So glad this board is here to answer my stupid questions! Hopefully Ill be hanging out and getting my TB back on the road. Thanks to whoever is running this ship!  :cheers:

You missed the fast and stupidius days dude. :rofl: You have no idea how many idiots bought a stock GN and thought they could run 10's with simple bolt ons. :O

ah...at our age, Dan and I are usually glad to be seen!

Turbobuick.com is still going strong.  If you want to be told what parts you need to buy, then it's still run by vendors and they are happy to sell you stuff.

If you want to get your car fixed, then we, over here, are happy to help you.  This is a board not run by vendors so our must buys are a much smaller list.  :)

I think that board is a good starting point.  I found The vortexbuick site and the gnttype website from that board. I found myself researching certain individuals posts to see if I trusted their input on some of my questions. Didn't know about this site till I met Charlie and Gary at the 2014 Texas Nats. You really got to get to some of the get togethers and meet some other buick folks.

Oh Yeah, It was great before I left and whatever happened, happened. There were a lot of knowledgeable people there.
