    Tomorrow's it!!!!! I'll be there rain or shine. My kitty's tri-tone paint (rust, primer, and paint) will hold up just fine. Besides...she's a work in progress and when I got her she didn't even run. I'm looking forward to it. :beers2:

    The turnout was great considering the weather. Over 100 cars. It was terrific meeting more Buick guys and especially putting faces to some names here on V8.

    Chris (cjp69) won best of class with his 55. Congratulations Chris! :beer

    Sorry, no pictures. I left the house at 4:45AM and forgot my camera.

    oh ok

    I am not looking for another car heck we are having hard enough problems finding things for our Skylark vert as is lol.

    But we saw it & we knew the show was starting to break up alittle.



    If anyone is intrested there is a Blue GS 70 hard top (white top) over at Promax for sale.

    I am pretty sure I had Rick go and look at this car for me last summer, down in SE Washington when it was priced at $3k. Rick and I didn't even feel like it was worth offering $2,500, so we didn't. The paint job was a quicky, real orange peeling and spotty. If it wasn't so wet at the show, you would have noticed. It may have been buffable, but not sure, and I wasn't going to buy it and take a chance. Not sure what the guy who had it paid for it.

    I sold that one to Bob at Pro-max in November 2005. :laugh: I found it in Oregon, it was on the GSCA board for sale for awhile when I bought it. Did it still have snow tires on it, or did they buy some new tires?

    Had a great time. Was good to meet those of you that were there. Can't wait til the big one in July. Maybe...just MAYBE:pray: I'll have my Kitty painted by then. Yeah I see a few old Buicks around the Lakewood and Ft. Lewis area. Saw a 65 Chrysler Imperial that blew my socks off, and found out it belonged to a Major I know...mmmmmmmmm...and she wants power windows...told her she was nuts...go figure..

    Thanks to all of you who braved the rain and turned out. I appreciate the great photos you've all posted.

    It was great to meet Sergeant Major, dmfconsult, Eric, and GS-XNR for the first time, and always fun to see everyone's cool Buicks.

    Really looking forward to seeing all of you and even more Buicks at the Nationals next month.

    Perhaps some of the forum regulars would like to consider something to stick on or add to your National Meet nametags to designate you as a V8Buick member. This could make it easier for us to recognize one another. Alternatively, you might want to consider planning a meal together or other meeting time to make sure that everyone has a chance to meet. I'm a member of a '59 Buick forum, for example, and one of our members driving his '59 from Kansas is putting together special buick-59.com nametags. We're meeting with our cars for photos following the Wednesday (July 25) Museum of Flight tour, followed by dinner together at Salty's in West Seattle. The BCA (Buick Club of America) forum members are planning a breakfast get-together at the host hotel on Friday morning, July 27. So, I'm just throwing the idea out there in case anyone wants to plan something for the V8Buick folks.
