Hey you've done a good job on that Buick, that wasn't an easy task, just maybe the body surrounding the rear taillights that was more "flat" or aligned with them ( I'm not sure if I'm clear here... :unsure:  ) B)

Very nice and cool!... I always wanted to convert one into a Pontiac Grand Am....love those cars!   Nice save for a car that would have been just parts.

Dude! Awesome resurrection! 

 

Nice job saving that very rarely seen kit. My brother would also be pleased as punch; he loves his '70s cars! (Oddly, he's my YOUNGER brother, and I love 80s cars... weird...).

 

You did a tonne of work, and it looks nice!

Grzegorz - This has got to be your finest conversion ! While I certainly admire all of your work , it is this one which truly hit the mark !

It would be nice to see this cast as a "trans-kit" !

Nice job on that. For a real challenge, I'd like to see someone do a Century 4-door with the goofy lock setup and the super-long integrated pontoon fenders.

 

Oh, and someone to say "Who loves ya, baby?" wouldn't hurt, either!
