In 2008, when plans were being made for a GSX reunion in Ohio, the rumor got out of a four-speed GSX for sale in Louisiana.
“The story was that it was a Saturn Yellow Stage 1 four-speed car with A/C,” Tim recalls. “The car had been sitting for years, and the owner had hoped to restore it. A woman had owned it before him in the 1980s. She painted it blue, had an automatic transmission put in with a column shift, and a bench seat.”
On New Year’s Day 2009, Tim and his brother Rich went to Louisiana to see the car. “What we found was a beat-up old Buick,” he recalls. “The car had the usual rust, the trunk was full of junk, and it had dents and primer spots all over. I think my brother said it best: ‘If this was a Skylark, it would be worth 500 bucks.’”
It didn’t look like a GSX, which may be why it hadn’t been snapped up before. But Tim got verification from the GSX Historical Society that the car was indeed a Stage 1 four-speed “with A/C, tilt wheel, and tinted glass.”
