Selling a 1970 Buick Skylark Gran Sport 455 AT. Medium blue with white vinyl top and interior. I am selling this car for a friend who had a stroke a couple of years ago and can no longer drive. Options include factory tach which works, front-rear sway bars, front spoiler, PS and AC which works good and blows ice cold. It was restored some years ago and is in great running and driving condition as it is one of the fastest cars I have ever driven. Owner tells me engine was completely rebuilt, balanced and blueprinted by a guy named Tuco The Legend, a well known engine builder in Seattle and he says it will run with a Hemi car as it has tons of power. Turbo 400 trans with automatic on the column. 10 bolt rear end. Not sure if numbers matching as I do not know a lot about Buicks. What I can tell you is body is rust free as I had the car on a rack and underside looks great with no rust anywhere. Floors and trunk are near perfect and frame rails are rock solid. Front and rear suspension have been completely rebuilt including new dual exhaust. Interior looks like new and all gauges and lights work as they should. Owner had a couple of aftermarket things installed including dual cooling fans, sound system and alarm which can all be removed if desire is to go back to stock. Pics speak for themselves I think but if anyone has any questions about the car please don't hesitate to ask as I will try my best to answer them. 619 929 8806. Car is sold as is.

Years ago, General Motors used Buick cars to test out the idea of a "smart highway" concept. More recently, GM has been talking up its award-winning Super Cruise semi-autonomous technology that will roll out with Cadillac and make its way to Buick. The LeSabre in the video above has nothing to do with any of that.

On Interstate 15 in Utah, a man driving this LeSabre got into an accident that rearranged the front end and set the horn on permanent blare. At the time of writing this, no one is sure what happened next, but the man ended up sitting in the snow in the highway median while his car carried on down the highway without him. Passing traffic stayed well to the right.
The 51-second video below provides a different take on our autonomous future. A local newscast on KUTV covered the story the evening of the incident, but the Utah Highway Patrol didn't have any update on the fate of the LeSabre. We'll take that to mean that Buick's take on Christine could still be out on the prowl... so watch out!
Buick may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of performance automobiles, but fans of the brand know what letters to look for. If you believe the reports, there's a new GNX and Grand National on the way, but in the meantime, Buick may offer more GS models to fill the void.

Currently, the Regal is the only model available as a GS (pictured above), packing the same 259-horsepower turbo four as the Regal Turbo but enhanced with key suspension, brakes and rolling-stock upgrades. As Car and Driver notes, similar upgrades could easily be applied to the Verano and LaCrosse, although maybe not the Encore or Enclave crossovers. Of course, Buick would still have to steer clear of Cadillac's Vsport line, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have a little room to play.
Buick is having a hard time keeping up with demand for its all-new Encore mini-CUV, according to a report from Automotive News. The stylish, lifted five-door went on sale in January, but dealers have reported that supplies have dwindled after the initial high demand, taking the proverbial "wind out of the sails."
General Motors admits that it underestimated demand for the diminutive Buick, which is built in Korea and sold as the Opel Mokka in Europe, where it's also seen success. Buick spokesperson Nick Richards told AN, "We increased production, so there have been a lot more landing within the last month."
Buick has done a booming business, though, even with its limited supply of Encores. With over 12,000 units sold in the first half of 2013, the small CUV is on pace to annihilate industry analysts' estimates, which predicted no more than 18,500 units in 2013. We're not entirely surprised. When we first drove the Encore late last year, Autoblog professed that we had no idea how sales would turn out, as the Encore wasn't really entering into an established segment. Even so, wefound a surprising amount to like in the Encore, enough that we "wouldn't bet against it" being a major success.
