  1. Great job Jim...glad to have met you both!
  2. Thanks Brian...this was my first Nationals so I guess you have set the standard for me. I will try to not miss another...see you all in South Bend.
  3. I was sure nice to meet most of you guys! I had a blast at my first Nationals... Only thing for me was the heat, I can take the cold but as Mike said you can only get so much naked. Dad and I had a little miss fortune on the way home, a dammed wreck that held us up for about two hours just sitting on I-81 so by the time we started looking for hotels they were all booked up. We stopped at about 5 exits tried about 10 different hotels all full. I just told Dad to recline the seat and I will drive the whole way home....18 hrs on the road. Special thanks goes to Brian....great job man. Also thanks to Lamar who showed me around and introduced me to so many. It was also nice to have some 55 guys at the first ever 54B Forum lunch. Hope to see all you guys next year!
  4. Yea you know it, at first it looks almost impossible but play with it enough and bang...it grabs!
  5. Ahh don't worry Brian, they will show up...just like our 54 1954's
  6. Ya'all havent met me I figure....... Might want to make sure I'm first in for that endeavor. I quote Lamar's first comment when he saw my unloading pic of my Roadmaster.... "Good thing you got a LARGE body Buick!" Bahhh...no problem, at least I'm drought and famine resistant.
  7. I do(did)....pretty simple job to do once you have the kit... I have a write up with pics here: Fuel/Vac Pump Rebuild You will have to register to see the pics.
  8. Take note folks! 39 36-37-38's is stunning.......were you able to get every model, I can't imagine how rare that would be?
  9. Yea and whats the count on the Anniversary Buick's? <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/BfRsyDp8vX4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  10. I can respect that... I was dismayed with your reasons for terminating your membership, but with some thought it has occurred to me that you still are here helping others. It is what its is...and it is not the same for everybody. I am about to embark on a special trip, my first Nats and 10 days with my Dad. As a young lad I used to spend countless hours in the winter driving on back snow covered roads with him, on the way to some hockey practice or game. I am who I am today because of him and those one on one talks. Its more than just a car hobby.....its about the connection to your past and present.
  11. Too bad, I would have liked to meet you and your 2 Buick convertibles.
  12. Yup.... We said 54 1954 Buick's right.....well we left out the fine print. It was in Gallon to liters format. Yes that gives us a 53 54 Buick's but I think on the day of the event we will get out 54 (liter) 1954 Buick's! <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/gQoBiICacYQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  13. Yea but cheap oil means a worse CDN dollar exchange....at least its not at $0.70 anymore though. Got $0.97 today.....last April it was close to $1.02 USD
  14. Why do people not go? It can be a costly commitment which demands time, energy and effort to go. The costs however of attending the actual meet are NEGLIGIBLE compared to the costs of actually making the trip so the BCA can not be at fault for the meet costs. I think it comes down to the travel costs and if they are worth the experience of attending. This will be my first Nationals this year, I will be traveling down from Canada with my Dad....I hope to make this our annual thing. I also hope to meet all my online Buick friends....time, energy and effort well spent methinks. Could not imagine a reason for not going would be over a simple and CHEAP club membership fee, let alone a CHEAP registration fee.
  15. June????? Just got May last week....no complaints though. LOL,the joy of being "International" in Canada.
  16. Active thread on that very subject... http://forums.aaca.org/f115/nailhead-engine-rebuilder-329053.html
  17. Yea but that doesn't help me get behind the wheel of an old Buick on my way to the Nationals.
  18. How about a 63? It sure is close to me.... 1955 Buick Century four door hardtop - Kingston Collector Cars For Sale - Kijiji Kingston Canada.
  19. Damm a little closer and I would have been your man! Kinda out of my way after I get by Buffalo....
  20. Well at least there will be some more room around your place soon I will let you know what day I will be by, likely Sun-Mon?
  21. ...bahhh you can sleep on the way home, everyone knows Buick's drive themselves.
  22. I too tried the very same.... Long Live Shelby!
