Regular Car Reviews: 1986 Buick Grand National

Drive a Grand National for long enough, and you'll find yourself in a fight outside a pub with a mustache in a 77 Chevette. But you'll win every time, because you have the righteousness of choice on your side. Maybe your left hook isn't as strong, and your haymaker isn't as wild, but dammit, you have taste. And that counts for something. An ass-kicking something. You bang like a champ because you don't know when the next time will be. And that kind of dedication means you'll never be un-bung again.
Your Summit Girl will hate that she let you go, because she'll see you in a Grand National, and she'll say, “You know what? He's driving automatic, but that's a Man for All Seasons right there.” And she'll know, because she's dating a Lion In Winter. A feckless, limp-dicked, do-nothing shell of a man who doesn't know what to do with his free time in the NFL off season.
-It's everything right and good, and a little bit off, with the world. It's the bitter taste of a smoker's nicotine kiss, and the welcoming, cushiony pocket of her vagina. You're home now. You're slopping around in the primordial ooze. The Grand National loosens the pickle jar of human goodness. It takes you back to a past that's irretrievably but eternally present, just on the edges of your consciousness, like all good things. Capable of being called up on a drunken night. Because sometimes, you just get drunk, and sometimes you start thinking about where you come from, and sometimes you call your mom just to hear her voice. And when she asks why you called, you just say, “I have a missed call from you. But maybe it's old. My phone doesn't say.” You both know it's bull, but you both let it go, because you're a grown man, and you can't just say, “I needed to hear you, mom. I was in a Grand National today, and I can see it all. Stretched out in front of me like it happened yesterday. Playing Turtles In Time and drinking Juicy Juice out of a triangle-shaped hole you made with a can-opener handle.” So you bite your lower lip and put on a brave face.
The Grand National is automatic, but no one's emotions are that simple.

Sadly it was marketed almost exclusively towards said oligarchs. because it's a Buick, being more expensive than both chevy and pontiac.

I'd say the british version of the Grand National is the Lotus Carlton.

The 80s and 90s are where cars peaked, they didn't have as many problems and most of them were different

Something that is NEVER mentioned about these is the intercooler fan & shroud. There is a fan attached to the crank pulley that always draws air through the intercooler. This makes the incoming air much cooler than if it wasn't there...

I think Americans had a lot of pride in the mid-80s. Just sayin.

I heard 1986 are 1987 if they made them that year was it meeting the Corvette and they stopped making them because people were them instead of the Corvette

For the 1980s , it was a quick car. In the grand scheme of muscle cars though, it's Grand Pa's Buick painted black, automatic only, and ill handling.

It looks NOTHING like an XB Falcon. I can't actually think of ANY Australian car that has an even similar shape. It's a shame really, I would have like to have had your car here, I think it looks different, at least, than the "Big Three" as we used to call them before one of them sold out to Mitsubishi, and the other two went on until just a few years ago when they all went away, never to be seen again as OURS. On a different note. You have an interesting way of delivering your spiel. Quite entertaining once I got used to it. I bet you could make the label on a Corn Flakes packet sound interesting.

The grand national is a cool car. But I'll never understand all the nostalgia over it. There were way better cars.

My buddy bought a new GN back in 86', he took me for a ride in it when it was 3 degrees fahrenheit out but the streets were clean and dry. He came to a stopped and then floored it, the car didn't feel all that fast until we were going around 20 when the boost kicked in and the car broke traction and started going sideways, he kept the car in the lane and it shifted into 2nd sending the car sideways again. I'd ridden the car when it was about 80 degrees out and it was fast but it was alot faster at 3 degrees.

My dad had a 67 GTO 400bb when i was 12 and we stopped to get gas one night and a friend of his was there and had just bought a GN brand new that day. They were talking shit to each other and when we pulled out they took off and that Buick left us so fast i yelled "KICK IT DAD!" He said "HELL IT IS!" Lol! Ill never forget the first time i saw one in action!!!

Get your fuckin' politics out of your car reviews, Mr. Mondale. And the plural of medium is media. Unsubscribed.

You are so right! I had the opportunity to drive one before work one day. It was new. I smiled the entire day through my shift and home remembering the 60's and early 70's torque monsters, since there hadn't been much of that since then. My ride was a real disappointment looking at it in the driveway when I got home.

Love the revisionists history, the 80s is when my family got rich (blue collar money). wish car commentators would save the college prep political science lesson for their 23 year old gender fluid kid that still lives on the couch ..
