86 Buick Grand National For Sale
My awesome 86 Grand National is looking for a new home. Unless you want to
buy 77 acres in North Florida, then I can keep my car. This is a numbers
matching, original low mileage survivor car, only 25K miles on it. It is a
Black Beauty, with a 3.8L SFI Inter-cooled turbo V-6, and a 4 speed auto overdrive
transmission. It also has a posi-traction rearend. Back in it's day, there
were few that could hang with it. It started life as a boring Regal, but
went to the gym and started pumping iron and this is what happened as a
result. These cars were so fast, GM canceled the program because they were
making the Corvette look silly, and GM just couldn't have that. Step up,
don't be shy, and own this great American Legend.
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.

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!
