My 1973 Buick Apollo making a time trial pass at Pamona, CA for Super Chevy 2002
This is the only pass that I ever made down Pamona. We drove the car 90
miles in Friday morning LA traffic to get there. I made this one time trial
pass and got a call that the wife was in the hospital getting ready to
deliver our daughter, so my buddies raced it for me the rest of the
weekend. They did good, made it into 3rd or 4th round, not bad at all for
their first time ever running. At the time the car was running 12.70's @
109 down at Carlsbad Raceway which was my home track. Still have the car
just doesn't see much action and when it does it's at Mid Michigan
Motorplex, and now my daughter is 9 years old now.

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!
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
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.

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.
1972 Buick Skylark
1972 Buick Skylark with a Hi-Compression Buick 350-4
I've had this car since October 8th 2010, I'm a senior in High School and
it is my first car, my dad payed for half of it and I payed for the other
half. I pay for the performance goodies that go into it and the occasional
parts that break too. I love driving this old monster even though premium
gas prices are outrageous but the rumble and roar of that massive V8 are
well worth it. I take pride in this car and my dad and I do most of the
work on it ourselves, it's somewhat of a father-son project. We've done
nothing but make this car a heck of a lot better than it was when we got
it. In the great words of GS Club of America, going fast with class, that's
what these Buicks do.

Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher)
Net HP: approx. 260hp

Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip
Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with
a shift kit for fun :D)
