Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.

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.

Shootout "Buicks vs the World" Nov. 5th, 6th 2010. I talked with the owner
for a while. Very nice, knowlegeable guy with a Buick that I wish I could
call my own.

to answer some comments on here- this is in a commercial area, not
residential. the brake/trac lights are on because my cars abs system is
removed thus activating the lights. i do not need it nor do i use it on
this vehicle. CEL was for an EVAP code thats wasnt turned off on the
program ( not needed as this car is no longer using an oem evap system)
