Hi guys, Wanted to introduce myself,my name is John Lipori and I have purchased the only funny car my dad Jerry ever constructed in his shop Brooklyn Speed & Machine in NY after a long string of successful AA/GD dragsters. Steve Malise who owned Mid-County Buick in Brooklyn drove the dragsters and also sponsored this car run under the NY Buick Dealers Group banner. Ron Pellegrini constructed only two '67 Buick Skylark bodies ever know to exist and he drove the other car which was Chrysler Hemi-powered named "Super Bird" which was later destroyed in an on-track incident. This particular car is the world's only Buick-powered Buick Funny Car ever created and featured some very colorful drivers including original driver Bruce Bohan then "Coney Island" Ralph Landolphi and finally "Rapid Red" Lang who converted the car to 392 Hemi power. I have been chasing this car down for years and now with tears in my eyes am happy to finally reunite this great piece of Buick history with my dad who is 78 and lives nearby. I don't have the car yet but will receive it early next month. Here are a few pictures of the car as it was raced way back when...this first picture is from Englishtown '68: Fresh out of Brooklyn Speed & Machine...probably seeing the light of day for the first time! 430 Wildcat power with an 8:71 blower: Car ran a best of 7.79 @ 191mph...looks downright scary!
