    Thanks for the sweet shots, Rick! The car was very consistent this weekend, so all I had to worry about were RT's...still working on that

    Thanks Alan and Renee

    I saved them to my rotating wallpaper folder. The 2 shots with it squatting down and holding the nose high are testaments to Buick torque! Nice shots! And well done, Adam!

    It amazes me to think that that car would Kill just about most new "sporty" cars offered today ... and most muscle cars of that era (even the mighty '87 GN !!)

    ... and you drove it how far there and back ?
