    Centurian Convertible

    I tend to agree with you Brad, but look at the green material on the front seat when it is flipped forward. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the color combo. Although the money doesn't look too bad. It needs a thorough detail.

    Craigslist scam or score??

    I'd be on my way with a trailer if I was within an hour of that place.
  6. I've attended this show for the last several years now, and don't plan on missing any in the future. The Muscle Car and Corvette National Show is a Who's Who of performance cars. Each show has several feature displays for those special groups of cars that deserve the recognition. This year, there is a feature on the 70-72 GSX. Taken from their website: This special display puts the spotlight on the wild Buick GSX models. Certainly not your typical Buick, These cars, produced in low numbers from 1970-72, were the wildest Buicks ever to leave Flint. With the Saturn Yellow and Apollo White versions in 1970 offering 455 cubic inches of muscle, they demanded respect. Flowing up with the '71 and '72 versions, they certainly earned the respect that continues to this day. https://www.mcacn.com/ Among the X's in attendance, the one-and-only 70 GSX show car (known as the Prototype) will be on display. Also, the only known black 71 GSX will be there. I've been challenged to get a 72 GSX ready for this show, and it is no easy task. Some of you are following my progress on Facebook or on v8buick.com ...so I will spare the details. Regardless of completion, we will have it there for representation of the 1972 model year. This particular car, aside from being only one of 44 X's produced in 72, is a Stage1 4 speed. One of only TWO built with this combination. The other one is MIA. It's a real privilege to be able to work on this car. I can't wait for the show!

    2019 National Meet Host Hotel Rates

    I called the hotel number directly but I was on hold for 20 mins before I got someone. Maybe it kicked me to the corporate answering deal...I’ll try again later.
  9. So I just booked a room at the Sheraton Midwest City...and the BCA registration form and flyer all state $119 per night. The person on the phone is adamant that there is nothing less than $152 per night, even with the club block of rooms. Has anyone else booked a room yet? And where is the discrepancy?
  10. I had a whole bunch of rusty blotches on my 60 convertible, and did the same thing. Just went over the whole car with a fine brush and covered up all the rusty bits with white paint. Instant 10 footer....as opposed to a 40 footer LOL

    It could have been added later at some point, but was never an option.

    Sometimes I feel like there is nothing more tedious than window adjustments.

    1958 Wells Fargo Limited to be Auctioned

    Very curious to see what it brings. There are lots of people out there that really want this car...me being one of them. If I had deep enough pockets, you bet I would be doing whatever it takes.
