Actually, that same jar should be in Mr EARLs shed somewhere - would have a nice crust on it by now. I know Mr Earl didn't try it - RITA wouldn't let him and I believe she was quiet rude about what it looked like. But then you may be out of luck as it may well have been used to grease front wheel bearings of a '54.

 

Enjoy your get together.

 

 

 

Actually Stuart that jar of Vegemite came in very useful. I was trying to load a junker '54 with locked up front wheels onto my trailer, put a thin layer of Vegemite in the wheel paths and couldn't keep the slack out of the winch cable once the wheels hit that stuff. I'll mix some brake fluid with it next time.

 

and yea gang, y'all do enjoy your get together, MrE won't be making it this year... again..........

If we attend in one car though, we may be a bit late if the boys decide to take in the Hagerty Test Garage...should know in the next couple days. That program is listed as 1-4 Friday.

If there is any left after you coat the trailer skids and pack your front wheel bearings could probably try it for breaking in a new cam....sorry to hear you can't make it.

Thanks to Bill Stoneberg for the warning about road construction.

 

Because of the same, even though the manager of the restaurant thinks it may be all done by next week, it is recommended you take the Airport Road option for travel to the Hanoverville Road House Restaurant.  Hope this map opens, but if not, search your favorite map program maps for directions from 808 N. Fenwick to 5001 Hanoverville Road.

Somebody is going to have to navigate me there, mostly cuz I'm not paying attention to these details.

I have room for three easily!

 

I can read a map, can you pick me up in front of the house.?

No one would ever expect a 55 Buick station wagon as the get away car!  The best part is no one would ever be able to describe it, and todays cops would be looking all day long for a Cadillac Escalade!

TTT...  Just a reminder.  Even if you did not indicate a desire to attend, the event is still open to anyone who cares to attend.  No reservation is required,  just an attitude of friendship.  The Flea Market swap is totally optional, although it is the main entertainment.

 

Come on down, and meet your Buick buddies!!!  We'll keep the light on for ya!

 

Safe travels!

Thanks to all who came out for this unofficial event.  It was a great time!  The Yuenglings was excellent!  And I enjoyed perhaps too many of them. 

There were about 34 people in attendance.  Thanks to Mike for posting that picture. But it did not include the families and friends who also participated.

As usual, the alcohol based gifts were readily exchanged, but there were some other nice gifts too.  Joyce Schramm wound up with "The Can of Spam"  which, by the way expired in 2015, so I recommended she treat that with utmost care.  Don't want that one breaking open due to rough handling.  And, although no one made a Buickman nomination  last year, Larry Schramm did offer one to Dandy Dave, for " Coughing up a rod" which allowed him to get the 15 truck back together in time for the Meet!  So we awarded Dave Brennan the Award with a round of hoots, hollars and applause!  Congrats DD.

 

I'll try to post some pictures taken by Parker Tom, whom I had the pleasure to sit with.

Sorry I missed another good time, but just too many things to do in a short stretch of time.  But since Bea and I where there since Sunday, we got to do some other unique things, like a real PA German dinner and scrapple.  Tried to get up there, but did not make it.  Better luck next year.
