TA_284-88H-350 and twin walker turbo mufflers make her sound like a beast. Just have to find someone to rebuild and tune the stock carb.
Get rid of the pegleg diff and it will be time for some ricer kills.
Huge thanks to Tim @ TA Performance these guys make buick parts like no one else.
Buttered Toast Twin Turbo Buick dyno test
1963 Buick LeSabre wagon with a twin-turbo Buick 350. The engine is a 1971 350 with
over 100k miles on it. It is bone stock inside, it has the original intake
and has never been opened up. The turbo
kit came from Burton Machine. The wagon is being built by Red Dirt Rodz in
Stillwater, OK. At first glance, the power output may seem low, but this
engine originally made 174 hp at the flywheel, and that was before the 100k
miles. We doubled the output, and this thing pulls like a freight train.
This was our test engine, we are building a new Buick 350 with a custom cam
from Comp Cams, ported heads and all the little tricks that make these
Buick small blocks the most underrated engines in the performance market.
There will be more to come.

'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

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
â€¢ 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.
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.
