He said I can’t, that is the day we’re having our annual car show! This is the car show that we ( Buick guys) have been taking part for the past few years.
Jimmy asked if we can join them. He said that they will provide a lot that can hold about 80 cars just for the Buicks plus another lot if we fill the initial one up.
He also said there will be trophies handed out, he said the Buick guys can judge the Corvettes and the Corvette guys can judge the Buicks. There will be goodie bags for everyone and raffle tickets sold for even more prices to be given out. The will be a food vender along with other parts vendors too. All we have to do is behave! There will be neither permits nor fees. You can buy your own food from the vendor there.

I think this is a win win situation! This will be a Buick get together combined with other cars including Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s , Vetts and so on yet we can have our Buicks in one lot and walk around and see other nice cars as well. I was very impressed with last years turn out and I think If we get enough Buicks there we can take over the show.

What do you guys think? We can have another Buick get together at another date as well!

Hey Loyd,

I stopped out there for a while, there were prolly 30 buicks I am guessing. Pics are posted over on the turbobuick.com board. Also, some hoodlums were destroying the road in front of the car show by doing 300 foot burnouts and such... the nerve of some people. :mrgreen:
