I am confused Mark. Surely you realise that although other years of Buick Skylarks and GS models are just as good, the 70-72 is most popular.Originally Posted by MGSCP
If Goodmark cannot see a market for the most popular body style, why would they make parts for the less popular bodystyles?
The chances to get parts for other years made increases a lot if they see that there is a market for the most popular models. Getting a concentrated request for specific parts is best because it makes the question Goodmark needs to answer "How could we have overlooked this?" Rather than "How do they expect us to make such a huge range of parts for so many diverse years?"
Without a concentrated focus on a specific body style, the situation stays the same as the Skylark vs Chevelle problem to begin with: not enough people will want the parts for them to make it worth their while.
I'm sorry, but the 70-72 is the most popular style. Personally I like the 67 and 70 models best, but diluting our efforts to get Goodmark to see that there is a market they can cater to is a mistake, that's why the effort was to key on the 70-72 models.
I want to get parts for your car too, but surely you can see the wisdom in this approach: we aren't just a bunch of guys wanting various parts, sudden;y we're a bunch of guys with a specific goal for certain parts. that opens the way for more diverse parts selection. having a bunch of different body styles on this list doesn't have the same effect, unfortunately.
This has nothing to do with the fact I own a '70, it's just the way it is. For Goodmark, they look at the bottom line. Try to see it from their point of view: they are more likely to get the ball rolling if they see it's easy to do it. One body style is the easiest way to get things started, and the most popular is the obvious choice
