Welcome Josh and Adam. Glad you dropped in. Looking forward to participating with ya. As always, pictures are fun, and hope you'll consider joining the BCA. Adam, in the first week of August there will be a BCA Regional Meet in Minnesota. It would be a good opportunity to take a look at some 55's.

Sounds like a great excuse to hitup the great river road for a long weekend ride with the bike, thanks for the heads up.

I'll look for you there, but tell me, please, what is the Great River Road

...what is the Great River Road

Sure thing, it's a road that follows down and skips across the Mississippi river starting around Hastings, MN I believe and I've been wanting to ride from there south for a day or something to go thru all the bluffs. I've seen some of it from on the river and can only imagine how amazing it would look from the scenic road.

Hello, I'm Adam and have been obsessed with finding a 1955 4 door hardtop Buick for the last two years. I live in the rust belt capital it seems, so my search has been across the US and leaving me to find a car that seems to be close to the cost of getting it home.

I like to ride sport bike (currentlly a Honda '98 VFR800), offroad trail riding with the 400EX when I can and the rest of my time is spent at work or with my young family.

It's a tease to want one of these land yachts, as I'm sure getting one road ready can be almost as costlly as aquiring it. I hope to learn from you folks and maybe get to pull the trigger sooner than later and get my girls in a car to remember like my dad did with his 1962 Sedan Deville.

Hi Adam, welcome! You'll find lots of knowledgable people on this forum.

Check out this 55 four door HT in Idaho:

Looks like we won't be anywhere near that Great River Road. It does look to be an awesome drive though.

Hello everyone my name is Pat, last summer I became the owner of a 1970 GS convertible, trying to make contact with others who appreciate the excitement owning such a car creates, and forums to ask questions on, I joined the northeast Ohio group as well, hope to meet some of you, Pat

Welcome GS1455 and slappy1eye. The 70 GS is definitely a desired car. Meanwhile, what are you working on Slapp1eye? In any case, welcome to both of you.

HI Mike, I have been hanging around over on the Olds section for some time but just recently walked onto a 50 Buick and need to solicit some help in determining the value of the same. Don't really know much about the older Buicks but sure I will get enlightened shortly!

Hi, I'm just a normal guy with a wife, 2 daughters in college and a 63 Buick Special, 64 Mercury Comet Caliente - only 52K miles, 78 Eldorado - with only 21K miles, 65 Mustang - (the wife's car) and my latest, a 1937 Packard Six Touring Sedan. Looking forward to chatting with you all about my Buick and other cars. My 63 Special is really hard to find parts for, and help with that would be appreciated.

Dennis

Greetings Dennis, welcome to this Forum. What model Buick do you have? Pictures are always appreciated and ogled. How about starting a thread in the Me and My Buick Forum here, so we can find out what parts you need?

Hello to all, my name is Steve I love the old car hobby. I cannot remember if I have every introduced myself so here it is. I now have time for my projects with the kids out of the house. I have been looking around on this site and I am impressed with the cars and projects. I look forward to driving my projects; I try to add about 2K miles a year in my one car, which is complete. I now have the floor cut out of my 53 Buick, floor braces repaired and going the other way. I will post a few photos when I figure out how.

Steve

post-100837-143142522469_thumb.jpgHello everyone! My name is Elise, and I just purchased a 1937 Buick Century. I live in Las Vegas. My fiancé has a Cobra kit car and I bought this so that I would have my own car to take to the cruises and car and coffee outings. The car seems to be in amazing shape. I do not plan a complete restoration as I really appreciate the condition she is in now.

Howdy all! Due to my lousy health, I've recently found myself at a point where I can no longer perform major restorations, so I sold my muscle car projects and parts and found a Buick special survivor from Mexico to drive and play with. She's been loved but needs some experienced care now, and I'm just the one to do it. Thanks for adding me to your forum, I'll need some help with this old girl..

Hello,

My name is Jason, my wife and I have just acquired a 1957 Buick Century 4dr Hardtop. It was my father in-laws, and he passed away 12 years ago. The car was just sitting in a shed collecting dust. So I brought it out of hibernation, and polished it up, and we are loving it! It is in near mint condition and it only has a few things that need to be done to it before we can take it on a long road trip. We are planning on coming to Portland to take in the 2014 Buick event. I have been reading this forum for awhile now, and look forward to participating it in too.
