1969 Buick Special Deluxe Driving Video
This is my 1969 Buick Special Deluxe. I'm 16 and it's my first car and first love. It's a 3 in the tree (so pay attention to how fast I can shift) with a chevy 250 in it. All original. 155HP/235Ft-lbs. I bark the tires into second in the video a few times.
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!

1972 Buick Skylark
1972 Buick Skylark with a Hi-Compression Buick 350-4
I've had this car since October 8th 2010, I'm a senior in High School and it is my first car, my dad payed for half of it and I payed for the other half. I pay for the performance goodies that go into it and the occasional parts that break too. I love driving this old monster even though premium gas prices are outrageous but the rumble and roar of that massive V8 are well worth it. I take pride in this car and my dad and I do most of the work on it ourselves, it's somewhat of a father-son project. We've done nothing but make this car a heck of a lot better than it was when we got it. In the great words of GS Club of America, going fast with class, that's what these Buicks do.
Stock HP: 175hp (for 1972 Buick 350-4 8.5:1 compression)
Rear-wheel HP: 226hp @ 4326 RPM (should be a little higher with the Hyfire and Mallory coil)
Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher)
Net HP: approx. 260hp
Compression: 9.5:1 (not sure, but definitely higher than stock because without prem fuel I get spark knock with the correct fuel to air mixture)
Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip one)
Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with a shift kit for fun :D)
