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!!!
1970 Buick GS 455 Burnout and Pass
Buick built a number of great sleepers in the '60s and '70s, since they were known for style and comfort rather than all out performance. Buick's big block, the 455 powered a number of high performance muscle cars, including this all black 1970 Buick Gran Sport. This car is a real sleeper with its all black paint and base model wheels, but it runs low 12's in the quarter. This video was taken at the 2012 Buick GS Nationals in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
