Just thought i would add a picture of our best car in our American car club! It a Buick Skylark.
I hope you like it. It belongs to a guy called Noel. Anyway, bye for now,
Vectis Yanks - Kate x
Its pretty nice. What engine is it running?
Poor girl, couldn't have her club's link in her sig now she hates us....
I dont like it
I'm sorry about my sig... I didn't realise, its my own fault for not
reading the forum rules. :oops: :doh:
Noels car is running a 7.5 engine. He has done it over 5 years, in his spare time. Here are some pics of it when he first got it. Sorry they are not great pics. :ohcrap:
Its a nice car but just not my style. Ive never really liked the skylark. Looks like theres been alot of progress made on it
Yeah, lots of work. Also, my hubby is restoring a 3rd gen 1982 trans am. He
hopes to have it done by xmas. Here are a few pics of when he started it

Anyway, thats it, lol. I hope you don't mind me putting all these pictures on here. Bye for now.
Looks like youve got a lot of work ahead of you. Good luck
Eh looks good from the windsheild back. I dont like the grill with its pointyness. flaten it n itll be good for me atleast. But of course, its not my car.
That shape is stock. Flattening it would look like the Chevelle it was
Here's a completely stock Skylark, from a slightly different angle. It's the kind of styling that makes classic '60s American muscle desireable.
Dude, you are a dudess, with a fine ass car :laughing:
And wouldnt you know it, the Chevelle is my dream car.
Yeah, I've noticed that you have a fairly narrow range of likes, and
anything outside that seems to be pretty much crap to you.
Sad, really, the lack of appreciation people seem to want to have anymore.
4 divisions of GM at the time had variations on that A body chassis. The Pontiac one was the Tempest/GTO which was also very pointy...
But than agian, my first musclecar, and a car I loved, was a '71 Torino GT 429, which is even pointier yet... (kind of like this one)
Oh god that GTO is damn sexy, and I wish that I could have been a teenager in your era Chris, all those famous and infamous muscle cars, damn, a 71 Torino, let me just speak for everyone and say you lucky bastard :laughing:
I was born in 88 and i own a 73 nova. Why do you need to live in the era to enjoy it. And im about to invest in another nova. I think the guys got a lincoln continental im definetly interested in. I love mafia looking cars. GTO= awsome. I love the GTO its just not as much of a definded point in the grill.
I was born in 84 and I didn't get one
Well go buy one than.
OMG, you retarded? I already have 4 cars and with gas prices like this it would be hard
Well, living in the era had the advantage that the cars were simply used cars. And there were still a lot of them available. We didn't have to settle for a 4 door later Nova, as a '69 SS396 could be had cheap. I ended up owning 3 Mustang fastbacks, including a '70 Mach 1 and a '70 BOSS 302. I've had a Trans Am, a Dodge Charger, a Pontiac Ventura (the Pontiac nova), and a '66 Chevelle SS w/454 (not the stock engine)
I love you :laughing:
No im not retarded. Im not a psychic. how was i supposed to know you had that many cars already. I was being a smartass.
And i was being myself, nice to meet you ass cracker
Nice to meet you too.I hope we can get to know eachother :thumbs: .
Looks like steven has found a new friend. :thumbs:
Yeh i like headbangin too :banghead: :thumbs: .
