1972 Buick Skylark 455 or Driving "It' in the rain.

A little video made while taking a little ride in my 72 Buick. A little ride that was interupted by a major downpour. Sorry for the bad audio. My Sony Handycam is not good for outdoor use although this was in a car with the windows rolled up it still is not a quiet car. Car has a self built 455(462 now) and turbo 400 tranny and a 3.42 geared posi rear. BFG 275/60/15 T/A radials. This car is my "It" . What do you call tour car? A He, She or It? Don't worry, No animals were harmed during the making of this video.

1972 Buick Skylark ride
This is a video of my late brother Andrew and his 1972 Buick Skylark. Andrew was undergoing chemo at the time this video was shot so it was one of his last rides in the car. He had the car for 20 years and performed all sorts of modifications on it such as rebuilding the engine, converting the car to a five speed manual and toughening up the suspension. The car is a Buick 350, 4 bbl and five speed. Andrew passed away on December 31st, 2006. The music is from King Crimson.

1971 Buick GS, Low mileage car
This is a friends very low mileage 71 GS. Started life as a 350 car but in 2002 was morphed into a 455 car. He bought it from the northwest sight unseen in 2000 and was the proverbial little old ladies car. he has the origional bill of sale and the corresponding title paperwork aswell as the very first tags that were issued in California. The build sheets and al the other things that make the cars more desireable are there too. The underside of the car and the interior metal pieces look like the day the car was assembled in Fremont California. Again, In all my years of being into Buicks I have never seen a car this clean and original. It doea have one repaint and that leaves a lot to be desired but have you seen a car like this lately?





'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!

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • 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.





1972 Buick GS STK 1404
By now, everyone knows better than to mess with the big, bad, 455 GS Buicks, right? Bordering on insanely overpowered from the factory, a few bolt-on parts can turn these flying bricks into weapons that will leave Dodge Viper owners sobbing. Sinister in that bright red paint job, this well-restored, 700-mile car tells you all you need to know about Buick performance in the late �70s. Sure the shape of the body says conservative, but the way it�s dressed smacks you like a two-by-four to the back of the head. The N25 bumper package and with a hood tack and 3 piece spoiler makes the exclamation point. You just can�t miss these cars driving down the road, and by the time you�ve seen one, it�s already too late�you won�t catch it and the new stainless steel brakes will help keep it under control. On this particular car, the paint is in good condition all around with factory panel alignment. The red is glossy and deep, exactly the way you want it on one of these cruisers. There are a few touch-ups here and there�the car is, after all, 39 years old�but even with a numbers matching GS it�s clear that this car was never used as a daily driver. All the glass is good, and the seals are supple, suggesting that this car has been properly treated for its entire life. There are no signs of damage to the bumpers, no little nicks on the leading edge of the nose, and the flanks are thankfully free of parking lot door dings. This is a nice car that presents well, and you know how hard it is to make red look good! The engine on this car is 100% stock, except the original heads. In the car are T/A aluminum heads port and polished that add that little extra someth'n, someth'n when you mash the gas. With almost all of the original equipment still intact. Look at the pictures and you can see how well-maintained this car is. Everything is in very good condition and it�s obvious that this car has never seen snow. There�s not any additional flash under there, but it is 95% factory original and correct, which is probably a lot more important on a relatively rare car like this one. The 455 cubic inch motor is backed by the ultra-reliable T400 automatic, a transmission which has served honorably and faithfully behind these big block motors. Out back there�s a set of 3.42 gears in posi trac pumpkin, offering great off-the-line go and impressive high-speed cruising abilities. The stock black GS interior is just as impressive as the exterior. The dashboard is pure original. A set off Sunpro gauges mounted just below the radio helps keep tabs on the performance of thie monster under the hood. Regal, with the long, rectangular speedometer augmented by a small bar graph style tachometer and Boost gauge. The upholstery is in excellent condition with no excessive wear, and certainly no rips, tears, or stains anywhere. The headliner is perfect, the carpets look almost new, and the dashboard has no sign of cracking or sun damage. The A/C blows cold, the AM/FM stereo woks properly, and the car is ready for a summer�s worth of cruising and stop light grand prix. This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.

1972 Buick Skylark 455,
My 72 Skylark 350 sport coupe, I've had it about 10 or 11 years and I bought it from the original owners family after he had passed away. It used to be a grandfathers car now it's just an old guys toy. Soon after I bought it I installed a warmed up 350 and it ran real good. One day I wanted more so I built a .030 over 455 and that's when the trouble started. The original owners name Was Charley Daniels(no not that one)May he rest in peace because lord knows, When ever I start this thing up nobody rests in peace. Mwuh hah ha hah ha ha





Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."
