The Cars of Queens: Part II - BIG MUSCLE
Big Muscle continues its New York adventure with its second installment on the cars of Queens, NY. This week we're taking a look at a stunning 1967 Buick GS 400 and a highly modified 1969 Dodge Charger. These are not garage queens, but two bad-ass muscle cars that see duty on the open road, local road and auto-x courses and of course the occasional trip to the drag strip.
1919 Buick First start since 1952
This is the first startup of this 1919 buick six roadster that had been sitting in a barn in ohio since 1952. It was parked there with a bad differential. My boss bought it on Ebay and i gently disassembled the engine, cleaned out the 50+ year old oil, freed up the piston rings and put it back together. I had to substitute a newer coil to get a strong spark and had manually filled the float bowl of the carburetor. No fuel pump was hooked up or water in the engine hence the short run time. This is a very cool early overhead valve engine with an aluminum crankcase,cast iron cylinder block, roller tappets, exposed valvetrain, zero gap piston rings, and electric start. This car had about 14,000 miles on the odometer. Enjoy the video! Check out my other video/slide show for engine disassembly pictures.
Street Race feelings inside car
My 1965 Buick Skylark have a 1973 455cid smog engine and open headers. It sounds almost like a tractor.. But it have torque enough! ;)
Buick GS400 Burnout
This is my 1967 Buick GS 400. I had to post this because it appears there are not a lot of '67 Buick GS 400's doing burnouts on YouTube. It sure is fun practicing burnouts. I certainly could have stayed in it a little longer. I'll just have to keep practicing!! LOL!! What a perfect night!
