  1. Re: Turkey Run car show in Daytona FL Nov 22-25 ---- Roll Call

    Had a great time today; rode down with Dave Butts and my daughter Kira. I'm not sure who I met as far as user names on here (I'm lousy with names anyway!) but it was good to meet a bunch of the...
  2. Re: 1973 Century -- Good looking daily driver -- $3900

    Looks like it's sold to a local young guy. I tried to convince him he'd be better off buying a 10 year old Toyota for his first car, but he's determined. :pp He's a pretty smart kid and I'm going...
  3. Re: 1973 Century -- Good looking daily driver -- $3900

    I don't see why not..that would certainly be the longest drive it's done in at least a few years but it's a good reliable driver. The only reservation I would have might be the tires. I do not have...
  4. 1973 Century -- Good looking daily driver -- $3900

    I'm going to be lazy here and just put the link to my local Craigslist ad, which has info and pictures.

    That thing is really, really cool! Enjoy it and drive the wheels off it. :)
  6. Re: Unauthorized video of a car that looks like mine.

    The best story of the night is the one behind those 15" wide stripes in the road. We'd already made some noise coming into the yard, and were standing around when we heard a healthy sounding motor...
  7. Re: Running 455 engine to swap for gs 350 engine with 350 transmission

    I have a 455 that I'd happily trade, but it's not running. It's missing an intake manifold, I pulled it from a local yard when I was thinking about building a big block for my 73. If you're going...

    Re: Still looking for a 73 Century

    I am planning to sell my 73; I just bought (another) Regal and something's got to go. I am in the middle of swapping an A/C heater core and plenum into it, so I need some time to put the dash back...
  9. Re: Picked up some cool 350 Buick parts today..

    The block code is "TO", so it looks like you're right. I Googled that and came up with an 8.5:1 compression 71 350 motor. That will actually make a great starting point for the turbo setup, if it's...
  10. Re: Picked up some cool 350 Buick parts today..

    It is supposed to be a 96k mile 70 motor that was running when pulled. I have a 73 350 sitting in the car right now and I'm gathering parts to build it; I may put this one in the car for initial...
  11. Picked up some cool 350 Buick parts today..

    Found this on Craigslist and drove down to Palm Coast today and bought it. I am working on a 350 based, single turbo, EFI build for my 83 T-type. The previous owner of this motor was planning...

    Cowl vent on 73 Century with A/C?

    I'm putting A/C in an original non-A/C 73 Century. It had a cowl vent with a cable actuated door; this fed the center vents in the dash. The A/C setup has a duct from the A/C plenum for this vent,...

    Re: 455 Rebuild-How Can I do It cheaper?

    I'm in the "hone it and run it" crowd. I have gotten a ton of street miles out of engines with factory machine work and a garage reassembly. My current 73 Century is running around on an original...

    Re: 74 Century GS w/42k original in FL $3900

    What's funny is that I would probably be money ahead buying this car and painting it compared to what I've spent on my 73. I like the 73 but I'll never get anything close to what I've spent on it if...

    Re: 65 Marlin $1100 obo Spokane

    I would like to see one done up with big inch rims, a two tone paint job..something like Troy Trepanier or Steve Strope would turn out. I'd probably ditch the AMC motor and put an LS motor in it,...
  16. Re: 78-80 Regal Dash Gauges, Stainless Fuel Tank.

    John, I'll take it; I'll PM you for Paypal or other payment info.

    Thanks!
  17. Re: 78-80 Regal Dash Gauges, Stainless Fuel Tank.

    Very interested in the tank, if you think it would fit in a 83 Regal. I think, but I'm not sure, that they should be similar. I have a brand new Spectra tank that I was planning to sump, but this...

    Re: Engine integrity with a Turbo Charger

    The 4 bbl style throttle bodies bolt on nicely but they're harder to make a nice tubing connection from an intercooler. I don't like the hats that bolt down with the carb stud. That's the reason...

    Re: Engine integrity with a Turbo Charger

    There aren't any kits, or EFI intakes, if that's what you're asking. I have two Poston intakes (I have a couple of 350s) and I'm going to put injector bungs in them and mill the center divider out...

    Re: Engine integrity with a Turbo Charger

    I have been reluctant to mention it thus far, but I am currently working on an EFI turbo 350 Buick that I want to be a street car. My goal is to model the build after a mild GN motor; just with two...

    Re: 73 Century A/C ducts and parts

    What's "the part that goes under the dash above your feet"? Any chance it's the ductwork to the center dash vents? See the first two pics and description above..

    I actually got the blend control...

    Choke well sheetmetal piece wanted

    I need the little "choke well" (I think that's what it's called!) and possibly the linkage piece for a factory 350 4 bbl manifold. Here's a pic to show where it goes:
