    Congrats Tom!!! I was considering buying this one. I hate 72's.. However, a Stage 1 stick, with this color combination... Great buy!

    Hate 72's????
    72 is the best looking in its third year of production.
    71 they ditched the ugly 70 front and rear bumpers, then in 72 they added the black rubber accents and black headlight bezels creating the best looking of the 3 years.
    Lol, to each his own said the lady as she kissed the cow.
    70 may be the high compression, high HP model year, but I've never felt it was the best looking year.
    Probably didn't help my opinion may be biased due to the old man here in town that had a fire red/black vinyl top 72 GS here in town that I fell in love with when I was 14 years old.

    Tom... As I had said, this car, in this color combo, with a stick... The same with Sobotka's 72 Flame Orange that is now at Adams shop. Loved it! Just don't like the grille, rear bumper rubbers, or the faux wood on the door panels.. That's all. Again, congrats on a good buy! :)

    My reply was meant as light hearted, not offensive, I was kidding around.

    The one I have is a fully documented 72 - stage 1 - 4 speed (build sheet & Sloan doc.). It is Cortez Gold with a white and black interior. The car in my avatar was my Fathers 72 Buick Stage 1 four speed. The picture was taken in 1978. I believe the car is still alive but the drive train is long gone. Here is a picture of mine.

    1 step closer.
    Made it from the barn into the heated attached garage.
    Might even get the engine out before the weekend is over.
