buick5563 Posted June 20, 2015 Share Posted June 20, 2015 (edited) Once again I will be posting some info from the Great Race as part of the #99 1931 Buick Shaeffer 8 race team. Driven by Pat Brothers. Navigated by Pat Brothers. I will bring everybody up to speed if they haven't already been following some of my shenanigans.My son Woody and I have already been out for about ten days, leaving Austin in my 55 Century wagon. We hit the Buick Nationals in Springfield and then headed north to St. Louis. We had hoped to hit a few baseball games, but after one Cardinals game, we had to cancel heading to Chicago due to flooding. We met up with the Great Race crew in Kirkwood, Mo. the beginning city. The race goes down the length of Route 66 and ends in Santa Monica next Saturday. Woody and I will be driving the support truck with my wagon in the trailer. We will bring it out every night so that we can get pics along Route 66 and so we will have easy transportation every night. We are already over 1,000 miles in the Buick and will be driving home from Cali to Texas at the end just to maintain "non trailer-queen" status .In addition to the Buick Racecar, there is a 63 Wildcat, and a 56 Century convertible that I have seen so far. I took a pic of my wagon next to the Cat just to remind everybody why I am 5563...More pics and stories will be coming.
