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.

1971 BUICK GSX 455 1 OF ONLY 124 MADE SOLD! NEW UPDATE FINISHED AND HAS BEEN SOLD!!!
This is a original 1971 Buick GSX 455 car. Yes this is a original, NOT A
CLONE, 1 of only 124 ever made in 71 that includes 350, 455 and 455 stage 1
cars all together. This car is registered in the GSX registry. This car was
not known to exist until it was discovered a little while ago. There are 3
known so far out of all 1971 GXS's to have a paint code of 62 which is
Bittersweet Mist. The others Bittersweet Mist GSX's are restored one is
only a 350 engine and 350 auto tranny car. The other is a stage 1 455 car.
So this is the only 455 engine 1971 GSX made in the color Bittersweet Mist
I have talked to the original owner and have a document that has been
signed by him and notorized stating that this is a true 1971 GSX, which he
bought on march 12, 1971. I have the original protecto plate This car is a
4owner car, and can be traced to every owner and all the owners are still
alive. This was bought brand new at Key Buick & Opel in Jacksonville,
Florida on 3/12/71. It stayed in Florida until mid 1979, then it went to
the last of the 3 owners in Alabama where it stayed until about a month ago
2/1/08. Now it resides with me here in Pa. This was always a southern car
and is about 98% rust free. It has just a little around the back rear
window and a pin hole in the rear seat pan and where the battery box is,
that was because of a leaky battery but thats it. I have alot of picture of
the doors, trunk, floors, fenders, rad support, frame, etc and all of that
is 100% solid. This is a very original car with the exception for the block
as it was damaged back in the late 1970's and could not be repaired so it
was changed with another but the rest of the car is all near original as
you see it in the video. This car has had the passenger side door fixed
back in 1971 only 3 months after it was new this was told to me by the
original owner. The paint is nearly all original with the exception for the
drivers door and rear quater. The interior, transmission, which is the
original matching numbers turbo 400,
original posi rear end, suspension, etc. This is a unmolested car that
still retains, from what I can tell, all of it's original sheetmetal with
the exception of the drivers door from what I can tell. you can see in the
pictures the faded original paint as well as the original faded painted GSX
stripes and hood treatment and the faded GSX decals. This car has a tanish
interior and has the following options 455 motor, automatic turbo 400, air conditioning, GSX option,
Bittersweet Mist paint, tan bucket seat interior, center console, courtesy
light package, front and rear bumperettes, power steering, power disk
brakes, 3:42 posi rear end heavy duty 10 bolt that only came on the GSX,15"
ralley rims. It is sometimes hard to find 1970 GSX's but there out there as
they made 678 and they only came in 2 colors yellow or white now compare
that to a 1971 GSX which they only made 124 period and you can get them now
in special order colors because every GSX had to be special ordered, that
was the only way you could get one. If anyone wants a chance to own a
original 1971 GSX here is your chance. These cars in #1 condition will
bring near $150,000 because of what they are. The car was inspected by a
very well know GSX expert and National judge( Duane Heckman of
philadelphia, pa.). He shared his findings and pictures with a other well
known GSX judge to also verify that THIS IS A GENUINE 1971 GSX. He took
every date code he could find. He proved that the car has all of it's
original sheetmetal with the exception of the drivers side door. The
drivers door is a genuine GM part but was put on the car a couple months
after it was purchased. There was some damage on the very front of the
drivers side quater as well. This is why the black paint is mostly off the
drivers side stripe. These 2 areas were repainted in 1971 as well as the
stripes. Now the rest of the car still reatains it's original paint and
stripes as well as GSX decals. The proof is in the stripes being that they
are original to the car. The spoiler, tach, wheels, interior, bumpers,
headlight assemblys, hood, suspension are all original to the car. All of
the options on the car was also verified. I hope this helps everyone out.
There is proof on this car and it is now documented as a true original 1971
GSX in bittersweet mist. if anyone has any questions about the inspection
please email me or call 570-875-7109. Thanks for your interest...
UPDATE::::: The car has had a rotisserie high grade restoration and
recieved Gold 2 times and the nationals. The car is for sale. The car was
put back to factory specs everywhere as well as finding a correct block. If
anyone is interested please feel free to call me. Sorry the car has been
sold for $100,000.
If anyone has any questions please email me or call Me(Marty) at

1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.

Chevy, Olds, Pontiac and Buick V8 engines are not the same!
Evidently a segment of the automotive enthusiast population does not
believe that the four main GM divisions had their own versions of a V8. In
addition there may be people who simply never knew that fact.
In this video I show photos of a 350 cid engine from Buick, Oldsmobile,
Pontiac and Chevrolet and highlight the differences in each. Buick and
Pontiac V8 engines went out of production in 1980, Oldsmobile's in 1990 and
of course the Chevy versions lasted a lot longer because they were cheaper
to produce and easier to smog/mpg certify.
I challenge anyone to video themselves removing a Chevy SBC head and then
installing it on a Pontiac, Olds or Buick engine.
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.
