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.

Do you like Buick muscle cars? How about a 1972 Buick Riviera GS Stage 1
boat tail that's both show and go! Not only can you take this bad boy to
the local cruise or car show, but it's ready to burst down the quarter mile
in 11.5 seconds @ 119mph. A great 7.50 1/8th mile car, pro bracket racer,
or even the ultimate sleeper for those late night street battles. With a
numbers matching original 455 Stage 1 block, which is the only original
piece under the hood. It's now sitting at 494ci pushing out 670hp ad a
whopping 707ft lbs of blacktop wrinkling torque! This ultimate beast is the
definition of being unique and one of a kind.
Stage 1 455 numbers matching block, but that's about it due to this beast
of beasts being totally re-done in just about every way imaginable by the
southeast's premier engine builder, Al Moody. Bored and stroked to 494CI
and attached to a professionally built freewheeling Cohn transmission with
everything meticulously gone thru and freshened up. The engine has about 50
passes on it before it was just freshened up and by the way; it's NEVER had
any Nitrous. Many TA parts including
aluminum Stage 2 ported heads, polished TA intake, with a Quick Fuel 1050
carb with annular Boosters resting
on top. Engine block reinforced with a TA block girdle and it was short
filled for extra strength. TA solid lifter 284/294 cam, TA roller rockers
and a TA stroker crank. Meziere electric high flow water pump, a belt
driven vacuum pump, aluminum radiator and a complete MSD 6A set up. TCI 11"
Street Dominator 2500 convertor, B&M Pro Stick shifter with a reversed
pattern manual valve body. Long large tube headers that mount up to a very
beautiful sounding and efficient 3" x-pipe Exhaust system, with cut-outs, that flow thru
single chamber Flowmaster mufflers. Large trunk mounted fuel cell with all
the best plumbing and a trunk mounted electric fuel pump. The red top
battery has also been re-located to the trunk and sits in an NHRA approved
battery box and cut-off. Custom Ram-Air designed by Air Inlet Systems out
of Hamilton Ontario Canada with 4" box and tubes that breathe thru the
center headlamp holes. Ford 9" rear end, 4.11 gears with locker, Moser
axles, reinforced nodular case and all HD parts including large studs that
was built to be indestructible. 90/10 QA-1 shocks up front and back and the
sway bar has been removed. This beast weighs in at an unbelievable 4800lbs
with no lightening to the vehicle at all other than the removal of the A/C
system. With all that weight, one would think that lifting the front wheels
off the ground at launch would be impossible but yet this one does and what
an unbelievable site it is to see!
Professionally restored by owner of more than 14 years, the two tone
charcoal gray metallic and black PPG urethane paint was sanded and buffed
to absolute perfection to show off the laser straight body that has never
had a spot of rust its entire life. The under-carriage is just as nice and
well taken care of as the body and interior of this vehicle. Sporting the
exceptional original black leather interior that's still in nearly perfect
condition. The front seats are out of a '70 GS stage 1 and the carpet was
custom done with matching floor mats with the Buick logo stitched in. New
leather wrapped aluminum Grant steering wheel also sports the Buick logo
horn cap. Autometer Sport Comp tach with record and playback along with
added oil temp and pressure, volt and water temp gauges. A 6pt. roll bar
along with Simpson 5pt racing harness keeps you safe and secure. All chrome
and stainless on the car is near perfection as well. Sitting on 15"
polished Torq-Thrust wheels wrapped in Goodyears with Goodyear Drag Radials
out back. This car is being sold with an extra set of Goodyear slicks and
Hoosier Radials, both already mounted on matching Torq-Thrust wheels. Come
test drive this awesome car and you'll want to go straight to the track to
open her up and see just what this beast can do! Don't hesitate on this
one-of-a-kind car that will surely win some more show and go trophies.
This vehicle is located in our Atlanta, GA showroom. For more information,

'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

Jeff Brock Bonneville Buick
Jeff Brock, driving his "Bombshell Betty" 1952 Buick Super Riviera, sets a
new class world-record at Bonneville in early October 2012.
1995 Buick Skylark Custom V6 Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1995 Buick Skylark V6. 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.
The Best Buick Build Ever!
Time compressed build of a 1955 Buick Special custom rod. See this car go
from stock to a custom frame, air ride, custom panels, amazing metal work,
to paint, and finally completion. Apparently these things don't happen in
less than 10 minutes, or even a week. See how it is *really* done. This
ain't no TV show!
1972 Buick Skylark
1972 Buick Skylark with a Hi-Compression Buick 350-4
I've had this car since October 8th 2010, I'm a senior in High School and
it is my first car, my dad payed for half of it and I payed for the other
half. I pay for the performance goodies that go into it and the occasional
parts that break too. I love driving this old monster even though premium
gas prices are outrageous but the rumble and roar of that massive V8 are
well worth it. I take pride in this car and my dad and I do most of the
work on it ourselves, it's somewhat of a father-son project. We've done
nothing but make this car a heck of a lot better than it was when we got
it. In the great words of GS Club of America, going fast with class, that's
what these Buicks do.
Stock HP: 175hp (for 1972 Buick 350-4 8.5:1 compression)
Rear-wheel HP: 226hp @ 4326 RPM (should be a little higher with the Hyfire
and Mallory coil)
Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher)
Net HP: approx. 260hp
Compression: 9.5:1 (not sure, but definitely higher than stock because
without prem fuel I get spark knock with the correct fuel to air mixture)
Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip
Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with
a shift kit for fun :D)
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.
