9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140
We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at
the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also
the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9's at the time.Thanks to
Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been
taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to
bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our
shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new
powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the
engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and
get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138
hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the
5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing
adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle
the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool
but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to
straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We're sure it'll
go into the 9.40's yet and maybe even 30's after everything is worked out.

132215 / 1970 Buick GSX

This matching-numbers 1970 GSX represents the very pinnacle of GM's muscle
car development, and if you're serious about performance, this is a car
that you should examine very closely.
This car carries 100% of its original sheet metal and has been given an
extensive restoration to concours levels. There was no way to avoid the
blacked out hood and stripes along the side of your GSX, and why the heck
would you want to do that? It looks incredibly aggressive, yet tasteful at
the same time, exactly what you would expect from Buick's gentleman's
express. Panel gaps are excellent throughout the car, and there's something
about a Buick that just feels more substantial than the Chevy and Pontiac
cousins—maybe thicker weather stripping or more sound deadener or
something. Whatever the cause, this car seals up tight and is rattle-free,
just like a new car would be. The finish is brilliant, using modern paints
to achieve a depth and gloss that makes this car impossible to ignore at a
show or on the street.
The matching-numbers 455 in this GSX has been fully rebuilt to Stage 1
specs. That means bigger valves, a more aggressive camshaft, stronger valve
springs, and revised jetting in the carburetor. Invisible upgrades include
port-matched heads, intake, and Exhaust manifolds, making this one sweet-running
big block. Cosmetically, the engine bay is ready for show, with the only
variation from pure stock being a set of chrome OEM valve covers, although
a set of red painted covers is included with the car for 100% authenticity.
Decals, hoses, clamps, wiring, and other piece, including the ram air
system, have been exactly replicated for show purposes. Also note that this
Buick has A/C, which is fully restored and fully functional.
The engine is backed by the original, numbers-matching TH400 3-speed
automatic, perhaps the most indestructible automatic transmission ever
created. Out back, Buick wisely chose to put 3.42s in their top
performer—too much more gear and all you're going to do is make expensive
rubber smoke. The entire chassis has been restored, with highly accurate
details throughout. From the satin black floors to the detailed suspension,
which appears to be powder-coated in finishes that approximate the original
raw steel, this car will show well at any level. Flowmaster mufflers are
the lone deviation from stock, but they sound amazing and perhaps even make
some extra power, so who is complaining? Wheels are the best looking
factory wheels ever made, with Goodyear Polyglas GT tires for an absolutely
authentic look and feel.
The black bucket seat interior is the perfect mix of performance and
luxury, done as only Buick could have done it. The seats are full of fresh
foam and new seat covers, and the carpet and headliner are new. Door panels
are correct with unique GS badging, and the dashboard is full of restored
gauges. The console houses the coolest automatic shifter ever invented, and
the woodgrain adds an upscale touch. As I said, the A/C blows cold, the
original radio works properly, and all the details that make the GSX
unique, like the padded steering wheel, have been restored.
Look at the prices on LS6 Chevelles and GTOs, then look at the price on
this gorgeous Buick. Add in a matching-numbers driveline, factory A/C, and
a spectacular restoration, and this particular GSX is the one to own. Drive
it, enjoy it, take it to the Buick Nationals and have a ball, that's what
this car is all about. Call now before the market catches on and discovers
what awesome cars these really are.
1970 Buick GSX "The Hemi Killer"
Here is the Holy Grail of the GM/Buick Musclecars and is better known as
the Hemi killer. Truly one of the fastest, and rarest, musclecars of all
time. Meet the beautiful 1970 Buick GSX Stage I. Largest torque rating of
all 1970 cars at 510 lb/ft and a grossly underrated horsepower of 360. These
cars were scary fast right off the showroom floor and few cars of the era
came close to them at the strip. This desirable Saturn Yellow example has
been restored from the ground up and is in period-correct, pristine
condition. It has been restored according to factory specs and is
currently optioned just like it was in 1970. Full numbers-matching
drivetrain. This car also has won the Buick Nationals on several occasions
and has done so as recently as 2007. It is unbelievably documented. We're
talking Protecto-Plate, Original Framed Sales Invoice, build sheet, and a
broadcast sheet that was found under the carpet. Also comes with all the
original dealer paperwork and a lot of ownership history. A true
southerner, it was sold new in Atlanta, GA on May 12, 1970. The buyer
traded in a 1969 Buick Riviera and drove out in this musclecar legend.
Only around 400 GSX Stage I's were ever produced. Own a piece of American
history. They don't build them like this anymore! For more details call

Barn Find: Classic Porsche 912 Restoration -- /DRIVE CLEAN
Go to www.ammonyc.com to get the free Barn Find Assessment Checklist
Today's story is about a true barn find. The car in question is a 1966
Porsche 912, which was last registered 23 years ago. We discovered the car
thanks to our friend Roger Garbow, from Full Throttle Marketing. He had
received a call about the car's discovery and immediately forwarded the
info to us, here at Drive Clean. Address in hand, we turned our crews
around and headed-off to a northern region of Connecticut where we
unearthed and restored this classic car. Watch as we assess our find,
remove years of accumulated filth and grime, and initiate the paint
correction phase on this 912's "Irish Green" shell.
