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.

Good news, boys and girls (well, at least those of you who still like shifting for yourselves). Buick got in touch with us to correct some information that it had mistakenly announced; namely, that the 2015 Verano will lose its optional six-speed manual transmission. Apparently, that announcement was incorrect, and the compact sedan will indeed continue to offer a manual option for 2015, despite what we're certain is a low take rate. Additionally, the Desert Dusk Metallic paint that was said to come as part of an Appearance Package is no longer part of the deal. With that out of the way, we now return you to your regularly scheduled automotive-obsessive broadcast...

The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."

Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
Follow the link to see all the winners and read about why they were chosen.
Not Luxury. Not Sport. Not Buick. Not Bad.
Those of you who still think of the Buick Verano as some sort of callously badge-engineered, gussied up version of the Chevrolet Cruze ("Why would anyone spend that much money on Buick's Cruze?" you may have been heard to mutter) have got the wrong idea. Entirely. Even in its most modest form, the Verano turns out to be a sedan that is feature-rich, insulated from wind and road noise in proper luxury car fashion, pretty good to drive and not bad to look at in the new school of high-nosed pedestrian-impact-regulated fashion. In a less modest form then, one that attaches the word "Turbo" to the moniker and plops a force-fed 2.0-liter four-cylinder under the hood, the Verano is downright interesting.
Of course, "interesting" is rarely a descriptor that fills one with lust - and so it goes with this example. There are two competing forces within this near-premium subcompact sedan, and the balance struck between them must resonate with any potential customer before the Verano Turbo can become a serious purchase consideration.
