Grand National and GNX History (part 2 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.

Wheel Spin - Why they call me Turbo231 - My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1
From my video archives, a very short video of my Buick in action.
This is my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1, one of 468 made that year and the
last year of the designer cars.
Taken back in probably 2002, I was playing with the waste gate, trying to
find the right spot between Boosting
and getting her to spool the turbo. Fan
is running because the Jay Carter 93 Octaine chip makes it run any speed
under 55 for cooling. You can barely hear the turbo spool.
I do have other videos of this car on my channel...enjoy. (my lame
sideburns included...shot by my dad)

Here's a 1987 Buick Regal "T" I just found and purchased after waiting 25 +
years looking and saving my "ready money". NOTHINGS PERFECT, and this

My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series
This is a quick run down of my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series
car. You can read all about it and see clear pictures at its website:
Sorry for the lack of action, it's just me showing some of the items I've
done to the car since I've owned it. I omitted that that the silver paint
is cracked and needs to be repainted and that I also needed to add the #7
lower body bushing. I plan to have it on the road in the next year or two.
It currently has just over 80k miles.

Here's my "watch how fast it flies out the door" car of the week. If you
don't snatch this one up quickly, I guarantee someone else will. Hesitate
at your own risk. This Regal is 1 of only 1575 T-Types built in '85.
In the '80s, when the muscle car renaissance began, automakers rediscovered
using technology, not cubic inches. If you were paying attention to cars
back then, you know that one of the undisputed horsepower kings of the
mid-80s was the rear-wheel-drive Buick Regal with its turbocharged 3.8 liter V6. Eventually they evolved
to the 1987 GNX, which was reputedly so wickedly powerful and fast that the
FBI ordered the final 300 that rolled off the assembly line. Whether this
is true or not is the cause of much speculation, but there's no denying the
cars were brutally fast and responded well to small modifications. Even
today, Grand National Buicks are tearing up drag strips all across the
country and there's a thriving aftermarket dedicated to the restoration and
modification of these really cool cars.
This '85 Regal T-Type is in great condition. The T-Type was not a Grand
National, although it features the same hardware under the skin. While the
Grand National was completely monochromatic, the T-Types retained the
Regals chrome bumpers and grille and featured a slightly different
interior. The panels are straight with no signs of damage or rust. The
black paint is very nice and the chrome bumpers on this car are in
excellent condition without a ding or parking lot dent anywhere.
The V6 turbocharged 3.8 litre has only
80,410 miles on it, and is 100% stock. Look at the pictures and you can see
how well-maintained this T-Type is. Everything is in top-flight condition.
There's not any additional flash under there, but it is factory original
and correct, which is probably a lot more important on a relatively rare
car like this one. The hot turbo motor
is backed by GM's ultra-reliable 4-speed automatic. This Buick offers great
off-the-line go and impressive high-speed cruising abilities. Sitting at
all four corners are a set of Grand National rims and nicely treaded tires.
Inside, the all original interior is more luxury than sport. As a Buick,
this T-Type is loaded with all the features you'd expect: power windows,
power locks, climate control, an aftermarket stereo system with MP3 player,
tilt wheel, and power front seats. All of the interior lights work. The
upholstery is a bit faded, but aside from that, is in great condition. The
seats are comfortable for long stretches and again, they are what the
factory was putting out in 1985. The trunk has a car cover and spare, and
it's just as nice as the rest of the interior.
Documentation includes the body build sheet found on the underside of the
Everybody knows about the legendary Grand National Buicks, and nobody
scoffs at them. They're incredibly easy to modify to outrageous power
levels and highly collectable, even today. The T-Types are arguably rarer
and certainly more unique with their slightly more luxury-oriented mission.
This T-Type is an incredible bargain, and you can almost bet on the fact
that these cars will only become more valuable in the coming years. Pick
this one up and enjoy it while it appreciates! Call Tom today at

1986 Buick Grand National Barn Find, 18 years in storage
Here's my 1986 Buick GN, that I just purchased from the original owner and
brought her home yesterday. She has 17,588 miles and has been in storage

getting her on the road this summer. A big thank you to her original owner
for taking such great care of the car and keeping copious documentation.
1997 Cobra VS 1994 Camaro Z28
My Cobra with 3.73 gears and Exhaust
with no cats going against Jerret's Camaro with Cold Air Intake and
full 3 inch Exhaust with no cats. He
just installed a 400 turbo with a 3000
stall. I did a burnout right before we raced to heat the tires up and then
reversed back up to the Camaro before we raced. Then
forgot to put it back into 1st gear. LOL
