Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by
Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History
Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into
the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar
Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom
fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the
bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of
another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their
invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men,
William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building
business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant
realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with
Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were
regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks
through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the
compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for
the largest company in the world."

In 1986, a modified engine design with intercooling Boosted the performance even further; in 1987
it reached 245 hp (183 kW) and 355 lb·ft (481 N·m) of torque. Buick
dropped the T-Type package for Regal in 1987. There were only 7,896 turbo Regals produced in 1986. In 1987, when turbo Regals reached their peak in
popularity, a total of 27,590 turbo
Regals were produced through December, with those models produced between
September and December of that year window stickered as "1987½ Buick Grand
In 1987, a lightweight WE4 (turbo T)
option was offered. Only 1,547 of this variant were produced. They were
painted black and treated to the same blackout package as the Grand
National, including bumpers, grille, headlight and taillight trim. The
differences between a WE4 and the Grand National were the interior trim
package, wheels, exterior badging, aluminum bumper supports, and aluminum
rear brake drums as opposed to the Grand National's cast iron. The rear
spoiler was only available as a dealer installed option. 1987 was the only
year that the LC2 turbo option was
available on any Regal, making it possible to even see a Limited with a
vinyl landau roof and a power bulge turbo hood. turbo Regal Limiteds were one of the rarest models
of turbo Regals produced second only to
the GNX at 1,035 turbo Limiteds. turbo Regal Limiteds could be ordered with many
options with most having chrome external trim but for $35 could have been
built with the full black-out trim option making them extremely rare.
Limiteds were treated to a very luxurious interior with plush carpeting and
optional bench pillow seats and a column shift. The 1987 model would be the
end of the manufacture of the RWD "G-Body" Regal, but GM had to extend the
build of the Grand National to meet customer demand.
For the final year, 1987, Buick introduced the GNX at $29,900. Produced by
McLaren Performance Technologies/ASC, Buick underrated the GNX at 276 hp
(206 kW) and a very substantial 360 lb·ft (488 N·m) of torque. This
was created to be the "Grand National to end all Grand Nationals." Changes
made included a special Garrett T-3 turbocharger with a ceramic-impeller blowing
through a more efficient and significantly larger capacity Intercooler with a "CERMATEL
(Ceramic/Aluminum) coated" pipe connecting the Intercooler to the engine. A GNX
specific EEPROM, low-restriction Exhaust with dual mufflers, reprogrammed turbo Hydramatic 200-4R transmission with a
custom torque converter and transmission cooler, and unique differential
cover/panhard bar included more of the performance modifications. Exterior
styling changes include vents located on each front fender, 16 inch black
mesh style wheels with VR-speed rated tires, and deletion of the hood and
fender emblems. The interior changes of the GNX included a serial number on
the dash plaque and a revised instrument cluster providing analog
Stewart-Warner gauges, including an analog turboBoost
gauge. Performance was measured with a quarter mile time of 13.5 seconds at
102 mph (164 km/h) and a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time of 4.7 seconds.  GNX
#001 is the 1986 prototype currently owned by Buick and sometimes makes
appearances at car shows around the US. The GNX had a ladder bar that ran
from the mid-section of the car to the rear axle, so as to increase
traction. This is also the reason why a GNX will actually lift the rear end
up when the car is about to launch heavily.

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.

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!

Buick - 1985 Buick Grand National
Here's another great video from the History Channel's archive on the 1985
Buick Regal turbocharged Grand National.
Per the History Channel's exact video description:
attention-grabbing celebration of speed, the 1985 Grand National represents
Buick's return to muscle-car roots. Now, two teams of veteran mechanics try
to extract everything they can from the Grand National's made-for-speed
equipment (including turbo engines, fuel
injectors, and racing transmissions) to transform the car into a big, mean
The premise is simple: FULL THROTTLE selects two teams who are each given
the same model of classic car in a similar state of disrepair. They're
supplied with a garage, tools, and parts, and after 20 hours of repair
time, they battle it out in an old-fashioned drag-race on a certified
track. The winner keeps both cars. The loser keeps nothing.
They're fast, they're flashy, they reignited America's love of muscle
cars-and finally, the 1985 BUICK GRAND NATIONAL returns with a vengeance on
1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
