I don't no why the web address didn't come thru Adam.
Smartin, how could you manage to have your site on the top of the list when typing "Buick Centurion" in Google for example ?
Instead, it is always spammed with wholesellers who only have AC condenser and radiator to offer !
A lot of it depends on average site traffic and number of clicks that the site collects on that particular search engine. If you go to www.msn.com and type in "Buick Centurion", I am first in line.
You can improve your standings in line by using "meta tags", which are embedded lines of code at the top of each page that are basically keywords the search engines look at. I did this with my Parts Directory when I started it, and my site traffic jumped big time. I also did this with the Centurion Registry not long after I started it, so all I can do is give it time until it "matures," I suppose.
Or I can sell out, and put google ads on my site...nah...
Adam, just checked out the registry, getting quite a good list of cars there now
I've got 6 more sitting on my desk waiting for submission!:beer
And I am going to be sending you another Fire Red 72 Convert soon that you don't have yet.
A nice one in Germany...although I do not like the wheels..nor the sound system.
And a same colour one in less good shape (Germany again)
I've seen the nicer car somewhere before....probably ebay?
In fact, looking at the auction again, despite the auction was posted on eBay Germany, the car is (was ?) in the USA !
Mabey I'll register my mom's old Centurion (unfortuenttly wrecked, but we still got the motor, the grill, the spoked hubcaps, and all the emblems) I'm hoping to make a sleeper out of the motor once my parents get another '72 Centurion 4dr. :Brow:
Nice avatar:grin: Looks familiar...
I'll be looking forward to any info you can give me!
Hey Adam, Fellow members just thought i would chime in. The centurion is back on the road after a 1 year abcense (and $1700) for heart surgery. Unfornately the original block could not be save.(I'll post those pics later :shock: ) Instead it has a 75 455 bored .30 over (460.1 cid) with a little warmer Comp cam. But what I wanted to say is that I want to send you pics of the car,build sheet and tell you of some additions and corrections on the option list. Should I email them through the registry site or post them here on the board?
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks - it's good to see you back! I had started to wonder where you went. I had been looking for any archived pictures you had, but couldn't find them.
What does all this mean?
I just picked up a nice 73 2 door hardtop Centurion with the H code 455 in it, will have to get the necessary info together and register it :TU: Thanks
72 model year
4 - Buick
66 - Centurion
47 - 2 Door Hardtop (formal coupe)
Y - Wilmington, DE Plant
01393 - Fisher Body number
TR 464 - Dark Green vinyl interior with notchback front seat
A65 - Power Seat, I believe
69 - Nutmeg Poly Paint
F - Tan vinyl top
11B - Built 2nd week of November 1971
Thanks, Smartin... Of course the int is not Dk green vinyl. As far as I know, Centurion Formal Coups were only avail with Sandlewood int. Is Nutmeg a dk brown? And it has no power seat, but I have the works from an Olds for it.
Noisy, you are correct...464 is for a Sandlewood interior, sometimes called Light Covert, not a Dark Green. Sorry Adam, you missed this one! ou: :laugh:
See: http://autocolorlibrary.com/cgi-bin/search/searchpic.pl?1972-buick-pg02.jpg for the chart.
Thanks, brad... I have a lot of rust under the vinyl top, so it has to come off. I'd like to paint the whole car one color the same color as the int.
