Have you ever seen a GS455 near WNC?

Have any of Y'all seen a,

1970 Buick GS455 Stage 1

It takes its styling from a 1970 Chevelle, but just a little different things like the Cold Ram Air in the middle of the hood, the grill is angled, and a eye catching paint job. It only came in Yellow and White with black strapes
looks like the one in the TOP LEFT picture

Production:
GS 2D Hardtop: 9,948
GS455 2D Hardtop: 8,732
GS455 Convertible: 1,416

Engines:
GS350: 350 V8 315hp @ 4600rpm, 410lb @ 3200rpm
GS455: 455 V8 350hp @ 4600rpm, 510lb @ 2800rpm
Gs455 Stage 1: 455 V8 360hp @ 4600rpm, 510lb@2800rpm

Performance:
GS455 Stage 1 - 455/360: 0-60 6.5 Sec, 1/4 13.8 Sec @101 mph

If you have any information on this car, reply

A 1970 Buick Skylark? Does that kind of look like a 70 Chevelle, that kind of looks like a 70 Lemans, that kind of looks like a 70 Olds Cutlass?

You are right
the outer skin is the same
different: paint, hood, appearance, and whats under the hood
but a 1970 Skylark never had a 455 or a big block
like the 1970 GS455
1970 Skylarks had only a 350 2BBL 260hp or 350 4BBL 285 hp
1970 GS455 had 360hp and 510lbs
The 1970 Buick GS455 could stomp out the 1970 Skylark

Look dude asking the people on this board if they've ever seen a 70 GS455 is like asking if we've ever seen a blue sky.
