Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.

http://www.1ownercarguy.com Cruising around town in a Beautiful 1972 Buick
Centurion Convertible. This car looks good with the top up or down. It has
been well taken care of over the years and it drives like a dream and have
the Big Block 455 that makes it sound mean. I have been driving this car a
little bit the last few days and it is a lot of fun to cruise around town
it. Top up or down it doen't matter this car is getting looks where ever it
goes. You don't see a lot of them around anymore. It will need a few things
here and there, but great to drive around while you are fixing it.

Now this is a FULL sized car! Plenty of room for a cruise! Hard to
believe that all this luxury was in the lowest priced series Buick!
Competition within GM was pretty great...the pitch could easily be made
that for the cost of a Pontiac, you could move up to a Buick...which made
the folks at Buick happy...and at Pontiac, sad!
