guys from turboBuick.com and learns
about the one-time "fastest car in America," the Buick Grand National.
Widening some Volvo steelies. From 6" wide to 9" and 9,5". Recorded with
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:
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
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

I wanted to try a new style for my winter rims, and instead of pinting them
i wrapped them in vinyl, Costs about $10 a rim.

a rim quickly(sped up 3x), There really is no downfall to doing this, faster and cheaper then painting, the
vinyl only weighs .4 ounces or about 50 grams. and thats spread out
throughout the rim and if you dont like it then just peal it off. If you
want more info or you want to buy some vinyl contact me at

Focus ST Eibach Sportline Coil Springs Installation 2013
Eibach's Sportline Coil Spring Set will equip your 2013-2014 Focus ST with
race car like handling for maximum street performance. With Sportline Coil
Springs, you will achieve the lowest possible drop, yet maintaining the
exceptional ride quality you expect from Eibach. You will be able to stop
quicker, corner faster, gain
better MPG, and dramatically reduce squat during acceleration.
For installation, you'll first access and loosen the strut tower. Then,
remove the wheel and disconnect and remove the strut, following Bill's
instructions in the install video. After this, you'll disassemble the
strut, removing the original spring and spring dust boots. Then, install
the new Eibach spring and dust boot on the spring, along with the bump
stops included in the set.
Return the strut to your Focus and reinstall all bolts and brackets,
reconnect the sway bar and ABS sensor, and then repeat this process on the
other side. Resecure your wheels and reassemble your strut tower and cowl.
Next, you'll work on you rear springs, which are a lot less involved.
Remove the bolt pointed out by Bill, which holds the perch in place,
allowing you to access the rear spring. Remove the spring and bump stop,
and then secure the new bump stop and new Eibach spring. Next, return the
perch and bolt and then complete this process on the other side. Total
installation takes around three hours.
