'70 Buick GSX

Recommended Posts

I built this one a few years ago. Back in the day, this was how just about every muscle car around here looked. Hi Jackers, M-50s, Cragars, headers and Cherry Bombs were the rule seemed like. If your car didn’t have those, you were out! So, I made sure I added all of those to this build. I also made a cowl hood scoop in the shape of the Buick shields to make it a little different. Other than those pieces, it's just a simple build. Paint is Tamiya Pure White.

Nice. Nailed the period correct look.  Right down to the yellow plug wires. You just weren't cool without them.

Superb GSX Roger!  Perfect stance too! White is not the sexiest color but I think it's absolutely perfect for this Buick, it's my favorite color option for the GSX.  I love it!!!

Beautiful Buick brawler ! 

Appears spot-on ; a wonderfully-executed period piece .

Reminds me of the kinds of cars I'd see on Whittier Boulevard / Bob's Big Boy back in the 70's - c.1982 .

I've always loved the stylling touches of the Buick A-bodies (right up there with Oldsmobiles of the same era) , and the 1970-1972 are prime examples ; your vision brings it home .

As others have mentioned, you got the time period perfectly. I like the clean white color on this. I had a '67 El Camino and a '72 Nova SS that both had the stink bug look. Thanks for the memories.

Thanx to everyone for the great comments! I had plans of building the '70 Mustang, '70 Chevelle, '71 'Cuda and '69 Judge (all from Monogram) in the same style. I built the 'Cuda. But, I never got around to the rest of them.
