    I know personally edouard is cool, I reached out to him a month and half ago on gs65. But still come back, we need you here too.

    Bill, we are all brothers and brothers fight. I know I wanted to kick a couple guys asses here once in a while. But then I'm sharing laughs and being blessed by them the next day. Come back kid.

    Yachtsman Bill...…He and Pat live in Two Rivers, WI. My wife and I spend the second week of September in Door Co. WI and pass right through Two Rivers on our way there each year. Earlier this year I gave Bill and core support for his `64 Special he was working on and we've been in contact since then. On our way to Door Co. we stopped in to visit with Bill and Pat for about an hour and a half. He's doing fine but has had some had some issues here on V8Buick and was either kicked off or decided to take a break or quit on his own. I didn't want to be nosy so I didn't ask specifically what happened but Bill is Bill and, well, lets face it, he does have a hard time holding back words sometimes :D I'm sure we've all noticed it. Sometimes it's entertaining and other times I have thought to myself that he might be pushing a bit too hard. Anyway, Bill and Pat are really nice people in person and Bonnie and really enjoyed our visit with them. We'll probably do it again next year. It's a shame that things come to this.

    One does not require a thick skin to own a Buick, but with all the torque, it's not to much trouble to carry around.... ;)

    I think some people are vanishing to Farcebook.

    I liked the car stuff on there & of course a lot of people on both places but with different names. It was nice to "see" old friends, etc. too but there was no way for me to avoid the politics. I have a hard time keeping my mouth (keyboard) shut. Already had an aunt unfriend me & we don't really talk anymore and my sister was going to be next so I disabled my account. Haven't really missed it.

    Dano, you are absolutely right about FB. It seems to be primarily a political commentary space now.
    Every time I log on I'm bombarded with political crap - both far right and far left. Everyone is shrieking and hysterical, I don't need or want that.
    I really appreciate that V8Buick keeps all of that off-line - focused on the cars, the engines, the hobby.
    I've gotten so much good help and advice from the members here. I'm finally starting to feel like maybe I have a clue about my old Skylark! And I love seeing everyone else's projects and builds.

    This is the one of the only places to escape it. It creeps in every now and then and fortunately gets shut down (I threw gas on a fire recently to get one shut down). I'm not even crazy about the member(s) who have their political leaning in their avatar. I don't want or need to know.

    Last I heard BadBoattail was being carried off by a buzzard.

    I wandered back in here after that spam-bot infestation from last weekend harvested my email address.

    Got to looking around, and according to my PM’s it was 2010 when I first joined - time flies!

    I used to get more of those “hot chickxxx” emails in the past (not due to my search habits!) and thought those were annoying, but now its AARP, canabliss joint pain meds, Diabetes Miracle Cures, ED fixes, blah blah blah... Really?! What happened?
