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!

"MID-11s-STEVE" with his 1987 TURBO BUICK REGAL at FLoyd Bennet Field's Muscle Car Show 6-9-2013
This video's purpose is to introduce a new toy belonging to "Mid-11s-Steve"
and to check out the DEVASTATING Muscle Cars, 1940-1960's Classics as well
as pure Muscle Car Classics!
I took photos of every car in the Show ... I will create a slideshow soon
displaying them appropriately. I apologize, as Steve's '87 turbo Regal BLEW ME AWAY; I "always" wanted one
Steve's 1987 turbocharged/Intercooled V6
bone-stock BEAUTIFUL Special-T Regal is IMMACULATE inside & out! I have
HONESTLY never seen a "g-body" Buick Regal of ANY for or fashion that looks
BETTER than this one ... hands-down.
I can't say any more regarding this "phenomenal" Buick than the owner did
in this video; however ... I "feel" Steve is going to do some TWEAKING as
we say in North Carolina, "Somewhere-Down-The-Line."
ENJOY YOUR NEW AMERICAN MUSCLE CAR, Steve.
By-The-Way, Steve ... you're going to need a "nickname" for your persona
with this BEAST. LOL. Maybe ... "turbo-6-Steve." The "Mid-11-Second-Steve" is for
the '86 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal you have. LOL

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
BUICK - The "Grand National" & "GNX" Story Part 1 of 3
I don't like too many 80s cars, but this is my favorite BY FAR. It's the
only car I allow to be included with the "brute force" muscle cars of the
60s and early 70s. I enjoyed working on them and driving them when I
started as a tech at a Buick dealer in 1991, in Arlington TX. Too bad
Pontiac and Olds didn't also make their own version of this the same way
Buick made theirs.---Buick made a V6 from wacking 2 cylinders off their
great V8, while letting the turbo and
PERFECT computerized spark/fuel control "get back" the lost power of the 2
cylinders, AND retaining V6 fuel economy!--(these cars could get in the
high 20s low 30s on the hwy). Since this is EXACTLY a Buick V8 with 2
cylinders wacked off, and since it is a 90 degree V (like a V8) unlike many
V6s, the result is a nice even power curve that does not lack low-end. It
does not have near the low-end "turbo
lag" as many turbo POS's today that have
to redline at 8500rpm before they make any power. In fact, in stock form
these engines never need to see over 5000rpm.
'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

1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
