    72 Skylark badly damaged. Next steps?

    Well that didn't last long...
    I purchased a 1972 Buick Skylark 4 door sedan in November. The car spun out on the wet roads today in Philadelphia.
    Badly damaged drivers side fender, drivers door, and rear quarter panel.
    I want to get it fixed but not sure where to start.
    All repair costs are out of pocket.
    So, I'm looking for a body shop in the Philly area that'll handle the task.

    Also, if anyone knows of the a junk yard around Philly to search for a fender or door I'm not opposed to replacing those parts myself.

    Thanks for any help.

    you boys use road salt. i have a hard time believing there would be much worthwhile left from 1972 sitting out in a junk yard.

    AACA forums have a pretty thriving parts scene, although they tend to go a bit older than us.

    TAPerformance.com may have some parts.

    course, i say the above and then recommend a place in Delaware

    Nick Servo at Ivyland Collision has completed many repairs on Buicks and is well known in the Buick Community. Good Guy.
