Larry's comments from the Oct 11, 2002 race

Had a very nice time last night at the track! We had 7-8 cars there. I picked up some goodies on the way- burgers, pop- chips and a roasted chicken. As the old saying goes- don't go shopping when your hungry! Well i got to the track and wanted to talk to every one- but the chicken was getting cold!I wolfed the whole thing down in 10.2 seconds at 135 bits per second! It was a great night to race. Paul P. almost broke into the 11's with a stock turbo-yikes! Joe R. made it to the high 11's- got to watch that guy. Jerry T. hit the 11.20's- he's got a new boost control set up-nice! Kevin T. is happy with his new mass air flow sys- still juggling the chips- almost hit the 11's. Ed C. and his family out of Rochester was there with yet another one of "T"s- I lost track - How many does he have? He almost had a 13 sec. run- its his dailydriver.-all stock. Don F. joined us - has a new turbo T-had problem with the mass air flow.. Yep - Jerry had a spare in his van! I swear, he has one of everything in that van! Oh- Don also has a T with a big block in it- runs low 6's in the 8th--thats a nice ride! Phil T. had his new ride out- has some serious power- just getting the bugs out. Oh- new car- new trailer- nice set up! And then there was Paul C. out of Olean. Yep- first time racing!! He was siked!He did OK!- Ran high 20's!!! HUH?? Well-he left his GN home and was racing his daily driver- an 86' Nissan Pick-up?? What the heck is that? I "immediately" expelled him from our group! Not really- his GN is not ready yet- having an oil pressure problem. He enjoyed the experience of racing though. And finally there was me-- I ate a lot, talked a lot, cooked food- and ate more and took a couple pictures! It was a good evening-No car and I didn't Break Anything!!

Larry's comments from the Jun 25, 2003 cruise in

It was all good , except for our clubs representation- we had only two cars there. Mike Hamilton and Nick Leonardis were the shinning lights as they brought there rides. Overall, there were some 120 - 150 cars there. Guys blowing their tires off in the burn out box, Rock 103 with some tunes, 50-60 motorcycles, wrenching contest, food and a lot on onlookers - like me. It was a great night for a cruise.

Lancaster Nostalgia Drags

Meet at 8:45 am at Cinta's - 5740 Genesee st to go in the event as a group-- We should have at least 6 cars entering Larry Not a club event for 2005 As we discussed at the picnic-- we will meet outside the race track-- on Genesee street (route 33) - about 1/4 mile before Gunnville road. (Gunnville is the road that the race track is on.). We will meet in the parking lot of CINTIS. No later than 8:30 am. I have talked to the organizer-- he suggested we be in line at the track by 9:00 am. So, meeting at 8:30 should be fine. CINTIS will be on the left hand side- heading east on 33. If your not there on time- you will not be able to park with our group. We need to go in as a group-- all in line. Those with trailers, will be in line and then once inside- will drop there trailers behind the new fuel building and drive on up to the circle. The price at the door is $12. - that includes you, your car and one passenger.. I forgot to ask him what the cost would be for additional people-- sorry.. Please drop me a line - Id like to know how many of you to look for... Thanks - Larry


WNY Turbo Buicks Family Picnic

The picnic will be at Larrys House! Directions to Larry's house - its easy. Get onto Rt 5 south. I am 15 min south of Hamburg Beach. Stay on Rt 5 until you hit Derby. You will see a McDonalds on the right and a Burger King on the left. Once you are there, you have about 2 miles to go. You will see the Post Office on your right. About 150 yards later, you will see Sweetland road on your right- turn right there. Travel about a 1/4 mile and my house is on the left (7278 Sweetland) and my office (with our sign) is on the right. If you are familiar with Sturgeon Point Marina - Sweetland road is about a 1/4 mile before that turn.

Larry's comment's on the 2004 picnic

Jun 29, 2004 image The club family outing was a lot of fun and I thank all who came. I got to say Ron Turch put a lot into it - bring his cooking wears, picking up most of the food and then cooking the main meal up for all of us.- Nice Job and Thanks Ron. We held the raffle on the T/A rear end cover, a club hat and a GN T-shirt donated by Ken Feind. Well, Paul Cummings won the cover, John MacPherson won the hat and I won the shirt! All was good. Even my neighbor steamed corn on the cob for us. I thank all of you who brought side dishes also. A few of you made it into the pool, there was alot of you who took advantage of looking over all the Turbo cars parked on our front lawn- it looked really cool. Don Foss tailored his big block GN and had it out on the street in front of my house- sounded really nice and laid down some fresh rubberized pavement. We took some time to set the cars up for a nice photo and many of you have seen that- cool! Then we capped it off with a camp fire and many of you stayed. Thanks- that was the best part for me. The day and evening were perfect- warm, sunny, dry and no wind. Camp fire was 30 ' straight up. We cooked alot of smores and hot dogs - Steve Bayes won the hot dog event - hands down! Ahhh- I think he won the marshmallow event also. We talked about the events for the balance of the season. I have ask Ed Chapman to add the balance to our event schedule. In addition it was agreed I would e-mail everyone on our list to remind them of these events and YOU would respond to these e-mails with a simple - YES or No on your attendance. This would help me greatly in cases where members call me and ask who's attending. At least I can give them a clue. In an effort to create more communication between members- Ron will be getting a list out to everyone that will list current members - names, addresses and phone numbers.

Ed,

We have the classes broken into:
1) 84 and older
sub class: 1974-1984 Production
sub class: 1974-1984 Modified

2)85 and newer
sub class: 1985-1991 Production
sub class: 1985-1991 Modified

So there are 4 classes to choose from for 80's cars. We did not break it
down into brands because preregistrations weighed heavy towards Chevy and
the day of the show you usually get the larger diversity. We felt breakdown
of years would be more fair. Plus we have multiple awards for each class as
like last year with a +/- system off adding awards to larger classes.
