Read below for car descriptions!
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences with them.
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny. No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track. Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower (stock)
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the 2011 v6
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8'' pulley (14psi) and ethanol.
374whp with same mods as vs the blown GT
As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!

1987 Buick Grand National VS 2010 V6 Chevy Camaro 1/4 Mile run 2010
Been working on my GN with my friends for the past two years and decided to give her a run for the first time at a local cruise night. Not being at the track in years I didn't know where to stage and didn't have time to build Boost...but 12.1 in 1/4 is a good start. It's a 1987 Buick Grand National with 26k original miles with stock motor and a few bolt on. The paint and interior are all stock.

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world, presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960 Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new, exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's Seat of YouTube!

Last Drive in my 1999 Buick Regal GS [Part 1 of 2]
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxzX1mqCD6g
My first car was a 1999 Regal GS. Powered by a supercharged 3.8L V6, the Regal was capable of speeds that Buick's target audience don't know exist. It had 240 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs of torque. With an obscenely flat torque curve that peaks at 2400 rpm, off the line it was one mean burgundy machine. Only a slight twitch of my leg transformed the Regal from a cloud nine geriatric ride to an angry supercharged rhinocerous- with an appetite for Japanese cars with oversized spoilers, soup-can Exhausts, and non-functional hood scoops.
A car that defined the term 'sleeper', the Regal would particularly enjoy courting Honda Preludes, Civic Si's, or Mitsubishi Eclipses. After luring its prey into what initially appears like an opportune chance to exhibit their sweet stickers, the Regal would spring its trap. Its Eaton M90 Supercharger would be unleashed, packing the six cylinders with 27.4 psi of Boost; meanwhile, the drivetrain would give its best effort toward the futile endeavor of maintaining traction as the Regal would rocket past its imported competition. Such defeats would be expected to leave the Honda driver in a state of confusion, so fortunately the margin of victory would allow enough time for him to close his mouth and consider the embarrassment at exactly how much he spent on his unpainted body kit.
I never lost a race in that car. Except when the opponent had blue and red lights on top.
The GS was commonly seen around Spartanburg, SC demonstrating her artistic side. One of her oft-repeated performances was a painting of twin streaks of Michelin residue against a backdrop of smoky clouds of rubber-based particulate matter, set to the tune of a high-pitched whine eminating from twin helical screws.
Anyway, all good things must come to an end. I was graduating high school, and moving on to college. My father decided to trade it in, and no, I won't sully the Regal's good name by revealing what it was traded in for.
Plain and simple: this video presents my final drive in the Regal GS. Man, I loved that car.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS Review
The Smoking Tire heads out to Adams Motorsports Park to test out the new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS. We put it through its paces on the track and run a hot lap to find out if its 200 horsepower advantage is enough to take the lap time crown from our current leader, the Volkswagen GTI.
