SAVING THE STICK
In regards to your editorial in the June 2018 issue [“Save the Stick”] I am the original owner of an Apollo White, Stage 1, fourspeed, 1970 GSX. I purchased this car at Liberty Buick in Wilmington, Delaware, in the spring of 1971 (I was 21 at that time). It was a leftover from the previous year. The engine and Posi rear are both numbers-matching, the Muncie M21 has been replaced. Both of my children and my granddaughter learned how to row a four-speed in this car.
The GSX has been driven from my home in Delaware to Memphis on my honeymoon in 1971; to the 1980 Car Craft Street Machine Nationals in Indianapolis; to the 1983 Car Craft Syracuse Street Machine Nationals in New York; on numerous trips to Island Dragway and Englishtown, both in New Jersey; to the 2000 GS Nationals in Bowling Green, Kentucky; to the GSX in reunion Columbus, Ohio, in 2009; to the York Muscle Car Reunion on two occasions; and on countless trips to Cecil County, Maryland, for the annual Buick meet. Although not a daily driver, this vehicle has taken me wherever I decided to go for the past 47 fun-filled years.
