New school vs old school

I don't know if this has been asked but here it goes,

1987 Buick Grand National

VS

2013 RS Camaro

Just curious what you guys think.

I don't think of an '87 as old school, but I'd still opt for the Camaro. 80s GMs were rustbuckets around here.

Funny you brought up this thread. Been thinking about getting a 87 Grand National myself. My buddy had one in the service and would typically beat up on my old 5.0 mustang with it. The problem is trying to find one that hasn't been beat to hell.

I would take an 87 GN.


had an 85 Monte SS new,
black grey interior.

The GN back then was a rocket
compared to the Monte SS !

Back then they were known for being faster than the Vette's.

Oh man do I feel old, an 87 is considered old school now a days. But if you think about it, that was 26 years ago. Back in 1987 that would have been a 1961 year car.

To answer you question though, is this RS an SS? If so, then I'd take the 2013 Camaro.

And back in '87, my " old school " car was a 61 Impala bubbletop.

Guess I need to change with the times .

Seen one run at my local 1/8 mile years ago he was running about 2tenths faster than I was running in my m6 when it was bone stock with 30day tags still on it, and I was also not use to the car then ethier, trapped 1mph faster than me, I would say its a drivers race, if his was stock like he said.

Hard to find stock GN/GNX anymore. It doesn't take a whole lot to make them really fast. I'll guess the Buick has got this one.

I owned an '87 about 10 years ago. Loved that car, so I'll take the Turbo Buick any day!

Our 86 GN just went 9.98 at 138 on Wednesday night. Stock cubed 3.8 and still looks stock. Be careful who you pick on.

Nice

Gotta love the torque those little 3.8's make!

LOL, I remember back in the day telling this dude the fastest production car was based on the Buick Regal... He refused to believe me and thought I was full of s**t. I couldn't think of the name Grand National at the time and all I could think of was Buick Regal. Funny!
