Great Buick Sunday
« on: October 17 2019, 11:55:40 AM »
As I type this, I look at the subject line again and realize it sounds like an actual holiday. Lol. Here in the Saint Louis area I'm part of the buick group/club and last Sunday turned out to be perfect. We meet once a month, and this past meeting we captured a couple of photos of the cars everyone brought. I attempted to upload a photo, but it's too large. We all met at Grafton Winery, and I can't express how beautiful the scenery was. The majority of the group showed up and we had a great time. I actually considered going to Bowling Green next weekend. We'll see though. I'm looking to buy another motor/block because I'm certain mine needs some work. If I find a way to reformat the pics, I'll be sure to add them to this thread. I hope all of you fine fellow Buick/non buick owners are doing well.  :atbeer:

You can resize pics in paint in Windows 10. I don't miss my Buick. It was a money pit. Took up way to much of my life.

Lol, they are def money pits, but they are amazing to drive. I don't have windows 10 available to me yet. I'll find a way to resize the pics though. For some reason the TR is a perfect balance between problems and fun. Lol. It's all worth it when they're running right, and I've owned mine for quite a bit of time and it's never ran right. LMAO

IRFANVIEW is the ubiquitous image utility, never had a machine I didn't install that on. Well, OK maybe my apple II clone...

Always install from the makers website or preferably ninite.com,  they strip all the bad out first.

.............. ... I don't have windows 10 available to me yet. I'll find a way to resize the pics though.
Win 7 will resize as an option in one of the two photo viewers.
I am on win 10 now after a lightning strike and unable to give more specific info.
