Buick - 1985 Buick Grand National

Here's another great video from the History Channel's archive on the 1985 Buick Regal turbocharged Grand National. Per the History Channel's exact video description: "A high-horsepower, attention-grabbing celebration of speed, the 1985 Grand National represents Buick's return to muscle-car roots. Now, two teams of veteran mechanics try to extract everything they can from the Grand National's made-for-speed equipment (including turbo engines, fuel injectors, and racing transmissions) to transform the car into a big, mean racing machine The premise is simple: FULL THROTTLE selects two teams who are each given the same model of classic car in a similar state of disrepair. They're supplied with a garage, tools, and parts, and after 20 hours of repair time, they battle it out in an old-fashioned drag-race on a certified track. The winner keeps both cars. The loser keeps nothing. They're fast, they're flashy, they reignited America's love of muscle cars-and finally, the 1985 BUICK GRAND NATIONAL returns with a vengeance on the track."

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!

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.

1985 Buick T Type Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! Here's my "watch how fast it flies out the door" car of the week. If you don't snatch this one up quickly, I guarantee someone else will. Hesitate at your own risk. This Regal is 1 of only 1575 T-Types built in '85. In the '80s, when the muscle car renaissance began, automakers rediscovered horsepower by using technology, not cubic inches. If you were paying attention to cars back then, you know that one of the undisputed horsepower kings of the mid-80s was the rear-wheel-drive Buick Regal with its turbocharged 3.8 liter V6. Eventually they evolved to the 1987 GNX, which was reputedly so wickedly powerful and fast that the FBI ordered the final 300 that rolled off the assembly line. Whether this is true or not is the cause of much speculation, but there's no denying the cars were brutally fast and responded well to small modifications. Even today, Grand National Buicks are tearing up drag strips all across the country and there's a thriving aftermarket dedicated to the restoration and modification of these really cool cars. This '85 Regal T-Type is in great condition. The T-Type was not a Grand National, although it features the same hardware under the skin. While the Grand National was completely monochromatic, the T-Types retained the Regals chrome bumpers and grille and featured a slightly different interior. The panels are straight with no signs of damage or rust. The black paint is very nice and the chrome bumpers on this car are in excellent condition without a ding or parking lot dent anywhere. The V6 turbocharged 3.8 litre has only 80,410 miles on it, and is 100% stock. Look at the pictures and you can see how well-maintained this T-Type is. Everything is in top-flight condition. There's not any additional flash under there, but it is factory original and correct, which is probably a lot more important on a relatively rare car like this one. The hot turbo motor is backed by GM's ultra-reliable 4-speed automatic. This Buick offers great off-the-line go and impressive high-speed cruising abilities. Sitting at all four corners are a set of Grand National rims and nicely treaded tires. Inside, the all original interior is more luxury than sport. As a Buick, this T-Type is loaded with all the features you'd expect: power windows, power locks, climate control, an aftermarket stereo system with MP3 player, tilt wheel, and power front seats. All of the interior lights work. The upholstery is a bit faded, but aside from that, is in great condition. The seats are comfortable for long stretches and again, they are what the factory was putting out in 1985. The trunk has a car cover and spare, and it's just as nice as the rest of the interior. Documentation includes the body build sheet found on the underside of the trunk. Everybody knows about the legendary Grand National Buicks, and nobody scoffs at them. They're incredibly easy to modify to outrageous power levels and highly collectable, even today. The T-Types are arguably rarer and certainly more unique with their slightly more luxury-oriented mission. This T-Type is an incredible bargain, and you can almost bet on the fact that these cars will only become more valuable in the coming years. Pick this one up and enjoy it while it appreciates!
