Recently, I have noticed a lot of activity with people who have less than 20 posts. I, for one, am excited to see this. If you have always wanted to get into the fray around here, kindly introduce yourselves . We really don't bite, and there is more automotive knowledge here than you can find anywhere else on the web.

Welcome in...

Speaking of Buickoholic...

Hi, I'm Derek and I'm a Buick Nut...I know logically I can't save them all, but unfortunately, it seems I keep trying...the new building under construction will reduce / eliminate my space constraint and that scares me a bit.

Dunno Serb,
I just thought maybe there should be an introduction section somewhere, since it appears there are some newbies starting to chime in. More of a howdy. As I stated in a more unpleasant post, maybe a "long time listener, first time caller" type thing. Maybe we can grow the club through the Internet rather than the BCA membership application under the windshield wiper. I know that personally, my closest friends in the club are all regulars here. (and this doesn't include the four or five guys I knew before I found the forum)

My intent was to break the ice and show that we are a bunch of people out to enjoy our Buicks and have a good time. So, to all of you lurkers, do not be afraid to jump in here and let us know who you are. You will probably make more new friends and look forward to all of the back and forth.

Jump right in, the water is fine.

My name is Brian, I think I introduced myself a few years ago, but I don't post much so here I go again.

I grew up a Pontiac fan, but a little over 15 years ago I ran into a '62 Electra four door sedan that spoke to me (not literally) and I bought it. A couple months later I enlisted in the Marine Corps, so the car went into storage. I probably should have sold the car at that point, but my father-in-law had a place for me to store it (which I did for about 8 years). Eventually I got to a point in my Marine Corps career where I could afford to get the car out of storage and bring it to where I was living and even do a little work on it once in a while. Now, I'm living in Georgia, have the car in Georgia with me, and am (very) slowly working on it.

BTW...I'm interested in any '62 Electra information that people are willing to share. My Electra seems to be a bit of a "stripper", a term that sounds odd when connected with an Electra.

I hate to tell you this, but you seemed cooler with Location: San Diego.

See, it's fun!

I can tell you for sure that I would have been a lot cooler this summer in Location: San Diego. . Talk about a shock to the system...going from the comfortable coastal SoCal weather to hot and humid GA.

You talking about the one and only Mr Earl? I am hoping to make a pilgrimage to his location to check out his collection at some point during my tour in GA.

I am Larry and I live in Alvin Texas with my wife, daughter, her fiance and my two grandsons. I became disabled in 2005 and haven't been able to work since then. I have a lot of doctors appointments each month on what's going on with me. In 2005 November I got a virus that is called Guilding Bree' that attacks the nerves in your body and also gives you neroperty of your muscels. I try to enjoy my life the best I can. I have a 1952 ford F1 truck that my sons and I restored and now I have a 1948 Plymouth Special Deluxe Coupe that we'll do the same thing to I'm keeping it a 6 volt system. My son also has a 52 F1 truck that we are working on as we can to get it restored. I enjoy life as it is. I look forward to finding out a lot of information on this form about cars.

Welcome Larry,

I just picked up a 52 F1 project that will be my wife's truck when done. It will be modified but I'll probably be picking your brain in the future when I get started on it.

I'm in NW Arkansas, Eureka Springs. Signed up here a couple years ago when I was going to look for some parts. The internet has sure changed how we do things.

I was in the Buick club for years, joined in about 79 maybe. At that time, my opinion was that the little magazine was short on technical info, and real long on things like arguing about the exact hue and authenticity of a certain engine paint color.....stuff like that. And there was always some subtle ragging about club members not being involved locally........I was like, "Hey, do you want my dues or not?"

Then I bought a couple Studebakers, and joined that club; just the opposite- technical all day long. I loved that Studebaker magazine.

Now I am into English motorcycles. Obsessed with them, but intending to get my old Roadmaster back on the road.

This is just what Mike is talking about. Welcome to all of you new members and a welcome back to the re-introductions.

Brian, no matter what....do not let Mr Earl charge you for a tour of the Buick Garden. He likes to take advantage of the new tourists. When he makes enough money from the entrance fees, he buys another Buick ('54 that is), you can tell by the size of the "Garden" how many paying customers he has shown around.
