1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1, with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two, loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011 issue of HOT ROD Magazine.

1986 Buick Century Limited Start Up, Exhaust, In Depth Tour, and Short Drive
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1986 Buick Century Limited. 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.





Buick Century Odometer
Fixed a non-working odometer gear selection indicator. Problem is 4 resistors on the back of the instrument panel cluster (ipc) that come dislodged over time due to a manufacturing defect.

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."

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.





2001 Buick Century Custom
My 2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic is having some electrical system trouble. Since it's been so cold and disagreeable lately, I took the easy if expensive way out and let the dealership diagnose it. (The automotive electrical shop I send starters and generators off to for rebuilding wouldn't touch the truck.) The dealership says that the ignition switch is bad. I'm not so sure I believe them, as it appears to do little more than send wake-up signals to the various computers. That is, if the wiring diagram can be believed. The whole sequence of events is a long story (some video does exist and might be published in time) starting with the engine hours counter suddenly resetting itself and the blower fan not working on any speed other than high. It got worse from there, with the truck having fits about its ABS and brake system, and dropping out of cruise control if the fan switch was operated. Later I discovered that operating the transfer case would induce the same misbehavior. Ultimately, the blower motor stopped working completely as it had blown a protective fuse on the resistor pack. 2003-2006 and the "classic" 2007 truck models are infamous for having parts of the blower motor wiring burn up, and the dealership found that had happened with this truck. (It must have happened relatively recently, as I never noticed this when replacing the resistor pack and blower motor, both of which were bad. The blower motor would somehow still run, but measured 0 ohms resistance.) The dealership was going to charge for this repair, to the tune of some $500! If you have a similar truck with manual climate controls that is less than 10 years old or has fewer than 150,000 miles on it, DO NOT let a dealership charge for the repair. GM has issued a service bulletin under which burned up wiring, blowers that do not function on all speeds and/or are stuck on high will be repaired AT NO COST and regardless of ownership. I will post a link to this text later on. If you live in Canada, it appears that a recall was done there. So...back to the Buick Century I drove. Apart from the fact that the HVAC blower and resistor pack are crammed into near inaccessibility and the 3100 V6 engine's possible intake manifold gasket issues, I thought it was a fine (if unexciting) little car to drove. It certainly seemed to have a comfortable interior and seating surfaces. Yes, I meant to say "roller skate with an engine" instead of "roller skate with wheels". Most roller skates have wheels. ;-)
