Black Air The Buick Grand National Documentary – Biography, History full film
Black Air The Buick Grand National Documentary – Biography, History full film It was a strange and curious misfit. Though born a Buick, the Grand National was clearly something else.

CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL exit from ... "THE-KING!!!" 10-16-2012
... just to monitor the Stage-1's HIGHWAY PERFORMANCE for the 1st time. When BRUNO and I went for "drive," Bruno couldn't give me anything other than a "thumb-up" due to my NOT FLOORING it ... nor giving him @ 1/2-throttle demos. He wanted me to open-it-up a bit ... I was scared to upset the Police & neighbors. LOL THE BUICK PULLS REALLY HARD PAST 2800-RPM!! This video view looks much slower than the "live' accelerations. IT'S MUCH faster THAN the 455 Buick motor Scotty at Pee-Gee Performance (in Brooklyn at the time) built for me ... which is WHAT I WANTED (since some idiot-low-life STOLE that Regal-455). I NEVER took the "455" past "3500-RPM!" I wanted to get some idea of how the Buick accelerates between 2000-3500-RPM on these badly thrashed used $30 street tires. This video looks slower than the "real-time" acceleration for some reason. Engine temp was a firm 170-degrees all the way to BRUNO'S and back. I AM VERY HAPPY with my D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 V8 thus far, Thank-God. MY FRONT SUSPENSION REALLY NEEDS AN UPGRADE for the streets. UPDATES to follow.
PONTIAC ALLEY with "T.K."/ Buick 455 Stage-1 Regal TCI Shifter Update #7. 7-16-2011
Tyrone gave me "demos" regarding utilizing this TCI Street-Fighter Mega-Shifter. It was so-freaking-funny (Much Respect, Tyrone LOL) hearing Tyrone make the "PONTIAC" engine sounds during his demo!!! T.K. is "Too-Cool!!!" I remember when I had the type energy T.K. has ... and I really miss it. Apparently, he is going to follow in his Father's foot-steps ... and go PONTIAC also. The next video shows my shifter plate "template" in place. SO-FAR-SO-GOOD!!!
1969 Chevrolet Chevelle vs 1987 Buick GNX - Generation Gap: Muscle Cars
Cast your vote here: http://www.hagerty.com/Articles-Videos/Articles/2014/10/13/Muscle-Cars Join Ken Lingenfelter in supporting the Ronald McDonald House charity: www.rmhc.org In the latest episode of Generation Gap, Matt and Davin have brought the muscle. Matt’s pick, a 1987 Buick GNX, is arguably one of the best muscle cars to come out of the 1980s, with a McLaren Performance-tuned turbo-charged V-6 putting 245 hp and 360 ft.-lb. of torque to the ground. Davin thought he could slip one by with this unassuming 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle. The secret is that it’s a rare COPO with the 427-cid engine with 425 hp and 460 ft.-lb. of torque. This Chevelle looks like grandma’s car, but goes like a Yenko.
