Let's repeat history!
Hot on the heels of the largest GSX reunion the world has ever seen, the Buick Performance Group proudly presents the first ever factory 'Stage1 Convention'.
Come "light your fire" and party with us at the 2010 Buick Performance Group Nationals to be held on July 30 through August 1 at National Trail Raceway in Hebron OH (near Columbus). Let's gather together the largest number of 1969 - 1974 factory stage1 cars anyone has ever seen since the Buick muscle car days of Flint.
All factory stage1 cars and iron-headed stage2 cars are welcome. GSXs, Gran Sports, or Rivieras – it doesn’t matter! If your Buick was originally ordered with the stage1 performance engine option, bring it. Lets get all the colors of the Buick rainbow together and shine for the world to see. Does it run? Drive it! Is it too nice to drive, or if it doesn’t run? Trailer it! Please bring ‘complete’ cars only, meaning a body, drivetrain, and (at least partial) interior are present. Any and all modifications are welcome! Rust or rot, primer or paint, concours or race car, it doesn't matter. It doesn't need to be pretty - it only needs to be a factory stage1. All cars in any condition have something to offer!
This is a friendly, relaxed event, meaning cars are not judged unless the owner wants them to be judged. Concours and street driven judged classes are available, if desired. Let's get the owners together to meet new people while kindling old friendships. We will have awards for the ‘Longest Distance Driver’, ‘Longest Distance Trailered’, and ‘Person With The Most Stage1s in Attendance’. Unless the owner wants the car judged, participants only need to pay the spectator fee to enter the show. While BPG membership is advantageous, it is not required.
The BPG will give out a 'one-time' commemorative license plate to all owners who bring stage1 cars to the reunion. It is important to please contact Marc Conigliari or Duane Heckman to get on the list and have your plate reserved. Marco can be reached anytime by email – Marco@stage1registry.com, or by dialing 610-724-1656 after 9:00PM eastern time. Duane can be reached at 610-544-6776 after 7:30PM eastern time. We would like to know your name, contact information, the year/body style/transmission/color of your car, and if you want the car judged (concours/street driven). Also, please do not assume we know you are coming - definitely contact either one of us and make it official.
This is a special event that may never come to pass again, so don't miss the factory 'Stage1 Convention' at the 2010 Buick Performance Group National Event.
In the event we have left-over commemorative license places, participants only may be able to purchase an additional copy - only after the show is over. Quantities are limited. One only, on a first-come first-serve basis. I will be making a note of who wants an additional plate as you enter the show area, as all additional-plate requests may not be honored. Pricing will be $25.
Also to note: All participants in the Stage1 Convention, unless they are being judged concours, do not pay the regular car show fee - just the spectator fee. This includes participants who want their car judged in the street/race classes. Stage1 Convention participants who want their car judged concours will need to pay the normal car show fee. Any passengers/additional people will also need to pay spectator fees. If you choose to race, and you did not pay the car show fee, you must also pay a race fee and have your car teched as normal.
