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.
