I really enjoyed the article on the 24's. Great stuff!

It took me a few minutes to realize it was my dash and engine in the

pics. Looking forward to all future issues and in depth articles like this.

Fantastic job! Thanks Pete.

I know it is a relatively small thing, but for me it was distracting every time I saw "Chrylser" (I think it was in the '24 article)...haven't gotten through the entire Bugle...been too busy being depressed about not being able to go fishing.

From what I have read, it looks nice and I really enjoy the in-depth year-specific articles...I'm missing a couple of pages, but was elated to discover a 3 Bugle edition devoted to 1929s in a box of old Bugles I got from Ewing...I think it was 1974...I probably didn't even know what a Buick was back then shocked.gif

I got mine Friday, pretty much the normal time.

A great job, Pete! (And I think I know who "Ed in Rowlett" is!) It's one thing to have a "picture book" publication, but another one to have some real "meat" and information on a wide range of vehicles in it. PROGRESS! It's those "learning" and "awareness" articles that help put more real "value" in the BCA membership (especially for those that might not be able to make it to national meets/local or regional shows, or desire to be in a chapter, or are too far away from the nearest chapter).

Enjoy!

And I figured, I'd get mine today, now that I have already enjoyed 'The Old Guy's' copy, but no, it didn't show up!

I almost asked my PO people on Saturday when I was there mailing a package, but they were too tied up selling .02 stamps!

This crazy when others got there's in Dec, and I think the PO people must be reading it, or they are sitting on it somewhere, the contract with the mailing house says they must be delivered within 10 days of recieving at USPS, that USPS policy.

Adam, did you get yours yet??

I got mine today, I figured mine was late because of my change of address.

The one thing I loved about it was the "note to restorers"advice in the column. The article was informative for novices without being boring and for advanced folk without being above (my) their head. Also, I like the advisors page. Great stuff, Pete.

I just wonder why he would do the 71's, everyone knows they experimented in 71 and got them right in 72 crazy.giftongue.gifwink.gifgrin.gif

The same can be said for the 1973's. (over the 72's). I know it's just personal taste but I prefer the 73 Boattail over the 1st 2 years and the 73 full size Buick front end treatment over the 72's and I've owned both years Centurions.

It's all good. I learned a heck of lot on 24 Buicks, wish the article could have been longer even.

Okay, guys, here's my two bits. I bet Keith knew that I couldn't let his statement slip by unanswered!

It's so unfortunate that GM felt that it needed to tamper with the beauty and integrity of the original '71 design. Here's a car that relied on its simple, elegant form for real style, completely avoiding the tacky styling cliches that make many collectors despise the cars from the '70's. The models that followed just demonstrate that you can't improve upon perfection. smile.gif

[That's the '71 enthusiast talking, but, seriously, I love 'em all -- and they've all got their special attributes. Bottom line is that they're all Buicks and all beautiful.]

Couldn't wait to see which of you (Brain or Adam) responded first. I had my bets, wish I had placed the wager. wink.gif
