    I currently have 3 drop tops. My 70 GS455 , a 70 sky custom and a 71GS350. (or 4 if you count the 72 suncoupe!:laugh:) Only the 70GS is on the road, but the suncoupe is getting real close to being done. the 70 customs a basket case :shock: and the 71 GS is a future project

    Hey I get to add one to the drop top list! It feels good to be a convertible owner, again.

    66electrafied Just tossing in my nickel's worth

    I guess I have to put my 2 up here; 1966 Buick Electra 225, and 1967 Buick Wildcat Custom.
    1967_buick_wildcat_convertible-1484652.jpg Picture 016.jpg

    Love 'em both; and they've got an interesting story too. I used the blue one on a trade to get the red one, and then 10 years later (and 3 different owners later) the blue one was traded back to me, all restored and fixed up. It cost me a 46 Buick. It was as if I loaned the car out for 10 years to get fixed!
    And to top it all off, I rescued the blue one from a wrecker by trading a 64 Olds for it over 25 years ago; - so in essence, the car hasn't cost me a dime as no cash was ever given out to get it.
