Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by
Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History
Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into
the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar
Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom
fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the
bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of
another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their
invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men,
William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building
business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant
realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with
Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were
regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks
through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the
compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for
the largest company in the world."
Bruce Kent - Kenne Bell Big Block Buick Apollo 8.96- Wheelstand 10-17-2013
Bruce Kent - GS Nationals 2013, Bowling Green, Ky. 8.96 @ 152mph. This car
is awesome, leaves hard and goes straight. One of the best engineered cars
I have ever seen created by one of the nicest people you will ever meet.
I apologize for the poor down track video quality. I was so blown away by
the launch that by the time I could wheel around to catch the tail end of
the run Bruce was gone. Wow!
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.
Buick - 1985 Buick Grand National
Here's another great video from the History Channel's archive on the 1985
Buick Regal turbocharged Grand National.
Per the History Channel's exact video description:
attention-grabbing celebration of speed, the 1985 Grand National represents
Buick's return to muscle-car roots. Now, two teams of veteran mechanics try
to extract everything they can from the Grand National's made-for-speed
equipment (including turbo engines, fuel
injectors, and racing transmissions) to transform the car into a big, mean
The premise is simple: FULL THROTTLE selects two teams who are each given
the same model of classic car in a similar state of disrepair. They're
supplied with a garage, tools, and parts, and after 20 hours of repair
time, they battle it out in an old-fashioned drag-race on a certified
track. The winner keeps both cars. The loser keeps nothing.
They're fast, they're flashy, they reignited America's love of muscle
cars-and finally, the 1985 BUICK GRAND NATIONAL returns with a vengeance on
66 Pro Street Belvedere. Driving home on open headers! Clip 1
Jasper's just finished a complete rewire, I got insurance and 'failed' an
MOT and drove it home through Colwyn Bay, sorta legally ;-)
