This 1962 Buick Skylark has a very straight body, and all the glass and crome is very good. It has surface rust in side do to the wet wether we have here in the Seattle area. It was left parked outside with a side window down before I got it.

I listed it last december on an ebay auction, but bids were not high enough so I decided to keep it.

Now unfortionally I want to sell it. I have spent more time and money on it, but for the good.

I bought a very good red interior for it. (orig. from a 62, so it is old, but pretty good) I also bought brand new red carpet, and had the door panels repaired with red carpet.

I started repainting the interior red, but only got one door done. So sad to say, the painting needs to be done on the interior. Big job, and  I lots interest and don't have the time to finish. So I'm calling uncle before I get too deep into it.

There are no holes in the floor boards. I rust proofed the interior bottem with pro 15. To stop and seal the serface rust. Overall it looks great and makes a nice finish.

There is some rust in the body, but not allot. The paint is daul, and will need repainting of course.

The motor starts and runs very good. The sell also includes a rebuild 2 speed transmission. The one that is in it works great in forward, but slips in reverse.

 

Overall, feel it is a great car to restore and would make a very nice daily driver while you restore it.

Lutz dishes dirt on GM in latest Autoline Detroit

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.

38k GM eAssist hybrids recalled for circuit board, fire risk

Mon, 06 May 2013 13:27:00 EST

General Motors has issued a recall covering 38,197 2012 and 2013 model-year Chevy Malibu Eco, Buick LaCrosse and Regal sedans equipped with eAssist, and sold in the United States. The automaker will check the generator control module for proper operation. Only vehicles built before December 2012 are being recalled.
According to the automaker, a malfunctioning generator control module could slowly drain the battery, causing an indicator to light up in the dash. If that indicator is ignored, the driver may experience a stalling engine, and in some cases, "a burning or melting odor, smoke, and, in rare instances, a fire in the trunk."
GM says the issue is not with the eAssist battery pack; the smoke and fire comes from overheating of the control board. One trunk fire has been reported, but no injuries are known. Scroll down below for the official press release from GM.

GM investing $167m in Spring Hill for new midsize vehicles

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 18:59:00 EST

General Motors has announced a large investment in its Spring Hill, Tennessee facility. The former home of Saturn production will be getting a $167 million addition to a previously announced $183 million, to cover a pair of new midsize vehicles. The investment is expected to create 1,800 jobs at the factory.
That $350 million is being divvied up for a pair of programs at Spring Hill. The first will take the bulk of the money ($223 million) and create 1,000 of the 1,800 jobs, while the other will take the remaining $127 million and generate the leftover 800 positions. But GM says the investment will cover "midsize vehicle programs." So what could they be?
The leading candidate in our minds is a new crossover for Buick, called the Anthem, that will slot between the Encore and Enclave, but will be slightly smaller than the Equinox and Terrain. As we've explained, the new model will likely be the first product to sport GM's new D2UX platform, which will eventually replace both the Delta and Theta platforms. Spring Hill is already building the Equinox, so there could be some credence to this theory.
