My Dad Bought 1 Back In 1987 Brand New When He Was In Highschool And We Still Haveit. — My dad says that this car has to be the greatest car that he has ever owned. It has a 3.8L turbo V8 engine under the hood. Gas, 2dr. Black, hardtop (no T-top) has been in storage for a while but should run great when we get it out. He used to drag race it in raceway park, he used to do real good.

Pros: It is amazing, it has tons of power to it.

Cons: ----------

The Most Prolific Car To Ever Come Out Of Detroit — You will fall in love with Grand Nationals from the moment you see the powerful coupe to the second you step on the gas.The 3.8l turbo will slam you back into your seats.These cars were built for 1/4 mile racing and all out speed on the roads.Solidly built and easy to keep in top running cond.

The Bees Knees — In their day, Grand Nationals terrorized tracks from Epping to Englishtown, Pomona to Portland and everywhere in between. Buick delivered 20,193 Grand Nationals in 1987. The Buick was faster than almost all cars built in 1987..... Black Air..... (GN, GNX, T-Type)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything..

Cons: None..

Overall:

Fun Collector Car — This car is smooth and easy to drive. This car accelerates well but since it was the fastest production car of the 1980s (even including the Corvette) it should. This car tends to draw a crowd at car shows. This model has been called the Darth Vader of cars. It has 60K miles.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun car to drive and own. This car gets 25 mpg on the road. Turns peoples heads when they see it.

Cons: Not practical if you cannot store it securely. Not good except as a collector car.
