This vehicle was acquired this week, the description above is what was given to us by the previous owner, he purchased a vehicle from us and we took this on trade. I have personally driven the car on the street about 20 miles and it is a BEAST...If you are taking it far away, I suggest you have it shipped because it has a fuel cell that only holds 10 gallons. It is certified to do 10.5 second quarter miles. It is currently inspected for the state of Massachusetts and comes with a clear MA title. The mileage is over 100k miles and we do not have an accurate record as to the original mileage, the build out basically refurbished absolutely everything in the car. Call me if you have questions. 617-538-2099 Please close quickly, we can keep the car indoors and safe for a reasonable amount of time but payment must be made within 72 hours of auction end unless arrangements have been agreed to ahead of time...The previous owner has probably $30k-$35k++ invested in the car..He mostly just drove it around town, ran it at a track maybe 3 times. He is not really a gear head, he bought a VOlvo XC90 and this was his one frivoulous toy. I met him at his home, so I have a good understanding of where the car came from. Please do not delay, if you are interested we move the iron, I am going on vacation April 12 so that is why it is on EBAY...we are moving everything out. You can pickup after that date but please pay on time.
1955 Buick Century 322 Nail head First Start & Cam Break-in
This is the first start and cam break-in of my rebuilt 55 Buick Century 322
nail-head. The NOS fuel pump lasted about 2 minutes. The box fan I was
using to cool the engine was not giving enough airflow. I had to use the
industrial fan I use for painting. The carburetor that I rebuilt about 5
years ago has some idle jets plugged up. (I must not have gotten all the
gas out of it when I put it in storage) On the plus side, no oil/water
leaks and good oil pressure.

JOHNNYLARK'S Stage-1 Buick 455 Skylark with "TA286-08H" Camshaft & 1.6 Rockers!!! 5-30-2013
This was a COOL DAY! I finally met "Johnnylark" of V8buick.com at the Home
Depot Parking Lot MUSCLE CAR MEET.
YOU MUST SEE THE "entrance" Johnnylark made with this Buick 455 Stage-1
Skylark's TA PERFORMANCE "286-08H" cam CHOPPING like crazy accompanied by
his TA PERFORMANCE 1.6 ROCKERS!
Johnny & his COOL son "John" made my day. In the video I recorded prior to
this one ... I stated that there's NO Buick Muscle Cars attending ... and
felt disappointed until I heard ... we ALL heard this Buick 455 Stage-1
This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal
(currently at the Dyno
The guy in the white wife-beater suggesting that Johnny "reverse it in,"
actually stated a few seconds before that ... "A car like THIS shouldn't be
over there by itself." Classic!
JOHNNY IS THE COOLEST!!!

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.
