Great photos, John. We really should plan a small fall gathering next year. Any others interested?

I took a nice fall shot of the Reatta. Great setting John.

There is something about the sunlight once we get into September. They always look better:

My wife and I had a talk this morning. Health problems started in February and it looks like the cars will have to go. I will probably wait until spring to offer them for sale, although someone who really wanted one could preempt the schedule.

It appears that many of us have had similar ideas! We have had a fantastic late summer / autumn here in the Pacific Northwest, and the leaves are just beginning to turn here in the Puget Sound area near Seattle. I shot these photos last Thursday. There's not much fall color, but it was fun to shoot some photos!

John, your photos of the '56 with that historic church are fantastic!

Bernie,

Now that's no way to be! You start giving up the things that keep you going and you stop going! Still time to think about it! Keep your head and your spirits up! Matt

Just want to say thanks for the positive comments on the 56. I do love that car. But I love the other photos too. The reatta looks awesome against the trees Keith, and Dan, your Roadmaster is one of my favorite cars. But no one can dismiss Brians Centurion. Sweeeeettttt! And Beries 60 is just so great! Plus you got that great big picture too. How did you do that Bernie?

Don, I thin kI can speak for the folks here, lets see one of your 62. I hope there's some opportunities left this weekend. Heavy rains today threaten to lead to early winter photos instead of peak fall ones.. LOL

John, here is the Riviera in a fall picture from last year. To make it big I think I link from a URL and then uncheck the local reference box. I don't know how it works but it does.

Went to an All Auto and Truck Show in Canton, MA today (10/20/12). As you can see, we don't have peak colors quite yet...should happen within the next 7-10 days, though.

Can't believe the difference in the status of the foliage Dave. The Riv looks great though. Inbetween today's thunderstorms, I managed to snap these few.

More "earth tones" than autumn colors but it's it's not even long sleeve weather here yet.

Went to the Rooster Bush BOPC show in Lenoir, NC today. Took a ride up the Blue Ridge parkway as well. Leaves are great, and the car is really photogenic in the mountains. :D

Everyone's "Buicks in the Fall" pictures are certainly of calendar quality! I agree that there should be a thread like this every year.

John..particularly great pic's of the GS within the fall leaves. Canton, MA is just 5 to 8 miles southwest of Boston and part of the South Shore/Cape Cod region. Western MA is already full of colors.

Lamar.."Black Beauty" looks great. Sorry to hear that its been sold, but I'm sure its in good hands. There are very few BCA and even ROA members that collect this 7th generation "Baby Riv". You know I happen to be one of them (I've owned two).
