All my earlier bragging about the year round driving season we enjoy in Australia has come back to bite me on the arse. Tore my Achilles Tendon pushing my son's flat battery '89 Toyota out of the way when I was planning to get my '36 out of the garage for a weekend away, now I cannot drive for at least 8 weeks,......damn!

 

My condolences Paul!!! I was so looking forward to all your posts too...Hope you heal faster!

Saturday was my grandmother's birthday, so I took the car out to visit her. She supposedly drove it off the assembly line in Flint, Michigan. The car was ordered from the Kessler dealership in Detroit, and she went to go pick it up while my grandpa as on base. The odd thing is that it came with aftermarket mirrors, which I suppose were an afterthought by my grandfather. They later took the car and drove out west where they settled in 1958 and started their family. This is the first time I've driven the car out. Never thought about it before until now, so I made sure to thank her for not getting rid of it after all those years.

Times like this calls for a Buick Snow-Master. Drags Scrap metal out of the way as easy as moving piles of snow. Dandy Dave!

Seventy degree day Friday, Feb. 17, 2017 in Northern Colorado.  Warmed up the old Roadmaster with the top down and had lunch at A & W.  We just might survive until Spring.

Took Irene out today for the bi-monthly Buick club meet down by the river.  Drove very well as always.   From here we ventured to an aircraft museum for a look through.

The drive home was spectacular with a lightning and thunderstorm show and a few drops of rain.   Got home just in time before the big downpour.

Took "Almendron" to a car show in Palmetto Bay, FL from Miami about 20 minutes ride. Left from wheel grease cap came loose inside the hub cap on the last turn and boy what a rattle. Other than that.... a magic carpet ride. Have a 1 minute video but can't upload

That picture above looks like Irene dancing into the 28" of snow we got this week. No old Buicks out around here, maybe Sunday.
