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.

Ever look at a concept car from a foreign auto marque like Opel and wonder what relevance it will have to you as an American consumer? Well, we'll tell you: at least as far as the Opel Monza concept goes, it could mean a lot.
Thu, 14 Mar 2013 19:14:00 EST
Speaking with Automotive News at the Paris Motor Show, Opel chief Karl-Thomas Neumann said, "You will see the Monza when you see the next Insignia." And the Insignia, we needn't point out, is essentially ported over to American showrooms as the Buick Regal.
The relationship between the Regal and Insignia only stands to grow closer as Opel design chief Mark Adams has also been charged with tightening the bonds between the two automakers positioned on opposite shores of the Atlantic. Adams also intends to imbue the next Insignia with more "premium brand values" in order to "add polish to the brand." Which in turn means that the Regal will be designed to look more upscale, too.
The whole "SUVs as dinosaurs" trope has become something of a threadbare cliché among auto writers, but that doesn't mean the wider world of consumers has caught on to the Jurassic nature of our line of thinking. That's what General Motors appears to be betting on, at least. Just check out Buick's first television spot for its 2013 Encore, the tiny crossover that is pushing the Tri-Shield into territories unknown while looking to outrun the brand's reputation as a refuge for elderly clientele.

Set to air this weekend on ESPN during the NCAA college basketball tournament, the ad plays up the Encore's maneuverability and surprising interior space by setting the baby Buick amongst a herd of lumbering CG dinosaurs created by Tippett Studio, the folks behind Hollywood blockbusters like Jurassic Park, Ted, and the Twilight series of films.
We can't help but snigger a little - while the Encore is indeed surprisingly roomy, nimble, and composed, our first drive found it to be glacially slow, too... not unlike a certain prehistoric race of animals. Check out the commercial below and judge for yourself.
For a company with a long tradition of grand touring convertibles, it's almost unseemly that General Motors doesn't offer a properly relaxed four-seat convertible in North America. There's the Chevrolet Camaro, of course, but it's not big on rear-seat space and it doesn't offer that sort of serene demeanor that many open-air buyers crave. We're thinking of something more refined and, dare we say, elegant. Something a bit closer to the Opel Cascada.
The General's front-wheel drive convertible went on sale in Europe this year, and while it seemed like a natural fit for its Buick brand in America, it's never been sold here. That may be about to change, however. Back in June, CEO Dan Akerson hinted he'd like to see the Cascada available in the US, and now there's word from Edmunds that importation "could happen soon." That's according to an unnamed insider at the company.
