A friend sent me stats on a car he knew about back in the day: 1972 Buick GSX Arctic white Black bucket seat interior 455 (not sure if it was Stage One or a regular 455) 4 speed Don't remember if it had AC or not. Likely sold by Lynch Buick, Chicago My best friend from high school ordered a 1973 El Camino 350 4 speed right after he graduated. A year later he ordered a 1974 Grand Am, which I have now. Amazing that right out of high school teenagers could order new 2 cars on a mechanic's salary! His uncle bought the 72 GSX new from a dealer in Chicago, probably Lynch Buick. My friend's cousin drove it most of the time. Summer of 1974 they swap the El Camino for the GSX for the weekend, so we could try it out. It was fast, but not scary fast, plus we wanted to be careful with it. I do remember it sucked gas like crazy and drew lots of attention. Sunday his cousin limps the El Camino back with the Saginaw 4 speed blown up from street racing. So much for being careful with each others cars! We had no idea how rare the GSX was. We were more into Pontiacs. His crazy cousin street raced it in the city all the time and had replaced the original shifter with a Hurst Super Shifter. A year later we heard he burned the Buick to the ground because he was involved in some kind of crime with it. That's what I was told, and have no evidence as to what actually happened. A year after that he was found dead in a Chicago alley from a drug overdose. My friend (who I lost track of) had the original Hurst 4 speed shifter out of it, but I doubt he would have it anymore. Ring a bell to anyone?
