New from Long Island NY

Post by Blue Meanie on Fri Jun 22, 2012 3:45 am

Hello all. My name is Sam, from Long Island,NY. I'm. A long time fan of the 3rd gen A Bodies. I've previously owned a 1975 Luxury LeMans coupe, a 1975 Malibu coupe, and a 1973 Luxury Lemans sedan. I just purchased my first Buick A Body - a 1973 Buick Regal! A true barn find - its been off the road and in storage since 1990! I stumbled upon it on eBay a couple of hours before the auction ended, took a chance, and my bid met the reserve (which was absurdly low).

Here are some pics from the auction. The car is in North Carolina and in the process of being transported. If its as nice as it appears in pictures I'll be very happy.











I'll be happy to post more pics when it gets here. Can't wait!

Glad you found us here! Nice to have some Buicks represented. Pictures sure indicate it's in nice condition.

Coincidently, I've been picking parts off a twin to your car that arrived in one of the local yards a month or so ago. Too bad they all didn't survive!

Who knows why someone decides to junk a car like this? There's some rust in in, but it's not that bad.

And, yes...that IS a Porsche 914 sitting next to it! Good eye, compadre!
