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.

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.

London Cobra Burnouts 2012
Strapped to the back of my car, here's a Go Pro Video view looking back. This is the path that we run at the Ohio Cobra Club-sponsored "London Cobras". The length is just short of 1/8 mile (around 660 ft.), and the car got to 85 MPH by the time I passed the Radar Sign (on the left of the screen). What a THRILL to do this on a public roadway, under the watchful eye of the London Ohio PD. Great bunch of guys there.

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.





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!

9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140
We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9's at the time.Thanks to Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138 hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the 5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We're sure it'll go into the 9.40's yet and maybe even 30's after everything is worked out.





BUICK - The "Grand National" & "GNX" Story Part 1 of 3
I don't like too many 80s cars, but this is my favorite BY FAR. It's the only car I allow to be included with the "brute force" muscle cars of the 60s and early 70s. I enjoyed working on them and driving them when I started as a tech at a Buick dealer in 1991, in Arlington TX. Too bad Pontiac and Olds didn't also make their own version of this the same way Buick made theirs.---Buick made a V6 from wacking 2 cylinders off their great V8, while letting the turbo and PERFECT computerized spark/fuel control "get back" the lost power of the 2 cylinders, AND retaining V6 fuel economy!--(these cars could get in the high 20s low 30s on the hwy). Since this is EXACTLY a Buick V8 with 2 cylinders wacked off, and since it is a 90 degree V (like a V8) unlike many V6s, the result is a nice even power curve that does not lack low-end. It does not have near the low-end "turbo lag" as many turbo POS's today that have to redline at 8500rpm before they make any power. In fact, in stock form these engines never need to see over 5000rpm.
