    Finding 4-speeds that haven't been hacked up is getting to become very difficult with these. If I'm not mistaken, the 1.9 was the only engine available in the US for the GT. I don't know what that t-handled cable is just to the right and below the steering wheel (choke maybe).
    Other than the driver's seat back release looking slightly rigged and the question mark of what's under those seat covers, this is a surprisingly well preserved GT.

    These little rascals are surprisingly pretty numerous here in Porkopolis. Must have been a couple of local Buick dealers aggressively pushing them back in the day. Do watch very carefully for rust on anything of that vintage from around here, as we don't spare the salt come wintertime.

    Umm…seriously, did you take a close look at the body with the holes in the rockers and rust everywhere? I honestly can't believe that it has been bid to where it's at right now…and I like these cars.

    The broken (apparently) seat back takes me back to the early eighties. A fairly porcine friend of mine…and im talking Humpty Dumpty round and weighing in at least two and a half bills, pulled up in front of my trailer in a Opel Yellow 71 or 72. As he existed the car somewhat laboriously I was amazed at how he was able to a) get in the car b) sit behind the wheel c) exist said vehicle. It was like a balloon being squeezed through a knothole in the wall. Just amazing.

      Amazing how the hips and the coke bottle shape on the green one make it look like a z3M coupe from that angle.
