The 2011 Regal represents a new beginning for Buick. With this car, the company is pushing into a segment it really hasn't competed in before. But why did Buick choose Regal over other heritage nameplates, and does the car go far enough to please enthusiasts?

Jaguar XJ Styling - Instant Impression
The new Jaguar XJ is here, and it has bold, perhaps divisive, styling courtesy of designer Ian Callum. But, does this luxurious land yacht hit the mark in the looks department? Well, it's all subjective, but to our eyes there are a few features that don't come off as well as they should, and there is at least one major fit and finish problem.

The Michigan Auto Times editors reviewed many models of all makes and styles on the road today, made use of its own vehicle comparisons and checked the results against some of the most commonly read Detroit car review sites to see how the results agreed with others in the industry.
The editors learned in their cross-sectional study of peers that certain models were underserved and overlooked, and some models should have received more coverage and positive press.
For this reason, those at Michigan Auto Times feel car buyers receive a better review with their list when compared with others, and audiences will see certain models on the Michigan Auto Times list that were not named as top picks by other review sites.

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!
