Does anyone still like to go fast with Buicks????????????????????? When I'm talking fast I'm not talking 9's which was fast in 1995!!!!!

I am putting my car up for sale again. I am building another one and slowly accumulating two of everything. I plan to have the car at Bowling Green and Norwalk and after that it is getting parted out. I want $45k for the car with the motor that is in it. I have invested over $15k in this car since last year. Whoever buys it is getting a hell of a deal on a car that would cost twice that to replicate and I have the receipts to prove it

The cars performance speaks for itself. This is a street car and is street driven regularly. The car is rather docile to drive and not nearly as radical as most think it would be despite the cars insane performance. Racing it on the street is reserved for the completely stupid or suicidal, it has way to much power to completely open up on the street but it is still fun to argue with old geezers at the car show about how fast it is:biggrin:

To all the Johnny come lately's on the board who seem to offer there opinions and market analysis on the economy and high value cars please keep your opinions to yourself and stay out of my thread unless you have a genuine interest in the car. I have owned one of these cars since 1989, have attend most every major Buick event since 1996 and have been racing the HU Buick classes since 1998. There are few cars that this one compares and it is very rare to see one for sale.

I just fired the new motor up this weekend and plan to take all new pics this week. I had the paint touched up this winter and put new better fitting fiberglass bumpers on so the car really looks good now and has almost no flaws in the paint and arrow straight body.

Car is for sale as roller without parts listed above for $15,000. Car will fit most Buick HU (TSM, TSL,TSO) classes and has provisions to put stock style rear springs and shocks back on if rear coilovers are not allowed. It is a well proven chassis and 60's in the high 1.20's on drag radials pretty consistantly. I will be selling the roller with the 28x10.5 stiff sidewall slicks. The paint and body are arrow straight and could be proudly displayed in a show. I just had it freshened up this winter adn a bunch of little problems with it fixed. I even replaced the fiberglass bumpers with better fitting ones and got rid of the POS Danko crap that was on there. Interior is mostly stock appearing and in excellent shape. The car only has 34k miles and is very very clean. The windshield is new and it has a new 1 pieces ABS headliner in it that was put in last year so there are no worries about it sagging or falling down with the roll cage.

This car has been a labor of love and I will miss it when it is gone but I am wanting to go Outlaw drag radial racing and would have to really cut this car up in order to be competitive. My other car is now a rolling chassis and i really need to make room. I will entertain trades but absolutley NOT looking for any race cars or projects. Low mile unmodified TTA, GN's GNX's 2008 or newer SUV's or a 2009 Cadilliac CTS-V I am willing to trade up.
Bump for a nice guy and an awesome car! Wish I had the money Chris, but my wife says I can't use my retirement! I"ll see you in BG, if your going. Phil.

This is not directed at the last post, this is a post being made by me just saying please if your not seriously interested in Chris's car just do not comment.

This beautiful piece was offered here last summer and so many people made comments not even remotely relevant to the actual sale of the car.

So out of common curtousy please do not trash the thread,

Thanks in advance,

Rare opportunity to own a severely BAD A$$ car! Good luck trying to build one like it for that price. Good luck on the sale brother!
this car is no joke. Its looks the part, race and show and built with only the best parts. Chris doesnt waste any time. Good luck,
Car is sold!! New owner is picking it next Sat. It is staying together and going to a good home. Motor #2 also has a deal pending.

Coming soon to an ODR race near you:eek:
