    Buick Skylark GS 350 - Not mine sadly

    We had some friends around for lunch today. While the kids were playing, I got to have a look at their Dad's new toy - a Buick Skylark GS 350.

    This is a very sweet car - 56,000 original miles, and was restored about 10 years ago.

    The motor is the original Buick 350 V8, but has a mild cam, bigger carby and a few other bits. The interior is original, even down to the AM radio and windscreen imbedded aerial.

    It was a Minnesota car, imported into Australia about 12 months ago. I am hugely jealous - sadly I could not see space in my budget in the near future.







    I love the sticker on the window - about as American as it gets

    My parents had one of those when I was a kid - though not a GS. Dark green I believe.

    Nice pics, nice car!

    NICE!
    Too bad that monster didn't have the 455 Stage 1. (or 2 depending on the year)

    The guy who owns it only drives it once a month or so. He has to relearn driving a left hand drive each time he gets in it. I didn't get any shots of it, but the interior looks amazing as well.

    The car is not concours standard as the bodywork resto was not quite 100%, but it is spotless and looks as good as it would have when it came off the showroom floor.

    I bet it is fun, especially passing on a 2 lane.

    Very clean looking.

    Awesome car. I don't know that I've seen more than three or four of them my entire life. Your friend is cool!
