This is THE-BIG-DAY!!!
I just bought the Stage-1 home from the garage ... waiting for Tyrone's 2:40pm arrival, so we go install my TCI Mega-Shifter!!!
I am scheduled to follow Tyrone to his shop ... I'm hoping HE drives the Stage-1 to "PONTIAC ALLEY" as I record for V8buick.com; A PONTIAC-GUY LOVING A BUICK 455 STAGE-1 REGAL!!! LMATFO!!!
NOTICE#1; I gave the Stage-1 a few "revs" at the black Mustang ... whose driver gave me a nice "head-nod."
NOTICE#2; The white Infiniti "got scared" and abruptly made a quick-left turn ... cause' the BIG-BLOCK-BUICK was shaking his vehicle tremendously!!! LMATFO!!!
OH-YEAH; a small 3200-rpm BURNOUT before I parked!
CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL exit from ... "THE-KING!!!" 10-16-2012
... just to monitor the Stage-1's HIGHWAY PERFORMANCE for the 1st time.
When BRUNO and I went for "drive," Bruno couldn't give me anything other
than a "thumb-up" due to my NOT FLOORING it ... nor giving him @
1/2-throttle demos. He wanted me to open-it-up a bit ... I was scared to
upset the Police & neighbors. LOL
THE BUICK PULLS REALLY HARD PAST 2800-RPM!! This video view looks much
slower than the "live' accelerations.
IT'S MUCH faster THAN the 455
Buick motor Scotty at Pee-Gee Performance (in Brooklyn at the time) built
for me ... which is WHAT I WANTED (since some idiot-low-life STOLE that
I NEVER took the "455" past "3500-RPM!" I wanted to get some idea of how
the Buick accelerates between 2000-3500-RPM on these badly thrashed used
$30 street tires. This video looks slower than the "real-time" acceleration
for some reason. Engine temp was a firm 170-degrees all the way to BRUNO'S
I AM VERY HAPPY with my D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 V8 thus far,
Thank-God. MY FRONT SUSPENSION REALLY NEEDS AN UPGRADE for the streets.
UPDATES to follow.
CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL DYNO-SHOP Update#1 6-6-2013
Ralph & John's Dyno
Shop is a GODSEND!!!
This video is self-explanatory ... just listen to Ralph.
Joey is a "BAAAAD-MAN lol."
He suggested (jokingly) taking my Buick 455 V8 to 7000+RPM!!! Joey also
stated that my Stage-1 makes almost no vacuum because of the big camshaft
UPDATES TO FOLLOW.
PONTIAC ALLEY with "T.K."/ Buick 455 Stage-1 Regal TCI Shifter Update #7. 7-16-2011
Tyrone gave me "demos" regarding utilizing this TCI Street-Fighter
Mega-Shifter. It was so-freaking-funny (Much Respect, Tyrone LOL) hearing
Tyrone make the "PONTIAC" engine sounds during his demo!!!
T.K. is "Too-Cool!!!" I remember when I had the type energy T.K. has ...
and I really miss it. Apparently, he is going to follow in his Father's
foot-steps ... and go PONTIAC also.
The next video shows my shifter plate "template" in place.
Massive Barn Find in Portugal
I've identified most of the 180 cars found locked away for 15 years, can
anyone identify any others? I will add them to the video if confirmed 100%.
What are those Formula 1 racers?
CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL "FISHTAIL SCARE!" lol 10-21-2012
Okay; I drove the Stage-1 to Pontiac-Alley today to replace the FAN RELAY
switch that controls my twin DERAL electric fans. We did so ... the fans
STILL REFUSE to engage WITHOUT being wired DIRECTLY into the BATTERY.
I am off for the next 2-day, so that's my project; CHECKING THE
WIRING/CONNECTIONS TO THE FAN RELAY BOX.
I need new/good TIRES out back BADLY!!! All I do now is spin the tires just
I TOOK THE MOTOR TO 5000-RPM instead of my announced 3000-RPM ... by
mistake. THANK GOD for the MSD-REV-LIMITER!!! LOL
Tyrone suggested returning this week so he & I can figure this out.
CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL VIDEOS RUINED BY SPRINT Part#2!!! 9-30-2012
... as explained in the prior video; SPRINT SUCKS!!! Their SYSTEM UPDATE
changed setting in my cellphone, which as a result turned off the AUDIO in
my settings for the camcorder! THAT'S WHY the music for this video. JUST
AIN'T MY STYLE.
That's NOT all; my BEST-THUS-FAR-BURNOUTS/LAUNCHES recorded with my SPRINT
cellphone ... REFUSES TO PLAY ... EVEN ON MY HOME PC!!!!
I ONLY HAVE A VIDEO OF EVIDENCE after the fact! I REALLY HATE SPRINT!
THIS BABY PULLS HARD!!! Considering having "crappy USED tires" ... it
accelerates JUST LIKE MY FRIEND'S 1987 BUICK GRAND NATIONAL! And he has
GOOOOD tires on his Buick!
I REALLY LIKE BUICK 455 STAGE-1 TORQUE BY D&S PERFORMANCE/DAN SMITH!!!
BUICK 455 TORQUE RULES!!!
MY STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL PULLS HARD ... even with worn/bought used for
$30 street tires with hardly ANY tread left!!! Engine never saw past
In this video (and the 2-HUGE BURNOUTS video that REFUSES TO PLAY ... again
SPRINT!), the motor NEVER saw 4000-RPM!
My 1987 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal "briefly" taken to 2,800-RPM to Meineke! 4-02-2011
... ON THE WAY TO MEINEKE (Thanks to THE-KING and his Rochester820!).
Mike (the owner of Meineke) is a very cool/straight-up dude. He treated me
& my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal like Royalty.
This is the 1st time I actually BEAT ON my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal a bit
with the 1973 Buick 455 V8 built by Mr. Dan Smith of D&S Performance in
The TH400 was built by Mr. Tyrone Taylor of PONTIAC-ALLEY secretly-located
in Brooklyn, NY.
WITHOUT Exhaust, the Buick pulls HARD
under 3000-rpm!!! It was very cool BLOWING THE (old slick Oldsmobile 307
burnout tires still on the Regal ... GOTTA get the MT Drag Radials) TIRES
OFF. Engine was running a bit HOT.
Next video ... with 3" true duals!
CDS 1987 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal HOLLEY850 Double-Pumper Upgrade. 4-14-2011
I apologize for this video's abrupt end; my cellphone's memory card got
My new Holley850 Double-Pumper carburetor from Mr. Philip Nearing (a KING
indeed ... also a V8Buick.com Member) was swapped-out earlier this morning
from Mr.Tyrone Taylor's Holley750.
"SUPER-SPECIAL-THANKS" to Mr. Tyrone Taylor of PONTIAC-ALLEY for getting
my new Holley "correct & running!!!"
At 1st, I felt it was the Holley causing the rough ENGINE idle ... (???)
Since the beginning of this Project ... I've first used the factory 1973
Buick 455 Rochester-820 CFM 4-Barrel Carburetor for about 3-months ... then
graduated to Tyrone's Holley750 ... NOW I HAVE MY VERY OWN "HOLLEY-850
4-BARREL DOUBLE-PUMPER CARBURETOR. I hand polished it myself with the help
In closing, the new billet aluminum "overdrive" water pump pulley from TA
Performance IS PERFECT! I never had the "correct" Buick 455 short-nose
water pump pulley ... until NOW. It looks DEVASTATING! The PS belt does NOT
french-kiss this WP pulley like the other did. I just need to get the
1-incorrect bolt in the pulley corrected.
SO-FAR-SO-GOOD, Thank God.
We drag 3 model A fords out of a barn in Ga
Shifting a Megashifter 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
I thought we'd demonstrate how the B&M Megashifter works in regular and
ratchet shifting modes. We used our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am to demonstrate
just how well it functions. This is basically the same way that most
ratchet type shifters operate. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for
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
years to own the #1 judged Buick in the world! It's believed to be the
first Phaeton built as well as 1 of only 467 U.S cars built that year, less
than 1% of the 377,428 cars Buick produced in '41! 5 year, no expense
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
equipped electrical system, its engine compartment detailing is world
class. Mirror finished in its correct Carlsbad black paint, show waxed and
detailed, great looking red (pre distressed) leather interior with seating
for 6. Correct coded tan cloth Stafast convertible top w/ red piping. All
new triple plated chrome and polished stainless trim, restored and working

spoke "Banjo" style steering wheel, great looking engine turned dash trim,

with two tiered shelving, houndstooth mat and original date coded 1940
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
