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..
1969 Buick GS400. Burn that RUBBER!!
The big boy wanted to show off on this day, so I helped him. The BFG tires don't stand a chance and never did. Gobs of torque make this all too easy.
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!

Then i sent him on his way, and began playing with the th350. finally got it apart! now i can clean the frig out of it, and build it when i get some more time. i also started tearing down the np205. good thing i did too, cause she crapped out some needle bearings haha!

The car has 4-link suspension, ET Streets measuring 33/18/50. The 175-Shot of Nitrous rockets the INSANERACING.COM "Torque-Monster" Buick to an 8-second time in the 1/4-mile!!!
BUICK BIG-BLOCK TORQUE RULES!!!
Buick 350 in my 1975 Olds Omega salon
TA_284-88H-350 and twin walker turbo mufflers make her sound like a beast. Just have to find someone to rebuild and tune the stock carb.
Get rid of the pegleg diff and it will be time for some ricer kills.
Huge thanks to Tim @ TA Performance these guys make buick parts like no one else.
