Danvers, Mass. photos

Recommended Posts

Returned from Danvers and wanted to say some thanks:

To Start, Thanks to the Lord for a safe journey, great weather, and fixing my A/C which works pretty darn good. Also to my sweetheart wife ( Linda) who wound up not feeling too good but insisted I go and participate in the meet.

Next, Thank you to the Minute Man Chapter for a great show, and John Schieb and Mr. Earl for an fun filled Forum Breakfast. This was a highlight of the trip.

Then to all the members I met and talked to over the last two days I was there. You all are special and a great group!

A special note to Roberta, Know we are with you and praying that Dad ( and Mom too) improves substantially, soon!

I don't know if this picture will work right or not. I hope it does, and I hope it will make each of you feel like you were a part of the event.

( ps: if you don't know, click the bar at the top of the picture two times for a magnified view.)

(pss: if you look in the top left corner of the pictures you will see the back line of another parking lot which I understand was completely full during the high hours of the show)

Hope to meet more of you all in Charlotte NC next year!

I just transferred about 1.5 GB from two of the cameras...and we have a third with us. I'm having trouble with the external mouse, and editing photos may have to wait until I can deal with that or get another mouse. Flight is supposed to start boarding in about 10 minutes or so, so I'd better start shutting down.

This thread will be expanded when I have some time, a mouse, and greater Internet speed. I know we have a number of photos from the Boston tour on Wednesday as well.

Jeff Mortons 1915 C-24 Roadster. A delightful Automobile. Jeff took home a well deserved Silver for his fine example of this Buick model.

A 1917 Buick D-34, And, I believe a 1911 Model 26 that was in the Driven Class. Two Sweet little Red Roadsters. :cool: Dandy Dave!

One of the Best Running 29 McLaughlin Buick Roadsters I have ever seen. Very nice and original automobile. The Fellow that owns this is a decendent of the McLaughlin family and a wonder fellow to get to know. We were on the, Pre War After Tour together. He does not trailer this car and has driven it all over North America and Canada to many BCA Meets. :cool: Dandy Dave!

Here are some more from the Minuteman Chapter

Buick Club Of America National Meet

Big ups for that spread!

Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!

Some of the shots looking down the row of like Buick's were really neat!

I tell you, the Landau and 54 Skylark were tops in my book but that 53 Skylark will linger in my thoughts as I go to bed tonight.

Felt almost as if I was there!

Thanks for the pics , Brian. It was a fine meet. Good people and beautiful cars. I'm disappointed to see there were no pics showing the 1974-1998 Rivieras located in the "back forty". Hope someone will post some if they have them. Congratulations on your elevation to BCA President. Your enthusiasm will be a great asset to the club.

There were about 3 or 4 - 82 - 84 Riv Convertibles and at least 1 two door hard top of the same vintage in the mix. If I knew, I would have taken some photos for you. Dandy Dave!

I believe there were 19 Rivieras registered...I think at least one for most of the generations. Unfortunately, class "O" got forgotten when the show field was configured so they ended up in the back forty. There were a number of Senior Gold's awarded which goes to show that we keep them in pretty good shape. The important thing to remember though is that we all had a great time at the meet...saw old friends and met many new ones.

Oh, and don't forget...RIV'S RULE!!

Dandy Dave: Saw those pics. Just wanted to note to others browsing this forum that there were many more Rivieras there than were pictured. I had the pleasure of being parked next to Dave Shipman's 92 Midnight Blue. Stunning car.

Thanks also for sharing your C36 with alll who were there. Not very often one can get up so close to one of these oldies to watch and hear it run.

I uploaded photos to Snapfish here:

Unfortunately there was a smear on my camera lens I did not see until almost all the photos were taken. Must have forgotten to lick my fingers after the awesome hamburgers the hotel was serving next to the show field !

Yup, Tunned up that 96 year old car myself! :D Tis far better to open the hood and dazzle them with brilliance, than to try to baffle the crowd with BS. ;) I'm glad to share that dazzeling 37 HP 4 Cylinder with gearheads everywhere. After all, that open overhead valve engine is what sold me on the car. I'm also ejubelated to report that the Judges decided that the car was worthy of a Bronze Award. You fellows took me by supprize as it is difficult to keep a car this old original, and tour worthy at the same time. I know it has some cosmetic short commings from original, but to just beable to get out on the highway and drive it makes it all worth while. :cool: Thanks, Dandy Dave!
