some unbelievable original condition cars, my faves Another favorite

    Surely you have been right? If not or even if you have, you owe it to yourself to go. I will definitely be trying to make it back as many times as possible in the future. It does wear on your legs and feet but it may be possible to use a scooter, there were many of them there. As can be seen in these pictures the swap meet fields are huge
