GNX Update ...got an e-mail from former VP at McLaren who was responsible for the ASC conversion of the GN to a GNX and owns the final prototype that was used at the production plant as the "Master"for quality purposes. This will be a not to miss event

To introduce myself, in 1986-7, I was a vice president at McLaren responsible for the business interface with ASC and was the McLaren program director on the GNX program. From the time the model was conceived at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway until the final car was delivered, I led the McLaren product development and production support efforts on the program. (See the GNX book for my verification) I also own what is plated as Car000 which is the final prototype vehicle listed in the book and the one that was used in the production plant as a 'master" vehicle for quality purposes. This car has been mostly in storage until recently and now has about 1100 miles on it. I have shown it at private shows and it has been on display at the Woodward Dream cruise a couple of times.

I just received a letter that was sent to Wiley McCoy at McLaren telling about the GNX event next year and requesting speakers to come down to Ohio. I can tell you that even though I have been "off doing other things" since the end of my time at McLaren, I have a sincere passion about this project that transcends all of my other career work.

I would be happy to talk to you about participating in the event, my car and the program.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Louis Infante

I have verified this information and Rick aka X Ray will be also attending.

Wow things are really shaping up for the Buick Performance Group Class of 1987 event...We have Doug Nigro from GNXRegistry.org doing a power point presentation on the GNX We also have Brad Conley's GNX prototype as well as Rick Hunts GNX and all the information he can provide as well as Luis Infante who was VP at ASC McLaren and owns the car that was used for quality control at ASC. there also some other surprises that the BPG is going after...

we are trying to acquire a GNX engine on a stand from the Sloan museum,. We also have some of the engineers and production staff that were involved with the GN coming back as they had so much fun last year. We also have Lawrence Gustin who authored book on complete history of Buick and also about founders of GM. He is a genius and probably will do a presentation for us on history of Buick. He is getting me in touch with Mike Doble, head person in charge of GNX project and also David S. Sharpe, Chief Engineer of the GNX. Also Rick Hunt who has more GNX prototype and memorabilia than anyone will be there and former VP of ASC McClaren with GNX 000. Also going after Lloyd Reuss former Gen Manager of Buick and who actually became President of GM and his son is now head of N. American operations. He was Chief Engineer of Buick when GN came out as well. Also going after Bill Porter and Wayne Kady who designed the cars and Marty Schorr who wrote GNX book and was big in the PR version. We will have Wayne Sherman to do a presentation on tech for the Turbo cars and hopefully his friend Al Tomka will attend with his 79 Turbo Coupe again and talk about his work as Rod and Piston engineer for 3.8 block. just confirmed Dennis Kirban and Richard Clark will judge the GNX's and 87 GN's
