This beautiful 1961 Buick Skylark belongs to Royce, who is also the man who build this custom car at his home. It’s  388 ci SBC engine with a th400 w/Gear Vendor transmission. That giant thing sticking off the top of the engine? Oh, thats a 8-71 Hampton Blower.

    My husband did a 62 with a full drivetrain out of an 86 GN. It’s a baby GN. Full Buick all the way!

    My first car was a 68 Skylark in the burg. So I got a thing for Skylarks lol. However this one makes me think about fuel everytime it breaths. lmao

    A guy on our block had a 4726 hemi in his street race car. When he wrecked the car, he put it in his moms old Lancer-(Valiant). He would see other cars and tell folks “I bet I could beat that with my mom’s Valiant”.
