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.
1995 Buick Skylark Custom V6 Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1995 Buick Skylark V6. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.

Derrek Bolings 324 Y break in
First run of Derrek's 324ci Y-Block Ford V8. 292 block bored to 3.875"
(283 chebbie pistons) 312 crank ground to fit with 2.1" rod throws. 6.25"
H-beam rods. 471 heads with 2.02" in and 1.6" stainless valves. This
engine will go into a '54 Ranch Wagon and eventually get a VS57 Supercharger.
Chevy, Olds, Pontiac and Buick V8 engines are not the same!
Evidently a segment of the automotive enthusiast population does not
believe that the four main GM divisions had their own versions of a V8. In
addition there may be people who simply never knew that fact.
In this video I show photos of a 350 cid engine from Buick, Oldsmobile,
Pontiac and Chevrolet and highlight the differences in each. Buick and
Pontiac V8 engines went out of production in 1980, Oldsmobile's in 1990 and
of course the Chevy versions lasted a lot longer because they were cheaper
to produce and easier to smog/mpg certify.
I challenge anyone to video themselves removing a Chevy SBC head and then
installing it on a Pontiac, Olds or Buick engine.
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.
Stock HP: 175hp (for 1972 Buick 350-4 8.5:1 compression)
Rear-wheel HP: 226hp @ 4326 RPM (should be a little higher with the Hyfire
and Mallory coil)
Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher)
Net HP: approx. 260hp
Compression: 9.5:1 (not sure, but definitely higher than stock because
without prem fuel I get spark knock with the correct fuel to air mixture)
Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip
Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with
a shift kit for fun :D)
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!

1969 Camaro 383 Stroker V8 Install Swap Video Part 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Here's the first of a 2 part story starring a red
1969 Camaro that was
far too slow for it's good looks. We had the opportunity to do a
performance makeover on this sweet looking car, and the star of the show is
a Fast Times Motorworks built 383. The new mill features a Scat 3.750
stroker steel crank, Scat I-beam 6 inch rods, and SRP pistons combining for
a 10.0:1 compression ratio for street drivability. The Comp Cams
hydraullic roller camshaft works its magic under a set of polished
Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads and Crane roller rocker arms. A
polished Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap intake and a polished Weiand
Action Plus water pump add sparkle and power, and a new Holley Street
Avenger Aluminum 670 CFM carb mixes the fuel. Royal Purple Break-In Oil.
Spark is handled by an MSD Digital E-Curve distributor, teaming up with the
MSD Blaster 2 coil and Superconductor plug wires. Hooker Competition
headers wearing a new Darksides black ceramic coating Exhaust the gasses, and we installed a new TCI
Saturday Night Special torque converter to raise the stall RPM so this
beast launches in its powerband. This combo spun the Fast Times Dyno to the tune of 440 ft. lbs.
at 4300 RPM and 446 horsepower at 6000 RPM.
This is part 1.
