    Default Inherited 68 Buick Skylark

    Hello everyone. I've been lurking here for about 6 months and decided to join in the discussions. First up, my father inlaw left my wife and I his beloved 68 Lark. He bought it new in 67 and married his lifelong love in 68. We have pics of them driving away from church in it. They put 297,000 miles on it. It was restored about 7 years ago. Well, the body and interior were. The engine had never been touched and ran perfect until the timing chain jumped a few months back. In the middle of building the 350 now. Thank you for all the knowledge on this forum. You can not put a price on it. With the help of this community I hope to be as good of a steward as Jack was with handling this piece of Buick history. I want to hand it off as close to intact as I can but still have a blast driving it!

    Two more posts, THEN you can post pictures. You can't until you have 10 posts. Of course, you can always use photo bucket or similar to host the photos.

    None of your photos are showing and when I go in as a moderator, I can see where the link says something link "fake url". You sure of your link?

    No, that won't work. You can get a photo bucket (or similar) account and copy from there, but you can't upload directly from your phone. You can also upload to this board, using the "manage attachments" radio button. Really, easiest way to upload a photo is with photo bucket.

    This image came from my photo bucket account:
