BlackieSue's drive invasion intervention....
This is us on the way to Drive Invasion 2010 in my 1968 Buick skylark
"Blackiesue" which has spent four years avoiding this event by not running
and missing schedules etc.
Here we see one final attempt by THE CAR at not going to have a fun time ,
and how we dealt with it .
The car stalled in the middle of the road and stripped the starter ,
luckily the parts store I use was two blocks away .
1969 Buick Special Deluxe (Skylark/GS Base Model)
This is my 69 Buick Special Deluxe (which is actually pretty hard to find
now-a-days. They're mostly Skylarks and GSs now) I got a little over a week
ago. Got it for $2500. Its in fantastic condition for being non-restored
for 41 years. Got a 250ci Chevy Straight-6 (the smallest engine you could
get on the car at the time) and a 3 speed stick on the tree. I love this
car so much!
Mild Buick 350
Same 69 Skylark as my previous video. This was shot after I drove the car
from Texas to Michigan, about 1,400 miles one way. TH350 trans I put in it
burned up a week after this video. Since then it's been rebuilt and
re-installed, only to have the rear spider gears blow apart when I romped
on the gas during the transmissions test drive. Few minor improvements..
rear air shocks, timing adjust, etc..
JOHNNYLARK'S Stage-1 Buick 455 Skylark with "TA286-08H" Camshaft & 1.6 Rockers!!! 5-30-2013
This was a COOL DAY! I finally met "Johnnylark" of V8buick.com at the Home
Depot Parking Lot MUSCLE CAR MEET.
YOU MUST SEE THE "entrance" Johnnylark made with this Buick 455 Stage-1
Skylark's TA PERFORMANCE "286-08H" cam CHOPPING like crazy accompanied by
his TA PERFORMANCE 1.6 ROCKERS!
Johnny & his COOL son "John" made my day. In the video I recorded prior to
this one ... I stated that there's NO Buick Muscle Cars attending ... and
felt disappointed until I heard ... we ALL heard this Buick 455 Stage-1
This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal
(currently at the Dyno
The guy in the white wife-beater suggesting that Johnny "reverse it in,"
actually stated a few seconds before that ... "A car like THIS shouldn't be
over there by itself." Classic!
JOHNNY IS THE COOLEST!!!
