Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Under 2000 T Types made in 1986, and is essentially a Grand National as a different trim package.

This is a non-smoker hardtop car with 152000 kms (95000 miles) that includes power windows, power door locks, A/C, electronic touch climate control, and cruise control as factory options. Has a CD Player from a Le Sabre that keeps the stock look. It's a clean car inside and out, that's comfortable, handles great, and plenty of power from the turbocharged and intercooled V6 when you need it. Runs and drives great, and maintenance is all up to date with new fluids, new spark plugs, and new spark plug wires. Have receipts/records as well. It has brand new roof rail seals installed, and brand new outer door sills are included with the car (will probably install before pick-up). Center caps, spare shifter handle, and some other miscellaneous stuff is also included. *Seat cover on driver's seat in interior picture for protection.

There are some bolt-on modifications such as: Larger Precision turbo, 3" Downpipe to Hi-flow Cat to 3" exhaust with Flowmaster Mufflers, T/A Performance Competition headers, 57lb Siemens Fuel Injectors, Walbro 340 fuel pump with hotwire kit, custom braided #6 fuel return line, aluminum gas tank, Precision Front Mount Intercooler, GSCA Valve Springs, 204/214 non-roller cam, 3000 Stall D6 lock-up converter with a manual switch, Deep transmission pan, line-lock brake kit, TurboTweak chip, Scanmaster 2.0, Bilstein Shocks, Eibach Springs, Founders Performance rear lower control arms, rad support brace, and Chassis bracing behind rear-seat. Stock engine block with ported stock heads, and stock 8.5" posi rear-end with T/A Performance Girdle.
Engine, transmission, and rear end are numbers matching to the car.
Engine was rebuilt in 2001, and transmission was rebuilt in 2004 according to previous owner.

Currently sitting at 16psi of boost on 94 Octane. Plenty fast, and also easy to drive. Could use better tires since I have cheap ones on there due to the other ones becoming too worn. Some oil likes to sit in the vacuum block
at times, and will burn off on start-up. NO OIL BURNING, OR SMOKE, OR THE LIKE DURING IDLE, CRUISING, TAKE-OFF, UNDER LOAD, OR UNDER BOOST.

I'm not shipping the car, PICK-UP ONLY in Calgary, Alberta. If paying with bank draft, you WILL have to come to the bank with me.
If there are any questions, just ask.

GM mulling Chevy Cruze hatchback for US, Buick 'Panamera' among other new models

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 15:44:00 EST

We've spoken at length previously about the fallacy of poor hatchback sales in the US, and with the runaway success of its Chevrolet Cruze sedan, it's somewhat unsurprising to hear that General Motors is rethinking its decision not to sell an overseas five-door variant in North America as it looks to plug a number of holes in its lineup. GM North American President Mark Reuss admitted during a media luncheon this week that not offering the model "... was a pre-bankruptcy planning mistake," says Forbes. With the next-generation model already well-along in development, it's likely that the current Cruze hatch (shown above) won't see US dealers.
Reuss admits not offering the model "was a pre-bankruptcy planning mistake"
In what must have been a far-reaching conversation, Reuss hinted at a number of new products for many GM brands, including "a much more beautiful Panamera" range-topper for Buick (which sounds a bit like the line of reasoning the TriShield brand has been pursuing with its Riviera concepts) and a "Ford Transit Connect-fighter" to supplant the recently announced badge-engineered Chevy City Express from Nissan.

Movie Review: Black Air: The Buick Grand National Documentary

Thu, 06 Dec 2012 15:01:00 EST

As Buick currently claws and scratches its way back into relevance to compete against luxury brands like Lexus and Acura, it's hard to believe that not too long ago, the brand had a car that was mentioned in the same breath as Corvette, Lamborghini and Ferrari. That car? None other than the Buick Grand National. All black with a turbocharged V6 and some of the quickest acceleration of its time, the Grand National, in today's standards, is along the lines of a 2013 Shelby GT500 with both cars essentially being a working man's supercar.
The last Grand National rolled off the assembly line in Flint, MI on December 11, 1987, and to mark the silver anniversary of that somber occasion, Black Air is a documentary of the Grand National from the perspective of the enthusiast, the collector, the media and even from those at General Motors responsible for creating such a sinister legend. Like the car itself, Andrew Filippone Jr. shoots the documentary in a raw fashion, and it definitely helps to show why a low-volume muscle car from the 1980s is still the object of obsession for many automotive enthusiasts to this day.

Buick Envision CUV launches in China, is America next?

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 09:28:00 EST

Buick is launching its new midsize Envision crossover in China at the Chengdu Motor Show, where it will slot between the subcompact Encore and larger Enclave. While it might be hard to muster too much excitement about a Chinese-market crossover, don't completely ignore this one. There's a very good chance it could be on sale in North America to fill the same hole in the brand's lineup over here, possibly as a 2016 model.
We recently spied the Envision completely undisguised as it was arriving at the Chengdu show for its debut. The CUV still looks like a stretched Encore from some front angles, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's got a similar oversized grille, hood vents (presumably faux) and large greenhouse as its little brother. Where the midsize CUV differs is its prominent crease running down the side and the different rear treatment, with wing-shaped trim cutting into the taillights.
The interior looks like a pretty nice place to spend time, too, with a predictable mix of leather, wood and metal, and it should be quiet in there with its active noise cancelation system. Infotainment is provided by an eight-inch touchscreen with a touchpad and voice controls.
