BUICK - Short Bio on the Buick "Grand National" and "GNX"
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.





The Driver (1978) Part 1 of 2
Chase clips from THE DRIVER. Professional driver is hired to "do the getaways" from cops right after a crime/robbery/etc is committed. In Part 1, he uses a Ford LTD in a getaway. Back in that time era, I'm guessing the cop cars of that body style might be able to come with an optional 440v8--(notice how damn quick they catch up to him a few times). Also in Part one he tears up a Mercedes showing off his driving skills to some thugs considering hiring him to drive. Later in Part 2 the driver is doing the chasing for a change, he is chasing the thugs from Part 1---who are driving a Pontiac.

OLDSMOBILE - The 1st Generation Rocket V8s Part 1 of 3
THE FIRST GENERATION ROCKET V8 BLOCK was produced from 1949-64. It started as a 303 in 1949, then grew to a 324, then a 371--(which also came in a special J2 Rocket version that came out in 1957), and finished off with it's largest displacement---a 394 that came out in 1959 (the 394 was produced until 1964). But after the 394 in 1959, the lastly developed engine of this "first generation era" was a special smaller lighter 215v8 with a turbo charger produced in the early 60s. The first intermediate sized musclecar came in 1964 "The Pontiac GTO". But prior to the Intermediate sized musclecars, the early 50s OLDSMOBILE ROCKETS can strongly be argued as being THE FIRST MUSCLE CAR (especially the 88's because they were a few hundred pounds lighter than a 98). My dad was blessed with getting a 303v8 1950 Olds 4dr 88 handed down to him in 1955 when my Grandpa got a new 55 Olds.
