For much of its existence in the North American market, Buick has been promoted as a premium automobile brand, selling entry-level luxury vehicles positioned above its mainstream GM stable mate Chevrolet, and below the flagship Cadillac division. Buick holds the distinction of being the oldest active American marque of automobile, and the original Buick Motor Company was a cornerstone of the establishment of General Motors in 1908.
However, through the late 1960s, Buick had a reputation -- not unlike the one it is battling today -- as a maker of pleasant cars for dull people. The number of Buick models in the lineup fell over time, with the compact and performance segments being abandoned altogether.
The tri-shield brand sold very nice luxury models but nothing that appealed to kids enamored of the sights, speeds, and smells of muscle cars and illicit drag racing early in the muscle car era. That is, until Buick decided to transform the Skylark into a player in the muscle car field.
The Skylark first appeared in 1953-1954 as a limited edition convertible based on the Roadmaster platform. Approximately 2,526 units were built in those two years, then the model was discontinued.
Reintroduced in 1961 as a compact car, for basic transportation, as a sub model of the Buick Special. By 1964, the Skylark sales dictated that it should become a separate model line. In mid 1965, Buick tested the performance car market with the introduction of the Gran Sport as an option on the Skylark. Competitors didn't exactly run for the hills.
Imagine the shock, then, when Buick broke out the Skylark's Gran Sport trim level as a unique model for 1968. A very aggressive performance car that lives up to its' name, Gran Sport, was a true muscle car. In 1970, GM lifted the 400-cid V-8 limit in intermediate-size cars, and Buick responded with its quickest cars yet, and some of the mightiest muscle cars of the era.
The 1972 GS and GS455 would be the last of Buick's muscle car line until the Grand National, ten years later. The Buick GS line is now remembered as one of GM's premier muscle cars.
THE 1972 GRAND SPORT WAS THE END OF AN ERA.

The 3.0L turbodiesel V6 in the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel earned a slot on Ward's Automotive 2014 10 Best Engines for its power, fuel economy and refinement. In a piece looking at how Fiat subsidiary VM Motor developed the engine, Ward's also makes note of the fact that the same lump goes in diesel versions of the Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli. They're tuned a bit differently, naturally, with the QP putting out 275 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque, the smaller, lighter Ghibli making do with the same number of horses but a lower torque output of 420 lb-ft.
The 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet put out by the oil-burning six-cylinder in the Ram was tamed with a host of advances, but it appears that Ram hasn't tamed demand: the initial allocation of 8,000 engines was spoken for within three days of the truck going on sale. Head over to Ward's to read the story of how Ram worked out the equation light-duty-pickup + diesel = success.

Subcompact sales slump, yet again
Maserati has been celebrating its 100th anniversary all year, but recent visitors to Virginia International Raceway might have gotten to see one of the coolest highlights of the whole centenary. The brand took its already amazing MC12 GT1 racer and painted it up to commemorate its 100th birthday, dubbing the model Maserati MC12 GT1 Centenario. That would be neat enough, but the spectators at VIR actually got to watch and listen to this special edition racecar lap the track with its spectacular exhaust note singing a fantastic tune.
It's rather rare to see these beastly V12 racers on track in the US these days, but they were quite successful in FIA GT1 competition in Europe several years ago. The sound that they make perfectly matches those purposeful, low-slung looks. Switch this video into HD and turn up the speakers to experience a look at this fantastic racecar.
