Just " for fun " Poll.

I racked up close to 20 miles in the GS. What about you?

Drove one, but just a few miles. Too much prep work yet to do on the others. But I did look at the others and did a bit of detail cleaning and odds and ends. Sure was nice not to be holding cold tools. But also had to do some yard work.

My daughter came down from NYC this weekend for a visit and asked for a ride in the '28. I took her and her friends out for a 20 minute ride. I just love it.

I wish, the 67 & 72 are still in storage and my son's snow plow off his truck is behind the Reatta in the garage. I made it CLEAR it needs moved SOON

I got the 39 and the 65 out of storage on Saturday. They were stored about 15 miles away from home. I drove the 39; my wife drove the 65. I noticed she "cleared out some carbon" on the way home.

I took my modified 41 Limited out and LITE them up, a bit of smoke, and black marks. Felt like a teenager again.

Boy does it love 80 MPH. FUN is GOOD!

Hi Dave, It looks like you had the oldest Buick listed on this post today, and a lot of fun. GREAT!

Took the Estate Wagon out for 20 or so miles. It was hot and humid down here but the car ran fine.

Got the Riviera and the Reatta out of their storage igloos to get their yearly MA inspection stickers last week. Took the Reatta to our "first of the season" cruise-in on Friday...about 40 miles round trip. I know, I know, they're not old but they are BUICKS!

Saturday I took the '60 over to Sam's in Holley for lunch. Then we went the long way around through Clarendon and saw the waterfall over the Clarendon fault, headed south and skirted a corner of the muckland. That brought us into town from the south so we stopped at Tractor Supply and got a new leaf rake and home, about 40 miles.

Yesterday we took a break from raking and took it up to Tim Horton's for coffee and a quick snack, 4 miles.

In half an hour I have a meeting. I go 5 miles out of my way so I can drive about 10 miles along the Lake Ontario Parkway. Maybe I'll take the '60.

Last weekend had the '91 Reatta at the Texas Bluebonnet meet in Bastrop, Willie and Bill were there (That's Willie Pittman "old tank" and Bill Stoneberg) a new fellow showed up in a 64 yellow Riviera that had under 14K miles, he has owned it for 32 years.

This Saturday our local club met at a park and we drove the '39 Century.

Next weekend is a swap meet/show about 40 miles south..... the GMC pick up will be my ride....might find something I need to haul home.

Went out to my daughter's place yesterday in my '61, about 30 miles round trip. Felt good! Took the back roads, the old Buick was as smooth as silk over that bumpy pavement. It's so odd after driving modern cars when the Buick doesn't shift, it just goes. Only noticed one spot on the garage floor in the rear, maybe the pinion seal is weeping a bit. Just a few drops, not much.

Had our '39 Buick Special Business Coupe out on Saturday for a large charity car show with over 350 cars attending. It was about 20 miles one way, so had a good drive both ways.

Just put a new gear box in and repainted the PS pump and brackets on the 65 Electra on Saturday. I got to play 'service manager' and take it for a 10 or 20 mile drive when I was done. It was nice to have 75 degree weather and have the top down again.

It's going to get to the low 30's tonight with a few inches of the white stuff expected on the ground. It won't last too long.

I'll have to stick to driving the other conv. (Mini) tomorrow.
