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.

9 Second Buick GS Stage1
This was the car's 1st 9 sec. pass. Built around the GS Club Of America's
GS Street Eliminator Class rules. A real street car naturally aspirated
with a complete Exhaust system,full
interior etc. It is the first GS to run in the 9's using the original cast
iron Stage1 heads, under the GSE rules! It is a stock stroke 455 with an
.038 overbore to give it 464ci. It weighs 3500lbs and it idles smooth
enough to still run the power brakes! This pass was email@example.com mph and was
backed up with a 9.99@ 132.7 run.
buick GS 455 stage 1 first startup on engine stand
This is the first startup of my 455 stage 1 after rebuild! It crashed few
months ago :((.
Exhausts on this teststand are the
stock cast headers. carb is a beautyfull barry grant 850 demon on an
edelbrock 455 performance intake. cam is a SP 1165R, 112LC. Later, we
replaced it with a stock GS cam for smoother running. TA 1.65 red roller
rockers. heads flowed and ported. SP/FM hypereutectic pistons. Kenne Bell
valve covers. they look kinda cool, don't they?
This should push around 390HP with the stock cam and around 430HP with the
SP cam! runs like a baby :). listen!
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.
