It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.. So the story begins with my ownership of this fine green 72, how I got it can be found here: http://www.v8buick.com/index.php?threads/my-gran-d-return.321659/#post-2684660 Had an amazing summer/ fall cruising the shows and driving as much as possible. The car even had a cameo at this little event: http://www.v8buick.com/index.php?threads/buicks-in-weddings.325810/ So at last winter came and it was time for me to do my little improvements. Here is where I caution all would-be restores to beware the dangers of the rabbit hole and how deep it can lead you. But as my Buick buddy would remind me.. doing this would make your 9 car a 10. (Sriley) Now I will say that the car needed nothing to perform, I am strictly going on this adventure to preserve what I already have. And in the process not to give Mr. Cook a heart attack for diving in to his beloved former ride.. So here we go..
