  1. Do vintage Buicks at vintage service stations in the present day count? A few from my recent Route 66 road trip: Baxter Springs, KS, Commerce, OK, and Mount Olive, IL.
  2. Back when trunks were trunks. The average person didn't seem to need pickups in those days.
  3. I had a great time at my first BCA gathering and was particularly gratified to meet some of you. Got home yesterday afternoon after putting 3,343 trouble-free miles on the Skylark since I left home on 06/22. The Skylark is fine, my back not so much.
  4. I hit my goal earlier this week somewhere in MO or KS along Route 66. Right now I'm at 3,033 miles since January 1st. I guess I'm covered for the next 1,012 years, assuming it works that way.
  5. Rolled in too late to pick up my registration so I'll have to do that in the morning. I'm staying down in Ft. Wayne at the Spring Hill Suites, about 12 minutes from the park. I'm using up some of my gazillion Marriott points. Hope to see some of you tomorrow.
  6. I'll be arriving mid- to late Thursday afternoon. Am in Tulsa right now.
  7. I drove the Skylark 355 miles along Route 66 between Fairview Heights, IL and Carthage, MO. Got up a little while ago at the Boots Court and will be looking for breakfast shortly before heading to my next overnight stop at Catoosa, OK.
  8. You may indeed be prepared, but you won't be prepared for the particular thing that goes wrong at that moment. Now that's Murphy at his finest.
  9. Wow! I have red-green deficiency color blindness, but even I can tell that's green!
  10. The two ladies seem happy enough, but the gent is probably thinking about making the payments.
  11. He's being brought up right!
  12. I'm not terribly worried about the energy companies. Some of the fossil fuels they don't sell as gasoline will go to the oil, natural gas, and coal-fired generating plants that produce the electricity needed to charge the electric cars that don't depend on fossil fuels. And now back to our regularly scheduled program (programme for you, Dei): My upcoming trip down a portion of US Route 66 and the return through Auburn will go far toward hitting the 2021 miles goal. I leave on the 22nd.
  13. @38Buick 80CBrian, thanx for your response. now I need to get my registration in ASAP! @JohnD1956I agree that doing only the main car show would miss out on a lot, but I had no intention of limiting my activities to that. My question was only in regard to the possibility of Friday parking on the grounds. I plan to arrive Thursday night, walk the flea market and take in the other activities on Friday, do the Friday evening thing in Auburn, and then take in the show on Saturday morning.
  14. That's exactly what I would have looked like if I was him doing that then. (Meds haven't kicked in yet, sorry).
