    Strap yourselves in folks, it's that time of year again...The East Coast Regional Buick Meet is taking place once again at beautiful Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland. For an event flyer, click on: http://www.northeastgsgnclub.com/flyers/ECBPM2003.pdf
    There will be Test and Tune all day on Friday, Oct. 10th. Open to ALL makes, so tell your buddies with the Brand-X cars to bring'em on down. There'll be plenty of room for everyone and an unlimited number of runs! Just ask Doug Kelly, he and his wife made 50 side-by-side passes against each other a couple of years ago on Friday. We'll also have a Gambler's Race on Friday for all those who are interested.
    Saturday we will have time trials in the morning, with Buick eliminations in the afternoon, as well as a "Display Only" car show in an area set aside in the pits. ALL cars in eliminations MUST be Buick powered, however, there will be Test and Tune all day on Saturday for Non-Buicks, so if your Brand-X buddies want to stick around for Saturday to make more time runs, they are welcome to do so. I hope to see you all there.

    This should be a fast meet. I know of some quick Ohio boys coming in as well as Michigan, Indiana and maybe Texas again. The Turbo cars did not last long last year in the Quick 16 and we may have to turn it into a Quick 32 going by the response I am getting so far. The bump for the Quick 16 should be a low 10 I bet.

    I can't open either one. Is there a host hotel or somewhere most are staying? I am now planning to make this event but need to find a place to stay. Thanks, Dennis

    The host hotel is the Crystal Inn and the phone is (800) 631-3803. They are located at exit 100 in Maryland right off of Rt95.. The track is 5 minutes away.

    Dave, the only time I've run as fast as at the Cecil County meet was at Atco Raceway here in NJ on a crisp 48 degree Dec. day. So I wouldn't say it's impossible to run better than at this race, just unlikely! Youze MI guys aren't gonna take our money home witcha are ya?

    Hey Doug, should we bring our boats or cars for Cecil???? After watching the news MD looks like it sunk????? Hope all is well with you all there!

    Hey Dave! All we had here was some wind and rain. A few trees down and parts of the state lost power from the lines getting knocked down. No problem by me though. As far as Maryland goes...they've got plenty of time to dry it out before we get there. Even though the track is only a couple of miles from Chesapeake Bay, it's uphill from it so it's not a problem. Also, my trans guy is going down to Cecil to race tomorrow at some $5000.00 bracket race, so I'll ask him how the track made out, weather-wise. See you there, Doug.

    Got some info and pics from my Brother tonight of the destruction in his neck of the woods, 35 miles from Inner Harbor, Baltimore, and its not nice. I have Oct 10th as a vacation day, but no travel day to make it to Cecil, but you never know, what I can wiesel out of work, our buddy Bill Wills, says I should book a room and then go from there, I won't make the trip I made last year, and I am not sure the car is up for a big race with tires worn out, etc. But I have my skinny 29x9s to put back on that have very few runs, so I will decide in the next couple days what I am going to do, and let you know, definitely would like to be there with all my best Buick friends, etc. RV

    Guys, I live in Cecil County, MD and other than power outages and flooding near the bay and tributaries it isn't that bad. We had more wind then anything. For the most part I'd say the power problems are from trees down due to rain we got a couple days ago. We didn't see much rain with this storm. I've got a mess here and no power (using a generator right now) but, I'm sure everything will be squared away in time for the race. See ya' there.:TU:

    Alright, you win, I made hotel reservations tonight, the rest is up to me also to get some things taken care of on the car, like change over the tires, back to 29x9s, cause I wore those big things out I bought at Norwalk from Ron last year, change the steel brake drum from 2002 to the aluminum ones I got from Scott Palmer at Norwalk this year, who also happens to be a new '70 GS convertible owner, he bought Stuedemann's blue car this past Saturday, and maybe find some mufflers, so you guys can't hear me, but I need some flanges on the headers as Wallyburger cut them off last year, still don't know what mufflers to put on, The Old Guy has the flowmasters from Dennis Halladay, which is where the headers came from, he keeps threatening that I should take 'em. But he's gone BDEing till later this week!
    See ya. RV
