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.
2013 and 2014 Buick Encore Review and Road Test with IntelliLink Infotainment Review

Buick's been on a roll this year, their sales are up and their owner
demographics are younger than they have been in recent memory. The cynic in
my says that's because half their clientele died of old age, but it has
more to do with their product portfolio. Say what? Yep, it's true, the
brand I wrote off for dead last decade is targeting younger buyers with
designs imported from Europe and finding sales success. The Verano turbo shattered my preconceptions, but can Buick
do it again? A brown Encore arrived one rainy morning to see if it was
The Encore isn't new, but neither is it an American rehash of a tired Euro
model. Instead, it is "badge engineering" 21st century style. When I was a
kid you knew a new Buick was coming when Chevy or Oldsmobile announced a
new product. You also knew what to expect: the same sheetmetal with a Buick
logo on the grille and some padded velour thrones. 30 years later Buick is
up to the same old game with an important twist: Buick takes Opel models
from Europe. Consequently you won't find a brother-from-another-mother
running around with a Chevy logo.
Like its sister-ship, the Opel Mokka, the Encore is a small
crossover/hatchback closely related to GM's other small car offerings. Euro
origins are obvious when you park the Encore in an American parking spot,
this Buick is tiny. The Encore's tall profile further accentuates the
Encore's 168-inch overall length, which is surprisingly 6-inches longer
than a MINI Countryman.
The Encore isn't a terribly expensive crossover starting at $24,950 and
ending at $31,110 for a full-loaded AWD model. Despite the low starting
price, the cabin makes extensive use of soft touch plastics lending a more
premium feel to the cabin than vehicles like the MINI Countryman, Acura TSX
or Lexus CT. Speaking of MINI, the Countryman, (like the rest of the MINI
lineup) is a mixture of trickle-down BMW technology, great switchgear,
high-style, cheesy plastics and chintzy headliners. Of course MINI's
biggest asset is brand perception while Buick's brand is more of a
liability in some demographics. That's really a shame because the Encore
has not only a quality feel but a very uniform feel as well. While MINI's
cabins are full of highs and lows, everything in the Encore is consistently
a notch above the rabble. Equipping the Contryman and Encore as closely as
possible reveals the Encore is about $1,500 cheaper once you add to the
MINI the features standard on the Encore. Comparing the top-trim of the
Encore to the MINI the difference grows to $3,800 in the Encore's favor.
Want AWD? The difference grows by about three-grand.
The Encore may be small, but the interior is spacious thanks to the tall
profile, stubby nose and upright seats. Taller folks will have no problems
getting into or out of the front or rear seats thanks to large door
openings and a low step-in height. I grabbed a few willing tall people for
lunch and successfully (and comfortably) took two 6'5" passengers, one 6'2
gentleman and myself (6') on a 50 minute trek to the prefect burger joint
without a single complaint.
Because the Encore shares seat frames with GM sedans, there are a few
compromises. The lack of a power recline mechanism seems odd, especially
considering the 2-positon memory seat found in our tester. Using the sale
seat frames and rails as a sedan or coupé meant creating some unusual
"platforms" in the floor stamping so the seats could be mounted high to get
an SUV-like seating position. Consequently the rear footwells might be a
problem for big-footed passengers on long trips. A manual front passenger
seat is standard, but most models on dealer lots have the optional power
The Encore uses the same 1.4L four-cylinder engine as the Chevy Sonic and
Cruze. Producing 140 HP at 4,900 RPM this mill isn't targeted at speed
addicts. On the bright side, thanks to a turbocharger and some direct-injection magic, the
engine manages 148 lb-ft of twist from 1,850-4,900RPM and under certain
circumstances it will allow an "overBoost" to 163 lb-ft over the same range for up
to 10 seconds.
My opinion of the diminutive engine changed constantly during my week with
the Encore. In the city the low-end torque provided by the turbo and the low first gear make easy work of
0-40 MPH traffic and the Encore effortlessly zipped into narrow gaps on
busy expressways. Thanks to the way the throttle is mapped the engine
doesn't feel out of breath cruising on the highway, until you need to pass
someone as getting from 60 to 80 MPH takes a Prius-like 8 seconds. Load the
Encore up with two people and some luggage and forward progress is
noticeably stunted in all situations. However, every time I wished for more
power I glanced down at my fuel economy and was reminded that more power
consumes more gasoline.

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!
