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 his 1972 Buick Skylark's 1971 (10-compression) Buick 455 Stage-1 motor with TA Performance's "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!!!

Johnnylark's 1972 Buick 455 SKYLARK. 7-3-2016
Ever since my Holley 850 and engine's TOTAL timing was "tampered with," my 455 does not sound like Johnny's (as they did sound identical since day-1). Tyrone said my timing light does NOT read TOTAL timing, that why my motor is currently experiencing "extreme detonation/pinging above 3000-rpm with an extreme loss in POWER. Tyrone is getting his brother's timing light that reads TOTAL timing this coming week. Then, my total timing will be set 33-34 degrees total.
