1973 Buick apollo thats gonna get an olds 462 that was going into my 75 olds omega. The olds is now sold so I guess this will be my new street car project. Its a rolling chassis now but the body is solid and rust free.
2007 Charger R/T muffler delete interior sound
A few people have asked for interior sound of my charger with a deleted or
removed muffler but resonators were kept on. Here it is, sorry it took so
long. Only other modification is a cold air intake that I made by basically
removing the filter box and sticking a cone filter in its place at the end
of the intake tubing.
1973 OLDSMOBILE OMEGA -- CLONED FROM THE CHEVY NOVA
In 1973 GM had the bright idea of utilizing the Chevy Nova chassis and body
for the new compact Buick Apollo and the Oldsmobile Omega. Both clones
look like a Chevy Nova except different front and rear end treatments. Of
course both of these clones like the Chevy Nova were at the bottom rung of
all three divisions. All three compacts came in a hatchback coupe, coupe
and 4 door sedan. This coupe is one of 26,126 made and had a price tag of
$2,613. Engines for the Omega were a L-head 6 with 250 cid and 100 bhp.,
and a V8, 350 cid with 180 horses. GM market share kept climbing, reaching
just over 52% of the domestic industry. The Omega replaced the final year
of the Olds F-85 which only came in a four door model and only 3,792 were
made for it's last year. While the Buick Apollo sales faltered, the Olds
Omega continued on through the 1984 model year and then replaced by the
Olds Firenza. All three compacts could be dressed up with a vinyl roof and
some power accessories. This example is hardly seen anymore and is in
excellent condition. My guess is that is was an one owner car most of it's
life and always maintained and garaged. I hope you enjoy this first year
clone, the 1973 Oldsmobile Omega and thanks very much for viewing.
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.
