I agree, they dont even sell a REGAL anymore. Last year made was 2020. Not sure what they dont, especially a Grand National (or GN Wagon!)Regardless of the uptick for the last two years, the nats has a problem that it can't control:
Buick hasn't sold a car worth anybody's attention in 35 years. The market is shrinking as the owners die and the cars are blown up, crashed, or acquired by collectors that don't go places with them.
If the goal is to get attendance back up, GSCA is going to have to subsume another marquee and get some new hardware and their associated youngin's coming to the events.
I get your point 100%. That being said Buick’s have always been the black sheep of you will, along with Olds & Pontiac. The Cutlass is a Skylark, a Skylark is a GTO, a Skylark is a Chevelle, so on & so forth. Why? Fuck if I know. It’s the GM way & it has been for decades. It’s nice to own a car a bit out of the norm for me.Agree, they need to open it up to some other muscle cars to get the numbers up some.
Feeling this postBack in the day there were many BBB's there. Not so much any longer.
Was fun to watch the wheelies, the noise....
These were the cars that started the GSCA.
Most of the "og's" are gone.
Bob Petersen, Jack Pendzemas, the Minnesota "gang", Jim Rock, Alan Liverman, and many others, all put on great shows.
Anyone that's been around for a lot of yrs can remember the Buick vs the Hemi war!
However, times change, people are lost, hobbies are changed.
I'm one of the older guys, and have been a car nut, drag racer, since 1955.
All of my younger day street racer crowd has long since gone to the big race in the sky, too.
I've also seen more than 2/3's of my HS class pass.
I'm one of the more fortunate.......
