Grand National and GNX History (part 2 of 3)
Buick quietly re-entered the supercar wars in the late eighties with a turbocharged 3.8 liter V6 engine in an all
black Regal. The car was so outrageously fast that its now among the most
collectible cars of all time.

MORE FAST& FURIOUS 4 @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Heists are, by their nature, illegal. So what could be a better car for a
heist than a sinister black Buick Grand National GNX? And that's just what
Dominic Torreto (Vin Diesel) drives at the beginning of Fast & Furious as
he robs a land train full of high-octane fuel. No one in the picture car
department remembers exactly how the GNX won its role, except that it
seemed such a natural choice that no one gave it a second thought.
Considering the intense stunts performed during the filming of this opening
sequence, it's probably not surprising that a lot of Buick Grand Nationals
(but no actual GNXs) were sacrificed in its creation. In fact, the picture
car department created seven of them, all based on real GNs or T-Types.
Four would wind up scrapped.
The most unusual of the seven GNs built was one with the body mounted
backward on the frame so it could be driven at speed while appearing to be
going backward. To get the engine tucked under the trunk lid, however, the
turbocharger and its plumbing had to be
removed. Most of the other GNs retained their original turbo V6s, though a couple had Chevy crate V8s
It's amazing it took this long for someone to give the Grand National the
starring role it deserved.

'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
