    She lives!

    She lives! Just a light 30% load of nitro to break in the cam,lol! Still pig-fat based on how Mike Kuhl set up the injector, still working on the tune-up so certainly a work in progress but wow, with dad in the seat to witness this car making noise for the first time in over 47 years...lot's of emotion going on...won't lie.

    A big thanks to John Everett, Jim Weise, Kurt Peterson, Greg Edmundson, Mike & Sherri @ TA Performance, Bruce Dyda, Alky Digger, Good Vibrations and everyone here and in the Buick community that helped make this dream a reality...I cannot begin to tell you what this means to me.

    Here's a link to the weekend's activities here at Laguna Seca...

    She's never going down track under her own power again Bob, waay too many changes would need to be made to be legal, but she lives again after 47 years silent as a cackle car!

    they don't ever do any nostalgia nights?

    or you just don't want to go that fast in a car with 1960s safety tech?


    you going to do any burnouts?

    Cackle car only Bob...non-coupled drivetrain...and never will be.

    Think about it closely...50 year-old previously chromed components being pushed again to the extreme...NOT with what I have invested in this piece of history.
