Grand National and GNX History (part 1 of 3)
Buick quietly re-entered the supercar wars in the late eighties with a turbocharged 3.8 liter V6 engine in an all
black Regal. The car was so outrageously fast that its now among the most
collectible cars of all time.

BUICK - The "Grand National" & "GNX" Story Part 2 of 3
I don't like too many 80s cars, but this is my favorite BY FAR. It's the
only car I allow to be included with the "brute force" muscle cars of the
60s and early 70s. I enjoyed working on them and driving them when I
started as a tech at a Buick dealer in 1991, in Arlington TX. Too bad
Pontiac and Olds didn't also make their own version of this the same way
Buick made theirs.---Buick made a V6 from wacking 2 cylinders off their
great V8, while letting the turbo and
PERFECT computerized spark/fuel control "get back" the lost power of the 2
cylinders, AND retaining V6 fuel economy!--(these cars could get in the
high 20s low 30s on the hwy). Since this is EXACTLY a Buick V8 with 2
cylinders wacked off, and since it is a 90 degree V (like a V8) unlike many
V6s, the result is a nice even power curve that does not lack low-end. It
does not have near the low-end "turbo
lag" as many turbo POS's today that have
to redline at 8500rpm before they make any power. In fact, in stock form
these engines never need to see over 5000rpm.

1987 Buick Grand National First start in ten years
Video was made for personal use but decided to share
Sat in storage for ten years (01-11)
Changed oil, changed plugs and charged the battery. Thats it.
Fogged the cylinders and ran the motor with out plugs to build up oil
pressure before i started it.
Smoke from start up was from the fogging oil, I still cant believe how easy
it started. Even the gas in ten years old! Although, it was before Ethanol
was added to everything and it was treated with a heavy dose of good
stabilizer. It will be drained and new fuel will be added before we run it
Cotton's Performance 8.36@167
Brian Cotton making the 1st pass off the trailer with our V6 turbo TType at Cecil County with the Pumpkin. This
is a new record setting pass for our car. You can see me, a concerned
father watching his son make his fastest pass ever.. a proud father, I can
also tell you my wife Lorrie was just as proud and emotional as I was
watching from the other side of the track. A big thank you to Richie R from
a great video shot , thanks so much!!
