  1. I'll connect you with the guy at the Speedway. Sending you an email.
  2. Charlotte Motor Speedway is celebrating 60 years this weekend and they have a special promotional car for this weekend's Cola-Cola. In 1960 the first pace car for the World 600 was a Buick LeSabre wagon (as we previously determined here and in 2019 they have been loaned by a BCA member a 1960 Buick Invicta wagon which has been vinyl wrapped to look like the original pace car. Check it out So the race starts at 6PM Sunday on Fox. I'm sure there is also some pre-race coverage before that so check it out and keep an eye out for a Buick leading the way.

  3. This is a surprising statement and one that doesn't reflect a commitment to the club expected of a potential BOD member. Perhaps this is mistakenly poorly worded, as it is understandable sometimes BOD members have important commitments outside of the club. But as written, it sounds like that you and Joe only care about the club if elected. Respectfully, that attitude, if meant as it is written, will not serve the membership well. I suggest if the intention was otherwise that you more carefully consider your choice of words in the future.
  4. I was there!!...in Indy at least... I really thought about going over there. I wanted the '42 Limited, I would have settled for the sedanette or the '38 of course. I figured any of them would be a several hundred thousand dollar car even at the $26K the sedanette sold for cause I either would to have bought a building or got a divorce so either way it was gonna cost me a lot more than the value of the car...😂 I went over to the Speedway instead and drank beer in the suite for free...all worked out...
  5. I feel like that's a steal. The interior was done paint/body and engine compartment needed attention but that's kinda the easy part.
  6. FYI...It's not the 54th national meet...it is the 49th... You can count them here http://www.buickclub.org/national-meets/ It IS the 54th anniversary of the BCA but the first meet wasn't til 71 and the skipped 74
  7. He has a Special...the 40 series. There are only 6 1938 Model 87's known to exist. 2 in SoCal, 1 in Michigan, 1 last seen in Maine, 1 in Venezuela and one in ... my garage...
  8. That's a one of 14 produced 1940 Model 87... a model only made from '38 to '40... and there was a '38 and '40 at the show. From the cowl back the body's are virtually identical.
  9. @MrEarl posted one picture in I just love this picture thread, but I haven't seen one, but perhaps in the AACA section instead of the Buick section
  10. Counted... the only condition that he is not allowed to have the Riv is that he now has several Riv's
  11. All, For those coming to the Spring Charlotte Autofair and AACA Meet, as we have for several years now, the Carolina Chapter BCA will be hosting a dinner at Ciro's Italian Restaurant 8927 J M Keynes Dr, Charlotte, NC 28262 at 7pm on Friday Night of Autofair April 5th. All BCA members ( and their non member guest are welcome to join) so feel free to forward this to anyone you know may be attending. I just ask that you let me know if you plan to attend and how many in your party so I can have adequate seating pre-set at the restaurant. This event always draws a large crown and we have a good time and great food, so if you are coming for Autofair please join us.
  12. Take his word folks...he is the co-chair... This way I have someone to blame if it is 104 again...
  13. Please do post how many BCA Nationals you've been to I've been to 32 and the 50th will be my 35th.
