  1. Yes. Thank You Bill for your dedication and all your hard work that you put into the BCA and your position. Get well soon, and Best wishes to a speedy recovery !!
  2. Miracles still happen !! Happy to report that I finally received my Issue of the RIView in today's mail ! Have got to love the U.S. Pony Express mail system and its carriers. Only took 5 1/2 weeks to get mail delivered to the Midwest. I think they need to get either new fresh or more horses to do the job, as mine obviously tired out on the journey ! I My faith and sarcasm stems from the fact that during this time they also failed to get my medicare supplement check delivered on time, and it has now cost me an add'l $35 to issue a stop payment on that check, because the new bill arrived wanting this month and last month payment.
  3. Happy to report I finally received my Issue of the ROA RIView in today's mail. Got to love our Pony Express mail system and its carriers ! Only took 5 1/2 weeks to get the mail here to the Midwest !
  4. Was wondering who else has not yet received their May/June copy of the RIView ?? Went to the local post office today to inquire and was nonchalontly told "we deliver the mail when we receive it." Was then told it was probably due to the Covid Virus because some stations are closed due to people calling in sick. Was my issue put in quarantine ?? lol. I have already been in contact with Ray and he told me the issue was mailed from the printer on April 23rd. Find it hard to believe it takes over a month to get mail delivered unless they're still using the "Pony Express". And I believe even they were faster. This has been happening more frequently than I like with delivery of the RIView and BCA Bugle. Just curious who else is still waiting.
  5. Was just wondering who else has not yet received their May/June Riview ? Went to local P.O. today and was nonchalantly told they deliver the mail when they receive it. Had no reasons other than to blame things on the Covid Virus, claiming some stations are closed because of people calling in sick. I have already spoken to Ray, and was told the issue was shipped from the printer April 23rd. This isn't the first time I have had problems with my local P.O. delivering the RIView and BCA Bugle on time each month comes out.
  6. Thanks Ed-- Have to check w/this yard to see if they still have car-- Hammond, iN isn't that far from me- 15-18 miles to State line.

  13. Paul- Thanks for coming down from the Far Northwestern surburbs of Chi-town. We were glad to have you and Donna in attendence. Hope you enjoyed yourselves. You guys are always welcome at any of the Chicagoland events. Sorry I didn't have much time to spend chatting with you guys, but when one runs the show & judging, ones plate is pretty much full for really getting out and enjoying the show & mingling. We had a beautiful day-- Couldn't have asked for a prettier Fall day for a car show. For the record we had 104 cars "officially" registered. I know off at least 5 more that never made it up to the registration table. This was our final Dealer Car Show for the season. This one is now our oldest & longest running Dealer Shows. This year marked our 15th year of doing shows with Marquardt Buick/GMC, and it looks good for the extended future as the dealer has comitted for next year. They really are a great bunch to work with, and supply all the food, drinks & awards. Makes my running of the show run just a tad bit easier. Was sorry to see you guys left before the awards were handed out, but I understand, with the drive back to the Far Northwestern suburbs., that it would be rather late when you got home. By the way, your travels were appreciated and I have a "Long Distance" award to get to you. Just an FYI for ya-- The red WILDCAT GS Convert formally belonged to our LATE longtime Chicagoland member Jim Schilf. The Yellow 'CAT GS belongs to Steve Ledger. The tourquise '65 Riv GS belongs to member Bill Grupp- received the Dealers Coice Award. Again, Thanks for coming down.
  14. @ Derek-- There's part of the problem-- 1) you is a Canuckistani. 2) and this is your biggest problem-- you don't plead the 5th-- YOU DRINK IT !!! I see we have more teaching to do in So Bend--Paul & I have our work cut out for us. A week just isn't enough time. You'll learn eventually--- LOL !!!
