Video shot in the middle between lanes, turn the Volume and Subwoofer up to
get the full effect from staging to E.T. and MPH... This is sweet to watch
V6 turbo with 3 inch downpipe. Dick has
created some controversy regarding the size of his downpipe, it doesn't
matter if he has a 3 inch or 5 inch! Nicknamed "Cpt. Controversy"
Maybe it is the weight of his helmet being so light that he is so fast...
In the final rounds of TSM, Dick was having engine problems (head gasket

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.
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.
