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.
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.

PINKS All Out Las Vegas BSR Interview
Brotherhood Of Street Racers Interview on PINKS All Out Las Vegas
If we do nothing than nothing happens. Everyone needs to get involved.
This is an e-mail from S. Pullin the Executive Producer of PINKS to the
mayor of Los Angeles:
Oct 21 2007
Recently we shot an episode of our hit show PINKS ALL OUT on SPEED Channel,
in Las Vegas. This particular episode had a very positive outcome for the
Los Angeles based Brotherhood of Street Racers. The theme of the show
centers around the fact that there are no tracks in Los Angeles for racers
and they either race on the street or must travel long distance to a track.
In this case several racers came to our show in Las Vegas to compete for
the $10,000 prize. In a stroke of pure serendipity, two of them made it
into the final out of 350 racers and Kenny Long a local racer won. Several
LA Based racers were interviewed and I have also put them into the show.
The message that people should race on the track and not the streets is
throughout the show from racers, Rich Christensen the host and others.
About eight references. As the show ends, the two Brotherhood members make
a passionate plea to get the Brotherhood Raceway track re-opened. All of
this makes for a very compelling and I think entertaining show that will be
viewed by millions of people.
This ALL OUT show will air on national television on Thanksgiving evening
in Prime Time after a 20 hour PINKS marathon on Speed Channel. We did this
last year on the same day for the ALL OUT premiere which received the
highest ratings in the history of the network for any one hour show. This
time we anticipate the audience could be larger, reaching over 3 million
people in one airing. It will then go into regular rotation like our other
shows which typically run about 100 times each per year and are distributed
widely all over South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Jet Blue and
military networks around the world. We have now made 10 ALL OUT's which
were shot in front of very large audiences, up to 33,000 in Detroit making
us the second largest event in Drag racing. We are contracted to make 10
new shows next year around the country. Season Five of PINKS begins airing
I have no power to re-open the Brotherhood Raceway or any other track
around Los Angeles, I can only make television that draws attention to the
situation in this city and many others around the country. I have
personally been a supporter of the Brotherhood's efforts for several years.
It is a shameful situation that the city that created drag racing has
turned its back on this group of racers. There is obviously a serious lack
of political will and leadership in this city that I find particularly
disturbing. Tell me what else I can do to help this cause. Too many
innocent people are dying on our streets. I would like to personally
present a copy of this show to the Mayor of Los Angeles and encourage him
to watch the show, see what we are doing around the country with our show
that is having a tremendous impact to take racing off the streets and onto
the track. It is my understanding that he has the power to re-open the
Terminal Island track. If any of you could be instrumental in making this
meeting happen I would be very grateful.
Hopefully this will encourage the city leaders to take serious steps to
re-open Brotherhood Raceway.

When GM lifted their ban of engines larger than 400 cubic inches in
intermediate cars, the Buick camp responded with a legendary piece of
muscle car history. The GS was the go-to for anyone who put equal emphasis
on pure comfort and brute power. This Sloan-documented 1970 GS 455 is the
beneficiary of an extensive frame-off restoration which has already claimed
some significant awards. Accolades include a Concours Gold First Senior
award at the 2012 Buick Club of America Nationals.
While Buick's GSX made its presence loud and clear with two strong color
options, the GS455 went about things in a slightly more sophisticated way.
This GS 455 wears a refreshing mix of fresh Burgundy Mist and Glacier White
paint for a refined appearance. Only the functional hood scoops hint at the
cars performance capabilities. All brightwork has been polished or
replaced, including the showroom fresh bumpers which were rechromed by
Inside the car, Buick design remains at the forefront. An all new Pearl
White interior from Legendary Auto Interiors offers new carpet, bucket
seats, door panels, and a taut new headliner. Presentation is great thanks
to details like freshly rechromed center console trim and a new steering
wheel. Upgrades include a full Custom Autosound stereo system with direct
The stock Buick 455 was a strong engine, offering a factory rated 360 horsepower and 510
lb. /ft. of torque but this GS takes things to the next level. Lift the
hood and a deceptively stock-appearing bay hosts a fully rebuilt 470ci
Buick motor full of high-quality parts. Built by Tri-Shield Performance,
the block hosts pieces like Diamond forged pistons, Eagle H-beam rods, and
a TA cam. At the top, a ported stock intake works alongside ported and
polished aluminum SE Stage 1 heads to help make a stout 507 horsepower.
Behind that powerhouse, TH400 automatic transmission rebuilt by TSP spins
power back to a 12-bolt rear with versatile 3.31 gears. At either side,
headers connect to a 3-inch dual Exhaust system complete with an X-pipe and
Flowmaster 50 series mufflers. To the rear, a new Quantum fuel tank and
RobbMc fuel pump keep the big Buick properly fed.
During restoration, the frame was sand blasted and painted with an
industrial urethane before being joined by all new suspension components.
Power front disc brakes and rear drums provide plenty of stopping power
while a fully rebuilt power steering system ensures confidence through the
corners. The chassis meets the road through new Wheel Vintiques Buick Rally
wheels wrapped in Goodyear Polylgas tires.
Offering a near-perfect blend of show and go, this award-winning 1970 GS
455 is a great reminder of Buick's performance heritage and a resounding
"Yes" to the old slogan, "Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick?"
