AJ’s “Badass Friday” Car of the Day: 1986 Buick Grand National Coupe

AJ’s “Badass Friday” Car of the Day: 1986 Buick Grand National Coupe

Car:  Buick Grand National Coupe

Year: 1986

What makes it special: In February 1982, the Regal Grand National debuted, which was named for the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series, the “Grand National” term was part of the Cup series nomenclature until 1986. Buick had won the Manufacturers Cup in 1981 and 1982, and wanted to capitalize on its success: “What wins on Sunday, sells on Monday”. All started out as charcoal gray Regals that were shipped off to a subcontractor for finishing.

What made it famous: With a turbocharged V6 under the hood that helped gain quicker accelerations and a standard black paint job that made the design of the Grand National more intimidating, this car is definitely considered as one of the true muscle cars during its heyday. In 1986, Buick added in an air-to-air intercooler and tweaked the boost output to net the 3.8 liter V6 an extra 35 horsepower and 30 pound-feet of torque. The extra power pushed the Grand National to a new height, hitting 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and clearing a 1/4-mile in just 13.7 ticks of the second hand. 

Why I would want one: I remember when these first hit the streets, they had such an incredible street cred that everyone wanted one. They were like the bad boy that just rode into town.

Fun fact: People often referred to the Grand National as the “Darth Buick,” as an nod to the all-black wearing, sinister bad guy from the famed “Star Wars” movie series.

Financial Disaster in Los Angeles

Has the NFL made a fatal mistake letting two franchises move to Los Angeles? So far, the financial situation there, seems to indicate that they have. Plus, John Mara’s public comments about Odell Beckham Jr. were stupid, and Bill Belichick finally shows some emotion while talking about Lawrence Taylor.

AJ’s Car of the Day: 1968 Chevrolet Camaro R/S Super-Sport Coupe

AJ’s Car of the Day: 1968 Chevrolet Camaro R/S Super-Sport Coupe

Car: Chevrolet Camaro R/S Super-Sport Coupe

Year: 1968

What makes it special: The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro appeared in dealerships on September 29, 1966 for the 1967 model year on a brand-new GM F-body platform and was available as a 2-door, 2+2 seat, hardtop or convertible, with the choice of either a straight-6 or V8. The first-generation Camaro was built through the 1969 model year.

What made it famous: The styling of the 1968 Camaro was very similar to the 1967 design. With the introduction of Astro Ventilation, a fresh-air-inlet system, the side vent windows were deleted. Side marker lights were added on the front and rear fenders which was a government requirement for all 1968 vehicles. It also had a more pointed front grille and divided rear taillights. The front running lights on non-RS models were also changed from circular to oval. The big block SS models received chrome hood inserts that imitated velocity stacks. The shock absorber mounting was staggered to resolve wheel hop issues and higher performance models received multi-leaf rear springs instead of single-leaf units.The Rally Sport, or RS was an appearance package that included hidden headlights, revised taillights with back-up lights under the rear bumper, RS badging, and exterior bright trim. It was available on any model. The Super-Sport, or SS performance package consisted of a 350 cu in or 396 cu in V8’s and chassis upgrades for better handling and to deal with the additional power. The SS featured non-functional air inlets on the hood, special striping, and SS badging, and the Z28 appeared in Camaro brochures. The 427 cu in was not available as a Regular Production Option.

Why I would want one: Never had a Camaro…yet. But I’d definitely go with the First-Gen when I do.

Fun fact: Several dealers, such as Baldwin-Motion, Dana, and Yenko, offered the 427 as a dealer-installed replacement for the factory-supplied 396 cu in engine.
