New Indiana GN owner here

Hello to all!
This is my first ever Grand National or any Buick vehicle for that matter.
Since I'm new to these cars, I'm sure I will have plenty of questions for you all :)
Here are some pics of my new lady.

Yes, I just picked the car up on Valentine's day from a guy in Illinois.
It was only a 2 hour drive for me.
I live in Avon Indiana.

You need to remove the door panel and adjust the window. Kirban sells a book for this. Nice looking ride.
This helps! Because I paid the classic car shop $500 to install new T-Top seals ( the shop was selling the grand national on co-signment for a local fellow), and didn't know why I still had gaps in the corners of the windows and the edges.
The t-top seal kit was soffseal brand that the previous owner had already purchased, I went ahead and paid to have them installed because I didn't want to screw it up lol. I was certain it came with the pillar seals as well.

Welcome to the site. I'd guess that sled is very low mileage. Congrats of finding such a clean car.
Let us know if you have any questions. Members here have the right to post up pictures of their cars.
However, we'll allow you to abuse the privilege.:D

Congrats and happy spooling. :)

Oh yea. I'm sure that you paid a good deal for a car that nice.
The good news: Mark my words. It will be worth much more next year. ;)

Once again. Congrats...

The website of the place I purchased this car at still has it listed on their website lol.
Though I can assure you I am the owner :)
Here I am on the pick up day with my wife posing before I drove her off the lot.

Dang, I didn't know IGA sold cool stuff like that. Forget Kroger I am starting to shop at the local IGA. In all seriousness that is a very nice looking car you have.

When a guy in his mid 40's stands next to a beautiful 30 year old car and a pretty girl in her mid 20's claims they're both his he's full of whooie, right?
I'm just busting your chops, man. Beautiful GN! Welcome.
