I bought my 72 skylark back in august of 09. I spent about 6 months looking for an old convertble to restore. My first choice was a 69 firebird convertible and I just about got one, but at the last minute I decided I couldn't afford one that was in good enough condition for me to work on. I had one of these some 30 years ago and loved the car. When I first saw this skylark I new nothing about Buick or skylarks. It was a straight car with low miles and it was priced with in my budget at just $8k. I drove the car for about six weeks and then it was time to move all of my woodworking tools to the side of the shop and put the Buick up on blocks for a while.
