This is my 84 Buick grand national racing a blown big block Camaro. I ran 9.17 on this pass, and got the win. I was fighting Boost controller issues, only 20 lbs. Boost instead of the supposed 30. This is a mid-low 8 second car.
In car 8 second quarter mile pass
This was taken in one of the fastest Buick Regal T-Types in the country.
The camera was tied down to the cage. The car pulled so hard it moved the
camera during the run, then put it back when he let off the gas.
GN vs. GT500
I ran a GT500, he wasnt talking to anyone, just acting like his GT500 was a
Ford GT or something. He did a really weird burnout and I let him get the
jump. I guess he liked his rims to much to get a stickier tire because all
he did was spin. It wasnt even a race, his time ended up being 21.41

In the final rounds of TSM, Dick was having engine problems (head gasket

'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
