Back in the mid-1980′s, if you wanted a real muscle car you had but one choice; the Buick Grand Nationals built from 1984-1987. These machines were unconventional to say the least and at first buyers didn’t know what to make of them. You see the Grand National was based on Buick’s mundane Regal sedan, a car that was about as exciting as toast. Then there was the issue of the turbocharged six-cylinder engine as opposed to a rip-snorting V8, a major no-no in the muscle car world. However once enthusiasts got a taste of the Grand National’s performance, they dove in with both feet and in the process made it one of the baddest cars ever to come out of Detroit.
