JOHNNYLARK'S Stage-1 Buick 455 Skylark with "TA286-08H" Camshaft & 1.6 Rockers!!! 5-30-2013

This was a COOL DAY! I finally met "Johnnylark" of V8buick.com at the Home Depot Parking Lot MUSCLE CAR MEET. YOU MUST SEE THE "entrance" Johnnylark made with this Buick 455 Stage-1 Skylark's TA PERFORMANCE "286-08H" cam CHOPPING like crazy accompanied by his TA PERFORMANCE 1.6 ROCKERS! Johnny & his COOL son "John" made my day. In the video I recorded prior to this one ... I stated that there's NO Buick Muscle Cars attending ... and felt disappointed until I heard ... we ALL heard this Buick 455 Stage-1 chopping "Sinister-Like." This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal (currently at the Dyno Shop). The guy in the white wife-beater suggesting that Johnny "reverse it in," actually stated a few seconds before that ... "A car like THIS shouldn't be over there by itself." Classic! JOHNNY IS THE COOLEST!!!

134283 / 1970 Buick GS455 Stage 1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/pp2mfqt When GM lifted their ban of engines larger than 400 cubic inches in intermediate cars, the Buick camp responded with a legendary piece of muscle car history. The GS was the go-to for anyone who put equal emphasis on pure comfort and brute power. This Sloan-documented 1970 GS 455 is the beneficiary of an extensive frame-off restoration which has already claimed some significant awards. Accolades include a Concours Gold First Senior award at the 2012 Buick Club of America Nationals. While Buick's GSX made its presence loud and clear with two strong color options, the GS455 went about things in a slightly more sophisticated way. This GS 455 wears a refreshing mix of fresh Burgundy Mist and Glacier White paint for a refined appearance. Only the functional hood scoops hint at the cars performance capabilities. All brightwork has been polished or replaced, including the showroom fresh bumpers which were rechromed by Tri-City Plating. Inside the car, Buick design remains at the forefront. An all new Pearl White interior from Legendary Auto Interiors offers new carpet, bucket seats, door panels, and a taut new headliner. Presentation is great thanks to details like freshly rechromed center console trim and a new steering wheel. Upgrades include a full Custom Autosound stereo system with direct iPod connection. The stock Buick 455 was a strong engine, offering a factory rated 360 horsepower and 510 lb. /ft. of torque but this GS takes things to the next level. Lift the hood and a deceptively stock-appearing bay hosts a fully rebuilt 470ci Buick motor full of high-quality parts. Built by Tri-Shield Performance, the block hosts pieces like Diamond forged pistons, Eagle H-beam rods, and a TA cam. At the top, a ported stock intake works alongside ported and polished aluminum SE Stage 1 heads to help make a stout 507 horsepower. Behind that powerhouse, TH400 automatic transmission rebuilt by TSP spins power back to a 12-bolt rear with versatile 3.31 gears. At either side, headers connect to a 3-inch dual Exhaust system complete with an X-pipe and Flowmaster 50 series mufflers. To the rear, a new Quantum fuel tank and RobbMc fuel pump keep the big Buick properly fed. During restoration, the frame was sand blasted and painted with an industrial urethane before being joined by all new suspension components. Power front disc brakes and rear drums provide plenty of stopping power while a fully rebuilt power steering system ensures confidence through the corners. The chassis meets the road through new Wheel Vintiques Buick Rally wheels wrapped in Goodyear Polylgas tires. Offering a near-perfect blend of show and go, this award-winning 1970 GS 455 is a great reminder of Buick's performance heritage and a resounding "Yes" to the old slogan, "Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick?"

1970 Buick GSX Engine Rebuild - RKM Performance Center
This 455cid V8 came into the shop under the hood of a 1970 Buick GSX. When new, the motor was capable of propelling the GSX to 13-second quarter mile passes in stock trim. Unfortunately, this one was way past its prime. To get this 455 back in shape, a full rebuld was called for. Technician Jon Sipple gives us a quick overview of the process.





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.

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."





"11-SECOND-STEVE" and his 1986 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL at FLoyd Bennet Muscle Car Show! 6-10-2012
I finally got to meet "11-Second-Steve" in person today at The Floyd Bennet Field Auto/Muscle Car Show! Actually, if it wasn't for Steve's invite(s) ... I would have missed a really great display of ... AUTOMOBILES!!! Steve wants to race his 1986 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal against mine. ME TOO! Steve also informed me as to how to do a BURNOUT ... "correctly!" Steve stated that Ginger's Burnout with my Stage-1 Regal was BETTER than mine (Youtube video)! LOL Steve's Regal is SWEET ... put together correctly. I learned a few performance/traction mods from him. STEVE RAN AN 11:90 THIS WEEKEND ,,, without manually-shifting the Buick! He just put the shifter in DRIVE ... and let the 455 & the TH400 automatic transmission do the rest! Guess who showed up also????
