  1. See you at Hershey Frank! Always nice to see you and the family.
  2. Hi Mark, I am just seeing this post now as I have been out of commission for almost a month due to a recent lung operation. I still only have limited experience with Nationals and National tours, but here is my 2 cents worth. I would love to see another National done by the TRAACA as the one in 2015 was fantastic and the Aviation Museum is a must see and a grand venue for such an occasion. ( I know there is an even better one planned for your area in the future as per our discussions) The Grand National planned for the NB Center next year should be fantastic as well since the location and venue can't be beat. A National at the Henry Ford in the future would be super cool and a good way to take in all the sights as well. While we are at it it would also be a lovely place/area for a Founders Tour! My last thoughts are any National or Tour that can be combined with an existing Auto Museum would be a perfect pairing. (ie; Gilmore, Lane, etc.) Thanks for seeking out the members input. Looking forward to seeing you and Marion this year at the GN in Auburn, the NJ National, and of course Hershey. Hopefully my health allowing me do some more Meets/Tours if possible.
  3. I met Austie Clark in 1982 at The Madison Avenue Sports Car Driving and Chowder Society luncheons at Sardi's. I was invited to become a member in 1983 or 84? I was SCCA racing and a Board member of the NYRSCCA at the time. He was a wonderful man and his stories and cars were also wonderful. He is greatly missed, and as usual a toast to the original members including Austie was done at last weeks 61st Anniversary Chowder Xmas party. Great memories!
  4. I just finished totaling the mileage for the year of my '75 Electra, which has been documented in the "Raise your hand if you drove at least one Buick this weekend". In fact I just posted my last of the season there with the total. The car was great and is a great driver. She even won a 1st Award Jr. at the Gettysburg AACA Eastern Spring Meet. OK, get to the point! The number of miles driven was 3,057.
  5. Drove the Electra Friday to the pole Barn. My 1st post with the Electra this year was April 29th with 20,312 miles after a show and tour in Ct. the day before we got her out of the pole Barn with a dead battery with 20,234 miles. Friday I had to have her towed to the shop because it turned out the fusible link blew. So I started and ended the season fixing small problems. Otherwise she was a fun driver this year, and thankfully the only problems were the ones at the start and end of the season. She now has 23,291miles, for a total mileage of 3,057 for the year. Everything is now stored for the winter. Can't wait for the Spring!
  6. I did sign up for the mileage awards. I am now waiting to hit 5000 miles before I send the documents in. Almost all the mileage has been documented in the Buick Forum "Raise your hand if you drove an old Buick this weekend" Bought the car July 1 2017 with 18,500 miles and she is mostly all original. It now has 23,3XX miles. Might just have to wait till next year to send in the papers as I am putting her away next week for the winter. P.S. Drove her to the Gettysburg Meet and did all the tours and the show, she even surprised us and took a First Award Junior! The car has been a wonderful driver and garners quite a bit of attention. I think the Black and Red color scheme make the car pop.
  7. Drove the '75 Electra a bit today and took out my new to me '16 AMG GTS Edition1 for a ride also. The AMG is as close to a 300 SL as I am going to get and I love it! ? Pictures from in front of my house.
  8. Drove the Yellow '73 Sun Coupe a bit last week at the AACA Hershey Meet. It was great to see some BCA'ers and lots of Buick's. Took the Gold '73 4 speed out this weekend and drove it to the shop, (about 18 miles) cleaned it up and loaded it on the trailer today. We leave to Bowling Green, Kentucky Tuesday for the GSCA Nationals next weekend. ?

  10. I just posted over 200 photos on the AACA FaceBook page. It is difficult to post more than 2 or 3 photos anymore on this forum or in the photo album area. I hope you can get to the FB site.
  11. 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.
  12. We will be showing my car in class 36F. Going for my first Preservation Award with the car.
