Beastly Buick

Buick might be best known for making miserable floaty nonsense for old people to drive around Florida, or more recently cars for China, which would probably finish a few Buick drivers off if they knew about it, but the brand has occasionally built an interesting car.

Back in the early ’70s everyone was having a go at muscle cars, even Buick, who chucked a larger engine, trunk spoiler, lurid paint, and a hood-mounted tachometer (why?!) on their Skylark coupe to create the GSX.

This most excellent Lego replica of the Buick GSX (in ‘limemist green’) is the work of Ralph Savelsberg aka Mad Physicist of Flickr who has recreated the lesser-known muscle car superbly in his trademark style. Head to Ralph’s photostream via the link above for the complete gallery and you can read his interview as part of TLCB’s Master MOCers series by clicking here.
