Today, Sunday, we are driving our '13 to Erieau, "a drinking town with a fishing problem" beside lake Erie for perch and ice cream.

Enjoying the Pennsylvania sites at the AACA Automobile Museum in Hershey PA and getting ready for the ROA meet in Gettysburg.

As above my wife and I attended the RetroFest Car Show in Chatham, Ontario on Saturday with three other cars driving together from Windsor to Chatham and back.

 

The morning was cool but sunny and soon warmed up to 78 degrees (WITH NO RAIN!!). 

The gang decided to park close to where we entered the downtown area but I went on in to what I thought was an ideal spot to display her in all her well worn glory and dropped the top...

There was much to see walking many blocks back and forth meeting friends and making new ones.

Some Buick highlights:

And what show is not complete without a "second" 1958 Buick but a LIMITED no less...

Having left home at 5:45 am to get there and find a good spot it was a long day but worth every minute.

 

For more pictures and details of the 40th Anniversary of RM/Sotherby's and Chatham's RetroFest Car Show go to my thread Me and My 1958 Buick...

I was co-leader for the 2019 HCCA KISS 1&2 cylinder tour this week with my 1908 Model F Buick.  Click arrows to see all the cars...

Spent the weekend taking care of some mechanical repairs on Goldie in preparation for the trip to Gettysburg this week.  Replaced two bad U-joints in the driveline, and leaky transmission output shaft seal and pan gasket.  Took her for a 25 mile round-trip shakedown and everything seems good to go.  Tomorrow I plan to do a quick detailing and start packing...  ;)

Today I drove my 1937 Buick Century a little over half way from Wilmington, NC to Canton, Ohio for the 36-38 Buick Club tour. We will drive the rest of the way tomorrow. We are spending the night in Princeton, WV after traveling 377 miles today. This car is a survivor and still equipped with a 6 volt system and bias ply tires.

Good on you Matthew.  I can’t speak to your car, but I know that some cars seem to like bias ply tires better than others.  Radial tires aren’t the be all and end all, unless perhaps folks insist on overdriving what these cars were designed for in terms of speed and braking ability.  A well-maintained car should do just fine with a 6V system and bias ply tires.

 

Great shot...when I give myself enough time, I do like to stop in at the visitor info centres.  It’s a shame so few off them are left on the smaller roads rather than just the Interstate routes.

Drive'em with the equipment they came with!   One best way to get the experience of how it was.   Enjoy your trip!

Attended a car show at the Tunkhannock, Pa Founders Day event on Saturday.  I had a great day with another friend who also had his 41’ Cadillac convertible out.  As long as the days are like this.....you will see me somewhere on the roads in NEPA

These were from a car show on the Hudson River at Marist College June 15th. Nice show and a beautiful location. Forgot to post last week. About 80 miles roundtrip.

 We drove home today, and I think it was about 260 miles, but the whole weekend was 769 miles in the '41 Roadmaster, and it ran perfect the whole trip.

We arrived for the 36-38 Buick Club tour this afternoon. As we rolled into the host hotel, we have now travelled a total of 665.5 miles in the 1937 Century over the past two days. The club tour starts in the morning. Attached is a quick photo that I took today to give you an idea about the type of terrain that I was driving through most of today.

Matt:

 Sorry we could not join you again this year. Hopefully next time. We did drive our 37 all last week to our Mason-Dixon show and to meet up with the Heils and Schramms  at the VMCCA nickel tour outside of Gettysburg. That one was only 28 miles from home.  Larry also came to our house with his diagnostic scope to trouble shoot our 1925 standard  as to why it too could not participate on that tour.

 Maybe we could meet up on your way back home as you will have to pass not to far south from Chambersburg.

 We are 2 blocks from route 30 (Lincoln Highway) and 1 mile west of route 81.

 Hope you all have a great week!

Warm June nights are perfect for a ride!  And the GS just keeps making the rides so pleasant

But, tonight was extra special.  With lingering clouds from a late day rain storm, and exceptionally light traffic I finally got a few pictures I have been wanting to get since I moved here 20 years ago.

Hope it counts that the GS got me to this spot tonight! ¬†ūüėČ

 

Yet, there was one additional spot for a Buick sunset

Had a great time touring today with the 36-38 Buick Club and my friend Matt Hinson. Beautiful weather, about 15 awesome Buicks, great tour stops, and a nice drive. All the cars, including ours, performed flawlessly, even on the drive home where it was 85 degrees and we were dicing with rush-hour traffic on the highway. The Limited never missed a beat and got a lot of positive comments from the guys on the tour. Felt good to be among Buick guys for a change. Nice job to everyone who put the tour together (they're still touring tomorrow, but we have to get back to work and our kids). Thanks everyone!

This is why cars have curved rear windows (that's Matt Hinson's 
1937 Century catching the sun at just the right angle).

Oh, and check out the major flooding we're having here in Ohio--LOTS of rain except for today!

Not necessarily the weekend but Almendrón participated in an Amazon TV series scene as the hotel limo bringing Mrs Maisel to the Fountain Bleau, Miami Beach. Not to worry about the decals they had no glue made of pressure sensitive vinyl which easily came off afterwards
