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.

If you're in the market for some spectacular muscle that has tons of
character and an unbeatable price, we have the car for you!
Looking mean and sounding positively evil, this killer green Buick rolled
off GM's Flint, Michigan assembly line during the fifth week of November,
1970 and began a life of bare-knuckle pavement domination. Recently, the
car benefitted from a thorough frame-up restoration during which every
aspect of its body was massaged and aligned to showroom-fresh standards.
Once those sculpted panels were rock-solid and fully functional, a correct
coat of GM code 42 Willowmist Green was sealed under a thick clearcoat
shell and buffed to a vivid, glossy shine. And today, this Buick sits as a
rare and unique classic that draw stares, looks like a million bucks from
any angle, and is exactly the kind of no-nonsense muscle car you never get
tired of showing off!
The original 455 cubic inch Stage 1 V8 that's bolted between this car's
freshly detailed fenders is the kind of powerhouse that makes people either
put up or shut up. Turn the key and a familiar Quadrajet carburetor mixes
air from a black, dual-snorkel cleaner with fuel that's supplied by
carefully bent stainless, and shoves it into a correct cast iron intake.
Fire for that air/fuel mixture is provided by a GM points distributor which
shoots sparks around attractive chrome valve covers via high quality AC
Delco plug wires. Spent gases from that air/fuel mixture are jetted through
correct, cast iron manifolds that dump into a great sounding true dual Exhaust system. And cooling for that
combustion is provided by a factory radiator that circulates water around
an old school Frigidaire AC system via reproduction GM hoses and brand new
tower clamps. Oh, and did I mention the big red engine carries a correct
1231738 casting number behind a matching partial VIN stamp?
You'll recall that I used the word "unique" to describe this GS in my
opening comments. Well, it doesn't get much more unique, in a virtual sea
of automatic Buicks, than this car's modern Tremec TKO600 5-speed. That
smooth transmission sends power from a shielded 11 inch clutch to a 10 bolt
Posi-traction rear end that's equipped with easy-driving highway gears.
Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a familiar double A-arm
front and four link rear suspension that's equipped with a factory power
steering system, an upgraded steering box, heavy duty sway bars and quality
Edelbrock shocks. And power flows to the pavement via fresh chrome Rally
wheels which spin 215/70R15 Toyo Extensa A/S whitewalls around tri-shield
Pop this coupe's sculpted doors open and you'll find an awesome code 165
Ivory interior that, according to the car's current owner, is completely
original equipment. Comfy seats and fade-free door panels mix with a
stain-free headliner and clean carpet to provide big-time contrast to the
car's Willowmist Green exterior. In front of those seats, a straight and
original dash hangs crystal clear gauges, a correct AM/FM radio and fresh
wood trim above slick digital accessory gauges. And in front of the driver,
a familiar Buick Sport wheels spins satin-finished spokes around a
red-lined horn button.
In summary, this 1971 Buick is a phenomenal car that, from the ground up,
likely couldn't be duplicated for anywhere near our asking price. Call,

9 Second Buick GS Stage1
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.

'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
