The Story of this car..
Brought out storage,in year 2000
had 2 differant motor builds both whipe the camshafts,little known to
people back then was the camshaft manufactors fault ,the cams metal was
flawed,the 90's SP cams

3 total rebilds all i payed for,Dynoed an to the track same
thing, 1/2 track garnade First Run !!
4th new motor bought an payed for, i pull car out KDK
spend over $30,000 in cash an parts totaling over 3 years
I call Cal Hartline,He recommeds Lamotta performance
The new motor from KDK goes striaght on the Dyno an BOOM!! headgasket
launches as all the times before
I asked Jake at Lamotta if he can fix it, an add GNX style dash an new Intercooler,6 months later
motors done at Heartbeat racing engines,Even though Lamottoa dropped my
motor to him for whatever reason i had to go pick it up.(that cost the
tranny in my truck!)After Lamotta installs the motor an fires it,I called
Jake an he said i quote "Its fine, ready to go"..I pick it up, Its belowing
white smoke out the exshuast very 10 minutes,water temps high, oil
pressuers All over the place!!!,,the dash speedo don't work, (the whole
reason i had the GNX dash kit Installed!!) an the grill ,Lamotta broke the
headerpanel flap so my Grill dangles in place,had to buy whole new front
headlight pannel,won't mention them storing my car under a car on lift that

have over 2000miles on it

Moral to this build,Try your Hardest to Have one All-in-One shop work on
your car,Or you'll get the Third person run around,(example), Oh i'll take
your car an your money,but its the machist fault or part builders fault why
nothing works,pay us, blame them...
First time you here that....Run!!!
Get all work in Writing,You might need it later
Wheel Spin - Why they call me Turbo231 - My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1
From my video archives, a very short video of my Buick in action.
This is my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1, one of 468 made that year and the
last year of the designer cars.
Taken back in probably 2002, I was playing with the waste gate, trying to
find the right spot between Boosting
and getting her to spool the turbo. Fan
is running because the Jay Carter 93 Octaine chip makes it run any speed
under 55 for cooling. You can barely hear the turbo spool.
I do have other videos of this car on my channel...enjoy. (my lame
sideburns included...shot by my dad)
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.

This is a quick run down of my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series
car. You can read all about it and see clear pictures at its website:
Sorry for the lack of action, it's just me showing some of the items I've
done to the car since I've owned it. I omitted that that the silver paint
is cracked and needs to be repainted and that I also needed to add the #7
lower body bushing. I plan to have it on the road in the next year or two.
It currently has just over 80k miles.
