buick apollo gsx burnout
the story is . i found this in a old mans barn and it was sitting in there for about 12 years until i found it. at first i didnt know what it was , after a few days of research i found out there were only 1000 or so buick apollos with this gsx package , it came with a buick 350 but when the man got it he put a 455 big block in it and did some work to the engine it puts out about 515 torque and stock horsepower is 350 , but it has high performance cam aluminum intake , 600 holly four barrel carb , shift kit , and other stuff so maybe close to 400hp . this video was taken before it was tuned on lol still with alittle old gas and old plugs and points

1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1, with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two, loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011 issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
