Morrisville, Pennsylvania, United States

Fully documented original 1987 Buick Regal Limited Turbo, 1 of only 1,035 built and 1 of only a handful with this unique option combination.   North Carolina car with ultra rare option combination of Heavy Pad Landau roof, T-Tops, coach lamps, cornering lights, 6-way power drivers sear, reclining passenger seat, and factory trunk kit to name a few.  Fully loaded car with over $6K in options.  Comes with original window sticker, bill of sale, stock ID tag, and other sale and factory literature come with the car. Car was manufactured in September of 1986 (1987 Build Year) and was sold off the dealer showroom in May of 1987 with a mere 357 miles on the odometer from Cardinal Chevrolet-Buick-Cadillac in Reidsville, North Carolina.  The car remained in North Carolina until 2012 when I purchased it.

The car was re-painted once which occurred in 2011 according to the previous owner. At that time the car was disassembled and new fiberglass bumper fillers were installed along with new headlights and bulbs all the way around. The following new emblems were also installed: 3.8 Turbo Hood, Buick grill, regal rear quarter panel emblems, decklid 3.8 Turbo emblem, and deck lid Buick emblem. The car contains all the original trim, glass, moldings, landau top, bezels, front grill, bumpers, and sheet metal. Very little has been replaced on the car. Clean title and no accident history or issues. Car is in great shape and a fine example of the way it rolled off the factory showroom. No issues and very little surface rust on the frame / bumper supports.  Extremely solid car that has been well kept and garage maintained with the original as new condition landau roof!

Original numbers matching car with the following mechanical upgrades: Rebuilt 200-r4 transmission and converter with shift kit, upgraded rear end with limited slip differential, rebuilt factory turbo, and recent tune-up including AC Delco plugs, AC O2 sensor, fuel filter, plug wires, serpentine belt, PCV valve, rear main seal, intercooler/radiator flush, coil pack replaced and TPS adjustment. The engine has solid compression and holds 20+ PSI of oil pressure at idle hot and 60 PSI cold. The previous owner could not verify if the engine was ever rebuilt but it pulls strong with zero hesitation and it's the best running stock turbo regal I've ever owned. No smoke at start-up or while driving and no issues with the turbo seals. Also maintains the original factory mass air flow sensor. The AC works and blows cold but was converted at some point to 134. Appears to be the original power master and works fine with recent fluid change.

The only aftermarket upgrades to the car are: Racetronix high volume fuel pump (340) and new wiring on factory hanger, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, 160 degree t-stat, boost control valve (Set at 15lbs), 3.5 inch mild steel down pipe, Hooker 2.5 inch exhaust (Sounds great), cold air intake with K&N filter, pillar mounted boost gauge, oil and temp gauges in overhead t-top panel.

The interior is all original and contains the factory plush limited carpet, GM original carpet savers, and seats. No rips or tears in the upholstery but does contain a few blemishes from previous owners. Fully working: 6-way power seat, reclining passenger seat, illuminated visor, rear window defog, cruise control, power windows/door locks, original UM6 radio with factory speakers and concert sound.

The car is great for cruise nights and sunny drives or a commuter as its well sorted out and very reliable. Has been well maintained and is mechanically sound as everything works on the car. Needs nothing mechanically other then power antennae replacement kit.

I am Buick guy and would love to keep it but family priorities and expanding family force sale.  Destined to be a collector considering the rarity and is certain to appreciate over time.

Car is sold as is without warranty. $1000 deposit required within 48 hours and balance within 5 days.  Car is also for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early. 

Located in Bucks County PA, 19067.  Will ship at buyers expense.

2014 Buick LaCrosse updated with new styling, tech

Mon, 25 Mar 2013 08:00:00 EST

Buick might have one of the smallest lineups among major automakers, but by the time the 2014 model rolls around, it will definitely have one of the freshest. Debuting at the New York Auto Show this week, the 2014 Buick LaCrosse receives numerous styling changes inside and out, and it benefits from many of the same new features found on closely related models like the Cadillac XTS and the 2014 Chevrolet Impala.
Exterior changes are relatively minor, but they still help give the car a fresh, new look. The new face of the 2014 LaCrosse fits in with recently new or redesigned Buick models with its oversized waterfall grille, LED-trimmed headlights and the signature hood vents being moved to the side of the hood rather than the top. Similar changes have been made to the rear, like the reshaped LED taillights, the full-width chrome trim and a new fascia design; LaCrosse models equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 will still get the integrated exhaust finishers but they're executed in a more stylish manner than the current model. Finishing off the exterior, new wheel designs are also being introduced, which will include bringing 20-inch wheels to the sedan's option list.
Inside, Buick redesigned almost the entire cabin to create a more luxurious and upscale appearance. The instrument panel is essentially carried over, but pretty much everything else has been redesigned and updated with the biggest change being to the driver's area. Dual eight-inch configurable displays make up the center stack and gauge cluster, while the overall number of buttons have been reduced from 17 down to just seven. The 2014 LaCrosse will also be offered with the next-generation IntelliLink, which receives many of the same enhancements as Chevy's latest version of MyLink adding better customization, improved voice commands and more features including Pandora. Additionally, new door panels, seat and center console complete the LaCrosse's interior redesign.

Opel Insignia OPC Sports Tourer shows its fresh face ahead of Frankfurt debut

Thu, 22 Aug 2013 13:41:00 EST

Drive down the Autobahn and there's any number of vehicles likely to pass you, and most of them are produced locally. But if you're wondering how that Opel left you in its dust, look closely (and quickly) enough and you might make out the letters OPC on the back.
They stand for Opel Performance Center (the German counterpart to Vauxhall's VXR line) and they adorn performance versions of the Corsa, Astra and Insignia. The latter is undergoing a bit of a refresh and is expected to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in a couple of weeks, but you don't have to wait that long as our intrepid spy photographers have caught it in the flesh outside an Opel facility in Germany.
Spied here completely undisguised in Sports Tourer (read: wagon) form, the Insignia has had a few nips and tucks performed, but we'll be more intrigued to see what it's got under the hood. The current model packs a 2.8-liter twin-turbo V6 driving 325 horsepower to all four wheels, but rumors suggest that the OPC (yeah you know me!) could have as much as 400 hp up its sleeve. That would make this one heck of a sleeper - especially in wagon form - and only make us pine for a more potent version of its twin Buick Regal to roam our highways, too.

GM recalls 51k Enclave, Traverse, Acadia crossovers over fuel gauge inaccuracy

Mon, 05 May 2014 09:30:00 EST

With all eyes fixed on General Motors in the wake of the ignition recall debacle, the auto giant has been carefully calling in a wide array of vehicles to fix anything and everything that could prove problematic. Just the other day it issued two separate recalls - one concerning the Cadillac SRX and another its heavy-duty pickups - and now it is issuing another.
This time the vehicles in question are the Buick Enclave, Chevy Traverse and GMC Acadia, three fullsize crossovers based on GM's Lambda platform. In an estimated 51,640 units manufactured between March 26 and August 15, 2013, the engine control module has been found to incorrectly display the level of fuel in the tank.
As a result, owners are being notified to bring their vehicles in to their local dealers to have the ECU reflashed to fix the problem. View the full details in the announcement below from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
