    Had a Stage 1 car years ago and ended up having to let it go as a trade in to "Friendly Motors" (Joe Self Used Cars) in Wichita Kansas in summer 1989. I am NOT in a position to buy it back but do have some memories and basic background that I can share if anyone here owns the car.

    The folks that got the car after me were either managers or at min employed at the used lot for Joe Self. I didn't get the impression they bled Buick blood so it may have bee sold since then. Their plan was to paint the car CANDY APPLE RED. Not sure if they did. It is originally a white bench car.

    Sticker on bumper was Bakersfield AFB if I recall. I want to say the car was originally sold new in Wichita Kansas in May 1970 (BEN ROBINSON BUICK INC ??) but not sure why I have that memory - hopefully not a false one.

    It was NOT a Stage engine when I got it but I did convert the heads to large valve.

    446370H343188 (I have one of the older Kansas titles with KS Dep Rev 1987 envelope)

    Wish everyone was as thoughtful as you! With all the flippers just trying to making a dime in the collector car market, good info from caring owners falls by the wayside. Great post BTW! Kudos.

    Really hoping it turns up by a Buick enthusiast... I have a few more pics if that happens. I know who I got it from and who had it before them. The selfish side says I just want to know it survives and doing well. Thanks for the kind words.

    I'm not so keen on visiting with the folks that had the car immediately after me. They were pretty rude. Maybe time has mellowed them out some :Do No:

    Have you contacted Wayne Roberts or Sloan with the VIN to see if they have had a request for information on the car?

    Not a bad idea... dropped note just in case.

    69GS400s ...my own amusement ride!

    contact Marco at stage1registry.com and see if he has it listed ... he doesn't list the last 6 vin digits on his info pages for privacy reasons but does have that info

    This would be great as a separate page on this board where anyone could post about old GS's they've owned.

    Dano--We use Lost and Found for that purpose.

    Small bump with title I "re" found after a move across the planet.
