Buick 455 that sat for 5 years and started right up and didnt smoke
This engine was rebuilt and has about 9000 miles on it. The tranny blew and then the car just sat in a barn for over 5 years. Surprisingly the engine started right up with a new tranny and battery. I do not know whats in the engine cam wise and such. I love this car.
455 GS Gran Sport Buick Project Car. Any donations apreciated!
This is my first HotRod. This car has lots of potential. I swapped the whole wire harness under the hood and inside the car. This is my first second attempt to start the car after it sat for approx 5 years. Im proud of myself that I swapped the harness and it fired right up. The old wire harness had a short in it somewhere that kept the engine from firing. This engine has a points distributor.

My 1987 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal "briefly" taken to 2,800-RPM to Meineke! 4-02-2011
... ON THE WAY TO MEINEKE (Thanks to THE-KING and his Rochester820!).
Mike (the owner of Meineke) is a very cool/straight-up dude. He treated me & my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal like Royalty.
This is the 1st time I actually BEAT ON my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal a bit with the 1973 Buick 455 V8 built by Mr. Dan Smith of D&S Performance in Camden, NJ.
The TH400 was built by Mr. Tyrone Taylor of PONTIAC-ALLEY secretly-located in Brooklyn, NY.
WITHOUT Exhaust, the Buick pulls HARD under 3000-rpm!!! It was very cool BLOWING THE (old slick Oldsmobile 307 burnout tires still on the Regal ... GOTTA get the MT Drag Radials) TIRES OFF. Engine was running a bit HOT.
Next video ... with 3" true duals!

BUICK BIG-BLOCK TORQUE RULES!!!
This is the first of a series of short movies taken at the Buick GS Nationals in Bowling Green, Kentucky in 2012. The GS Nationals is held each fall in Bowling Green, Kentucky and features a car show and drag racing, showcasing the heavy-hitters of Buick performance - the big block Buick, exemplified by the torquey 455 Stage1 and the turbocharged 3.8 V6, more commonly known as the famous Grand National engine.
The equipment being tried out is the new Canon Rebel EOS T4i and the GoPro Hero2. The audio is raw and unsweetened with the GoPro recording muffled through its housing and the Canon using the built-in mic. The Canon also uses the 18-55 mm kit lens.
Richard Johns's car is a 1970 Buick GSX Stage 1 automatic 3.64 Posi.
All original, Pure Stock car that has run a best of 12.44 @110.62 mph in 1/4 mile, of course on stock original equipment G60 --15 Goodyear Polyglas tires.
