Buick Grand National Car Show, 1990

Video by John Spina, Caspers Electronics Inc. in Loveland, Colorado, and hosted by Kirban Performance, Warminster PA. Vintage video footage showing the Buick Grand National frenzy back in the day...something you will never see again (at least not in these numbers - the closest you'll ever get to this many cars is the GS Nationals). The turbocharged and intercooled Buick was the fastest US production car in 1987; and even today, still one of the quickest vehicles on the road and at the quarter-mile tracks. This production vehicle has become a cult-classic and still shows up in numbers at the annual GSCA event in Bowling Green, KY.

BUICK GRAND NATIONAL
GRAND NATIONAL 27K MILES PARKED OUTSIDE IN MAINE FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND THEY DON'T WANT TO SELL IT......WHAT A WASTE





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 again. Enjoy!

87 Turbo Buick 11.42/121mph pass
June 26, 2009 - Baseline testing for the next upgrade. Funny part is Mustang before me forgets to close his hood. Not so funny as my tires cool down waiting for him to get his act together. That rattling noise after launch is a lesson learned on how much the tranny actually moves under load and how much clearance to maintain from rotating parts...oops.
