1969 Buick Skylark convertible frame/suspension walk around
This is my first video upload on Youtube...so take it easy on me..:)
This is the 69 Buick Skylark convertible I am working on. I have the frame
and front suspension done so I thought I'd make a video of it. More videos
to come on the rest of the car...including the big block 455 build.

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)

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.
9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140
We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at
the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also
the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9's at the time.Thanks to
Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been
taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to
bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our
shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new
powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the
engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and
get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138
hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the
5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing
adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle
the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool
but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to
straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We're sure it'll
go into the 9.40's yet and maybe even 30's after everything is worked out.
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.
1980 Buick Skylark Dealer Demo
This is form a 1979 promotional LaserDisc that I found it is for 1980 model
At the beginning of this disc you will hear some audio tones, these where
used to program the PR-7800 LaserDisc player, and you will also see single
frames of what is on the entire disc as well as still pictures of each
model of Buick available that year
This WAS the first interactive video experience, the on board CPU in the
PR-7800 allowed you to program the viewing and interact with the disc using
the remote control. The PR-7800 was intorduced 3 years before the IBM PC-XT
In 1978 GM contracted with Pioneer and MCA/DiscoVision to put the Pioneer
PR-7800 LaserDisc player into its dealerships, the discs where to be used
for demonstrations as in this disc or for training purposes.
Now in the early days of laserDisc manufacture there was a very high
failure rate, sometimes as high as 85% during the mastering/pressing
process, so that left a lot of sides of discs that where unusable. Well
these where used to fill the blank side of a disc, the "dead" side was then
coated with a special plastic that was clear to the human eye, but it would
not reflect the laser beam, thus the side would not play. Well the coating
can be removed with rubbing alcohol, which is what I did.
These reject discs will ONLY play on the older style of laserDisc player
that uses a laser tube

1965 Buick Skylark Gran Sport hardtop
Beautiful car, with a Wildcat engine...401 c.i. behemoth. Is it any wonder
these cars could GO! Buick was certainly not going to be ignored within
General Motors..and could be very competitive with Chevelle, GTO and
Cutlass ! The ingredients were the same...big engine, relatively small,
1969 Buick Skylark 400 V8 Ram Air GS Trim
I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1969 Buick Skylark. I
believe this is a Skylark that has had the ram air hood and GS Trim added,
but I'm not sure. Either way, it's a great looking car. The paint is
slick, the black vinyl interior looks like new, and it's riding on a nice
set of aftermarket rims. It also features factory A/C that still blows
cold. It's definitely a nice car for the money. I hope you find it
interesting, thanks for watching!
