1970 Buick GS 455 V8 Clone
I thought you might like a look at this nice, straight 1970 Buick GS clone.
This one is equipped with a 455 V8 engine and a turbo 400 automatic transmission with shift kit.
All the power is sent back to a rebuilt rear with 3.23 Posi gears. This
Buick has a great presence with light green paint with white roof, tinted
windows and chrome wheels. Options include AM/FM radio with cassette, tan
cloth interior, power brakes and steering, seat belts, tinted windows, and
radial tires with brand new American Racing chrome wheels. I hope you find
it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Organ, EP
With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

1972 Buick Skylark
1972 Buick Skylark with a Hi-Compression Buick 350-4
I've had this car since October 8th 2010, I'm a senior in High School and
it is my first car, my dad payed for half of it and I payed for the other
half. I pay for the performance goodies that go into it and the occasional
parts that break too. I love driving this old monster even though premium
gas prices are outrageous but the rumble and roar of that massive V8 are
well worth it. I take pride in this car and my dad and I do most of the
work on it ourselves, it's somewhat of a father-son project. We've done
nothing but make this car a heck of a lot better than it was when we got
it. In the great words of GS Club of America, going fast with class, that's
what these Buicks do.
Stock HP: 175hp (for 1972 Buick 350-4 8.5:1 compression)
Rear-wheel HP: 226hp @ 4326 RPM (should be a little higher with the Hyfire
and Mallory coil)
Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher)
Net HP: approx. 260hp
Compression: 9.5:1 (not sure, but definitely higher than stock because
without prem fuel I get spark knock with the correct fuel to air mixture)
Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip
Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with
a shift kit for fun :D)

Buick GS 400 and a highly modified 1969 Dodge Charger. These are not garage
queens, but two bad-ass muscle cars that see duty on the open road, local
road and auto-x courses and of course the occasional trip to the drag

1970 Buick GS 455 Burnout and Pass
Buick built a number of great sleepers in the '60s and '70s, since they
were known for style and comfort rather than all out performance. Buick's
big block, the 455 powered a number of high performance muscle cars,
including this all black 1970 Buick Gran Sport. This car is a real sleeper
with its all black paint and base model wheels, but it runs low 12's in the
quarter. This video was taken at the 2012 Buick GS Nationals in Bowling

This car means business! I videoed it before, but with the hood
closed..here it is open, displaying the huge 455 c.i. Buick engine! There
was so much competition within General Motors to show off the prowess of
these "intermediate" models...big engines with trim cars!
