    Indeed a special and generous family-like group here. I have always given V8Buick high praise for its incredible contribution to the Buick hobby and this is just yet one more example that substantiates it. Doesn't happen by accident. Starts at top with good old fashioned Leadership.

    Come on guys, we only need another $1900.00 to reach our goal. Dig deep and "pony up." It will give you a good feeling, I promise.

    Gettin' nervous again with all this money in a paypal account.. so I was happy to be able to transfer the second payment of $5000 to Mike and family this morning.

    Got that account balance down to a more manageable level..

    We will keep the fundraiser open thru this month, so everyone that wishes to contribute has the opportunity. Around the end of the month we will do a final tally, and I will then forward the remaining funds to Mike and Family..

    Thanks so much to all of you who contributed to this effort, it has made a solid difference in the lives of one of our Buick family members.

    Wow what a deal. All you guys are awesome! This fire deal is not something I wish on anyone. The insurance company is slow to pay and its like they don't want to give me what I really need to get the help paid and the bills paid. I have cleaned out the one stall garage I started in and have started to get a job or 2 in to fix. I cant do any big jobs but smaller stuff is ok. I am not officially behind in my bills thanks to all of you guys. This means a ton. I cannot express how much I appreciate it. God bless you all. Thank you!
