Just wanted to take a moment to thank all you guys who showed up and for those of you who have put on a great show at last weekend's BPG event in Hebron, Ohio. I had a great time, met some awesome folks, and got to check out some beautiful and very fast cars.

I've been a contributing writer for most of the Power TV online publications for over a year now, and some of you may have read my articles in the past. I have written a handful of stories regarding '80s Turbo Regals, TTA's, Syclones, and even one or two regarding the new 2011 Regal Turbo models.

These articles (save for the Syclone articles) would be found on our muscle car publication, Street Legal TV. But instead of making you guys take the time to dig them up, I have taken the liberty to share some of my work with all of you here, providing you with the appropriate links:

The recent tragedy of a 13-year old boy stealing a Camry, and hitting his 6-year old cousin, and eventually slamming into the side of a '87 GN. :(

Obviously, I plan on writing many more, and I would love your feedback on these articles. I'm currently in the process of writing the story covering the 2011 BPG/TTA Nats, and would greatly appreciate your input, pictures, videos, and any additional info you would be willing to throw my way.

As both a fan and an owner of a Turbo Buick, I want this story to make all of you in the Turbo Buick community proud, so any additional help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Thanks for your interest. I attended with a TTA. Made some passes and then cleaned up for the show. There are tons of pics and videos on turbotransam.com along with show winner results. If you need any other info PM me or the "father of this event" "phillyturbosix" here or on aforementioned site.
