  1. Great to see and hear that you and the Faithfull Persuit are still doing well and kicking! Merry christmas BqUICK!
  2. BqUICK, did you use a console when you did the hurst shifter conversion?
  3. That's a real bummer. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> I hope your buddy has a 100% recovery. I think the fact that he has so many people think enough, and that care about him would be more willing for him to recover.
  4. Major congradulations to both men!!!! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Absolutely fantastic!!
  5. Now there is some serious muscle, definately a real man's machine <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />! Winter can be a real bummer, especially in the climates both you and I live in. But that's when some have alot more inventive thinking for upgrades and improvement which I'm sure you do all the time anyway. From what I see in the performance car hobby there are ALOT more big cars being built nowadays simply because it's becoming the cool thing to do. I think it is. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
  6. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> The GSX was the obvious choice as it was third only to the '66 427 Cobra and '67 427 Vette in straight line 1/4 mile. Cars with similar weight and the same 427's were no match for the brutal torque of the Buick 455 STAGE 1. </div></div> BqUICK, you're absolutly correct! As much as muscle car enthusiast of other brands may contest this, 455 STAGE 1 powered cars were the most understated and underated cars on the muscle era. Here's a vid link I found while surfing the web from the popular speed channel program Musclecar: http://media.putfile.com/Muscle-Car-Flashback---1970-Buick-GSX-Stage-1 ENJOY!!
  7. Oh yes I enjoyed the poem! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> You're absolutely right about the Electra's being tough, or buicks in general. I remember from going to demo derbys in my youth of how the 57-58 buicks were outlawed because the sheet metal was WAY to thick <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/ooo.gif" alt="" /> to give other automobiles a competetive chance. So a 430 is in the works, another great Buick motor! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
  8. BqUICK, thanks for the links and the photos on the Tuskegee Airmen. It's extremely great that they are getting even more recognition by congress for their highly successful contribution to this countrys success in the war! The photo of the Faithful Persuit at the air base looks soo in fitting! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
  9. Fantastic pictues!! Scotty's new shop wouldn't happen to be located in Orlando would it?
  10. I'm very sorry to hear of this. May he rest in peace.
  11. Wow convertible top rain sensors in 1951! My brother and I were talking a while back about how quickly automotive and aerospace/aviation technology has advanced in the last 100 years. It's mind bogling to say the least. But just like with your faithfull persuit it had to start with a dream, a concept, then ALOT of hard work to become reality. When I look at photo's of cars like the Buick Star Buster for the time they were created I just think, man there really is no limit to the imagination, and creativity of the human mind. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> Another thing that makes me wonder is in 1970 Buick started their stage3 development when they cast a handfull of 4 bolt main blocks but then abandoned the project when musclecars died off. Where would factory Buick performance have ended up?
  12. WOW! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> And you didn't even have your road race suspension setup!!! You are very hot on your performance goals, I would have loved to see peoples reaction to the "Big Buick" <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> navigating around the coarse so succesfully especially considering that Electras never originally had a reputation for slolom road coarse handling! That is truly amazing!
  13. BqUICK, are you going to drag test Faithful Pursuit with your high speed 3.33 ratio grears? Gorgeous pictures of Faithful Pursuit <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />, any possibility to post a video?
  14. Sorry to be on the late show but, YEA BABY! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> With more seat time and practice you'll get it knocked down to 12.50!
  15. Just got my Tuskege Airmen Wings of Eagles T-shirt today! Fits like a glove and looks Fantastic! Well worth the money! Bquick, you've done a great job on the design!
