There are 2 more that I dont have pics of right now as well as a couple of parts cars.
We still want pictures of the OP Buick!!!!!
1973 lesabre custom
To Hemikiller: You got it back again? If so I bet you like the posi that I had Jim Weise put on it. Still had a chattering clutch when I sold it a few years ago. Hope that has been fixed by now.
Moz: I never really knew how great the black/gold 71GSX clone was set up before I let it go. I think that I sold it to someone in the Kansas area. Beautiful car. Another one that got away, as they say.
My 70 GS Stage1 after just washing it. Wet concrete not leaks.

69 GS 400 (Motion Equipped)
71 GSX (Stage 1 Auto)
@ Duane, hey I never knew Buick made a Skylark ute!....Id like one of those!
My Australian friend Bob Smith, out of Melborne, calls them Utes. It's just something I pieced together in my backyard out of 6 cars. It's been done for 20 years now.
“It’s just something I pieced together...” is like DaVinci saying “oh, those are just some sketches I made”.
Is there a build thred on the xcamino
.....well DaVinci also did sketches.
No, there is no X-Camino build thread. I built that back in the day when we used "FILM" in cameras. I do have a "baby book", where I have pictures showing how I built it. Maybe some day I can scan the pics and put something together.
Once I got the doors figured out, and the front of the quarters put in, it wasn't too bad, that is until I got to the back of the rear wheelhouses. At that point I started pacing until I figured it out.
If you are going to the GS Nats, or MCACAN this year I can bring the book.
PS. I am the only guy that can go tailgating in my GSX. It is registered as a GS Truck.
No I won't be at Nats this year but I will make my way out there. You swapped the grill too?
Xcamimo blew my mind
WOW!..Certainly a work of art, sure lots of us would like to see some scanned build photos!
Aussies invented the ute way back when they started chopping the backs off 30s Fords and making utility vehicles for the farm that could be driven into town.
Your Buick Skylark GSX ute is the best!
I know you had a little one, and as you can't make it out east for a while, I will post some pics of the build on this site. Give me a little time and I will start a thread.
PS. I started with a wrecked 72 El Camino shell & frame, and pieces off a rotted out 70 GS 455 and 70 GS 350, plus bits and pieces off 3 other cars, so I basically changed everything. Consider it a GM marriage.
a marriage made in Buick Heaven and consumated on the street
Well one! ....right colour too
Got it in high school fall of 1979
