Speaking of go, that thing could pass almost anything on the road except a gas station...


My uncle bought a 62 Buick Electra in the late 60s.

Those old Buick's were cool. My brother drove them for years. I bought an old 55 special from him. It was almost 20 years old but it rode like you were floating on a cloud. So smooth and quiet and at 70 - 80 mph it was awesome. Had to part with it later on because it fell victim to rust!

Dave, Carol, Barb, Irene, Sena, Mizzie, Lilly and I almost had a mini going on but we were all having such a grand time I forgot the pop so I guess it really didn't happen. Good thing too because being in our coach the social distancing thing was a bit much. We are thinking of hitting a restaurant before we leave this area so anyone for a gathering here near Fortuna Road?

Well good evening to you Mutants,

Tim you will pay for that comment on the letter M ...

We made it to West Amarillo today from 50 miles south of Albuquerque , the drive was quite peaceful and hopefully soon this Walmart parking lot will get peaceful in a couple of hours , only time will tell.

I never drove a Buick, my grandfather on my dad's side liked Pontiacs, and my dad was an Oldsmobile and Cadillac man.
My first car was a 67 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 with a 425 4bbl and a turbo hydramatic transmission. And after I met Marcia we were Pontiac people , I sure was sad when they decided to close Pontiac down we had a Bonneville and two different Gran Prix and I loved all of them , currently driving my 2008 Jeep and it takes me places that would make most passenger cars crumble in fear .

Cheers !!!

Long time ago when I was in my teens, (in the 50s) Dad had a subscription for several years for delivery of the National Geographic Magazine. In those days, cars in the UK were mostly small and painted black. So I found the adverts in the magazine for those huge colorful American cars fascinating and I clearly recall lusting after that Buick Electra with its 'frowny' inward sloping face. Dad collected several years worth of the magazines and eventually had them leather bound into volumes. I was so disappointed that the binder had removed all the adverts as they did give me a glimpse of the culture of that land over in the west. Who knew!
By the way, I still think I'm too young to be considering owning a Buick.

How much you willing to pay to keep me from telling DW what you wrote. She was in tears when we went out on the road because we could tow her favorite car 4 down; a Buick Rendesvouz. Had all the bells and whistles and still had more pep than required.

Jeffery! Although there Might be things I've said or done that Might Warrent retribution. But as you can see from the above quote that the comment on the M was not me! Never would I make such comment about our leader, the chosen one, the Lump supreme aka. "The Big Lump"

My first car 1958 Ford!
Only owned one other ford other than it. Found Chevys and GMCs were more reliable. We did have a little BMW Z3 that was fun but mechanic friend suggested getting rid of it before Warrenty ran out on drive train. Chrysler LHS was a lemon, Chrysler actually replaced it due to countinuous breakdown time. The new car only cost be $50 and was a year model newer.

Now something totally Mutant in scope

Notta Ranch has functioning air-conditioning powered by four dedicated solar panels.

Our Barb is a true mutant extraordinaire

Next project is to finalize the permanent positioning and then get the plumbing all up and operating.

Yuma Mutant Dinner Gathering

OK you lot still in Yuma (or trapped there for life) we are trying to get a dinner gathering for the mutants willing to go.
The restaurant is right downtown in 'old town' and they have a patio table big enough for 30.

I doubt we will need that many seats but the place will hold from 8 to 30.

Reservations depending on date picked and we will go for that date most people can get to so .......................

So far Denise and I are confirmed as are Paula and Jim

The place location is

Da Boyz Italian Restaurant

284 S Main Street

Yuma.
