Prewar Buick Registry

Welcome to the PreWar Buick Registry of the Horseless Carriage Club of America.  We are hereby joined with our BrassBuicks friends by adding our own Home Page

The Prewar Buicks Registry Group is a web-based, email discussion group located within the domain.  The group's purpose is listed on the BrassBuicks Home Page that can be easily found at or   and repeated here:

"This is the meeting place for anyone interested in the history, documentation, restoration and preservation of prewar Buicks (pre-1916) 2, 4 and 6 cylinder Buick automobiles, trucks and engines. Join with us in an international exchange of fact and fancy about these early examples of automotive engineering that provided much of the basic foundation for General Motors."

As the Prewar Buicks Registry Group continues to grow we need to continue to work together so that everyone can enjoy the camaraderie. It's nothing more than 'good list manners summarized below:

OFF TOPIC:  This list's topic is detailed in the paragraphs above.  Off-topic posters are subject to moderation of posts or removal from the list.  Absolutely NO POLITICAL TOPICS or PERSONAL ATTACKS ALLOWED.

REPLY SUBJECT LINE: Keep the subject line relevant to the current subject.  Often discussions (threads) change topic. Please add to or update the subject line to reflect the current topic.

THANKS TO ORIGINATOR: "Me too" and "Thanks" posts are fine IF they are directed to the originator and not the whole list.

SIGNATURES:  List etiquette calls for your full name and city/state at the end of each message. We call this the "Harold Sharon (from Pluto) Rule" in honor of a great supporter who has passed on.  We are too large of a group to remember all the nick-names, etc. that are sometimes used.  Every member should set up an automatic signature file offered within the “Signature” option in the left column on the web page.  Each posting that a subscriber makes shall contain their first and last names and city/state.  Missing the signature details within a posting shall bring down the subtle wrath of the list moderator(s). 

ATTACHMENTS: Photographs and other files can now be sent as attachments to the group.  Be sure to include full description in the posting.  Photos will be automatically resized for presentation and storage.
