Grand National and GNX History (part 1 of 3)
Buick quietly re-entered the supercar wars in the late eighties with a turbocharged 3.8 liter V6 engine in an all black Regal. The car was so outrageously fast that its now among the most collectible cars of all time.

Tom's Turbo Garage: Buick Grand National Street & Strip Upgrades - Part 3
In this episode, we focus on making some good old turbocharged horsepower on my 1987 Buick Grand National. We also take a trip back to 1987 to look at performance recipes back then.
This is part of a multi-part series where we're making a host of modifications to this classic American muscle car to improve its performance on the street and strip. Thank you for watching and subscribing!
