The Buick Grand National is the ultimate 1980s muscle car. Today I'm reviewing the Grand National to show you why the Buick Grand National is special -- and I'm driving the Grand National, and I'm taking you on a tour of the Grand National's quirks and features.

a 6.7 second 0-60 time ? With what driving, an elephant ? The car, in the hands of any decent driver, was capable of sub 6 second 0-60 times. When this engine was placed into the 1989 20th anniversary Turbo T/A, it went 0-60 in around 4.6 seconds, even for the geeks at Motorweek. C'mon.....

This is the story of a couple of small time hustlers Framed by crooked cops and forced to make a run for their lives Nothin' but a bag of money, a stolen Buick Grand National And each other to their names They ain't friends, exactly These guys have a better chance of killing each other Than beating the odds No sir, they're brothers, and when the chips are down I really don't think you want to bet against Yankee and the Brave, Brave, Brave, Brave, Brave...

My first car was a 1985 Buick LeSabre Collector's Edition. That car had a lot of similar components- the speedometer cluster panel was identical; and it also featured the "Body by Fisher" stamp as well. BUT IN A TWIST- the seats were logo'ed with "LayZBoy" because GM contracted the LayZBoy company to manufacture their seats for that car...which DEFINITELY was a comfortable ride! How funny is that!?!

"Body by Fisher" was the logo stamped by Fisher Body- the first automotive production facility for General Motors in Flint, Michigan. It's long since gone...but both my grandfather and father both worked at Fisher Body at the corner of Saginaw and Hemphill Roads in Flint!

why does the grand national have a light blue interior? I thought the GN only came with grey on black for the interior

I remember some guy uploaded the video of a Caprice with the concert sound system.. and I swear to god, even trough the camera it sounded amazing, absolutely amazing for a car of that age... didn't knew there was concert sound in Grand Nationals.. hell.. now I want to go to the owner of this car and offer him my whole savings account.

When that car was on the prowl kids in their Mustang GT fox bodies just Had to try it and always walked away butt hurt. It did not play. Even guys with cars that had a lot of mods didn't fare well. There was nothing that could give it a spanking, the GNX, especially. That was a truly special ride.

0-60 in 6.7? Either there's problem with the engine or trans or your timer is off because the 1987 GN is a 5 sec 0-60 car. I read several road test on it and all around that time.

Tachometer , tachometer , tachometer . You confuse me with RPM meter . I watch all your videos , and only 2 things ever bother me . Tachometer and your self righteous indignation and disdain for anything to do with smoking . You don't smoke , we got it . I however do smoke , and a car without an ashtray would be useless.

Fisher Coach works was a subsidiary of GM. Again, great fact checking Doug. It's one thing to not know what you are talking about but to post it on ESvid and prove it is a whole other level.

Hey Doug, can you ever do a video about any time that you got pulled over while doing a review? I'm just curious if you have any great stories. Keep up the good job buddy. Love your channel.

This car is the reason I bought a 2016 F165. What is a F165 you are thinking? It is a F150 with 2.7 ecoboost v6. 2.7 x 61 cuin = 164.7 round up to 165 cuin. I could not afford this car when I was 16.

Even better than a Grand National is the 1989 Turbo Trans Am. Handled better, was quicker and more aerodynamic in factory trim. I own both👍🏼👍🏼

I had a 1986 T-type white. I changed the chip, put a scoop in the front valance, changed the air filter and a few other cosmetic changes. It would spin the tires at 40 mph when downshifting. The fastest car I ever owned. Had it 4 years and it never saw rain or snow in NY. Only made 1987 of them. Saddest day in my life when I sold it.

I almost got one back in 2016. Same year as this one. 40k miles.. one owner (some old lady).. $17k. Landed up getting a 2016 FiST.. which I just swapped for a Veloster N... But I’ll always wonder about that GN and will always have a huge place in my heart for the little ST

The 87 GN drivetrain produced so much power and low end torque it was ridiculous. With bigger/stickier tires you could smoke anything. Total cost: $100
