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.

The Cars of Queens: Part II - /BIG MUSCLE
Big Muscle continues its New York adventure with its second installment on
the cars of Queens, NY. This week we're taking a look at a stunning 1967
Buick GS 400 and a highly modified 1969 Dodge Charger. These are not garage
queens, but two bad-ass muscle cars that see duty on the open road, local
road and auto-x courses and of course the occasional trip to the drag

Here at RK Motors, we've been rolling out some world class Buick GSXs
lately. Our latest addition to the arsenal is a frame-off restored Saturn
Yellow 1970 GSX Stage 1 which has won so many awards recently that you
might need an extra trailer to haul them around.
Nothing was left untouched as this GSX was given a professional, frame-off
rotisserie restoration. Every weld and gap is exceptional, giving this bold
and luxurious Buick the ability to win major points from any judge in any
organization. Step back and admire the consistency of the yellow paint
across every panel. Close the door to hear the confident thud that gave
Buick a reputation for rock solid cars. Take a moment to follow the GSX
side stripe as it flows to the back of the car and lines up perfectly with
the centered GSX spoiler decal.
The first thing a judge will notice when he walks up to this car is a sense
of craftsmanship in the details. The pristine red and white GSX decals and
red pin stripping combine with the Saturn Yellow and black paint to really
set the car off. New chrome bumpers, door handles and window trim add the
substance and class expected from a Buick. The factory hood mounted
tachometer completes the look and acts as a nice conversation piece.
Original equipment red, white and blue Buick tri-shield center caps adorn
Buick GSX specific chrome trimmed 15 inch Rallye wheels. Completing the
look are reproduction Super Wide Oval tires just like the tires the car
left the factory with.
Under the hood of this GSX resides a concours restored correct date coded
455 with the Stage 1 performance option. When up-fitted from the factory
with the Stage 1 performance package, the 455 benefitted from a hotter cam,
bigger valves, low restriction Exhaust
and revised jets in the Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor. Buick claimed that
the car made 360 horsepower, but testing
showed that it actually produced around 425hp.
This GSX has no difficulty putting the power to the ground as it comes
equipped with the optional Rallye Ride Control Package. Rallye Ride Control
features a rear stabilizer bar, firmer front and rear shocks, rear firm
ride springs and rear lower control arm assemblies. Factory power assisted
front disc and rear drum brakes and variable ratio power steering keep
everything under control. Backing that 455 is a numbers matching, concours
restored GM TH400 3 Speed automatic. That hydramatic transmission sends
power to the rear wheels through a numbers matching Posi-Traction rear end
with 3.42 gears and a Buick high performance axle.
On the inside high quality vinyl seats and door panels are highlighted by
perfect red GS emblems and chrome trim. Optional custom front and rear
seatbelts with custom front shoulder belts and a full length console add to
the already impressive design. A factory optioned Rallye steering wheel
serves as the focal point and looks right at home in front of the upgraded
GSX dash. Featured in that dash is a factory option chrome trimmed gauge
and clock package and the correct Sonomatic AM radio.
The sell includes a CD of pictures documenting the frame-off concours
rotisserie restoration of the car at Then and Now Automotive. It also
includes documentation from the GSX Historic Society showing this car to be
GSX number 543 of 678 produced for 1970 and one of only 213 cars to include
the TH400 transmission. Included documentation from the Sloan Registry
features percentages of vehicles registered by state and year as well as
options sheet break downs, factory correspondence and marketing material.
Awards include a 2010 concours gold plaque from the GS Nationals, a 2010
concours gold plaque from the Buick Performance Group Nationals and a Best
of Show plaque from South East Rods and Customs.
There are nice cars and there are rare and significant cars which define an
era. The GSX is one of those cars and one of the most significant Buicks
ever produced. Fully documented and a national show winner; this GSX is the
right example for any serious Buick collector. Call, click or visit

1970 Buick GS 455 Burnout and Pass
Buick built a number of great sleepers in the '60s and '70s, since they
were known for style and comfort rather than all out performance. Buick's
big block, the 455 powered a number of high performance muscle cars,
including this all black 1970 Buick Gran Sport. This car is a real sleeper
with its all black paint and base model wheels, but it runs low 12's in the
quarter. This video was taken at the 2012 Buick GS Nationals in Bowling
