The Super C, not many like her around...
At first glance, this car looks like any other 86 Buick Century. That's how I like it to be.
What you can't see is what makes it so unique. The car was bought as a replacement for an older Century I wrecked, and I decided to put to use an old Rajay turbocharger I had laying around. This was the first turbo system for this car, and the first turbo system I had built. The result was a drivable, reliable car capable of 130 MPH, and 0-60 in under 8 seconds.
I have made numerous modifications, and documented many of them with pictures. Follow the links below see more about this car and it's engine.

People have said I need to do a sound file of this car's engine. So I did one today, and it turned out okay. I had to "hold back" a little bit because it was raining. I didn't want wheelspin.
The file has 2 parts. The first was recorded with the microphone held out the drivers door below the car. I cranked up the engine, and revved it to give an idea of exhaust note. It the very beginning of the sound, you can hear the dual electric fuel pumps start a split second before the engine cranks up.
The second part is the actual acceleration. I had the microphone stuck in the dome light suspended in the passenger compartment for this one. I came to a stop, than accelerated as fast as I could without wheelspin. The loud clinking is from a bottle and flashlight on the floorboard. (sorry...)
