My 72 Skylark 350 sport coupe, I've had it about 10 or 11 years and I bought it from the original owners family after he had passed away. It used to be a grandfathers car now it's just an old guys toy. Soon after I bought it I installed a warmed up 350 and it ran real good. One day I wanted more so I built a .030 over 455 and that's when the trouble started. The original owners name Was Charley Daniels(no not that one)May he rest in peace because lord knows, When ever I start this thing up nobody rests in peace. Mwuh hah ha hah ha ha
1972 Buick Skylark, TA 288-92H cam.
This is the TA 288-92H cam. Bought cam and lifters used from a reputable source(Jim Weise who is a knowledgeable Buick guru, Hi Jim). TA SP1 intake, 800 QJ carb, Roller rockers, Headers and big 3" pipes all the way to the bumper. This video shows the motor as it looks today and it is different from the original video. The intake is the only visible part changed but the valve covers have been painted Buick red to match the rest of the motor. I like them better red than black as they were. Did the additional motor work earlier in the year but am just now getting around to a new video.
Motor is probably 9:00 to 1 or so comp ratio(cast hyperutectic pistons)as both the block and heads have been milled a total of about .060" and has homebrewed port and bowl work along with stainless stage1 size valves.
Recorded 12/13/09 Best heard with headphones. Oh yeah it's in stereo babee!
1972 Buick Skylark ride
This is a video of my late brother Andrew and his 1972 Buick Skylark. Andrew was undergoing chemo at the time this video was shot so it was one of his last rides in the car. He had the car for 20 years and performed all sorts of modifications on it such as rebuilding the engine, converting the car to a five speed manual and toughening up the suspension. The car is a Buick 350, 4 bbl and five speed. Andrew passed away on December 31st, 2006. The music is from King Crimson.

This is my 1972 Buick Skylark 350-4bbl. It is bone stock with the exception of duel Exhaust. Sorry that the camera's microphone is sucky, but I think you'll get the gist.
