Dear Ragtopspecial and 65GS.com welcome wagon

By all means! Welcome to 65GS.com!!

Local car, Jax, Fl, 98% rust free. Original save for new seat covers, carpet, 30 year old lacquer paint job, (originally black), and GNX style wheels.  More later.


Nice car!  Definitely in great shape for its age.  Although I must confess in my ignorance that I am a bit bewildered by the variety of simulated vent ports to be found on the 1965 Buick A-bodies.  Here is the style of vent ports on my 1965 Buick Special wagon:



The dark red ports are especially nice looking on a Seafoam green car (in my opinion.)  I'm just amazed at all the alternatives we are finding!

Once more welcome!

Cheers, Edouard  :occasion14:

Welcome to the group Ragtop.  There are several Specials here mixed in with the Skylarks and GS's.  When you have time tell us more about your vert.
I lived in Jaxs for four years, great cruising weather especially in a convertible.

Dear Ragtopspecial and mid-60s Buick owners who attempt to cope with new fangled technology,

I have a lot more pictures, just can't get them small enough to post.

So how to you take and deal with your pictures?  Do you have a PC, Mac, or one of those phones or tablet thingies?   Depending on what you have, we might be able to give you some pointers!

Cheers, Edouard
