    No, not of my life of car and parts buying:D:D:p...... "101 weekend projects for your 70-72 Buick GS" Looking back over the beater project and the Aquamist car, among many others, its amazing how many little spruce up projects Ive taken on that pay big dividends. Ive documented quite a few on here over the years. Its going to be hard limiting the book to only 101 :)

    I think it would be a best seller...well at least on here :)

    I hear you. :) just starting the one thing at a time process again. I try to do it every night right now, no matter how small the project is. Actually going to be nice to have a real excuse to just stay in the garage, get things done, and drink beer. Last weekend I got quite a bit done, hopefully more this weekend as I've got a couple projects planned instead of winging it.

    Pretty sure the guy who oversaw my cars restoration is selling books as well, “How to make high school auto shop class fun”, I’m not paying the 6.99 plus shipping, I get to enjoy the finished product every day when I look in the garage, and if I ever find the guy who sold them the 55 gallon drum of gloss black paint. . . @&$&@!

    Do It!! I'm sure you're a wealth of knowledge

    I've always thought, I should have recorded every single time I've worked on the Buick or any of my old projects to show the newer people how it's done, or how it can be done. Sometimes it's nice to see exactly how o do something, the little tips and tricks to getting something done, like a heater core/ box removal.

    You should write a book, Jay, but a real seller would be about how to get Buicks and parts super cheap. Especially the 'old widow' stories. Haha!

    Seriously, you have a good idea. It would have to have lots of pics though, fer guys like me that can't read.

    Maybe you could make a 'sticky' thread, that way we can cut you out of the profits...you could 'donate' your experience to v8Buick!

    That would be extremly boring writing a book. Maby hire a stenographer.
