Pros

It's a Turbo Regal. Fast. Bad to the Bone

Cons

People who don't know what it is, think it's a Monte Carlo.

Can Put A Whuppin' On Most High Dollar Cars & Still Get The Grocery's — I absolutely Love this car. I get compliments all the time. To the avereage "Joe" they think it's not fast, I mean come on, it's a Buick for crying out loud!!! I can drive this car around town or on a road trip with no problems & still get decent gas mileage, with the a/c on.

Family Car The Owns — This is a classic G-body with a ladder frame and 4 link rear suspension. The car handles OK but what's nice is that it's very predictable at the limit. It can smoke the tires for days and you have the feeling of complete control. I have seating for 6 people becuase it has a column shifter.

1987 Buick Regal Limited — such an amazing car, we've had a ton in the family, it's really quick if you have the 5.0, and it's reliable and great for a daily driver. if you had this car as your first, your parent's wouldn't have to worry about your saftey

Pros

About everything is a positive on one of these turbo cars.  They had excellent engineering from the factory and can take a real beating.

Cons

Going down the road, behind the wheel just doesn't feel very sporty.  It's a straight line car and that's it.

The Little Engine That Could..... — This was not a Grand National. It was a WE4, which in laymens terms, meant it had everything a GN would have minus the badges. If you have never ridden or driven one of the amazing little turbo 6's, you should do so before you die. They are nothing short of amazing and I will have another one before I'm done.

automatic only, bad handling

1987 Buick Regal Grand National — The baddest,blackest buick ever and the last of Buicks muscle cars. With its turbo V-6 it will put most V8s to shame.It was faster than the 1987 corvette which is why it was discontiued cause its a big NO to have something thats faster than a Vette.

keeping the miles down

Buick's; Bad To The Bone! — Fun to drive with looks and that could kill. Not you your everyday V6, this V6 with 3.8 turbo pushes 245 horses stock. 1987 was an end of an era for the G-bodys and Buick went out with a bang the Regal Grand National. Believe me once you drive one of these you'll want one too.

It's A Grand National Need I Say More ? — It's really HARD on tires & the speedometer only goes up to 85 mph, its useless after 5 sec. at full throttle.
