    Yup, you read that right.. we first flipped the switch on the board in the afternoon of Feb 3,2002. We had no idea what to expect. Maybe a couple hundred Buick guys would log on...

    We have almost 30,000 registrations now, 190,000 threads, and 1.6 Million posts..

    I guess it caught on.. :shock:

    Hard to beleive it has been 10 years.

    In those ten years we have grown tremendously in size, and the information database we have created here, for a specific make, is unmatched in the automotive world.

    We have been mentioned in Major Newspapers, Magazines, and TV shows.

    It's been quite a ride, and I want to personally thank all of you who have opened your wallets to make it happen.

    So once again we come to the list of Supporters for our 10th Aniversary year.

    On this page are the usernames of those who make this site possible.

    Thank you all.

    If all active members here donated $10 (...or more, if you can afford it), to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this great Buick site, it sure would go along way to meeting the 2012 v8buick operating budget and expense requirements !! :beer :beer :TU:
    ( . . . I'm in - Paypal makes it real easy to contribute !! )

    V-8 Buick - of course, but buy your own cookies!! (Re: 10 Year Anniversary)

    Dear Jim and V-8 Buick members . . . .

    [humor mode on] :laugh:
    Awe shucks Jim! I already gave the board a nice Christmas present!

    Oh alright, I'll help to get the year off right. However, no refills for your Christmas Cookie jar. From now on, you've got to buy your own cookies!!
    :laugh:
    [humor mode off]

    Seriously, thanks for putting up this board and for all the work you've done to make it into a success! Congrats on its success and thanks to everyone who contributed to make this community so special!! We all should chip in something to pay for the bills because we all get so much more out of it!! :TU:

    Cheers, Edouard :beer
