Great. I love the 84-85 turbos.
There aren't many members here with knowledge about those years, but you'll find some help over at turbobuicks.com.

I hope you have a parts car...

Turbo Buicks are nothing new for me. Brian Cotton is a very good friend of mine, I actually purchased teh car from his father Jack...

Ok,

I did the dumb thing and should have posted here originally (hence why the posts were edited and moved smile sry admin)

I guess I will introduce myself a little better.

Name is Brandon Furches and I am a tech for Balise Toyota Scion in West Springfield, MA. For the past years I have been building performance Scions at the dealership for our customers as well as the most competitive regional cars.

I have been around Turbo Buicks for a few years now, and just decided to start working on my own and jump into the scene.

I hope I can be of assistance to all of you.
I will also post some pictures of the Scions I have built in the showroom for anyone who is interested.

Thanks for looking smile

Hey Welcome again! Good intro!

Look up our LVD drag day in the meets and events section. It's close to you. I'm not sure what we'll do if we don't get enough people signed up, I think it becomes an open-to-the-public day... but it would be great to meet up.

Are you familiar with the NEBRA crew? (New England Buick Racing Association)
