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.
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?
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.
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
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
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

1980 Buick Skylark Dealer Demo
This is form a 1979 promotional LaserDisc that I found it is for 1980 model
At the beginning of this disc you will hear some audio tones, these where
used to program the PR-7800 LaserDisc player, and you will also see single
frames of what is on the entire disc as well as still pictures of each
model of Buick available that year
This WAS the first interactive video experience, the on board CPU in the
PR-7800 allowed you to program the viewing and interact with the disc using
the remote control. The PR-7800 was intorduced 3 years before the IBM PC-XT
In 1978 GM contracted with Pioneer and MCA/DiscoVision to put the Pioneer
PR-7800 LaserDisc player into its dealerships, the discs where to be used
for demonstrations as in this disc or for training purposes.
Now in the early days of laserDisc manufacture there was a very high
failure rate, sometimes as high as 85% during the mastering/pressing
process, so that left a lot of sides of discs that where unusable. Well
these where used to fill the blank side of a disc, the "dead" side was then
coated with a special plastic that was clear to the human eye, but it would
not reflect the laser beam, thus the side would not play. Well the coating
can be removed with rubbing alcohol, which is what I did.
These reject discs will ONLY play on the older style of laserDisc player
that uses a laser tube
