I remember when the Grand National came out and unless you were into cars, there wasn't much hype or talk about them.There were only about 30,000 sold between 1982 and 1987. The GNX is even rarer with only 547 models produced, all in 1987. They would be the real collectibles.

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 YouTube'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 Youtube 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 Youtube 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 them 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 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.

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).

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.

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.

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
