  1. First Sunday morning Cars and Coffee of the year. Also, the first outing for my newly acquired Lucerne Green 60 LeSabre sedan.
  2. Wow. My 2013 Enclave has a button that allows me to turn off the power liftgate, same with my wife’s minivan.
  3. I received the following via email this afternoon: A message from the National Meet Committee 2021 DUAL National Meet Cancelled The Buick Club of America Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2021 Dual Meet scheduled for June/July this summer. The National Meet Committee (NMC) held several meetings with the board to review the current public health guidance related to the pandemic and the impact on the event. These guidelines included capacity restrictions and face covering mandates both indoors and outdoors along with contract tracing and health check requirements. After much discussion, careful consideration and an overabundance of caution, the board decided to cancel the meets this summer. Strongsville and Charlotte/Concord are excellent locations to host National Meets therefore the BOD and NMC will be working with the local chapters and hotels to determine their interest in hosting a meet in future years. The majority of the BCA membership’s demographic is considered in the “vulnerable population” and consequently at a higher risk for the COVID-19 virus. Naturally, this vulnerability leads seniors to be very concerned for their safety if attending a mass gathering event such as a national meet. In addition, there is uncertainty as to how businesses (including those we had planned on for activities) will be operating in the June/July timeframe and possibility not being open at all. This is currently the case with some tour activities that were planned for Strongsville. Given this, the events would look very different than what was planned and experienced by the membership in past years. The current public health orders in both locations do not provide a conducive environment to holding our typical national meet event. The board offers their sincere appreciation to the National Meet Committee and the 2021 host chapters for their hard work and dedication for not only planning the meets but for providing detailed information on the current pandemic restrictions and how the events could be affected. This decision was very difficult for the board to make but felt it is in the best interest of the BCA membership to cancel. Meet registrations that have been received will be refunded within the next two to four weeks. The National Meet Committee and the board look forward to welcoming everyone to the 2022 National Meet in Lisle, Illinois. Your understanding is greatly appreciated. Pat Wojahn, Chair National Meet Committee
  4. That escalated quickly. I think it was still at $6600 this morning. Not sure it has much left in it, but who knows with some of these.
  5. I have never been one to need AC in my classic cars. I also don’t live in Florida, but summers in VA can be pretty bad. I like to roll down the windows and go.
  6. Yeah, there are a few that seem to always have the same listings over and over. Must be selling other things in other places.
  7. I was looking at that listing last night. Appears to be really clean.
  8. There are several dealers on eBay, like this seller, that seem to always have the same vehicles listed over and over again. I wonder how they make any money if they aren’t selling anything.
  9. There is a lot to like about this 57 Super. I would love to drive it, dent and all. It adds character.
  10. That’s a good idea...I have posted things in Facebook Groups so that someone can tear it apart and turn me off on it. Or, maybe someone else just buy it so I don’t!
  11. Maybe a pinned "Reattas For Sale" thread would be a good thing to have. As Mr. Earle said, it seems to work for the Riviera forum.
