1978 Buick Regal 2-Door CoupeReview

10 Seconds Of Hang On — Eat up any small block V-8 in the 1/4 mile. Bad on head gaskets. Finally prefected with the introduction of the Grand National in 1984. It's a great "sleeper", most people get caught off guard, thinking it's grandma's grocery getter.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: whiplash

Cons: headgaskets
