I pulled the front clip off the car, and set the 2-barrel 350 / TH 350 combo on a wire milk crate that followed me home from the grocery store.

The car had over 2 inches of Bondo under the primer… lesson learned. I bought a set of quarter skins from J.C. Whitney, cut the rusty ones off the Buick, and got stuck ‘cause I hadn’t a clue what I was doing.

Our hero with the ‘72. I don’t know if I was working on the car or watching the 13” black and white TV on the roof of the car at this point. Note the Coleman lantern overhead… still have that one.

My parents’ garage was soon jammed with rusty Buick bits. I had tremendous organization skills back then.
