Favorite Pictures of My Performance Buick

Recommended Posts

We all like pictures! Sooooo

 

This thread is for posting pictures of YOUR Performance Buicks. Just pictures and a brief description. It will help us all know who has what and sort of put a car to a person so to speak.

 

So let's see them! and who knows, maybe your car will end up featured in a calendar some day.

Maybe not as fast as some, but my 65 Riviera is definitely an iron fist in a velvet glove.

Just finished the restoration that had to be pulled from the first shop. Thank you to John Csordas and the crew at The Auto Center in Chappaqua N.Y. for making it right. 1973 Century Gran Sport 4 speed. Most optioned. 1 of 92 built. Looking forward to bringing it hopefully to the BCA Nats.

I gotta tell y’all about a very fun looking 66 Special wagon that was racing here in Oregon bout 20 some years ago. Had a later 455 out of some zillion mile big wagon mildly modded with some mild nitrous going to it. Was always fun to watch cause he would lift the front 2 feet and carry it through first gear. Ran somewhere in low 10s. One day he showed up with a big nitrous kit, first run had the thing scraping the back bumper! In his next run which happened to be me(S/G 71Duster 9.70 dial) I had to give him about half second head start,he launched scraped his back bumper again, I launched and barely got moving and KABOOM!!!!! I saw the crank come out the bottom of his car and he ran over it! What a fireball! I pulled over to my left and eased to the end.I went over to look at his car in the pits and there was total destruction! Next weekend his car was fixed with a stock 71 shortblock for $75 but had lower miles so he figured, good to go. Still in the 10s and still scraping the back bumper. I was impressed.

Not as fast as the later models but here are our 65 and 66 Gran Sports. Both have been on the Hot Rod Power Tour.

That 65 is NICE! What wheels are those; got a white with black vinyl top 65 Riviera, and I am thinking about some wheels similar to these, but more or less in a standard size; nothing crazy.

The wheels on the 65 are 17” Cragars. First time ever for me to buy wheels over 15”, but glad I did. I like them on there although I wouldn’t go larger. That’s a great looking Riv!
