  • I've had three of these beauties the fastest one I had was a 1987 Regal T type with 400 horsepower to the wheels I put a te44 turbo on it and a front mount intercooler with a bunch of other upgrades the only problem I had with it is my mass flow air sensor used to go out like once every two months lol on the streets these things were Untouchable in the early 2000s the Camaro SS was the only car that gave me problems and the Trans Am WS6 when they where new! Of course two out of three of them got stolen but I'll get another one one day

  • Doug do your research when describing the pre set buttons on the radio. If you depress both buttons at the same time you have an extra radio station pre set. You can do that with buttons one and two, two and three, and three and four. So rather than like you stated four radio pre sets you actually have seven. All these GM radios will function like that.

  • Doug, Doug, Doug... I love your videos, but PLEASE do just an ounce of research to keep everyone from going nuts. It may surprise you to learn this, but IT-vision's parent company, "Google", makes a thing called a "search engine" that is quite handy in situations like this. Here's how it works: if you don't know something, you can type the name of the thing into a little box and then a minute later you'll know it. Kind of like how Trinity learned how to fly a helicopter in The Matrix, but you need to read a little for it to work. So anyway, EVERY car guy over a certain age knows what "Body by Fisher" is. And so does "Google", by way of "Wikipedia", a popular online reference site: "Fisher Body was an automobile coachbuilder founded by the Fisher brothers in 1908 in Detroit, Michigan. It had been a division of General Motors for many years... The name and its iconic "Body by Fisher" logo were well known to the public [*ahem*], as General Motors vehicles displayed a "Body by Fisher" emblem on their door sill plates until the mid-1990s." Seriously. 30 seconds on your phone will save you from countless people complaining.

  • Doug is the type of guy to irritate me so bad with his misinformation that I have to use my wife's IT-vision account to make the following comment: 6.7 seconds? Where is this number from? 2/10 in acceleration? You call the GMC Typhoon fast, but this is slow? The Buick GN's main strength was its acceleration. Here are facts: -On April 1986, Car and Driver clocked the 1986 Buick Grand National at 4.9 seconds from 0-60mph. The 1/4 mile was tested at 13.9 seconds at 98mph. It was a cool spring, so the car performed exceptionally well. -On June 1987, Road and Track stated the following "Less than 6.0 seconds after you mashed the throttle, you will be going 60mph. If you're on a drag strip and keep your foot down, come 14.0 sec you'll have covered the quarter mile and be traveling 105mph.... And that was a gentle run." Note the words "gentle run." This test was on a hot summer day. -The GNX had mild modifications by ASC McLaren. A new turbo with ceramic compressor wheel, mildly ported heads, an upgraded intercooler, updated ROM chip, and revised suspension. Boost was only 1PSI higher in first and second gear. So with these mild modifications, a GN goes from 6.7 seconds to world supercar beater in 0-60? -The 1989 Turbo Trans Am was one of the fastest factory Trans Ams ever. This was a mildly modified GN engine. On June 1989, Car and Driver clocked the 1989 Turbo Trans Am at 4.6 seconds from 0-60mph. Not until a decade later, the factory LS1 Trans Ams finally got to that level of performance. -The TH200-4R was an exceptional automatic transmission; boost was never lost. If you tested the this example of the GN yourself, then two things are happening: 1. You clearly do not know how to launch the car. Brake boost to 1600rpm and release. 2. The car is in dire need of new valve springs in the heads, so the boosted air actually enters the intake valve of each cylinder. This is a commonly neglected maintenance issue. Now I am off to being an old guy without a IT-vision account.

  • 0-60 is actually 4.9 sec. It is quick. If you took off from a stop throttle braking first, you'd feel that... spinning its tires into 2nd gear. The best part of these is you could get them to 750hp with bolt-ons... and it was reliable. Ask me how I know. I had 4 of these Turbo Buicks and the last one got into the mid 10's @ 135 on street tires. And the engine was just as quiet. God's hand shoving you in the back.

  • It's always surprising how many people don't know the reason behind the 85 MPH speedo. That was a federal law at the time. Also you can tell Doug doesnt drive old cars often because the position of the manual mirrors is extremely typical. Its uncommon for any car with manual mirrors of that era to have the. In a different spot. Even my 89 Maserati had them that way.

  • At 14:53 on the left-hand side of the screen, it shows 95.7 WWMJ (Maine), which was my favorite radio station when I was a kid. I started listening to it in 1987 when I was 12, and when the Grand National in this video was brand new. It was an "oldies" station ('50s and '60 rock and roll) with an awesome DJ by the name of "Mighty" John Marshall. He brought his own stack of records to work with him each night, so the song selections during his shift were far wider than when he wasn't working. I used to listen every night when he was working, with a blank tape in my boombox ready to record songs I liked. Around the same time, I started hanging out with Tom, who was in my 6th grade class. He was into cars and thought the Grand National was awesome. There was one that drove around town and whenever we saw it he made a big fuss over it. I didn't see the appeal. It had a typical boxy '80s family car body style. I understood that it was fast, but it was still boring looking. Tom and I agreed on most things, i.e., we both liked '60s and early '70s muscle cars and pony cars, plus Corvettes and exotic sports cars from companies such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Porsche, but he was never able to convince me that the Grand National was cool. Any car can be made to go fast, but it takes exceptional talent to design a good-looking body style, and nothing GM made in the late '80s looked good (the C4 Corvette was their best looking car, but it was a downgrade from the C2 and C3; the third-generation Camaros and Firebirds looked okay, but they were downgrades from first- and second-generation). Nothing Ford or Chrysler made in the late '80s looked good either. For that matter, no car manufacturer on Earth has designed a really good-looking car since the 1970s.

  • You guys dont know Jack, LOl you watch fast and furious or listen to your uncles bulshit stories, the Gran national was quick but the 89 trans am turbo was quicker, and top speed all the trans ams with 305 tpi or 350s were faster as far as hitting top end , the grand national was good for maybe 115, it just got theyre quicker then most but a vette was good for 145 the same for the iroc z and the trans ams, you little school kids need schooled on the facts, and then probably none of you ever heard of the firehawk firebird, LOl 375 factory horsepower with a race suspension, LOl, when you kiddies get educated on the facts talk to Me.

    • @You Can't Unhear This The BMW E28 was okay looking and so was the Mercedes W126, though it was introduced in '79 so it doesn't count as being designed in the '80s or later. The E29 was almost exactly the same body style as the E12, introduced in 1972, so it doesn't really count either. For that matter, the Mercedes W126 was almost the same body style as the W116, which was also introduced in 1972, which even further removes it from the 1980s. Second-generation Mazda RX-7s were okay looking but looked like a cheap knockoff of a Porsche 924 (or 928, 944, or 968), which was a mid-1970s body style. Third-generation RX-7s (introduced in 1992) were ugly as homemade shoes. They had that horrible melted look which was typical of 1990s body styles, and which was even worse than the boxy '80s body styles. The original Lexus (LS400) was a boring design, and not long after it was introduced, the Camry was restyled to look very similar to it. Me saying that _every_ body style designed in the '80s or later was ugly, was a bit of hyperbole. There were a lot of _okay_ looking body styles that were designed in the '80s, but as you get into the 1990s, it's harder for me to find ones that were even okay looking, and the 2000s and 2010s model years were even worse. I expect the 2020s to continue the downward spiral.

    • MaximRecoil I’d argue that the Europeans were on top of their game in the 80s and 90s (BMW e28, Mercedes W126, etc), and the Japanese in the early 90s (Lexus LS, Mazda RX7, etc). But the US? Anything after the fuel crisis was just pathetic.

    • _Every_ car designed in the '80s or later is ugly. That doesn't include cars whose body styles were still being manufactured in the '80s but were designed earlier, such as the Ferrari 308 (introduced in 1975), Porsche 911 (introduced in 1963), etc.

  • On September 1, 1979 in a regulation that also regulated speedometer and odometer accuracy, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) required speedometers to have special emphasis on the number 55 and a maximum speed of 85mph (140km/h).

    mdmbkrmdmbkr12 giorni fa
  • In the 70's and '80s, the government federally mandated 85 mile per hour speedometers. You literally could not get one that read beyond 85mph. And if it did have hash marks beyond 85, there were no numbers.

His current grade scale has multiple super cars/sports cars. 5 seconds is family sedan territory compared to today's cars. They were incredible cars. They still are! But on a scale where a Viper or GT is getting a 8-9 on the acceleration scale, I'd say a 2 is fair for a buick GN

  • There was a federal rule in the 80's that cars could only have speedometers that went to 85mph. It, and the orange highlighted 55mph (national speed limit at the time) were devised as a fuel saving measure. The thinking being that people would drive slower if the speedometer only went to 85...??? Obviously this didn't work at all and was abandoned.

    OnTheRocksOnTheRocks14 giorni fa
    • It worked more than people are willing to admit these days, though. Plus the overall downward pressure on speed from the national speed limit also helped (particularly on freeways) with dynamic loading of road surfaces and bridges, which helped stretch their lifespans a bit.

      Robert PajkovskiRobert Pajkovski6 giorni fa
    • The acceleration score is a fixed scale for 0-60 MPH times for all years, which favors today's 500+HP cars with AWD and launch control. Even the Ferraris and Lambos of the 70's and 80s get low scores. In the 80s it was a BIG deal to hit 6.0 seconds for a car's 0-60 time. Today we got a bunch that hit 60 in under 3 seconds. The Doug Score for Acceleration: Under 3.0 sec = 10 3.0 - 3.5 sec = 9 3.5 - 4.0 sec = 8 4.0 - 4.5 sec = 7 4.5 - 5.0 sec = 6 5.0 - 5.5 sec = 5 5.5 - 6.0 sec = 4 6.0 - 6.5 sec = 3 6.5 - 7.0 sec = 2 ( the GN was 6.7 ) Over 7.0 sec = 1

    • @Nathan McDonald It was fast. I do not know where Doug is getting his numbers from. Even Road and Track stated that it did 0-60 in less than 6 seconds with a soft launch (June 1987 issue). Car and Driver tested it at 4.9 seconds in April of 1986. The poorest 0-60 test was Motor Trend in August 1987. It was a hot August day and the GN still did 0-60 in 6.1 seconds. These cars were not good handlers and had poor braking (rear drums), but acceleration was its forte. Doug is misinformed to say the least.

On the April 1986 issue of Car and Drive, the 1986 Buick Grand National was clocked in at 4.9 seconds 0-60mph. A variation of the same exact motor was used in the 1989 Turbo Trans Am. That car was clocked in at 4.6 seconds 0-60mph on the June 1989 issue of Car and Driver. The GNX was not a high performance version of the Grand National. It was more of the ultimate sign off to the Grand National. It only had a modified turbo with a ceramic compressor wheel, upgraded intercooler with higher fin pitch, ported heads, reprogrammed ROM chip, and a modified suspension. You cannot go from 0-60 in 6.7 seconds to a Lamborghini killer with those mild performance modifications. I had to use my wife's IT-vision account because I do not have one. It takes a lot to "irk" me and Doug did it with his 2/10 in acceleration. I had to correct his misinformation.

    • 0-60 was actually a verified and repeatable 4.9 sec. It was quick!

    • By todays standards 6 sec 0-60 is pretty standard, most fullsize pickups will do it faster now. I do agree that in 1987 though that was super impressive.

  • Oil change at 7500 miles in 1980’s with the crappy oil then? No wonder cars rarely made it over 100K miles.
