Re: Tom is back !!!

Welcome back, Tom. I seem to recall that those Buicks were very well-built and also easy on fuel.

Re: Model A cross-country migration

Re: Feeling emotional today..

Can understand your feelings. The years intensify what means most, while a lot of the rest tends to fade. Enjoy the car and the good memories.

Interesting to me that there is no talk of Chev, or other makes.

Tires look to be substantial - 'full size'. Nice.
