1972 Buick Skylark
Here's an amazing survivor Skylark! It has a great running original 350ci
V8 and turbo 350 automatic transmission,
power steering, power disc brakes, factory air conditioning, and upgraded
dual Flowmaster Exhaust! Everything
under the hood is stock! It does have a new battery and new points though!
The interior is all original except the carpet has been replaced at some
point, and the dashboard remains unmolested and in complete working order.
All the lights, wipers, signals, and the blower are working great, it has
nice glossy green paint, and very nice glass. It has the original 14 inch
Buick wheels with 215/70/14 Firestone raised letter tires, and it is
believed to have only 81k miles on the car! This is a fantastic car that is
ready to be restored a little more!

buick GS 455 stage 1 first startup on engine stand
This is the first startup of my 455 stage 1 after rebuild! It crashed few
months ago :((.
Exhausts on this teststand are the
stock cast headers. carb is a beautyfull barry grant 850 demon on an
edelbrock 455 performance intake. cam is a SP 1165R, 112LC. Later, we
replaced it with a stock GS cam for smoother running. TA 1.65 red roller
rockers. heads flowed and ported. SP/FM hypereutectic pistons. Kenne Bell
valve covers. they look kinda cool, don't they?
This should push around 390HP with the stock cam and around 430HP with the
SP cam! runs like a baby :). listen!
1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
1980 Buick Skylark Dealer Demo
This is form a 1979 promotional LaserDisc that I found it is for 1980 model
At the beginning of this disc you will hear some audio tones, these where
used to program the PR-7800 LaserDisc player, and you will also see single
frames of what is on the entire disc as well as still pictures of each
model of Buick available that year
This WAS the first interactive video experience, the on board CPU in the
PR-7800 allowed you to program the viewing and interact with the disc using
the remote control. The PR-7800 was intorduced 3 years before the IBM PC-XT
In 1978 GM contracted with Pioneer and MCA/DiscoVision to put the Pioneer
PR-7800 LaserDisc player into its dealerships, the discs where to be used
for demonstrations as in this disc or for training purposes.
Now in the early days of laserDisc manufacture there was a very high
failure rate, sometimes as high as 85% during the mastering/pressing
process, so that left a lot of sides of discs that where unusable. Well
these where used to fill the blank side of a disc, the "dead" side was then
coated with a special plastic that was clear to the human eye, but it would
not reflect the laser beam, thus the side would not play. Well the coating
can be removed with rubbing alcohol, which is what I did.
These reject discs will ONLY play on the older style of laserDisc player
that uses a laser tube
