All I can say is... WOW, what a video, that was fantastic. Brings chills to me. Buddy really shook the racing world with his performance. Imagine a 268ci motor against a 700 plus cubic inch monster in 1986!!!! He really was the man of the turbo Buick world!!!! Hats off to Buddy!!!

I love the way Bob Glidden says "the turbo just didn't have enough stuff" at the end. What about less than half the cubes?

11.3@123mph on 195/75/14" whitewalls. Yes, 195s!
11.2 on the big giant slicks. What's the point? Maybe I'll go back to the whitewalls. They are lighter and have less rolling resistance.

Agreed - great stuff. I really need a track fix or maybe I really need a new job that allows me the opportunity for a track fix,,,,

Glidden and Ford were visably shaken from Buddy's performance during the mid 80's. So much so, that they regulated Buddy right out of Pro-Stock. Even today, we're not really understood by most racers-.
