'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!

Starting the Old Cold Forgotten Buick
Oh boy. At least seven attempts later...it finally started. It ran and

power steering leak.

longer your grandpa's cushy sedan; instead the new Regal is more powerful
and has a tighter suspension. In fact this Buick does feel decidedly more
European thanks to the fact it is built on an Opel Insignia platform. The
2014 Buick Regal is a well-rounded sedan with a base price of $29,690 and
the AWD version will cost a couple of grand more.
The Regal is powered by a turbocharged
2.0L direct-injected Ecotec 4-cylinder that makes 259 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy for the AWD model is 19 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on
