Looks good Gary. Clean and neat. I like it.
Who is dynoing it?
Damn Gary she looks hot, can't wait to see it in action, kudos on seeing the project thru, lot of guys have no idea the sacrifices that are made to put stuff like this together
Thanks guys....I'm pretty bummed that it didn't go down the track this year. I'd still like to get it on the dyno sooner than later. (Not sure where yet,Shawn)
Then I'll take all winter to make sure the car is ready to go a little faster
It's safe to say over 1k is the goal I assume?
Yes ... I'm hoping for an 8-second car no matter the weather conditions
Hell's yea you on DR's ? Or gonna try them?
It's on a Pro Bracket Radial slick now. I was going to try a set of 275Pros (1/8 mile) for the sake of being a filler car in Ultra Street
How bout some car pics as it sits. It looks like you have upgraded the Cut Up Buick!! Dont hold out on us!
Gary someday I'm going to invite my self over to look at that thing before it gets all buttoned up.
Tubular core support now, Removable front clip, and further weight reduction without taking away from the look.
Hoping to hit the starting at 3150-3200 lbs.
Buick Performance is finally gonna get respect here soon fellas if builds of this caliber become more the norm we will have arrived! Love the details Gary fit and finish are outstanding
I'm planning to do a removable front steel clip myself ,..maybe stealing a few ideas sorry,...
No apology needed. Let me know if you need to see anything specific when you get into it.
Looks good Gary. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the front end. We're keeping steel fenders but still want to make pulling the front end easier.
Your work is top notch as usual.
I'm really liking the integrated midmount
Looks sweet, I like steel rod replacement for the coil overs. Great way to keep the car up till you get it all together as scaled to know what springs are actually needed
Looks Awesome Gary.
I gotta tell ya Gary, when. I heard what you were up to I expected it was going to be badass. But as usual you have pushed it beyond even that. I for one am always in awe of your ability to push the bar even higher. Please let me know when the first test hits will happen. Keep in mind the local machine shop here has their dyno set up for Buicks as they did Rich motor.
