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.
1971 Buick GS (Gran Sport) Convertible
What a great car! Original owner! It has the Buick 350 c.i. engine under
Great hood scoops, hood mounted tachometer. The paint and interior are
flawless. The 8 track tape player still works! Buick was right up there
with its GM stablemates of Chevelle, GTO, and Cutlass in offering great
performance machines. Based on the same chassis, they still maintained
their individual identities! Those were the days!
RARE PERFECT CONDITION 1941 Buick Super 50 Phaeton 4 door Convertible FOR SALE
1941 Buick Super 50 Phaeton convertible sedan, the first opportunity in 70

spared, photo chronicled with 1600 photos, 1000's of receipts totaling a
documented $220,000! Restoration was done by the #1 Buick authority in the
world Bill Anderson and the entire process is authenticated by noted Buick
historian Terry Dunham. Judged one time, scoring a 394 points out of a
possible score of 400 (99%) by known authorities Buick club of America and
the AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America). This Buick also garnered
both Gold and Senior AACA awards, almost unheard of for any automobile.
Talk about show detailed driveline components, painted grey for the first
production cars ( later they became red) Freshly rebuilt 248cid "fireball"
Dynaflash inline 8 cylinder with twin down draft carburetors, rebuilt super
smooth 3 speed manual transmission, freshly rebuilt and detailed rear
differential. Original color coded wiring, still retaining the Generator

class. Mirror finished in its correct Carlsbad black paint, show waxed and

spare tire! Color matched correct 16" wheels w/ pinstripes, wide whitewall
tires and polished center caps. All the descriptions of the most
spectacular restoration in the world are still second to how this car feels
and the smiles it evokes when she rolls down the road. Great acceleration,
super tight chassis, rattle and squeak, its grace is recognized by every
passerby with a thumbs up. This is really the way to buy a collector car,
the restoration funded by someone else and then own it for just about half
price. These are considered the next "Duesenberg "in the terms of cars to
appreciate quickly, it was also the last 4 door convertible built by GM.
Also keep in mind that World War II was the next year and vehicle
production virtually ceased, again just another notch of rarity. Get
yourself not only a great investment, but a great car to show or just

1938 BUICK SERIES 40 SPECIAL CONVERTIBLE - ONE OF ONLY 2,473
Although the Buick Series 40 is at the low-end of Buick models, you
wouldn't think so looking at this example. These Buick convertible coupes
would come with the still popular rumble seats although soon these would be
a feature from the past. Series 40 and 50 were powered with an L-head 8,
248 cid with 107 hp., an the Series 60, 80, and 90 were powered with an
L-head 8, 320 cid, with 141 horses. Updated "Dynaflash" engines and all
coil sprung suspensions were new for '38 Buicks. The facelifted vertical
grilles had thicker grille bars, a longer hood, and trim levels updates.
Although these 38 Buicks are handsome cars, model year production dropped
23% for a total of 168,689 units. But still this placed Buick in 4th place
during this recession year. This restored Buick is a beautiful machine.
Coated with a wonderful shade of metallic gray, the tan leather interior
and red convertible top boot are really set up for contrasting decor.
Check out those fog lights, dual mounted spares, spot light, and bakelite
steering wheel make this low-end Series 40 look more upscale than it is in
reality. Beautiful car. How many of these Series 40 Special convertibles
still exist? I'm sure it's a rare car. Thanks very much for viewing this
1938 Buick Series 40 Special convertible.
Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
â€¢ 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.

Chasing 200 MPH at the First Ever Ohio Mile! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 8
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, HOT ROD Editor In Chief David
Freiburger explores the very first standing-mile race to be held on the
runway at the Airpark in Wilmington, Ohio. This race was sanctioned by the
East Coast Timing Association, which for years had been running on an old
WWII runway at the airport in Maxton, North Carolina. When military needs
caused the ECTA to lose access to Maxton at the end of the 2011 season, the
city of Wilmington was happy to accept the racers. The very first meet was
filled to capacity with 175 entries, and despite rain delays, 24 vehicles
eclipsed 200 mph at the event. Watch as Freiburger makes his first passes
at Wilmington, hunting for 200 mph in Wayne Jesel's former Busch-series
NASCAR race car.
