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.

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

I'll be completely honest, the Buick Grand national was not the 80s hot rod muscle car, that title does go to the Mustang. But the Grand national always did impress me. The first time I ran into one it came up behind me I was in my 87 5.0 and I couldn't shake it he stayed right on my ass. And I was like what the hell is that.. I let him get up beside me and I was like damn those things are badass.. until I had my supercharger put in then everything changed.. LoL seein the 80s for people on the street nitrous was big. Then one night just started to get more expensive. It wasn't the cheap route to go. That's what everyone started big on the superchargers. Then after about 2010 turbo started getting big. Like I still have nitrous but I use it as a scramble button..

In the 80's speedometers were government mandated to be capped at 85 mph. I have an 86 Corvette with a digital speedometer on it and it also only goes up to 85. You'll see the same in most 80's cars.

I've been a car guy since I was in high school in the late 80s. I've been in, and owned (and continue to own) fast cars. There's been a handful of cars that, in that 30 year period, have actually scared me- a friend's 1987 T Type Buick would be that car. He bought a trashed 1987 GN and scavenged it for parts. It was modified with a bunch of bolt ons and an upgraded Garrett hybrid T3/4 turbo. He would hammer it in 4th, it would downshift into 2nd and just took off!! That's assuming it wasn't wet out, or, he had limited traction. I just remember sitting over the transmission hump in the back seat and holding on for dear life!! Thank you for bringing me back, Doug!!

Strange that the logo's on the wheels are different than on the side badges. On the wheels the arrow is behind the 6 and in front of the 6 on the side....

Not just concert sound, but concert sound 2. This was a upgrade from concert sound 1, n they wanted to let you know it!!😂😂😂wtf, I found that to be funny af n idk why.
4.9 to 60 13.7-14.1 1/4 at 103mph! That's from a stock grand national in 1987 with an outside temp of around 60 degrees The GNX was even faster

I lost a lot of street races to slightly modded grand nationals back in the day. I had a Monte Carlo SS with a 327 motor with 375hp which was pretty loud and grand nationals were very quiet and stealthy. I drove a modded one and it actually scared me a little because of the turbo lag but it is a fun car, thanks for the interesting review.

Saw a bunch of comments about the Monte Carlo SS, I drove both of those cars when they were new and the Monte Carlo was not even close. The GN, especially the GNX was hands down the quickest car American car of the 80s. The T-type regal was the sleeper of the bunch. But man those were great cars.

Automakers used speedos that only went to 85 in this era because the EPA gave them a 'bonus' to their mileage rating for the car.

This was one of my favorite cars at the time , i wanted one of these back in the 90’s when i was in high school. If you get a chance you should try to get a 1994-96 Chevy Impala SS which was such a great car too.

80’s 5.0 mustangs only went to 85mph on the speedo too. Until ‘89 anyway(140mph). Always thought that was funny.
