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.

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside
Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand
National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are
identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you
stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which
I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking
buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing
performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience
to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we
will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with
the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data,
and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior
and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only
get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will
highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any
available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video
without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.

On this bonus episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, it's the return of our '66
Buick Special convertible. In episode 5, we showed you how this car had
been abandoned in an Arizona backyard for 33 years with the top down.
Freiburger and Finnegan flew into town, got the car running with the help
of Rick Pewe from 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine, and drove it home to Los
Angeles. Watch that original episode here:
The car proved to be a ton of fun, so now we are turning it into a daily

What happens when you buy an award winning muscle car from RK Motors
Charlotte and then sink another $20K into it? You get a spectacular looking
street machine that will run with the best modern performance cars on the
Painted in an awesome coat of Lexus Ruby Red Pearl, this car exhibits $30K
of expert bodywork that perfectly emphasizes its natural curves and shapes.
The Ruby Red Pearl is one of those colors that seems to change as you move
around it and tends to run the spectrum from bright red to almost black.
Naturally, if you use a color like this, the bodywork had better be top
notch. If it's not, you'll be able to see every little wave and ripple
which will quickly turn a great idea into a horrible embarrassment.
Fortunately, the guys who put this one together were on top of things. The
body is uniformly excellent throughout and the car presents better than it
did straight off the factory floor.
Under the hood, a proven Chevrolet 350 GM crate motor has received
substantial upgrades and now Dynos at 410 horsepower. Air and fuel are
supplied by a chrome breather that holds a reusable filter element and a
new Holley carburetor that's fed by an Edelbrock fuel pump and operated by
a Lokar throttle cable. Below that carburetor, a chrome intake manifold
sits between two new Edelbrock aluminum heads that feature new roller
rockers and chrome valve covers and tie downs that feature the same
"Chevrolet" script as the air cleaner. Below the intake, a new Competition
Camshaft opens and closes the valves while ceramic coated Hedman headers
make quick work of the Exhaust.
Ignition is handled by a new American Autowire harness that sends power to
a Mallory HEI distributor which is topped with 8mm MSD Super Conductor
wires. Cooling is handled by a Be Cool aluminum radiator that is equipped
with polished flex hoses, a billet overflow tank and a pair of electric
Behind the motor the cars modern 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission now
benefits from both a new B&M shift kit and SuperCooler, and the cars tried
and true 10 bolt rear end still holds highway friendly 3.31 gears. A
Detroit Speed 'Speed 2' kit was purchased which includes tubular upper and
lower control arms for the car's double A-arm front suspension, forged 2
inch drop spindles, four aluminum bodied shock absorbers with Detroit Speed
specific valving, tuned coil over springs that provide ride height
adjustment, and front and rear sway bars. Up front, a new stainless power
steering pump feeds a new steering box through braided hoses and out back,
the car was further enhanced by a swivel link rear suspension and chassis
brace. Braking is provided by a complete Wilwood system that includes four
piston calipers, braided hoses, new stainless brake lines and 12 inch cross
drilled rotors, and Exhaust flows from
the long tube headers to dual chambered Flowmaster mufflers and exits
through stainless tips under the rear quarters. Keeping the car attached to
the ground is a set of sticky 235/45 Nitto Extreme ZR radials that are
mounted to gorgeous 17 inch Boyd Coddington wheels.
The interior of this car will absolutely blow you away! The custom blend of
top quality two-tone fawn leather and classic 1965 Chevrolet design is
nothing short of amazing. The Ididit polished steering column still sports
a traditional column shifter and the custom steering wheel design matches
the road wheels exactly. Dakota Digital gauges have been nestled into the
original dashboard next to controls for a Vintage Air HVAC system and an
upgraded Custom Autosound radio with a trunk-mounted CD changer. In the
kick panels you'll find great sounding Custom Autosound speakers, and in
the package tray you'll find two awesome 6x9 Alpines. The door panels,
headliner and carpet have all been custom sewn to match the original
equipment, just with an updated color palette, and a set of slick billet
pedals has been installed to match the Ididit column.
If you're in the market for a powerful, well-sorted muscle car that is
spectacular in every way, this awesome Chevrolet should be at the top of
