9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140

We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9’s at the time.Thanks to Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138 hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the 5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We’re sure it’ll go into the 9.40’s yet and maybe even 30’s after everything is worked out.

Still have not tracked down the car it goes to

Kind of look like they'd go on the back of a mid to later 70s Dodge Diplomat.

Close No cut out on these for the bumper like this one has

Most of the fords had a flat rubber strip?? I’m thinking mopar , satellite or cuda class

A early 70s model. Maybe a ford maverick or a Plymouth duster? Hard to tell

71 Plymouth satellite.

First thought, but naw...

On the car, am sure of it.

Ford Pinto maybe. Though those old Challengers had similar guards like that.

Keep it chunk the ruler!! Blue all ready!!

Could be a vw bug 60s 70s

Ford 250 pickup push guard

I got it a car right

1949 ford 2 door coupe

Looks like it's for an early squarebody gm truck

Who cares , ruler is a keeper though . Vote RED across the board .

70s VW Beetle??

How about a Dodge Dart?

No markings on it anywhere?

a car

1978 Ford LTD

Square body's had those too

Truck?

Camero split bumper

Can we not do car stuff w/o the political stuff?
