Making a change so to make more original in concours show, car will have New highway stars stock replacement exhaust system installed. Atr exhaust will be an option to the buyer.

Thumper, not sure if you have already purchased the Highway Stars exhaust but you might wat to check out Gardner Exhaust's stock replacement system - it is more accurate then the Highway Star's system with the exception of the muffler. The Gardner Exhaust system has the actual same as factory crimped bends on the front mid Y-pipe, over the axles pipes and tailpipes and they are the proper OD. The Highway Stars system is all mandrel bent which yes it looks pretty - but - is not factory correct if that's the look you are going after and is a larger dimeter pipe. Gardner Exhaust spends a incredible amount time doing all the crimping manually and by hand - it's a very labor intensive job but it is correct. The Gardner Exhaust transverse muffler does not have the GM or the 2nd gen part # stamped in the casing but it does have the FIXTURE CHECKED sprayed on the muffler. I would suggest you check them out as well as a option before you pull the trigger on the Highway Stars system.

BTW - you have a beautiful car and I love it with the crank windows and the ATR system on it!

Buyer beware! This car is better than the pics, buy with confidence. Bill and Missy are just real good Buick people and this car shows it. I have seen this car a few times and I am very fussy, you wont find any better and what Bill says is 100% the truth and he is very knowledgeable. Who ever buys this car gets years of experience and I know Bill would help you out down the road with advice or concerns. Good luck to both sides.

I agree 100% with SS/GN. I have seen this car in person and met Bill and can say this would be a great car for someone wanting an 86GN with low miles and well taken car of. Bill is a solid guy as well. Good luck !
