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.
Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.

1950 Chevrolet: Morrison Farm Truck - /BIG MUSCLE
The 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Series pickup is the quintessential American farm
truck. However, after Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises found it
languishing in someone's front yard, this little farm truck went from
all-slo, to all-go. The original chassis was removed in favor of a new GT
Sport bolt-on unit, as was the original Chevy straight-six engine. In its
place sits a new GM Performance Parts crate motor with EFI injection that's
coupled to a Hughes Performance 4L60E automatic transmission. With the
original paint and interior still intact, this old truck has been given a
new lease on life while still retaining all the heritage that made it great
over 60 years ago.
1959 Chevrolet Bel Air vs. 2009 Chevrolet Malibu IIHS crash test
IIHS 50th anniversary demonstration test • September 9, 2009
In the 50 years since US insurers organized the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety, car crashworthiness has improved. Demonstrating this was a
crash test conducted between a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevrolet
Malibu. In a real-world collision similar to this test, occupants of the
new model would fare much better than in the vintage Chevy.
"It was night and day, the difference in occupant protection," says
Institute president Adrian Lund. "What this test shows is that automakers
don't build cars like they used to. They build them better."
The crash test was conducted at an event to celebrate the contributions of
auto insurers to highway safety progress over 50 years. Beginning with the
Institute's 1959 founding, insurers have maintained the resolve,
articulated in the 1950s, to "conduct, sponsor, and encourage programs
designed to aid in the conservation and preservation of life and property
from the hazards of highway accidents."
