    Default South Florida Buick Social

    My buddy, Dave, is hosting a Buick get together at his shop in Lake Worth this Sunday, 1/8 @ 10 AM. J&J Upholstery, 3511 Boutwell Rd., Lake Worth, Fl 33461. There will be about 25 "Black" cars and me with 2 GS's. Not to many V8's representing. If you have a GS or some other Buick slide on by and check it out. Even if your car can't make it you are still welcome. Last year Dave put on a little BBQ. More details will be coming.

    It was a great show. Between 40 and 50 cars. Mostly Turbo cars, but thats OK. Hosts were super, and even fed us all. Great day.

    Fred, it was "Bad To The Bone", wait a minute... That's a "Black Car" song, seeing you and Steve there. I'm trying to download pictures but either my phone is slow right now or the school board's computers are slow today.

    Here are some more pictures of the BUICK get together....Buick get together3.jpgBuick get together5.jpgBuick get together6.jpgBuick get together7.jpgBuick get together8.jpgBuick get together9.jpgBuick get together13.jpgBuick get together14.jpgI have to tell you all... Steve pulled the wool right over my head!!! He said he was coming, but I never believed him. He even texted me at 10 AM and asked how the weather was down here. When I pulled into the parking lot and saw his car I was flabbergasted!!! By noon the 5th picture was 2 deep in a row of turbo cars!

    It turned out to be a beautiful day. Sunny, high 60's, but a bit breezy. Picture 2 is a GNX that had less than 500 miles on it before driving to the get together. It had sat for almost 30 years. Radiator hoses were leaking, hood didn't stay up, but the car looked awesome! Picture 3 is an El Camino with the 3.8 turbo charged BUICK engine. Sweet! Picture 4... A friend of the Dave's shop owns a a catering business. He brought his grill, fryer, and needed equipment and fed everybody. Fried chicken, tator tots, home made burgers, sausage, and more. Thanks!!! Yes, that's GSFred and Brez standing out front waiting for some delicious food. Pics 5 and 6 are more cars. Picture 2 also has Cindy standing in it. She is Dave's wife. Dave and his family have some very nice and very fast GN's. My son met them way back when he got his first T-Type back in high school. They're GREAT!!! Thanks Dave, Cindy, and Shev for putting on a great gathering!!!!
