    Ryans-GSX Have fun, life is short.

    I was in Charlotte NC today to meet up with a few fellow Carolina Chapter Members. I stopped by and saw John Fritz as I was headed out of town to drop off a few parts for him as well as pick up a chrome "Buick" embossed air cleaner lid he was saving for me. I was shocked to see in his stash of parts he had a complete air cleaner for me. John graciously gave it to me. I offered to pay him multiple times over and over but he wouldn't take my money.

    BIG THANK YOU TO JOHN FRITZ !!!!

    I was sworn to secrecy before John would allow me into the stash house. lol
    What you see in the stash house is not to be discussed on the board and no pictures allowed haha

    Stage 2 iron Nice Chevelle LOL

    Fritz would give you the shirt off his back I know he has a set of NOS stage 2 iron head stash somewhere and he definitely has the market cornered on some very desirable Buick parts. I think it would be nice if some of us guys or girls here on the East Coast could take a road trip sometime this summer to North Carolina for a weekend of good eating drinking lol.water and get Fritz's Poor Torring GSX back on the road for him. Have our own Buick garage squad.

    You just gotta Love Fritzencheezgradr! ;)

    Sign me up for the work party. Are they still doing the Turbo Buick Meet at RC's in Burlington, NC or did that already happen this year? Be nice if we could combine trips, probably get more help that way. I just wanna see his face after his first ride after bangin' gears in that thing! ;):cool:;)

    Well........I as you know (lol) am never speechless but definitely humbled by the kind words from all my buddies on here.
    I didn’t even know about this thread till my New Jersey brutha Frankie Iron man started joking on the phone about a garage squad er sumthin.
    Anyhow, it was my pleasure Ryan, and as soon as my in-house security clears your surrendered electronic devices for locations,photographic imagery & any proprietary stash secrets I’ll get that next dayed out to you.
    Proud to call y’all friends and I didn’t do anything for Ryan that others folks on here haven’t looked out for and done for me.
    Some great friends on here : )

    I guess that I am special (and NOT in a "Jerry's Kids" kind of Special). I got to go into "The Domain" on my first visit... Of course the original 1970 Buick parts bribe just MAY have helped (WINK WINK)...
