9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140
We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at
the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also
the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9's at the time.Thanks to
Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been
taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to
bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our
shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new
powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the
engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and
get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138
hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the
5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing
adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle
the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool
but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to
straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We're sure it'll
go into the 9.40's yet and maybe even 30's after everything is worked out.

Late-Model Camaro Z28
messing around with a classic 455 powered GTO... The GTO jams it and then
one of the passengers thought they were being tailed by an undercover B4C
Camaro holding a radar
gun (video camera, lol)... you can see the nervous, unsure look on his face
as we roll beside... then the total relief once he recognized an old friend
behind the wheel...lol.
This was shot many years ago with an old analog camera, so apologize for
the poor quality...

1963 Buick Riviera - 445 Wildcat Nailhead V8 - Luxury and Muscle Car Combined
This classic 63 Buick Riviera is packing the 445 Wildcat V8 under the hood.
This engine is a version of the famed 401 Buick Nailhead engine and it
derives it's name from the fact that it puts out 445 Lb/ft of Torque. In
this single four barrel configuration, it also has about 325 HP. This car
offers a combination of luxury and power in one package. This particular
car is almost completely original with the exception of a repaint at some
point. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching.
