"MID-11s-STEVE" with his 1987 TURBO BUICK REGAL at FLoyd Bennet Field's Muscle Car Show 6-9-2013
This video's purpose is to introduce a new toy belonging to "Mid-11s-Steve"
and to check out the DEVASTATING Muscle Cars, 1940-1960's Classics as well
as pure Muscle Car Classics!
I took photos of every car in the Show ... I will create a slideshow soon
displaying them appropriately. I apologize, as Steve's '87 turbo Regal BLEW ME AWAY; I "always" wanted one
Steve's 1987 turbocharged/Intercooled V6
bone-stock BEAUTIFUL Special-T Regal is IMMACULATE inside & out! I have
HONESTLY never seen a "g-body" Buick Regal of ANY for or fashion that looks
BETTER than this one ... hands-down.
I can't say any more regarding this "phenomenal" Buick than the owner did
in this video; however ... I "feel" Steve is going to do some TWEAKING as
we say in North Carolina, "Somewhere-Down-The-Line."
ENJOY YOUR NEW AMERICAN MUSCLE CAR, Steve.
By-The-Way, Steve ... you're going to need a "nickname" for your persona
with this BEAST. LOL. Maybe ... "turbo-6-Steve." The "Mid-11-Second-Steve" is for
the '86 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal you have. LOL

Regular Car Reviews: 1986 Buick Grand National
Drive a Grand National for long enough, and you'll find yourself in a fight
outside a pub with a mustache in a 77 Chevette. But you'll win every time,
because you have the righteousness of choice on your side. Maybe your left
hook isn't as strong, and your haymaker isn't as wild, but dammit, you have
taste. And that counts for something. An ass-kicking something. You bang
like a champ because you don't know when the next time will be. And that
kind of dedication means you'll never be un-bung again.
Your Summit Girl will hate that she let you go, because she'll see you in
a Grand National, and she'll say, “You know what? He's driving automatic,
but that's a Man for All Seasons right there.” And she'll know, because
she's dating a Lion In Winter. A feckless, limp-dicked, do-nothing shell of
a man who doesn't know what to do with his free time in the NFL off season.
-It's everything right and good, and a little bit off, with the world. It's
the bitter taste of a smoker's nicotine kiss, and the welcoming, cushiony
pocket of her vagina. You're home now. You're slopping around in the
primordial ooze. The Grand National loosens the pickle jar of human
goodness. It takes you back to a past that's irretrievably but eternally
present, just on the edges of your consciousness, like all good things.
Capable of being called up on a drunken night. Because sometimes, you just
get drunk, and sometimes you start thinking about where you come from, and
sometimes you call your mom just to hear her voice. And when she asks why
you called, you just say, “I have a missed call from you. But maybe it's
old. My phone doesn't say.” You both know it's bull, but you both let it
go, because you're a grown man, and you can't just say, “I needed to hear
you, mom. I was in a Grand National today, and I can see it all. Stretched
out in front of me like it happened yesterday. Playing Turtles In Time and
drinking Juicy Juice out of a triangle-shaped hole you made with a
can-opener handle.” So you bite your lower lip and put on a brave face.
The Grand National is automatic, but no one's emotions are that simple.
Grand National VS Maverick
Nice change of events after the Maverick gets the hole shot, as soon as the
Boost comes on...bye bye. leaving
with 0 Boost (you can hear it spool
up about 60 feet out), 93 octane with meth, conservative tune. Ran a best
86 Buick T-type vs. Yamaha R6
My daily driver 86 ttype vs buddy's R6. I ran an 11.81 @ 117.8mph and he
ran a 12.08 @ 122.3mph. I won this race but he ran a best of 11.5 @ 126mph
later in the day!
Buick Grand National on Dyno
My buddies GN on the Dyno. Not an accurate pull since
car has non-lock-up converter in it and Dynojet didn't have correct
program for it. Still sounds mean and gets up there quick! Watch the front
right tire as it slows up for a backfire flash

In this episode we give my 1987 Buick Grand National some much needed
attention, specifically to the differential and rear suspension. This is
the second part of a multi-part series where we're making a host of
modifications to this American classic to improve its performance on the
street and strip. Thanks for watching and subscribing!
