Last Drive in my 1999 Buick Regal GS [Part 1 of 2]
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxzX1mqCD6g
My first car was a 1999 Regal GS. Powered by a supercharged 3.8L V6, the
Regal was capable of speeds that Buick's target audience don't know exist.
It had 240 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs of
torque. With an obscenely flat torque curve that peaks at 2400 rpm, off the
line it was one mean burgundy machine. Only a slight twitch of my leg
transformed the Regal from a cloud nine geriatric ride to an angry
supercharged rhinocerous- with an appetite for Japanese cars with oversized
spoilers, soup-can Exhausts, and
non-functional hood scoops.
A car that defined the term 'sleeper', the Regal would particularly enjoy
courting Honda Preludes, Civic Si's, or Mitsubishi Eclipses. After luring
its prey into what initially appears like an opportune chance to exhibit
their sweet stickers, the Regal would spring its trap. Its Eaton M90 Supercharger would be unleashed, packing
the six cylinders with 27.4 psi of Boost; meanwhile, the drivetrain would give
its best effort toward the futile endeavor of maintaining traction as the
Regal would rocket past its imported competition. Such defeats would be
expected to leave the Honda driver in a state of confusion, so fortunately
the margin of victory would allow enough time for him to close his mouth
and consider the embarrassment at exactly how much he spent on his
unpainted body kit.
I never lost a race in that car. Except when the opponent had blue and red
lights on top.
The GS was commonly seen around Spartanburg, SC demonstrating her artistic
side. One of her oft-repeated performances was a painting of twin streaks
of Michelin residue against a backdrop of smoky clouds of rubber-based
particulate matter, set to the tune of a high-pitched whine eminating from
twin helical screws.
Anyway, all good things must come to an end. I was graduating high school,
and moving on to college. My father decided to trade it in, and no, I won't
sully the Regal's good name by revealing what it was traded in for.
Plain and simple: this video presents my final drive in the Regal GS. Man,
I loved that car.

Regal GS vs 240sx Turbo, WRX, WRX Wagon
99 Regal GS - Tune, 3.4 pulley, 3" downpipe, zero knock count. The interior
was out to clean the carpet and replace the rear speakers. Weight with the
interior out was 3340 lbs on 1/2 a tank (no driver).
The car runs a fairly consistent 13.8 @ 102 on that setup at around 60°
Next we will be testing a smaller 3.2 pulley and meth injection followed by
E85. We've also mounted an intake air temp sensor directly underneath the
blower outlet to measure temp differences between different pulleys and
spraying different combinations of methanol and water.
2001 Buick Regal GS vs 2002 Buick Regal GS
My 01 Regal GS vs my brothers 2002 Regal GS. His black GS has Exhaust, smaller pulley, CAI, and tune by
McCord. Mine has gone a best of 14.56 @ 92 and his runs 13.90s. These
aren't the fastest cars but they're fun daily drivers. This was done on
closed roads too...
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!
