"Doug Score" acceleration 2/10 for the GN? I guess this is non-linear? Oh wait, Oops - the Lamborghini Countach (a car with similar if not worse straight line performance depending on year, oddly noted in this review) is 6/10 for the "doug score" so it turns out the scoring is utterly arbitrary and has very little meaning.

Dream car. My first love was a 94 Century V6. Relaxing and comfy but with sneaky speed.

One of the best looking American cars of that era, way better than nineties cars. And some of the best looking factory wheels ever

wouldn´t call turbo-ed v6s´ common, even now... damn nice car nevertheless, would love to have a go in it :) also: concert sound!^^ recently bought a 97 SLK with about 75k miles...highly tuned (figured that after signing) and with a bose system (figured that while testing)...god, I honestly close to love this thing...bought it as a winter car :p as for the label, yes, you can see a similar thing in one of my cars (the left rear brake light encasing to be precise)...made in hethel, summer 2001 ;) and a nice el camino at around 22:00, isn´t it?

It may be a wet dream, but they should bring back the Grand National. The present Regal GS, in my opinion looks pretty nice. Supposedly the 3.6 liter V6 is very good and produces 310 horsepower. Slap on a couple turbos and I'm betting at least 425 horsepower. Borrow the handling and suspension and breaking system from the Camaro SS, bigger wheels,fatter tires, flare out some fenders,add some uncheesy ground effects,upgrade the interior a bit, and that should do it. They CAN do it,and should.

Dude, you have to stop, hold your foot on the brake, make sure shift is in D not overdrive, let the engine turbo spool up, then blast off... its a whole another animal when drive it that way, I know because I have the 1987 GNX model number 157 out of 447! Mine will slide sideways when it catches 2nd gear and fishtail down the road... have fun

I bought a 87 Gr Nat'l on December 17, 2007 from Hanson Buick on Lawrenceville Hwy & 285 in Atlanta. I sold it in March 2002 to get funds to start my business, otherwise I would still own it. So, I can say with some authority, that this guy is a wanker. Nothing more to say. Why ANYONE would subscribe to this channel is beyond me. The DeMuro name will remain etched into my brain for videos NOT to watch.

In it's day that was THE most bada@ car. It ceased production because Buick switched all their cars to front wheel drive and then there wasn't a front wheel drive transmission that could take the torque the STRONG motor put out.

Dude. If you're going to review 1980s cars, you need to educate yourself on the federally mandated 85 mph speedometers. In 1979, the Nixon era federal DOT got a law passed requiring speedometers to be limited to 85 mph. I believe it took effect for the 1980 model year. The idea was that higher reading speedometers encouraged more speeding. There was a lot of hooting about how ludicrous that was. In 1981 under the Reagan era, that law was repealed. But by then, everyone had lots of 85 mph mechanisms, and such a commitment to it that when Buick first came out with a digital speedo, it would flash "85" above that speed even though the display was capable of three digits. Also, Fisher Body was actually a division of General Motors, and the entrance was labeled that way for a quality "coachbuilt" sounding impression. Originally an actual coach building firm started in 1908, it was acquired by GM. I don't know if they still have it like that, but it was NOT limited to the 80s. It was that way over many years and the Fisher logo on the door sills only went away sometime in the 1990s.

I had a 84 back in the day. All yellow, no bells or whistles, looked like a regular regal until pedal was pressed. Thing had a jet under hood...
