Good to FINALLY  meet you Matt, especially since the meal and beers were on you. Thanks! How’d you make out at the casino 🎰😆

Thanks for the great company by yourself and Matt.  Was a great time.  I am also glad we finally got a chance to meet after all of these years. 

Matt, it was also nice getting to meet you!  Hopefully you get your car straightened out.

Thanks Lamar! It was great seeing you again also. Glad you had a good time and found that beautiful BUICK sign to add to your garage.

 I am home safe in Durham. Thanks @MrEarl and @38Buick 80C for having me along.  Great to finally meet @jackofalltrades @Larry Schramm @Jack Welch @dibarlaw @Joseph P. Indusi and anyone else I have forgot to mention!

@NCReatta I hope you made it home safe with your new toys!

 

 

The pleasure was all mine Matt. Looking forward to doing it again next year. I’ll add my thanks to Brian for again sharing his space. Hopefully I’ll be successful in getting a site next to you next year. Really sorry I missed meeting @Joseph P. Indusi when he stopped by, hopefully next year!

My big score. I like beer ... I mean letters. 

Mid-century modern from Shore Buick, Long Island, New York. Would love to hear anything anybody knows about the dealership. Extra credit for pictures. 😆

Thanks I’m on the road and can’t do much searching. I sometimes search town archives and libraries for Buick Deslerships. Thanks again!!! 🙏

Lamar, it may simply be coincidence, but the 1947 Buick Dealer Planning Guide included an image of "Shore Buick".  This is clearly a drawing, and I don't know whether this particular concept was ever built or whether it had any connection to the Shore Buick that your cool sign came from, but thought I'd pass this along:

MrEarl  Shore Buick was in Sunrise Highway in Bellmore it was A 50s-60s modern building tall full glass front those letters were on the front of the building.

the franchise went out during the consolidation GM did with Buick pairing with GMC. Shore was a single car line point so the Buick point was moved to Sun in Wantagh, who had GMC (they sponsor our LI chapter show). the building was finally torn down about 3 years ago and is now a big parking lot for the Big appliance store PC Richards which is across the side street. i remember going to look at the last gen Riviera Silver Arrow they had on the floor. i was unable to come up with a pic i am going to contact another member of our chapter that might have more info on the dealer and letters.The drawing above as nice as it is is nothing like the actual building. nice score
