    I'll send mine in when I get back from BCA Meet. Is this for all years or just 1970?

    Just a thought here. If you are having it at GSCA, where we know attendance has been way done from 20+ years ago when the show was in its prime, why limit it to GSX's?

    Why not also make a 1970 GS 50 year reunion and open it up to all 70 GS's, with a special sub class for GSX's? There is plenty of space for it, and maybe it would rejuvenate things a bit for the GSCA.

    It's only a survey to judge interest, so far no one has said clone! I'll remove the option.

    If you are on the V8Board and have GSX you need to seriously consider attending this event. I still hear about the event from 2009 and how everyone wanted to have another. Here is your chance. We all have over a year to make it.

    Also please start sharing it with all your GSX buddies in our local regions. This will be an epic event.

    The GSX part is super cool. I also wonder if it should include something for the 50th Anniv. or the Buick 455.

    THE 1970 BUICK GSX REUNION
    "Come on Baby Light My Fire" -- Jim Morrison of The Doors*
    A special Reunion at the 40th Annual Buick GS Nationals at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, KY on Oct. 21-24, 2020

    GS Club of America Founder and GS Nationals Director Richard Lasseter along with veteran GSCA member Roberta Vasilow, owner of 1970 GSX # 14, both proudly invite all owners of 1970-72 Buick GSX's to celebrate its 50th Silver Anniversary at the 40th annual GS Nationals. The actual Car Show date is Friday, October 23.

    We'd greatly appreciate your assistance with this communication via your publication(s) and also extend the invitation for you to attend. This will only be done once in our lifetime. GSX's in attendance will include everything from all-originals with their 50 years of patina to full Concours 400 point restorations … and everything in between. Many of these same cars, along with hundreds of other Buicks, will be racing on Beech Bend's drag strip throughout this event, per the usual venue at the Buick GS Nationals.

    This is going to be one GOLDEN event and if you own a GSX you are not going to want to miss this. We had 93 at the Reunion. I think we can break that record at the 50th Anniversary. I am super excited this event is going to take place. If you own a GSX or known someone who does plan to bring it to this event.
