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

Recommended Posts

Around the neighborhood in the '14, and just a bit more with the '37 (but drove the '54 Caddy 170 miles between the garage Tour and the Crawfish Boil).

Drove the 39 to the Sauder Village Antique Car Festival on May 18. Only for stock cars 1942 and older. Cars ranged from a curved dash Olds to a 1942 Crosley. 80+ cars. Hudson Club and Willys Club brought several nice examples. How about a 40 Graham Hollywood with the factory supercharged engine. Sunday, I visited a chapter member's newly acquired 38 Century and went for ride. Nice weekend. Next Monday we'll have the 65 in the Annual Memorial Day Parade.

I know what you mean. Does a Monday count if it is a Holiday. If so, me, the missus and Miss Terry took the Century to breakfast and a 50 mile ride in the country for Memorial Day. Sorry no pictures. So I guess it really didn't happen then eh....

Any day of the week is valid. Just last nite, on a ten mile jaunt in the GS i had to reprimand the rear tires for smoking. They are just two years old and way too young for that sort of thing!

I didn't drive the Roadmaster. I did buy new plug-wires, rotor button and distributor cap . To replace those contaminated by the burst power steering "O" ring....

I spent some time on Sunday getting the Riviera out of hibernation, a thorough cleaning and checking of all the systems. We drove down to the local Sonic for a couple of Blasts and as we were sitting there we saw the rain headed toward us. We were about 15 miles from home. I got the Riviera back in the garage about 90 seconds before the rain came. All systems were good to go and the air is still blowing cold from the last charge 3 years ago.

I got a call to use my Special in a movie last night.

My car has been used in movies before, but I got to drive it on camera today. It was such a close shot that I had to "go to wardrobe".

Here is a shot of what I saw while they were setting up.

Hi Guy's,

Sorry for the late post.

Took the "Baby" from Buena Vista 90 miles down to Canon City for the "Abby" car show last Saturday. Came in second behind a '47 Chrysler woodie (fresh off the rotisserie).

Proceeded another 20 miles on Sunday down to Florence, Colorado for the "merchants day" car show. No prizes here, just a nice display.

Drove the "Baby" 130 miles back up the canyon Sunday night, jumped in the Lincoln @ 5:00 PM and drove to Salt Lake City (9.5hrs).

Sales calls Monday and Tuesday, and drove to Atascadero, Calif. to tour "Bob's Automobilia" in the PM and drove to Ontario, Calif. Wednesday night.

Sales meeting @ the foundry all day Thursday and till Friday noon. I did visit Karp's resleeving in Upton, Calif. Friday PM and spent an hour or so with Ron Karp. Very nice gentleman. He did my wheel and M/C cylinders in 304 stainless about 3 weeks ago. A great job on all................

Drove home Friday PM and Saturday AM.

Spent Sunday "fluffing my pillow" !!!!!!!!!!

Mike in Colorado

What else, Sam's in Holley. Lunch on the square:

And about an 80 mile ride; getting close to 500 miles already this year.

We turned onto one side road and I asked my wife if she remembered the Chevy I bought at the house on the corner. It was the dirtiest car I ever bought on the inside, an older couple with a little white dog.

I remembered cleaning the front carpets with a nap brush and lifting up lots of white hair. While I did it I kept thinking "I sure hope this is the dog's hair." I had seen the wife!

102 round trip to the Hemmings Cruise In tonite. This GS is such an easy driving car it's almost scary. On the way home it looked like one of the cruise cars hit a deer. Too much commotion to see what was going on but I think it was the late model Avanti.

I haven't seen a Buick (new or old) in 9 months...been driving a Nissan that would probably fit in the trunk of my Electra.

Drove my 38 Special to a BCA Northwest three club picnic yesterday. We had a beautiful day for a drive with 7 other Buicks. My only issue was not using the back roads to enjoy the ride. Oh, and I did an on-the-road oil change on the way to and from the picnic.

Today I will attack the side cover oil leak that was responsible for the oil change....

Met with local Buick friends for breakfast and a little cruise around Tacoma. Robert drove his recently acquired '67 Wildcat, Jorge drove his new '65 Electra 225, and I drove my '71 Centurion. A few photos from our little get-together:

I took my modified 41 Limited out and LITE them up, a bit of smoke, and black marks. Felt like a teenager again.

Boy does it love 80 MPH. FUN is GOOD!
