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.
Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Cushner
Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is
anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak
time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government
mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us
back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a
car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the
days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis
Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.

Lot S152 1962 Pontiac Super Duty 421 405 HP 4 Speed
As Stock drag racing heated up at the dawn of the Sixties, the factories
were serving up a constant stream of engines, transmissions and lightweight
body parts. In response, the sanctioning bodies started dedicated classes
to separate the special lightweight factory racers from the amateur weekend
sportsmen running real showroom stockers.
Pontiac answered the competition in 1962 by offering an expanding range of
performance parts and special option packages, the most potent being the
Catalina Super Stock package. At its heart was the 421 CI Super Duty engine
featuring four-bolt mains, a forged steel crank, McKellar solid lifter cam
and dual Carter four-barrel carbs on an aluminum intake. A 4-speed manual
transmission was optional. The Catalina Super Stock saved considerable
weight through the application of aluminum bumpers, hood, fenders and other
alloy components, including, late in the season, an aluminum-case 4-speed.
Owned and raced by Howard Maseles in 1962, the "Packer Pontiac" was number
84 of the run of approximately 180 SS Catalinas. An NHRA C Stock record
holder, the "Packer Pontiac" was lightning quick in Maseles' hands, posting
an 11.73 at the 1962 Indy Nationals, at a time when many of his competitors
were still running in the low-to-mid 12s.
The restoration of this vintage Super Duty Pontiac was done by owner Bill
Blair, High Point, NC and the car is still being campaigned by Bill across
the country at drag strips and car shows.
