Fast & Furious 4: Buick Grand National
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.
1987 Buick Grand National VS 2010 V6 Chevy Camaro 1/4 Mile run 2010
Been working on my GN with my friends for the past two years and decided to
give her a run for the first time at a local cruise night. Not being at the
track in years I didn't know where to stage and didn't have time to build
Boost...but 12.1 in 1/4 is a good
start. It's a 1987 Buick Grand National with 26k original miles with stock
motor and a few bolt on. The paint and interior are all stock.
