    My wife and I visited Gary and Sandy earlier this year to discuss and get started on an engine build. I was in shock and aaaaw when I seen the cars he had. It’s like a Buick museum up there. It takes a lot of work to get and keep multiple cars up let alone at the level his are and there driven not just sitting on display. Hats off to you Gary for your continued contribution to the Buick community.

    Nice collection Gary. Hopefully sometime this year I will get all mine out for a photo shoot. However mine are all projects.

    I think the Procharged '71 GS455 will be up for sale next! I would love to have it but no funds for a car right now!

    One of the many I shouldn't have sold. I needed to sell one - this black car was together, running/ operating, etc versus the 69 Stage 4 speed hardtop, which was apart... So....

    I'll contact you first if going to be sold. Improvements were made to it.

    That's a cool shot Gary.

    I was in awe of Thumper when I first saw it at Thompson in the 80s.

    I'm glad you recreated it. Only thing it needs is big tires to complete the look.

    Thank you, Thumper is going to have more track time this year,if we ever get to race,yeah its only mini tubbed so 12" tires are probably the max. Power is controlled ( lol ) so probably won't need them heh heh. maybe take it off the stop for a run or two.

    Hey Gar, good guess, you knew the 69 stage2 wasn't going anywhere. You've known that car since 1969.We lined up a couple times with your beautiful 65 GS.

    AWESOME collection Gary! I'd be proud too:D
    The only collection I've had that resembled that were my Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars from way back;)

    Wow Gary, that's a heck of a "used car lot" you have there. Must be a tough decision to decide which keys to grab every morning.

    Good idea, we see descriptions of peoples cars in their signature but it would be great to see them up close and personal.
