9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140
We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at
the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also
the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9's at the time.Thanks to
Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been
taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to
bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our
shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new
powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the
engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and
get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138
hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the
5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing
adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle
the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool
but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to
straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We're sure it'll
go into the 9.40's yet and maybe even 30's after everything is worked out.
68 Chevelle SS Restoration
Daily Driver to Resto-Mod
Im writing you in regards to a 68 Chevelle SS that we built a little
while ago when I was the manager at a body shop in Portland, Maine. The
car was built mostly by myself, and the shop foreman, Dave Gribbin, on
nights and weekends.
There were some things done by the other employees while things were a
little slow, but Dave and I did the vast majority of the work after hours.
the car for a customer who had purchased it as a restored, albeit non
Matching, SS396 who had grown bored with the stocker after a few months...
After some shopping around at a few local body shops and custom shops,
he wandered into my office. After speaking to him at some length, (it
felt like a job interview) about my experience with hot rods, muscle
cars and drag racing (my family owned Winterport Drag way in Winterport
Maine for 12 years) and speaking with Dave for a while Jim decided
that he trusted us with the chore of painting the car... as all
projects do this one snowballed from a mild custom paint job to a frame
Jim DeWolfe was a budding car guy, he had
purchased a Chevelle SS, a 1968 big block Chevelle SS. The problem with
the Chevelle is that it was just another Chevelle, he wanted it to stand
out and be different so he brought it to us to see what we were about.
All of us being major gear heads and muscle car nuts finally
rubbed off onto Jim and soon a full blown project was in the works.
We started by completely disassembling the entire car, and within
a month (again working mostly nights and weekends) we had a bare frame
sitting on a lift in the shop. I ground down all the welding slag from
the original assembly and prepped it for paint. We hung the frame in
the booth and applied a fresh coat of single stage black urethane.
Everything on the frame was replaced except for the front upper and
lower control arms and factory spindles. We used Eibach prokit
springs, SSBC 12" front disc conversion, Hellwig hd swaybars and
Edelbrock tubular lower and turnbuckle uppers (that just happened to
be powder coated the correct red) along with chassis stiffeners to go
with the East Coast Performance sourced DTS 12 bolt that was fitted
with 9inch ford tube ends that allowed us to attach the SSBC 11" rear brake
kit with e brake. Before putting the body back on we ran the stainless
brake lines, ½ aluminum fuel line, set the gas tank in place, and prepped
of the floor for bed liner. All the brake hardware and the shocks were
painted the matching candy red from SEM color horizons. The Merlin 509's
block was painted the base silver bolted to the TCI turbo 400 and set in place
on energy suspension mounts. Whats funny is Jim originally ordered Merlins
Then the rear end was connected to the transmission via a color matched
Williams Brothers driveshaft. Next the body was lowered onto the fresh
chassis, once the body was bolted down on some more of energy
suspensions products, we set to straighten out the body from its 40
year life. Dave stripped the body to metal and aligned all the panels
before applying the high build primer letting one of the techs
final block the car and prep it for paint. We commissioned Tommy Mcneil
from Bonehead designs in Gilmington Iron Works New Hampshire to lay out the
awesome tribal flame job, before he was done he applied a drop shadow, and
outlined the flames with process blue.
The flames and pin striping also go into the door jambs, and for a
touch Tommy also applied a little hot rod pin striping around the trunk
Finishing touches on the outside include all new chrome trim,
new Hella headlights. On the inside we went mostly stock with a
gauge cluster, a couple auto meter gauges, Scat Pro Car seats, new
carpet and trim panels, along with recovered rear seat, and a Budnik
steering wheel for some flash. Dan Mayhew installed a kickin' sound system
inside with a glove box mounted eclipse head unit, which also controls
Jims I-pod, two kicker amps, and two kicker subs in the trunk in a box
that Jim built himself, with some mids and highs in the kick panels
and rear deck. For rolling stock, we chose 20x8 and 20x10 Coddington
smoothie IIs with 255-35s up front and 295-30s out back.
Todd Lapointe finished up the mechanical aspects including Lokar
cables and braided stainless flexi lines for the brakes, got everything
adjusted and tweaked. After an alignment, and a tune by the local carb guru
ready for a road test, and let me tell you this thing is fast..
This car was built in about 9 months of nights and weekends, it was a total
team effort, and it was a pleasure to work with someone who didn't mind
money it took to make the build correct.

Satan's Rat-Rod: 1931 Ford - /BIG MUSCLE
• Henry Kessler
The engine is out of a 1952 Diamond-Reo tractor and makes 1,640 lb-ft of
torque. The chassis is pieced together from old light poles from the City
of Hollywood. The body... that's from a 1931 Ford. Meet Gretchen, one of
the coolest rat-rods we've ever seen and a ride that turns heads wherever
it goes. This ain't no hybrid, instead it's a black smoke belching,
gasoline guzzling, animal of a car that's not only amazing to look at, but
with some cool hidden engineering, has the ability to surprise even the
most hardened of motor-heads.

As a mostly original head turner that spent most of its life in a high end
Japanese car collection, this non-Stage GSX is undoubtedly one of the
finest investment opportunities we've ever featured! If you're looking for
some killer Detroit metal that has an outstanding history and an impressive
level of performance, Buick built it and RK Motors Charlotte is selling it!
Looking sinister and feeling solid, this GSX carries 100% of its original
sheetmetal and today, thanks to one repaint and a life of collection and
museum time, the car's mirror-like profile is a largely flaw-free
celebration of factory authenticity. Naturally, panel gaps are excellent
throughout and everything seals up tight and rattle-free. And the car's
finish is brilliant, using modern pigment to achieve a depth and gloss that
makes it impossible to ignore at a show or on the street.
You probably noticed that I opened this description with the words
"non-Stage Buick". That's because this GSX actually carries the more
street-friendly version of Buick's 455 that is rated at 350 horsepower and 510 lb./ft.
of torque. Think that's a bad thing? Think again. Only 278 of Buick's 1970
GSX units were equipped with the non-Stage 455, as opposed to 400 Stage 1
cars. So, if you're looking for a highly collectible tri-shield, you've
definitely found it! Hoist this coupe's three-color hood and you'll find a
mechanically freshened, and aesthetically pleasing, Buick big block which
wears a correct 1231738 casting number, an April (D) 28th (28) of 1970
casting date and a correct partial VIN. At the top of that vivid red block
a familiar Rochester Quadrajet carburetor mixes oxygen from functional ram
air hood scoops with dino juice that's supplied by original stainless fuel
lines. At the sides of that carburetor, free flowing heads hang stamped
steel valve covers over deep breathing cast iron Exhaust manifolds. In front of those manifolds,
a traditional points distributor shoots fire through new Packard TV R
Suppression wires. And in front of that distributor, a gloss black radiator
circulates coolant through pliable hoses and authentic tower clamps.
Behind that big engine a rugged, and original, turbo Hydra-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission
hangs a correct partial VIN and a non-Stage 455 (BA) assembled on April
28th (483) of 1970 (70) build plate in front of a familiar 10 bolt rear end
that's complete with tall 3.90 gears. At the ends of that drivetrain an
original Rally Ride Control suspension, which includes stiffer springs, a
rear stabilizer bar and a rear lower control arm assembly, combines with
factory power steering and factory power front disc and rear drum brakes to
provide quick stops and great handling. And at the corners of that chassis,
torque flows to the pavement through four chrome Magnum 500s which spin
fresh 245/60R15 Goodyear Eagle STs around clean red, white and blue center
caps. And speaking of floors the car's straight and solid pans, which are
bolted to a damage-free frame, still hang 99% of their satin black paint
over satin black suspension components that still retain much of their
Climb inside this timeless Buick muscle car and you'll find a mostly
original GM code 188 interior that is both comfortable and appealing.
Covered in pliable Madrid Grain surfaces, the car's firm front bucket and
rear bench seats are comfortable, solid and provide spacious seating for at
least four. At the center of the cockpit, an optional stainless-trimmed
console props an original horse shoe shifter above like-new black carpet,
heavy duty rubber floor mats and new sill plates. Above that console, a
warp-free dash hangs bright wood applique between original Rally gauges and
an original Sonomatic radio. Connecting the driver to the road is a great
looking original steering wheel which carefully positions three
satin-finished spokes around a small "BUICK" branded horn button. And
behind the passengers, a virtually untouched trunk frames an original
factory decklid decal, a full-size spare tire and a high quality
If you're a fan of ultimate Detroit muscle cars that are as pure as they

134023 / 1970 Buick GSX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cweedua
In 1970 Buick introduced the GSX as their answer to Pontiac's GTO Judge and
Chevrolet's Chevelle SS454. Modestly rated at 360hp and 510 ft./lb. of
torque, the GSX Stage 1 was described as a more luxurious HEMI 'Cuda
because of its lighter weight and amazing power. In 2002, this particular
example won a Senior Award from the Buick Club of America and the 'A' Body
of The Year award at the Buick Nationals. In 2010 it racked up Concours
Gold awards at both the Buick Performance Group Nationals and GS Nationals.
Literally every nut and bolt on this GSX Stage 1 has been replaced to
factory standards and showroom shine to ensure that it gets the most points
possible from any discerning judge. Every weld and gap is perfect making
for excellent panel fit and functionality giving this Buick a menacing, yet
luxurious appearance. Chrome bumpers, door handles and window trim add an
element of class and luxury. The combination of black, white and chrome is
complemented by small splashes of color like the rear GSX decals and red
pin stripping around the GSX side stripe. Red, white and blue Buick
tri-shield center caps are bolted to GSX specific chrome trimmed 15 inch
Rallye wheels. Those stylish Rallye wheels are wrapped in reproduction
Super Wide Oval tires as if the car had just left the factory.
Buick's mighty 455 big block V8 was one of the first motors to utilize thin
wall casting and as a result is lighter than a comparable Chevrolet 454.
Take one look under the hood at the numbers matching 455 and you'll see why
this GSX is a gold winning car. Everything from the battery to the decals
has been restored to showroom quality and nothing less than best of show.
This particular GSX was up fitted from the factory with the Stage 1
performance package which added a hotter cam, bigger valves, low
restriction Exhaust and revised jets
in the Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor. The result is an unpublished rating
of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.
This GSX also features Buick's Rallye Ride Control Package which includes a
rear stabilizer bar, firmer front and rear shocks, rear firm ride springs
and rear lower control arm assemblies. Connecting that massive power with
this enhanced driving system is a factory option, numbers matching
close-ratio 4-speed transmission. Equipped in only 188 Buick GSX's for
1970, that transmission sends the torque to the ground via 3.64 gears in a
numbers matching high performance Buick Posi-Traction rear axle. At the
front corners, factory power assisted discs and at the rear corners,
factory power assisted drums bring everything to a stop. The guys at Then
and Now topped off the restoration with a new fuel tank, new fuel lines,
new brake lines, new body mounts and a fresh GM black undercoating.
This sale includes documentation from the GSX Historic Society showing the
car to be GSX number 622 of 678 produced for 1970. Also included are
Concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance Group
Nationals as well as the Buick Club of America gold medal, affixed to the
grille of the car, signifying senior award status. The car features a

transmission and a numbers matching 3.64 high performance rear end. It is

Even after 40 years the interior of the GSX still feels luxurious and
comfortable. The gauge cluster consists of a clock and brightwork set
against wood grain texture. The seats and door panels feature upgraded
vinyl, adding to the fresh feeling created by the nicer GSX dash.
This gorgeous GSX has the hardware to satisfy your wants and the class to
fulfill your needs. It has enough power under its hood, luxury behind its
doors and trophies under its belt to make any car guy happy. The sale

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.
