    The Buick Grand National is the ultimate 1980s muscle car. Today I'm reviewing the Grand National to show you why the Buick Grand National is special -- and I'm driving the Grand National, and I'm taking you on a tour of the Grand National's quirks and features.

    I can only imagine an old beefy guy with a mustache and sports coat driving this car... per 80s action movies.

    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....

    doug didn't do a lot of homework on this one. Speedo for instance...wasn't that a federal mandate to max at 85?

    Fisher body was the gm plant in Columbus OH. They made those parts and my dad worked there for 33 years. Eventually it was Fisher guide then a bunch of other names but originally a gm plant.

    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.

    Ah, 1980s GM...yep, I remember it well. All of my extended family members worked for them and I remember all the things like the seatbelt buckles saying GM on them. I remember everyone in the family only bought GM cars. Anyway, this car looks like it would’ve awesome to have during that era for sure

    1980's and muscle cars should never be used in the same sentence. And.....this Buick is FUGLY! I wouldn't want to be seen in one.

    Such a beautiful machine. I drove around in my 80 cutlass brougham in 93 being 17 years old only wishing I could have one of these.
