GN vs. GT500
I ran a GT500, he wasnt talking to anyone, just acting like his GT500 was a
Ford GT or something. He did a really weird burnout and I let him get the
jump. I guess he liked his rims to much to get a stickier tire because all
he did was spin. It wasnt even a race, his time ended up being 21.41
seconds in the quarter.
Buick Grand National Car Show, 1990
Video by John Spina, Caspers Electronics Inc. in Lake Zurich IL 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. Amazing, 80's
technology is still hard to beat.
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.
The Legend: Turbo Buicks
The Smoking Tire heads out to Fontana, CA for a drag strip meetup with the
guys from turboBuick.com and learns
about the one-time "fastest car in America," the Buick Grand National.
Watch this video for answers to all your questions (songs, car mods,
setups, etc..) along with bonus footage and updates.
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''
pulley (14psi) and ethanol.
374whp with same mods as vs the blown GT
As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!
