Scott, I've been checking in on the site periodically, but this is my first post. You've done a terrific job with this site, and I appreciate your fine effort and the participation here.

No, I don't have a 1960 Oldsmobile -- but I do think they're cool.

Nonetheless, I hope that I can encourage you a little bit regarding plans for the 50th anniversary.

I have been actively involved with 1959 Buick enthusiasts, who have come together through a dedicated discussion forum much like this. One of our members took the initiative two years ago to apply for a separate division status within the Buick Club of America, and this has further mobilized the collector interest regarding this particular model year.

We began talking in 2006 or 2007 about plans for a 50th anniversary celebration to be held during 2009. We are fortunate that the Buick Club opted to hold its annual National Meet in Colorado Springs during summer, 2009. We decided to combine our event with the National Meet, and began publicizing our plans through the club's national magazine. We also persuaded the editor to devote two issues of the club magazine this year to coverage of the 1959 Buick, and collected owner articles and photos from at least fifteen owners to contribute to the magazine.

For the last three years, we have asked 1959 owners to submit high-resolution digital photos of their '59's to one of our members, who selects photos and submits them to CafePress, who creates, prints, and ships calendars through its website. Our '59 Buick group receives $3 for each calendar sold, and we have the benefit of high-quality calendars of our favorite cars. Here's the current calendar. I organized the front cover photo shoot near Seattle:

http://calendars.cafepress.com/item/200 ... /324744983

As we began taking steps toward the 50th anniversary event in Colorado Springs, we began working with one of the '59 owners in that area. This couple has taken leadership for planning a cool driving tour and banquet for all of the '59 Buick owners and enthusiasts in attendance. We'll have ladders available to shoot group photos of all the cars, as well as a display area for '59 Buick models, literature, dealership signs, and other memorabilia. We're working with an artist on original artwork for an event poster.

What's the response been? Amazing! The 1959 Buick, like the 1960 Oldsmobile, had not attracted as much collector attention as some of the other model years from the mid-1950's or mid-to-late 1960's, but we have seen tremendous interest. I have been hearing from 1959 owners who are planning caravans of these cars from Atlanta, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City, northern California, etc., and I'm organizing a caravan of at least six '59's from Washington state and British Columbia. I fully expect that we'll have the largest gathering of 1959 Buicks since 1959.

What's my point in sharing all of this? My point is that anything you guys might wish to accomplish in terms of a 50th anniversary celebration is possible. All that's required is for someone to take the initiative, reach out to the '60 Olds owners who are not yet aware of this website, and plan an event. If you plan it and you get the word out, the 1960 Oldsmobiles will come.

Scott, when we head with our caravan to Colorado Springs, we'll leave in late June and spend the first night in St. Regis, Montana, then head down to Ennis, MT for the following night. Perhaps we can connect with you while we're in western Montana. We'd enjoy sharing with you how we've organized our caravan and our final plans for the 50th anniversary event.

I'm actually really surprised nobody has responded to this... What a bunch of great ideas 8) . The calendar idea is a great one...I'm also a member of earlycj5.com (I've got a '55 Willys Jeep too), and they do a calendar every year. I got a shot of a '48 CJ2A in it last year. I'm going to shoot for something like that for '60 Olds owners for 2010 I think. That's one of those "why didn't I think of that?" moments :). I'll have to put something up on the home page about it, and ask for entries.

As for the 50th, it sounds like you guys really have your stuff together! I'd love to pick up the reigns and lead the way myself, but honestly I just don't think I'd have time. I'd be happy to work with anyone organizing events in any way I can, and let this website be a portal for getting the info out... I've just got so much going on right now it's just silly though...full time job, wife, two kids (number three due in July) a photography business I'm trying to get going...I have an extremely small amount of free time right now :oops: . Soooo...who wants to be in charge? :?: . BTW, has anybody asked Dick about this? I don't remember ever hearing...

And I'd love to meet up with you guys if possible...our baby is due July 6th, so it might depend on how late "late June" is...I might not be available :P . I'd love to shoot some pics of the cars too...like I said, I do photography as a side business, and I'd love to get a chance to shoot a few pics. Once in a lifetime opportunity, for sure!

Scott, thanks so much for your reply.

We'll be in St. Regis on the evening of June 26, and will be in Ennis the evening of June 27.

Let's try to connect if at all possible. I'll be checking back in regularly between now and June, and will make sure you have my cell phone number, etc.

Yes, do keep in touch. That'll be dangerously close to the due date for our baby, but we're really hoping he's born closer to his actual due date. Both our other boys were early, so we're crossing our fingers...

Well, Still19 and I were talking about the 50th at a recent show. It would be great to get a group together for an "official" 1960 Olds Club Meeting. Maybe get a picture to post etc. A bake sale to raise money to bring all the international people in! I'm always amazed that the Majors have kept it going all these years. All the people they've met via the internet, phone, letters. It all seems so "matter of fact" for them.
