    HI guys, Keith, don't get me wrong, I do appreciate your imput! You guys are the ones with the knowledge. But, I am not new to the collector car market either. I currently own a 69 442 W30 stick car (1 of 1097), a 72 Cutlass rag top V-code 455 stick car (1 of only 66 documented 455 rag top sicks for 72!), 1970 LS5 Corvette loaded, a 60 Corvette two top rag top with rare options, 73 Corvette L82 stick, a super rare 67 Plymouth Sport Fury w/ 383 Super Commando and rare 4 speed with console and tach, 68 Corvette 427 tripower rag top, 72 ProStreet Vette tubbed drag car, and 5 or 6 other collectables and I've been at this for more than half my life! I'm a dedicated car guy for sure! Ha-ha! More of an addiction! As for the other 32 Sunburst cars, I would feel pretty confident that they don't all have the rare options identical to mine. As a matter of fact, in looking over the registry, there are a ton more base engine cars out there than anything else, so that should also help my car's value? I'll be the first to tell you, I stumbled upon this one, and didn't know what a Centurion was! But, I'm really happy I decided to save this one from more years of neglect!

    Keith, the text regarding the blue car was : " This 1975 Buick Lesabre Custom Convertible has emerged from it's time capsule to be offered to the public for sale. This amazing automobile was recently purchased from an estate, and has been in climate controlled storage. The 24,700 original miles is correct, except for wear items, the car is totally original. The Blue paint is original and it is in remarkable condition! Top is white and shows no signs of wear, it works perfect. ... ..."

    W and guys.... I hope W gets all that and more for his ride! Then I can start to feel like I didn't over pay too much. It's time for the Centurion market to kick it up a notch! We've got special cars that cause a commotion whenever we take them out! They're rare. They should be priced accordingly. Need to set out mindset that way! Keith, I don't disagree with your point, b/c the proof is there. But, I am at least one of how many that would like to see the market give the Centurion it's due!

    W - you mentioned a Trans Am and others that you might sell? Tell me/us some more this one. Would love to see pics and know more about the car. I may have an interest in it. Hell, I've got an interest in all your rides. That Olds sounds like fun and so does that Centurion! (no, I am not buying it!)
    But that trans might be fun. Pls let me know. PM me if you'd like, or post it here. Want to see some pics if possible.

    Thanks!

    HI Gents!
    Back again after a busy few weeks trying to get things going on my property purchase. I have begun going through the W-Code 72 Centurion rag top, it now has all new brakes, lines, etc. I'm looking for a factory gas tank for it, the original has a wear mark from the strap and looks like it has seen better days, so I am looking for a real nice used or new, if they're out there? After talking to a few friends, I think I'll be doing the body before summer, we'll see. But for those of you looking for a cool drive-while-you-restore ride, I am selling my 72 Buick GS350. Pretty rare color combo to boot! Factory Burnished Copper Irridescent, with a covert vinyl top and saddle interior! The color is very cool, although someone gave it a GSX style paint scheme it currently has on it now, the original colors are real nice! Anywho, the gas tank is my next object desired, so if any of you guys know where they made be hiding, I would appreciate some info! kingjinx@msn.com
    Thanx, Paul

    Hi guys!
    I'm located in Fall River, MA. It's the southern coastline of the state.
    Dewbers, got your email, I'll put a little collection of what I am looking to sell, maybe we can chat about my 72 Buick GS350 too. Also, how can I add the little lines of what cars I have under my member name, like the ones I see for you guys?

    Had I known I would have stopped by and drooled all over your '72.
    I was on the Cape two weekends ago so I zipped through Fall River twice.
