Clean 1995 Buick Riviera
Showing my Riviera and what I've done to it so far. I'm not planning on
getting too crazy with it, probably some chrome 20" 100 spoke wire wheels
and probably replace the interior lights with some green LED's.
1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.
1996 Buick Riviera (Supercharged 3.8 V6)
This is an amazing nice car, we bought it in Arizona in 2001, and have had
it ever since with absolutely NO problems. It has some small dings in the
doors from inconsiderate people in parking lots and the chrome wheels are
beginning to flake severely, but looks fantastic for a 13 year old car in

Last Drive in my 1999 Buick Regal GS [Part 2 of 2]
Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6wAV4HWL8A
My first car was a 1999 Regal GS. Powered by a supercharged 3.8L V6, the
Regal was capable of speeds that Buick's target audience don't know exist.
It had 240 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs of
torque. With an obscenely flat torque curve that peaks at 2400 rpm, off the
line it was one mean burgundy machine. Only a slight twitch of my leg
transformed the Regal from a cloud nine geriatric ride to an angry
supercharged rhinocerous- with an appetite for Japanese cars with oversized
spoilers, soup-can Exhausts, and
non-functional hood scoops.
A car that defined the term 'sleeper', the Regal would particularly enjoy
courting Honda Preludes, Civic Si's, or Mitsubishi Eclipses. After luring
its prey into what initially appears like an opportune chance to exhibit
their sweet stickers, the Regal would spring its trap. Its Eaton M90 Supercharger would be unleashed, packing
the six cylinders with 27.4 psi of Boost; meanwhile, the drivetrain would give
its best effort toward the futile endeavor of maintaining traction as the
Regal would rocket past its imported competition. Such defeats would be
expected to leave the Honda driver in a state of confusion, so fortunately
the margin of victory would allow enough time for him to close his mouth
and consider the embarrassment at exactly how much he spent on his
unpainted body kit.
I never lost a race in that car. Except when the opponent had blue and red
lights on top.
The GS was commonly seen around Spartanburg, SC demonstrating her artistic
side. One of her oft-repeated performances was a painting of twin streaks
of Michelin residue against a backdrop of smoky clouds of rubber-based
particulate matter, set to the tune of a high-pitched whine eminating from
twin helical screws.
Anyway, all good things must come to an end. I was graduating high school,
and moving on to college. My father decided to trade it in, and no, I won't
sully the Regal's good name by revealing what it was traded in for.
Plain and simple: this video presents my final drive in the Regal GS. Man,
I loved that car.
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.
Under Hood 3800 Supercharged V6 in '98 Buick Riviera
Captured this video under the hood while driving my Riviera. Always
wondered how the belts and tensioners were acting at high RPM. Before
anyone asks - no, the car isn't in need of new engine mounts. Front and
rear mounts have been replaced recently with resin-filled versions. What
you're seeing is the result of 370 lb-ft of torque being multiplied and
sent to the wheels in 1st gear. Inside the car if feels like the engine is
hard-mounted to the chassis! Not quite, but firm enough for a daily driver.
1995 Buick Riviera Transmission swap pt. 1
Swapping the tranny in the Riv I just bought. The subframe is a 1 piece
deal so I am going to pull the engine out of the top, instead of dropping
it like I normally would. I also have to change a few things, water
pump, and put a new rattler coupler in the blower.
1997 Buick Riviera Supercharged
I have had my Riviera now for 6 years, by far one of the best cars that I
have owned. Stylish, comfort, and has the sleek looks...along with the 3800
engine and Supercharger.
