This is the most recent chapter of the famous Hemi vs. Buick shoootout,
with the added twist that the winner of Hemi vs Buick squares off against
an L88 Corvette. The shootout was hosted by Hot Rod Magazine, and was run
at Cordova IL in 2006. The cars are required to be compliant with stock
appearing rules as defined by the F.A.S.T. Musclecar racing series
(www.fastracesorg), with the exception of racing slicks being allowed.
This is the first of a series of short movies taken at the Buick GS
Nationals in Bowling Green, Kentucky in 2012. The GS Nationals is held each
fall in Bowling Green, Kentucky and features a car show and drag racing,
showcasing the heavy-hitters of Buick performance - the big block Buick,
exemplified by the torquey 455 Stage1 and the turbocharged 3.8 V6, more commonly known as the
famous Grand National engine.
The equipment being tried out is the new Canon Rebel EOS T4i and the GoPro
Hero2. The audio is raw and unsweetened with the GoPro recording muffled
through its housing and the Canon using the built-in mic. The Canon also
uses the 18-55 mm kit lens.

As a mostly original head turner that spent most of its life in a high end
Japanese car collection, this non-Stage GSX is undoubtedly one of the
finest investment opportunities we've ever featured! If you're looking for
some killer Detroit metal that has an outstanding history and an impressive
level of performance, Buick built it and RK Motors Charlotte is selling it!
Looking sinister and feeling solid, this GSX carries 100% of its original
sheetmetal and today, thanks to one repaint and a life of collection and
museum time, the car's mirror-like profile is a largely flaw-free
celebration of factory authenticity. Naturally, panel gaps are excellent
throughout and everything seals up tight and rattle-free. And the car's
finish is brilliant, using modern pigment to achieve a depth and gloss that
makes it impossible to ignore at a show or on the street.
You probably noticed that I opened this description with the words
"non-Stage Buick". That's because this GSX actually carries the more
street-friendly version of Buick's 455 that is rated at 350 horsepower and 510 lb./ft.
of torque. Think that's a bad thing? Think again. Only 278 of Buick's 1970
GSX units were equipped with the non-Stage 455, as opposed to 400 Stage 1
cars. So, if you're looking for a highly collectible tri-shield, you've
definitely found it! Hoist this coupe's three-color hood and you'll find a
mechanically freshened, and aesthetically pleasing, Buick big block which
wears a correct 1231738 casting number, an April (D) 28th (28) of 1970
casting date and a correct partial VIN. At the top of that vivid red block
a familiar Rochester Quadrajet carburetor mixes oxygen from functional ram
air hood scoops with dino juice that's supplied by original stainless fuel
lines. At the sides of that carburetor, free flowing heads hang stamped
steel valve covers over deep breathing cast iron Exhaust manifolds. In front of those manifolds,
a traditional points distributor shoots fire through new Packard TV R
Suppression wires. And in front of that distributor, a gloss black radiator
circulates coolant through pliable hoses and authentic tower clamps.
Behind that big engine a rugged, and original, turbo Hydra-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission
hangs a correct partial VIN and a non-Stage 455 (BA) assembled on April
28th (483) of 1970 (70) build plate in front of a familiar 10 bolt rear end
that's complete with tall 3.90 gears. At the ends of that drivetrain an
original Rally Ride Control suspension, which includes stiffer springs, a
rear stabilizer bar and a rear lower control arm assembly, combines with
factory power steering and factory power front disc and rear drum brakes to
provide quick stops and great handling. And at the corners of that chassis,
torque flows to the pavement through four chrome Magnum 500s which spin
fresh 245/60R15 Goodyear Eagle STs around clean red, white and blue center
caps. And speaking of floors the car's straight and solid pans, which are
bolted to a damage-free frame, still hang 99% of their satin black paint
over satin black suspension components that still retain much of their
Climb inside this timeless Buick muscle car and you'll find a mostly
original GM code 188 interior that is both comfortable and appealing.
Covered in pliable Madrid Grain surfaces, the car's firm front bucket and
rear bench seats are comfortable, solid and provide spacious seating for at
least four. At the center of the cockpit, an optional stainless-trimmed
console props an original horse shoe shifter above like-new black carpet,
heavy duty rubber floor mats and new sill plates. Above that console, a
warp-free dash hangs bright wood applique between original Rally gauges and
an original Sonomatic radio. Connecting the driver to the road is a great
looking original steering wheel which carefully positions three
satin-finished spokes around a small "BUICK" branded horn button. And
behind the passengers, a virtually untouched trunk frames an original
factory decklid decal, a full-size spare tire and a high quality
If you're a fan of ultimate Detroit muscle cars that are as pure as they
are cool, it just doesn't get any better than this awesome yellow Buick!

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.
