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!

PONTIAC ALLEY with "T.K."/ Buick 455 Stage-1 Regal TCI Shifter Update #8. 7-16-2011
The TCI shifter looks DEVASTATING!!! Tyrone did a perfect install ... considering there were parts MISSING ... apparently Giovanni's shop "mis-placed" them. After the "TCI" became "a-walk-in-the-park-to-me," I decided to raise the "idle" on the Holley750 by 100-rpm. The Stage-1 refused to turn over! The starter was NOT engaging. I immediately "knew" it had to be the orange-thinner-gauge wire I used on the starter ... instead of the THICKER GAUGED RED WIRE I was supposed to use. This video shows that thin/incorrect wire "melted" onto the TA Exhaust header tube. Tomorrow after work ... I am correcting this. I have the correct wire now. The aluminum plate for the TCI shifter column will be purchased next weekend ... and I will then be able to mount the (Park, Reverse, etc) shifter plate securely. NEXT-STOP; BRAND-NEW HOLLEY 850-CFM from Holley.com!!!!!





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. SO-FAR-SO-GOOD!!!

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video! Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world, presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960 Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new, exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's Seat of YouTube!

Shifting a Megashifter 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV 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 watching!

2014 Buick Regal GS AWD Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF In my mind, Volkswagens used to be the "Euro Buick." Positioned as a note above the mass market rabble, VW's Passat shared parts with Audi's A4, the Touareg and Phaeton were luxury cars with a mass market logo on the hood. Then Volkswagen decided this was the wrong strategy for them so they repositioned VW as the German alternative to Toyota and Chevrolet. This left a gaping hole in the market for shoppers looking to step into a Eurpoean near-luxury vehicle that flew under the radar. And then Buick stepped in. Say what? That's right, Buick's Opel-based product offensive has transformed the brand from Barcalounger wheels for the octogenarian to a window into the soul of GM's German brand. This transformation isn't an easy one as Buick's problem wasn't just blue-haired buyers and slinky-soft springs. Buick is the penultimate middle child. Jammed between Chevrolet and Cadillac, brand B's mission is to give Chevy buyers something to aspire to and Cadillac buyers something to graduate from. The Buick Regal I had for a week is in even more of a tight spot being the middle child's middle child slotting between the Verano and LaCrosse. Drive GM's HiPer Strut suspension is designed to bring the steering axis more in line with the tire centerline, something you typically find in rear-wheel drive cars. Aligning the axises more closely results in better tracking, less torque steer and a front tire with a more consistent camber across the suspension's travel. Versus the outgoing model, the front tires contact patch is improved in corners when the front suspension is loaded resulting in higher grip. Coupled with an AWD system that sends 50% of the power to the rear under hard acceleration, we get the first Buick in a long time with virtually zero torque steer. The downside to the trendy new steering knuckle design is feel. Steering is very precise but suffers from the same Novocaine-laced feeback as everything else out there with electric power steering. Coupled with a 58/42 F/R weight distribution, the Regal GS has impeccable manners up to 9/10ths where things go pear-shaped and you start oversteering off into the bushes. Trouble is without steering feedback it's hard to tell where 9/10ths is located. In contrast, the Volvo S60 T6 AWD and S80 T6 AWD offer less grip but more feel. 2014 Buick Regal GS AWD Exterior-007 Driving a FWD Regal back to back with out AWD tester, I kept thinking "there's just something I dislike about the FWD model". As it turns out there is a reason the FWD Regal felt unsettled in the rear over broken pavement, the AWD model gets an entirely different "H-Link" independent rear suspension. Coupled with the active dampers, the Regal felt well composed on a variety of road surfaces despite being tuned firmer than the rest of the American and Swedish competition. Put your foot to the floor and the 2014 GS will run to 60 in 6.7 seconds, exactly the same as the W-Body Regal GS I remember with fond memories. The difference of course is that the W-Body's torque steer made the car feel like it was part car ans part carnival ride while the 2014 model tracks straight and true with zero drama all the way to a 15.2 second 1/4 mile. Stacking this up with the competition, the Regal is notably slower than the Cadillac CTS/ATS 2.0T and Volvo's 3.0L turbocharged models; and a hair slower than the 3.7L Lincoln MKZ, Lexus ES 350 and Acura TL.
