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.

CDS 1987 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal Domenic UPDATE #1. 10-23-2011
This video was is basically an update of last month.
Prior to starting the "455," I re-tightened the "cheap" alternator belt.
During this video, I was shifting the TCI shifter with "grip-vise" (till I
get to Domenic ... new cable has been in the trunk for weeks) from PARK to
DRIVE & REVERSE ... to monitor the engine's idle (I CAN'T WAIT TILL DOMENIC
INSTALLS/ADJUSTS MY HOLLEY850). My engine "LOVES" 800-850 RPM in PARK gear
... 750-800 in DRIVE.
New updates entail a new "HOLLEY 850 (hand polished) Double Pumper", H.E.I.
re-curved with adjustable vacuum advance, and Air-Lift rear suspension air
Domenic will be doing the honors sometime next week.
SO-FAR-SO-GOOD, THANK GOD.

second video shows the installation and finishing of the new headliner.
