    Well I was digging through my parts today, getting ready to list some stuff for sale, and I found 2 original Build sheets mixed in with the parts.

    I think I identified the owner of the one sheet but I have no idea where the other came from so .....................

    If anyone knows who owns this car I would like to get him the build sheet.

    The sheet has about 1/3rd missing so I can't see the vin number and some other info is missing, but there is a large chance this may be the build sheet for a GSX.

    The "Production Order Body Final" sheet is dated 3/25 and it was a non-AC car with the G60x15 Tires.

    Now I almost never accept original build sheets from people, but do take them if people give me sheets that are not correct for their cars. This may be one of them.

    Either way I would really like to get this back to the owner.

    I could tell from where I found it that it was lost for around 5 years. Why it was in the basement with my parts is anyone's guess.

    I look forward to getting it home.

    PS. I do know who the other one goes too, so that one will be going home too.

    Just got off the phone with the owner. It is a White 70 GSX 4-speed car. He is getting me some info for my records and then I will send him the build sheet with the decode. I am very grateful to Mark Macoubrie for making this happen.

    The owner sent me some pics/info last night and everything checked out. I sent him some pics of the original build sheet so he could see what it looked like.

    I am going to give him my "decode" sheets along with his build sheet. He is very happy.

    I told him that after bouncing around for 48 years it deserves to go home.

    In the 90s one Sunday watching a lousy football game on tv, I turned it off and went and dropped the tank on my 70 GSX I had at the time. There it was my build sheet! 5 thousand dollar piece of paper!
    Told my wife that my car was now worth 20 grand! She laughed....Couple yrs later when divorcing I sold it for 19K. Guess I was wrong.....o_O
    Now it is worth 3 times that....
