    Fantastic weather, probably mid to high 70's and no rain, 140-150 Buicks. Lots of converts, a GSX in yellow and in white. Best in show was a 65 wildcat convert, 4 speed dual quad 1 owner. People's Choice was a red 54 Special convert.

    Great show! thanks to all who put it on.

    for the few people that were interested in the fuel injection that asked about fuel mileage (this was my test run for actual numbers) I traveled 220 miles round trip and burned 9.5 gallons, unbelievably that comes out to 23 MPg. keep in mind that this is in a car weighing 3,940 pounds (with my tools, my son and me in the car. yes I stopped at a truck weigh station on the trip home so it is the exact weight for this trip) and the car makes 430 HP at the rear wheels at 5,000 RPM (dyno'd not guessed). im totally blown away by this number and don't actually believe it myself so I will do more testing. feel free to follow the updates of the EFI in the X-Bodies forum.

    Did Doug get the "Neon" ? One of the best shows yet! Excellent weather...
    I was wondering when the 4-speed Aqua Wildcat would get the big Kahunna.
    Beautiful car... it is!

    You, too! And everyone there.. it was a great time. I got a ton of pics, was organizing them when I tried to respond yesterday. It will take a bit to upload but I'll get on it! :)

    Yesterday I happened to find one of my dream Buicks for sale so I was completely focused on that... more on that later (I hope!).
