    Who's Going to Denver

    Who's going and what's your itinerary? Driving (what) or flying? When arriving? Where are you staying. What ya doing, tours, just hangin at a bar or? Going to the BHA or Awards Banquet? Any suggestions for us all getting together somewhere? Just registered on line so guess it is official for me and Rita. The wagon nor the airstream is ready so will be flying in on Thursday. Stayin at the Marriott (just look for the knapsack, sterno and Spam cans in the bushes) Will try and make the General Membership meeting Thurs evening. Taking the train to the Botanical Gardens on Friday. Opted out of the banquets and donated to the Bugle instead so will be looking to hang with others somewhere Friday and Saturday night.Will probably dress up a bit and crash the Award Banquets social though. 🤪 Reeally looking forward to seeing everyone as it has been a WHILE!!!!! edit) anyone on the fence about going, come on!!! still not to late to register I mean after all, who knows when the next chance to see me will be. .
  2. For your health's sake, here is a daily therapeutic dose of pictures or other Buick related "stuff" found on the web or maybe even some of my own. Some may be artsy, some may be old, some simple, some hot, some cold , some happy, some sad, some abstract and maybe even avant-garde or grandiose. Guaranteed to furnish only the daily minimum requirement of Buick to barely keep you going. It is not meant to be a replacement for driving or working on your Buick.
  3. are you bringin this to the Nationals !?!?!!

    WTB - 56 Buick front bumper support

    What series? I suspect they are different
  7. but did you replace it with a known good one. I went through all the fuel and electrical scenarios, including new coil, on a '54 once and finally tried a coil from another of my running 54's. Problem solved.

So let's see them! and who knows, maybe your car will end up featured in a calendar some day.

I see that you have read the PM I sent you. Now go back to it and see if you can reply to it by entering text where it says "Reply to this conversation"

    The membership meeting would probably be more interesting if we met in the bar before the meeting but after sounds good to me.

    1957 Buick Special Restomod Project

    Lookin good Gary!!! I love the '57 sweepspears and the roof line and rear window treatment. Refresh my memory, is their chrome on the raised strip that runs down the roof line and the trunk lid? The only thing that looks a bit awkward on the '57's is the front bumper, the dagmars make it look a bit bottom heavy IMO. A '57 Olds is a bit cleaner in my opinion. But hey, tha's jist my opinion. Looking forward to seeing some color on that baby. What color is it going to be btw.?

    1955 model 41-D for parts or restore, Texas car

    don't see many '55 4 door sedans. Pete is all the AC there, can't see the dash controls. 5-6 years ago I would be hooking up my trailer and coming to see you.
  19. FINALLY getting around to sharing the build of a long time dream with y'all, my Buick Sales and Service Garage. The build started about two years after I retired and I had completed about half of the honeydew list that just seemed to keep getting longer. I have always had a thing for old Buick dealerships, especially those of the 50's but more especially the very early one's of the 20's and 30's. Many early car dealers came from the ranks of men involved in the horse related trades such as carriage sales, livery stable operators and blacksmiths. These merchants and tradesmen often engaged in automobile sales and services as sidelines and eventually turned their operations into full scale auto sales and service businesses. Many of the early dealerships also served as a gas station and garage. The materials used on the fronts of the early buildings were usually wood lap, vertical board and batten or metal siding. Later buildings were more of a masonry type construction. My build is basically a 40X40X12 ft pole barn with a lap siding stepped false front that was typical on 1920-30's era car dealership/service garages. There will also be a 12 x 20 metal clad interior wall welding shed on the back. The building will be used to house and work on my collection of '54's, the '38 and the '79 wagon. I initially considered building a 40-50's art deco style building but since my wife and I have spent the last 30 years building our Victorian farm house style home, barns and gardens, we decided to stay with that general theme. Here's our home, the old Buick Barn and the cobblestone well house. Before jumping into telling about and showing the actual work that has been going on over the last few couple years, let me try and set the mood for the build with some old photos of buildings of the period. Here is what I first considered, but totally not in the style of the rest of our buildings. These represent more the spirit or feel of what we like. And here is a video that I think might help capture and set the mood. I'll be sharing a few of my favorite tunes through out this build so if you want, click on it then come back here and read on ...... or ignore it. And my most liked and the one I used as a basis for the front false facade of my build.

    I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    Guilty as charged guys. But if it helps my reputation any, after leaving a couple of teeth in the steering wheel of the Chevelle then spending 3 years in the USMC, the first car I bought upon returning home was a ‘54 Buick and had one ever since. Hope that helps😃
