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."
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!

'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
