'60 Electra takes a Trophy at a 1,800 car cruise


Recommended Posts

My 43,500 mile Electra sedan got noticed at Manchester Connecticut's Cruise on Main Street, one of the larger such events in New England. Must be because she was the ONLY 59/60 Buick there. Thought you guys would want to know that you don't have to drive a Chevelle or a GTO to win Trophy, an old-maid Buick pulled it off.

Thanks guys. Turns out I was one of 28 winners out of 2,600 cars. I was selected by one of the sponsors, AAA, who thought it represented the car the AAA member of 1960 aspired to own. Sounds corny, but I'll take it.

The car is running pretty much like new. Still don't have the A/C vacuum/duct valves working right and I am having trouble with the refrigerating side too, but I'm having too much fun driving it to tie it up in shops anymore. I'm also having trouble keeping ball joint boots on, dealing with that on Friday.

Plan to be in Vernon CT, hope to see a few of you there.
