I remember this wonderful undertaking as well. When people witness the good deeds of others they become better men themselves. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Update time!

It was 13 years ago today that Buttercup ran for the first time in many years. For the newbies here there's video back on page 31 of this thread.

This past October I visited Mary and we took Buttercup out to the airport. That turned into an adventure! Light bucking on the way out there worsened as BC warmed up. On the way back she stalled at a light and wouldn't restart. The points had closed up. A few minutes on the side of the road with a screwdriver and we blasted back home. Looking forward to next time!

And today is also Mary's daughter's birthday. Happy Birthday Elissa!

Viva Buttercup!......and all those who contributed encouragement, parts and their valuable time and expertise. This thread should be required reading for newbies who don't remember it. The spirit and generosity of the 914World community is embodied on these pages.

So glad to see Buttercup still on the road and looking great. I still have the Christmas tree ornament Mary sent to all who participated....thanks Mary.

All the best...Marc

This still resides on my mantle.

The official motto of PCA is "It's not the cars, it's the people." 914World doesn't have an official motto. We don't need to say it. Things like this speak louder than words.

So nice to see this thread! I had a chance to meet Mary last October when I was passing through and we had lunch together. Even though we had never met, it was like old friends who had known each other for years. Next time I'll plan better so I can see Buttercup too!

13 years and still happy memories of that weekend wrenching on Buttercup. Why not plan a 15 year reunion? See how many of US are still running (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Last time some of us flew in and went through the parts to see what was needed before the event. It would be great to drive next time.
