JOHNNYLARK'S Stage-1 Buick 455 Skylark with "TA286-08H" Camshaft & 1.6 Rockers!!! 5-30-2013
This was a COOL DAY! I finally met "Johnnylark" of V8buick.com at the Home Depot Parking Lot MUSCLE CAR MEET. YOU MUST SEE THE "entrance" Johnnylark made with this Buick 455 Stage-1 Skylark's TA PERFORMANCE "286-08H" cam CHOPPING like crazy accompanied by his TA PERFORMANCE 1.6 ROCKERS! Johnny & his COOL son "John" made my day. In the video I recorded prior to this one ... I stated that there's NO Buick Muscle Cars attending ... and felt disappointed until I heard ... we ALL heard this Buick 455 Stage-1 chopping "Sinister-Like." This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal (currently at the Dyno Shop). The guy in the white wife-beater suggesting that Johnny "reverse it in," actually stated a few seconds before that ... "A car like THIS shouldn't be over there by itself." Classic! JOHNNY IS THE COOLEST!!!
1972 Buick Skylark
http://www.barnfineclassics.com/inventory/1972-buick-skylark Here's an amazing survivor Skylark! It has a great running original 350ci V8 and turbo 350 automatic transmission, power steering, power disc brakes, factory air conditioning, and upgraded dual Flowmaster Exhaust! Everything under the hood is stock! It does have a new battery and new points though! The interior is all original except the carpet has been replaced at some point, and the dashboard remains unmolested and in complete working order. All the lights, wipers, signals, and the blower are working great, it has nice glossy green paint, and very nice glass. It has the original 14 inch Buick wheels with 215/70/14 Firestone raised letter tires, and it is believed to have only 81k miles on the car! This is a fantastic car that is ready to be restored a little more!

1971 Buick Skylark 455 V8 GSX Spoiler and Striping
My friend Gabe, from FatGuyWithAKatana here on YT, asked to see this yellow and black beast. It's a 1971 Buick Skylark, powered by a 455 V8, topped with an Edelbrock 4 BBL carb. It has black vinyl interior, GSX stripes, and a GSX decklid spoiler. This is definitely a fun car for the money. It should be able to roast the tires at will. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
