    Hi Folks... we are back again for our 19th year, wow, times flies.

    This is the annual thread to recognize and thank the contributors that make the board possible. Last year was a tough year for a lot of us, and we were off a little in our fundraising, but I was surprised that it was not that much off.. I expected worst.

    Speaks to the great character among our members here.

    Thanks in advance for supporting this community.

    Ya, your a funny guy... If I had 69 Billion, we would be awash in Buick speed and resto parts..

    And I would not be in the shop till 10pm or later every night, and certainly not up at 5am every morning...

    :eek:

    I would be on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean , directing my minions by phone on building buick resto and speed parts, and only returning to the states to my fabulous 50,000 square foot facility to either run my dyno to come up with a new combo, or to haul my mulit car trailer to the track to drag race for the weekend.

    now back to reality...
