Not all of them were "Grand Nationals". They made other less conspicuous models which had the exact same drivetrain. Definitely a wolf in sheeps clothing....

Didn't they make a turbo Regal back in the mid 80's. Who would've thunk Grandpas car would be a sleeper.

Yep, the one I owned was a T-Type and it actually was made to look like a Grand National minus the badges, seats, wheels and rear spoiler. Option code WE4....only 1547 were produced.

It's a shame that GM will never make nice Buicks because they'd compete with Cadillac. If they made a modern-day GNX, I think I'd take out another loan.

Well you better call your bank because they are making a GNX with a twin turbo 3.6. They are also making GN's with the turbo 2.0. I dont think it will look like a muscle car the way the old GNX did but it will be fast. Its going to be built on the new ATS/Camaro platform as well. Hoping it will at least be a coupe but it probably will end up being a sedan.

All the pics I see look like a regular run-of-the-mill sedan. If that's the case, I'd rather slam my junk in a sliding glass door.

Been watching this car, nicely modded and appears to be in good condition.

I wild love a grand national...or a turbo regal. Either one would be fine with me.
