    Good morning Buick enthusiasts! I'm hoping everyone had a really great Christmas yesterday. It is now time to rally the troops and get ready for the 3rd annual "South Florida Buick Get Together." This years event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020.
    Last year we had over 26 cars and more than 50 people attended! I'm hoping even more cars and their awesome owners show up this year. At this years GS Nationals several people from the west coast of Florida found me and said they would come over. Hey west coast people... Last year Jim and Retha, AKA IlliniGSX, came over from Ft. Myers and said it wasn't to bad of a drive. Just don't let your GPS take you on CR 880 for a short cut because you will find yourself on the bumpiest road in Florida!!! Besides meeting several people from the from the west coast who said they wanted to attend I've met many Buick people at various car shows who also said they wanted to attend. Would you believe there are many Buick enthusiasts who have never heard of the V8 Buick forum? I got their phone numbers!
    I have a buddy who is on the "Turbo Regal" forum. He already made the announcement and he said last night, "A lot of people have already said they are coming!" So get those V8's cleaned off and fired up!!! More information will be coming once my brain wakes up from all the holiday cheer.

    Steve... Your marks are still there, but they are fading. Maybe you'd like to revitalize them???

    CR 880 is with out doubt the bumpiest road I have ever driven. At times I thought I had lost the trailer from behind the Tahoe. We plan to attend as we had a great time and met a lot of nice people. Let me know what you want us to bring.

    PS... we had a great Buick cruise tonight. About 15 Buick's and some other cool cars cruised US1 from Lantana to Lighthouse Point. Stuffed our bellies and cruised back home. A great night!

    Howdy all,
    I apologize for not leaving more information lately. We've been getting ready for my sons wedding and it's unbelievable how many things you have to do. Like shopping for a new suit.
    This Saturday Buick get together scheduled for this Saturday, February 8 is good to go! It looks like the cold front will be finished with us by Friday afternoon. The National Weather Service said a chance of clouds but no mention of rain. That is always important. Now I have a public service announcement. :)
    Somebody from Canada, who is on the V8 Forum, and a winter Florida resident around the Orlando area, said they were coming last weekend. They said they would bring the buns. I apologize. I don't remember your name or how we were communicating. If you are still coming I will give you a head count for the hamburger buns. If I don't hear from you by Friday afternoon I will go get the buns myself. Sure can't have a good barbecue sandwich without some nice buns. :) If you have any questions feel free to call or text me at 561-722-0922. Thanks, John

    I just remembered its my anniversary this weekend. I know for a fact she will not want to do car stuff. Sorry to say I'll have to pass this year. I'll plan on roasting some tires next spring at your place.
