I remember reading a review about this in one of the car magazines back in 1987. The reviewer said something like "the car to buy if you're Darth Vader."

It's a really nice car but it is what is. Don't get the hype and people paying ridiculous amounts for something that's not really that hard to build or whatever.

This car stopped everyone in their tracks! I like how it only came in 3 colors. Black.. Black and Black!

That's not the air intake. It's the air scoop for the intercooler. You show very clearly the uncovered air filter. There is a cold air intake box you can get that vents air in from a replacement lower chin spoiler but this car does not have it.

I remember when cars and vans had slots for change. My mothers 1988 Dodge Caravan had one only you would push down on the slot to insert or remove change. This is a very cool car.

That's called a spid label and it's not always in the trunk. Doug is the type of guy that is GM illiterate.

My youngest brother had one of these and he put the Canadian chip in it. He would have 3 friends inside and he would have it pegged on the speedo. The only thing that could pass him was the latest Z28 with a V8.

There are no muscle cars in the 80s, let alone American. No 6 cylinders are "muscle" surely. Get it together, buddy. Start reviewing some real muscle cars and get off the bandwagon budget cars.

I love them boxy cars of the '70s and 80's. The car was really a car, not a computer on wheels.

Regan passed a law that limited speedometers to 85 to try and keep kids from speeding they thought if you didn’t know how fast you were going they wouldn’t try so all spedos in cars back then went to 85 in every car and a funny fact when the filmed back to the future they had to build a custom Speedo face to go to 95 so you could see they were going 88 however in the actual movie car the speedo only went to 85 and you can see it in some shots

I don't have a problem with the 80-MPH speedometer. If you are doing 90, I can attest that you should be watching the road, brother....

I had a buddy that had one back then. It was a beast, and yes he smoked Vetts regularly. G.M definitely made the Buick guys lie about the numbers.

Would it be good to invest in modern day logos, emblems, and manuals, and save them like 30 years and sell them then?

Back in the day,,,,these cars were quick. They were very easy to tune,,,and adding a set of sticky tires made them great drag racing machines.Bone stock my buddies ran 13.10 back in 1987 with a set of tires and maybe a cold air intake. Flying for that time period!

I used to race GN's on the service drive while cruisin gratiot back in the day. I had a monte ss with a zz3 crate engine dropped in, TCI 700r4 and AC baby. I used to edge out GN's everytime. I built my car to beat mustangs. These late 80s early 90s GT's pissed me off. My Monte was cousins with the Grand National. Beautiful car.

This car was perfectly suited for Burt Reynolds. It reminds me of a time when men were men and women actually admitted that they liked their men to be masculine.
