At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick
glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it
gets more and more curious.
The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number
356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21,
1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front
compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with
six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear
compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation
about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to

Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just

A 1/4 mile ride in Joel Nystroms Hemi 4 speed GTX
Mike Kamm sat in the back seat of my 67 Plymouth GTX, an original 30,000
mile Hemi 4 speed car, while I carefully baby it down Norwalks 1/4 mile
dragstrip. This pass was run on original style G70-14 bias ply tires, so
there was tire spin. Thats why I had to back pedal a little in 1st and the
shift light never went off in 2nd. I had the light set to come on at 6500
rpm, but wasn't shifting untill 7000. This was a mid 11 second pass at
about 124 mph.
Check it out from behind the car:
9 Second Buick GS Stage1
This was the car's 1st 9 sec. pass. Built around the GS Club Of America's
GS Street Eliminator Class rules. A real street car naturally aspirated
with a complete Exhaust system,full
interior etc. It is the first GS to run in the 9's using the original cast
iron Stage1 heads, under the GSE rules! It is a stock stroke 455 with an
.038 overbore to give it 464ci. It weighs 3500lbs and it idles smooth
enough to still run the power brakes! This pass was email@example.com mph and was
backed up with a 9.99@ 132.7 run.

sound of a V8 engine making a burnout from 0-100mls in 10secs.!!!!
