    Welcome, looks like a fun car! This forum will help you get to know the car inside and out making for a lot more enjoyable experience. Using searches and member advise has helped me a lot over the last couple of years to bring back my 71 Skylark.

    I can echo what everyone has said so far. I firmly believe that you won't find another forum on the internet that is as helpful, knowledgeable, fun and generous as the people assembled here. Welcome to the brother (and sister) hood of Buicks!
