We managed to get Brian’s 72 Buick GS to Norwalk for the Annual Buick Raceday and get some passes on it. On the dyno, it made 703 HP, full results here. We had a great first outing running three passes in the 10.60′s right out of the box. The engine has been dyno’d, but we hadn’t made any passes in the car, so we weren’t quite sure what to expect. We had some charging issues which plays hell with the MSD ignition boxes, and a big hesitation on launch, so overall we were very pleased with our first outing. I’m sure with some attention to detail, and getting issues straightened out, the car will run even better.
Overall, the Norwalk Buick Raceday is a great event, and it was nice to be able to put faces with all of the names of the Buick guys I have spoken to over the years. Roberta, Bill and crew do a great job putting this event on. If you have an opportunity, you should check it out. More info here: Buick Raceday: Facebook Page
