    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.

    Unsubbed... Seriously. Dude, you can't rank older cars by modern standards.

  • Unpopular Popular Opinion

    I'm making this comment before I even watch the video. If Doug ranks cool factor lower than 8, speed lower than 7,style lower than 9, value lower than 10, and functionality lower than 8,I'm unsubbing. I'm so serious. If this gets an overall score less than 70, I'm telling CNclip not to suggest this channel. Not kidding. This is a classic exotic supercar.

    The "intake" at the bottom is cooling to the intercooler and radiator. The air filter is visible on the driver's side of the engine bay, behind the headlight. Also, that listing of national radio stations might be the most hilarious quirk that Doug has ever unearthed.

    "just to save 7cents on the individual seatbelt buckles"
    yeah, save those 7cents times 4 for all the seats in the car. then save those 24 cents on 10 million cars you make, with all those brands in the company and you have saved the annual bonus for a chairman back in the 80s.

    This is one of my favorite shows on You Tube....However, I rarely agree with the Doug Score on anything older than 10 years old.....And on this, that 0-60 time is way off....But 75% of the time he on point. The Grand National was faster than the Vette but due to Marketing and GMs "Whatever" The numbers were incorrect...Real Gear Heads know what I am talking about.

    A sleeper? A Grand National? Lmao. In 1984-87 maybe, but the hurtin those all black cars put on everyone soon made it the icon it is. You want a sleeper? You could get the same engine/transmission/3.42 geared rear (with G80 posi option) in ANY Regal in 1987. From The WE4 Turbo-T factory lightweight, to a Turbo Limited with bench seat/column shift and vinyl half roof....and in ANY color. I have my grandfather's 1987 Turbo, in silver metallic, bench seat, column shift, no power options (=lightweight). And no, it is not original. But you wouldn't know how big the turbo is, how much boost it is tuned to, and you won't see the huge amount of suspension mods underneath what looks like an old man's Sunday churchmobile. If you're ever in MA, look up Cotton's Performance. But honestly, I don't know why I'm wasting time trying to educate someone who laughs and giggles when he spools the turbo, yet rates the acceleration at 2.

    A "2" on acceleration? This car is still considered one of the fastest production cars ever and it gets a 2 out of 10 for acceleration. If Doug had the GNX version, it might have gotten a 3 out of 10.

    What a joke....

    Tito drove us to Rutt’s Hut to get hotdogs for the whole shop in his dad’s Grand National. He drove it like a maniac and it was the fastest car/driver combo I’ve ever been in. He was changing lanes, in traffic, like threading a needle! God Speed, Tito. GodSpeed!

    The small touches like not really properly explaining the concept of Fisher Body are what make these videos silly, and not particularly in a charming way. Nice review, Jerry.

    I bought one brand new in 87. It definitely went a hell of a lot faster than 6.7 to 60. More like very low 5s on average. When I put a stage 2 kit on my car there was no stopping my car. I saw a lot of much more expensive cars in my rear view mirror. I think Doug may be inhaling something other than exhaust.

    Is this guy trying to be obnoxious or is that his normal personality? The annoyance level this man is able to produce in a single 25-minute video is remarkable. I actually congratulated myself for enduring the entire lenght of the footage. It's a pity, realy. The content is quite interesting and could be very informative, if only he had done his homework. But he is so unlikable, and so unprepared, he's just churning out missinformations one after antoher. And he's trying SO hard to come up with "witty" comments about the 80s or about the manufacturer, but unfortunalty for him, he would not be able to recognize a witticism if it hit him in his stupid face. And what's with the outfit? Did he deliberatly dress like a douchebag or it's another one of his unsuccesfull "jokes"?
