    Mike the GNX owner? Cool!

    I was quite jealous of his aftermarket cupholder armrest addition. How Buick couldn't add cupholders I'll never know..:mad:

    John, Deb, Alex, Scott. Thanks for organizing and hosting this event. It's a lot of work, especially due to the fact you had to reschedule from last week due to the weather. Doing events can be a thankless task, but you guys always step up. It's was a great time, lot of great Buicks, and Buick people. Food was excellent. Your hospitality is the beyond great. Already looking forward to next year.

    "up north" Steve, your the first to spot the cops. Only 5 cars had showed up, and then 2 cop vehicles. I was like uh oh!!! As they walked towards us I extended my hand to the first cop and said, "Hi, I'm John Carroll." The cop walked right past me. The younger cop laughed and said, "We're here to look at the Buick candy." Very cool! They were car nuts. But then... the younger cop says, "Sure are a lot of posi burnouts on the street!" I said, Big 'ole diesel trucks." The cop said, "Ya, those are big tire burnouts." LMAO!!!

    I think you meant to write "a lot of beautiful cars", but "a lot of beautiful car" actually describes the Electra 225 pretty well.

    LMAO!!! Dang Steve, at first when you wrote your post I thought you were really rude to Jim, who is a great guy. But..... When I got to the end I loved the twist in words. And you are correct. That Electra was beautiful, and the local owner is a really cool guy!
    Steve... Wish you could have stayed longer. A bunch of people did a cruise in your direction. Hector went and my son went with the Turbo cars. They went down to Boca to a place off Palmetto Park Rd. and 441. My son took my car and it actually got an award??? I think it was Peoples Choice. My son took the little trophy, but my Grandson told me about them calling my name! And my car won! That's funny. My car is not great. It's not even good. They probably thought it was an old Chevelle!!!
    Jim... We missed you!!! The Get Together was interesting this year. Kinda mello, but real nice! It might have been the cops that kept checking out the cars? The cops were real nice though, and loved Buicks. No burnouts though this year. Sorry Steve, up north! :)>
