This is the TA 288-92H cam. Bought cam and lifters used from a reputable source(Jim Weise who is a knowledgeable Buick guru, Hi Jim). TA SP1 intake, 800 QJ carb, Roller rockers, Headers and big 3" pipes all the way to the bumper. This video shows the motor as it looks today and it is different from the original video. The intake is the only visible part changed but the valve covers have been painted Buick red to match the rest of the motor. I like them better red than black as they were. Did the additional motor work earlier in the year but am just now getting around to a new video.
Motor is probably 9:00 to 1 or so comp ratio(cast hyperutectic pistons)as both the block and heads have been milled a total of about .060" and has homebrewed port and bowl work along with stainless stage1 size valves.
Recorded 12/13/09 Best heard with headphones. Oh yeah it's in stereo babee!

Used to go for ice cream and the odd show and shine. Meant as stress relief
but at times has opposite effect!

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!!!
'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by
Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History
Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into
the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar
Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom
fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the
bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of
another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their
invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men,
William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building
business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant
realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with
Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were
regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks
through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the
compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for
the largest company in the world."

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• 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.
1972 Buick Skylark
1972 Buick Skylark with a Hi-Compression Buick 350-4
I've had this car since October 8th 2010, I'm a senior in High School and
it is my first car, my dad payed for half of it and I payed for the other
half. I pay for the performance goodies that go into it and the occasional
parts that break too. I love driving this old monster even though premium
gas prices are outrageous but the rumble and roar of that massive V8 are
well worth it. I take pride in this car and my dad and I do most of the
work on it ourselves, it's somewhat of a father-son project. We've done
nothing but make this car a heck of a lot better than it was when we got
it. In the great words of GS Club of America, going fast with class, that's
what these Buicks do.
Stock HP: 175hp (for 1972 Buick 350-4 8.5:1 compression)
Rear-wheel HP: 226hp @ 4326 RPM (should be a little higher with the Hyfire
and Mallory coil)
Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher)
Net HP: approx. 260hp
Compression: 9.5:1 (not sure, but definitely higher than stock because
without prem fuel I get spark knock with the correct fuel to air mixture)
Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip
Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with
a shift kit for fun :D)
