I was out for a short period of time, before you must have showed up. Had a family emergency and had to bail out on you guys Crying or Very sad


I may have to change my screen name to "bad turbo zac" lol!







1987 Buick Grand National. 3.8L "Turbo" V6. BFR Automatic transmission, stock 8.5" rear axle. Engine has now about 400 miles on it, its a fresh rebuild from R&R Performance in Milwaukee (Dr. GN). It has old Pitbull chip, the stock one is long gone. Pitbull = junk.

Its not a perfect car by any means, but it has a lot of potential. 98% of the interior is original and in good shape. I'm going to add a tri-pillar pod to the A-pillar for my oil psi, water temp, and boost gauges. A couple other minor interior concerns need to be addressed, but nothing that has to be done right away.

As for the exterior, the car has an older repaint. There's a few scratches that need attention, I need to paint the rear bumper fillers, and go postal with an exterior detail. The car looks good from 10 ft away, but when you're right up on it you can see the imperfections. I know, I know, I'm anal Smile Need to replace the trans pan gasket for a fluid leak, but other than fixing that, and the exhaust that hits the floorpan, its mostly cosmetics that need to be done.

When I have the car up to my standards, I'll post pics of the finished product.

We certainly have a nice share of Buicks, but secretly I had been hoping for another mopar. Sad
