1971 GS 455, Stage 1 with F1C Procharger
Rich's 71 GS after replacing the D1 procharger with a bigger F1C. Some fine
tuning to be done yet, and then off to the track.
The car was mid 11s on 17" drag radials before.
69 Buick GS 350-4 barrel
This is my bone stock, save for the demon carb( it is an original four
barrel motor though) 69 GS 350, factory manifolds without mufflers because
i'm installing headers very soon, with purple hornie glasspacks:D can you
say irritated neighbours? I'm going to get the T/A manifold for it along
with some 3.91 gears (it has a chevy 12 bolt posi) and maybe a cam, the
aforementioned stuff with the longtube headers should be a pretty peppy
car, these old buick 350's make a lot of torque, the way it is now it will
easily brake both tires loose and melt them during a brakestand, with the
open manifolds it will even lay a couple of 20 foot long strips just
stompin on the gas, not bad for a stock converter, stock 3.30 gears and
3600 pound car, this paticular motor was rated at 285 hp (net) and 360
ft-lbs of torque from the factory, and I believe they had 10:1 compression.
The buick 350 actually has a longer stroke than a chevy 396 big block it's
3.85", this makes for Alot of down low go, and a good starting point.

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.

a moron. See the Buick's entire story and evolution at BurtonMachine.com.
