    Thanks guys. Same offer here too. Any of you guys ever come to the States let us know.

    Last June at the Buicks at Norwalk, Ohio there were two guys and a woman all from the Netherlands. Sorry don't remember their names. They were visiting the States and came over during the Buick event. They had a great time at the event! They caught my run at the track on video when my fiberglass door pealed off hitting the other car smashing out the windshield. We ended up fixing both cars the following morning so we can still go racing It was a cool video.

    ... very interesting ! May be that´s a help for those who want to have a look to this article but couldn´t get the magazine up to now. - For Per, Mike and me, there are only some days left and we can read the whole article.

    Smile Rick, the magazine arrived in Germany !

    Rick, the magazine arrived today morning ! Thank you for packing it that way - it came without any scratch.

    The Buick article is really as anounced and the pictures are better than expected ! I love to see all that big beautiful Buicks !! Also the other stories seem to be interesting for me - a very good magazine; one should have an eye on it, because the articles are more detailed as in other car magazines. Deplorable that we can´t get it in Europe.

    Thanks again, Rick !

    My copy arrived yesterday . I haven’t read through the whole article yet, but it sure is interesting reading.
    Always though Bob’s four door was green? The one in the article appeared to be steel grey, maybe he got two of them?
    Keith’s and Brian’s cars looked great too on the pictures.

    Rick, really appreciate that you had checked the box “gift” in the customs paper. Otherwise the Swedish tax department would have charged me for 25% of the value of the goods plus the shipping cost. Then they charge you for an extra 12 dollars for the trouble they had to charge you in the first place
    That’s what they did with the center caps I just bought on ebay.

    I intended to tell you but then I thought this would pass as an ordinary letter, also I didn’t want to burden you with more things to think of when sending these magazines

    Thanks!

    Yes...I just noticed it this morning.

    I thought it was mine, since I had sent some samples to the person in charge of the photos. I compared it to the ones I sent, and they aren't the same. I'm assuming that's a picture of Bob's "helmet."

    Interesting, since the page mentions nothing of Buicks or Centurions.

    It's hard to tell whether the vinyl top is brown or black in the given photo.

    Nonetheless, it's cool they used that shot

    It look green on his avatar which is the only picture I’ve seen on it until now, never the less it’s a grand looking automobile..

    the magazine came in yesterday here. Very nice and beside the Buick part, the rest of the magazine is also nice. It's just a wonderful article about the best brand in the business.

    I believe that the helmet photo on page 7 was shot by the photographer who worked with my car. He made a point of shooting the emblem, and, while it's difficult to tell for certain from the photo, I believe that the vinyl top background is dark brown rather than black.

    I also thought it curious that the editor's page made no mention of the Buick article. Most readers would have no idea that the emblem photo was a tie to the Buick article.

    Glad to hear the good news that it arrived OK to you guys. That was pretty quick too. Always a pleasure to help out fellow Buick guys.
