    About time to look into replacing my top on a 64 Special. Any recommendations on a good shop in the KC area? This is a manual top, plastic window. Thanks

    Mike Garrison(RACEBUICKS here on the board) in Topeka has done them. His shop is High Torque Racing Autobody and Upholstery in Meriden, Ks just N of Topeka.

    He did the restoration on Jamie McClinton's (65specialconver here on the board) 65 Special several years ago.

    Tell him Jim in Kck with the 66 Skylark sent ya.

    Jim,
    Thanks, I'll check that out. Was Jamie's the red 65 GS with the black top? That's the only other 64 /65 A Body I have seen around here. Did he do one for you? Any idea on the cost?
    Thanks!

    Jim,
    Thanks for the website information. Looks like another Buick guy. Nice pictures of Jamie's 64, don't see many of those, especially the Special model. That's nice looking Skylark you have there yourself.

    I meant a 65 Special. Too early in the morning.

    Get a premium brand top. Those are made by Robbins or Electron. Buy the top from the shop that installs it. In order to get a good price, the shop needs to be a dealer for the brand.

    Michael,
    Thank You for the pictures. Always good to work with "Buick" people. Already talked to Nick and got the information I needed. I'll schedule something within the next few weeks.
