    Hey Guys,
    Is there anyone near Buffalo NY? It would be great to show up in force at a car show or race track. I am friends with one of the partners of Lancaster National Speedway. It is a 1/8 mile track but have a Buick Meet could be arranged. Anybody interested, let me know. Maybe a Northeast Weekend could be started. Close to Niagara Falls and plenty of hotels and services. The racetrack is in a safe neighborhood with plenty of parking for campers too. I am sure everyone has there summer plans, but how about 2022? Just throwing it out there....

    Not a whole lot of Buick owners in the Buffalo area as you probably noticed but there are a few, a couple on this board. Even the BCA local chapter shows were pretty small.

    Yeah we are few and far between. I'm at Lancaster pretty much every Friday. If something was arranged Lou, I'd get there, pending work, family obligations and the weather.

    I'm between Rochester and Syracuse but my Buick is in no shape to drive more than 10' yet. My cousin stage 1 in my avatar is a little better, I can try to convince him to do something.

    I remember going to the Grand Island BCA meet a long time ago and being impressed by the turnout.

    I was there, it was NE BCA meet or something like that, the local chapter meets typically have 25 cars of all years.

    This was probably 15 years ago. I remember meeting @jsgs the night before at the track. It was nostalgic night and my good friend made it to the finals that night but red lighted. Honestly can't remember if it was Lancaster or NYIRP. Anyway I met up with him the next day in Grand Island. My Skylark wasn't done, I drove my truck up.

    I do remember the Skylark/GS cars were the minority. All sorts of cars there.

    The BCA Nationals in Batavia had a race day at Lancaster Speedway. Thats were Roberta kicked my butt in the 1/8 mile :D Now I have a bone stock 68 GS that I was not pushing hard but even if I did it would not have mattered :p That was 2005? Grand Island was a few years before that.

    Yeah that was awhile ago. There were some Canadian guys that showed up too. One in particular had a very snotty sounding '70, he is on this board.
    I think his name is Tom, he had a write up on installing a modern manual trans.....He goes by Stg2 something on the board I think.
    The two tracks have changed hands since. Lancaster is now officially known as NYIRP (New York International Raceway Park), but everybody still calls it Lancaster.
    The old NYRIP, is now Empire Dragway.
