    I think you should do what you like! It doesn't take a set of GS badges to make a honkin' GREAT Buick

    It won't add anything to the value. The key question is - will you like it better?

    if anything i would like to change the seats from being a bench seat into two bucket seats. the front seat is all messed up anyways. the car is already a head turner the way it is right now because i havent seen anyone around with a skylark. i had to bring it all the way from indiana its in pretty bad shape right now but it runs and drives good.

    For what it's worth, I have a 4-door 1969 Special (same body as Skylark) and decided that instead of rebuilding my bench seat again, that I would get a seat out of a junkyard - there was a 1995 Buick Roadmaster Presidential in my local yard with a nice comfy leather seat. I have NO regrets about doing that, I put on over 10,000 miles this summer in my nice big comfy seat. I had to drill some new holes, and putz with the seat belts a bit, but I LOVE the result.

    idk if i could use a newer seat from a car i really like the way an old car feels when you sit in it i think that i was to put newer seats in it they would have to be racing seats
