Killer time!  Nice GT500 and Cobra. :023:


Do it Dan, get a GT500!  Can't go wrong with almost 800hp stock and all the supporting equipment.

I love  my Buicks and they are not for sale.  They were unique to the era and still stand out.

But, first, I am a car guy.  I love cars and I am not brand loyal.  I love cars from all generations.  If I win the Powerball, Jay Leno can move over LOL

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Looks like a 71 a body on the lift. Pretty sure it is a Buick.

on the rack is 72  skylark,  GSX clone,   forged piston 455, lotta  head work,  lumpy cam,  2004r,  
other car is 57 chevy  383, 2004r,  etc
gt500 was a no brainer, as buddy was going to trade it in,  so I gave him the same amount, 
been  driving it,  BIG blower,( whipple 2.9) inj   dual pass intercooler, 16 lbs boost,  playing with the tune, 
1st dyno  test was 675 rear wheel HP,  then  upped the fuel, and timing , was WELL  over 700!
traction is non existent,  more  so then any buick i've owned.,
