Raise your hand if you drove at least one old Buick this weekend

I took the '65 wildcat convertible out for a drive today when I got home from work.

Just me, the car, and some winding roads.

Ahhhh.

Hey. Lincoln! You are in there all alone. Your garage buddies have all been out enjoying the sunny day!

Does pushing around a new acquisition count?  My back was sore before, but today I had trouble just getting out of bed....

Third time is the charm. I finally got the 1925 to our Freysinger Buick GMC show at Mechanicsburg PA. 2013 Overheated.

2014 The clutch died. So we had a 100 mile round trip and no issues except when the water pump packing nuts loosened on the way up. Note to self. Check them every 25 miles or so. She got first place in class and oldest car.(It helps when you only have 2 entries!) Now if I can only get the 1937 happy again after our aborted trip to Springfield.

Larry, you are my hero!  100 miles in the 25 sure beats the 24 miles I dropped on the 56 tonight and the 20 I put on the 72 this weekend. Although I still had a ton of fun driving them both.

Well, even though Larry is hero material in this thread, I am glad to report that I got the GS out this AM for breakfast with Ed ( Summer67) and Gary ( Grannys70skylark).  80 Mile round trip over a road I knew about but never was on before.  Ed commented later that he felt like we were back in Wyoming on the twisting narrow S turn filled mountain pass.  After a great breakfast at the Ambrosia Diner in Glenns Falls, NY we went to this home garden and snapped the picture below.  Almost an acre and a half filled with flowering garden.  What a place:

About 120 "old" Rivieras showed up at the annual ROA event held this year in St. Charles, IL.  Long distance awards went to a '71 driven 1700 miles from Wyoming, and a '63 that was driven about 2100 miles from Ely, NV via 'the ranch' in Oklahoma before heading out to St. Charles. Then they had to turn around and head back.

 

This is a link to the ROA forum that shows pictures of most of the cars.

Enjoy.

Took the Skylark out with my wife on Saturday night for an ice cream run to a nearby creamery in Bellvale, NY. The place has decent ice cream and killer views. I was more interested in driving the car than eating, but the ice cream provided a good excuse for an hour long round trip. It was also my first time out at night with the car and I learned that a couple of instrument panel lights need replaced.

About 150 miles today. My great grandson, Zak, turns four. Had to go to Lawton Ok for that, did I not? Took the long way home.

What a shame no one there had a camera!

Interesting, apparently the big kahuna doesn't even drive his fitty four cause we know he has a camera..   :D

 

Meanwhile, its hard to resist that big wheel:

I changed out the plugs..

It runs like a new car. 

I drove to a local cruise in

In the 100degF heat, the 322 got a bit above normal on the temp gauge, But, I didn't lose any coolant..
