    Only way I knew how to get rid of those .03 cent stamps! Great job setting this up Al!

He knew how hard Rogene worked in organizing the 15th Anniversary XLR reunion. God willing, we'll have more members for the 20th Reunion. See you guys and dolls then. Happy Holidays and Happy motoring in the XLRs.

I swear I asked for the group photo, not the cars behind as - to me, the XLR group is all about the friends and the cars are the means of getting us together. Anyway, the result is kind of cool and it is now sitting on my bar cabinet.
    I also received my Dash Plaques in the mail from our gathering. Thank you for sending them to me (was that Bob?) as we arrived late and l you had left by then.

    Anyway, always gotta love it when you get cool stuff in the mail. Really enjoying having the XLR down here in Florida for the winter!
    You are a genius. About a week or two after we returned home from BG (FYI) I was reading an article on Hagerty's News Letter email. Guess what they listed as one of the presently fastest appreciating vehicles in the collector market? Yup, a Suburban of the vintage and equipment of the one you recently purchased. Please share your 'crystal ball' sometime, OK?

    I know you are in Florida enjoying sun and warmth. Us? No warmth, and yes 'cold' High today was 19* and we have snow. It's been in this temp range for the past week, with lows around 9* to 10* at night. We are supposed to have a 'heat wave' this weekend.
    Warming up to around 32*.

    Hey CNC, if it makes you feel any better we have been suffering a cold snap here: way below average with a number of days in the mid 60's - but we are making up for that tomorrow with a higher than average 85 & sunny. Perfect timing as we are headed to the SWFL Nationals in Fort Meyers with our wagons: the 61 Oldsmobile and the 65 Malibu. It has been great having the X here too: it is the perfect four wheeled vehicle to go for a drive in to 'no where in particular'! Sadly the Harley's are suffering neglect as we have way too many toys here. We will be experiencing the Great White North soon enough though as we are headed home for Christmas for 10 days - gonna need to find my boots and mitts.

    So when you mention the Suburban: are you referring to the 1988 square body I bought for up home or the 99 Suburban we bought for here in Florida? I am guessing the 88!? We get a ton on compliments on the 99 here too. We just lowered the front end one more inch: only scuffs occasionally when you go over whoopty-bumps....... because "If it ain't scuffing - it's too high"!

    As for our Crystal Ball - it does not exist. We like to think of ourselves as Trend Setters. We buy something that no one else seems to care about - finesse it and make it so cool
    that everyone takes notice and the next thing you know everyone wants one! When we got our first wagon 18 years ago everyone said 'what do you want that for' and we thought 'seriously - wait till we are done'! That car in question: our 65 Malibu (it has gone thru a few revamps over the years) and she just won an award at the Menard's Super Chevy Show last month in Orlando and will be on their TV show airing tomorrow morning on Velocity. Living the dream! (all my cars are not all winners - I once owned a Gremlin back in my younger years)

    Anyway, thanks for remembering the Burb, if you still have that e-newsletter can you email that to me?

    TTYL Chuck & say hi to Shirley for us!

    I think I'd prefer your 60's and even and an occasional 85* to our present temps. I did say Hi to Shirley for you. Thanks! In fact she read your email with me. She says Hi back.

    I am referring to your 88 Suburban per The Hagerty Article. I will log onto their site and see if (?) I can find the article. If so, I will post it here. Not sure I can find it (?), but I'll give it a shot. Must admit you guys do some really neat well thought out and tasteful mods to your vehicles. On my list is to post our X on the Registry here, and put pictures of our other vehicles on the site in "Garage".

    Your 65 Malibu is a really nice vehicle as well. I can see why it won a trophy. Enjoyed the story about The Riviera.
    Sell it, then buy it back.

    My favorite thing is I actually enjoy doing my own work on our vehicles. Rebuilding engines, suspensions, etc. Recently took a deep dive in body work and repainting the truck. Actually turned out really nice after some false starts and novice mistakes. Sometimes accidentally tear up some knuckles in the process.
    "Stuff Happens!" --- Not quite what the bumper sticker says, but being Cadillac Owners, this is a 'refined family site'. Right?

    The nice part of your return to The Frozen Tundra, is you get to leave again, and return to Sunny Florida.
    Can't say I blame you a bit.

    God Bless,
    Charles and Shirley

    the person in charge of the bricks. I Was wondering if anyone from the reunion emailed the person in charge of the bricks. I thought before I left the hotel that I emailed the person. I even enclosed this pic of the faded bricks. I havenít got a response back from the person and was wondering if someone else here got a response. If not then could someone find out about the fading issue. Was very upset about this when I saw it and remember mentioning this to another member.
