The Buick Grand National Is the Ultimate Nineteen Eighties Muscle Car


The Buick Grand National is the utmost Eighties muscle vehicle. 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 caprices and features.



  1. Battle of the Buicks! Tyler Hoover’s ’96 Park Ave Ultra vs. Doug’s ’87 Regal Grand National. I’d go for the Grand National…?

  2. Those of you that always say ”Doug, the type of guy..,” just want to gargle his balls. Idiots!

  3. It looks like a old school Monte Carlo

  4. Dome Light!!! haha, love it….. lot’s of memories

  5. Ughhhhhhh this is my fav car you have done. Such a timeless classic. Absolutely beautifully preserved. One day this will be in my garage. Thanks for this.

  6. All of Doug’s comments about the straight-edge and square interior features reminded me of a comment Clarkson made:

  7. Why don’t you try to find one of those 84′ Hurst Olds Cutlass, with that Hurst shifter in it. Always wanted one of those way back!

  8. Thomaso de Tinape

    Damn 8 bolts on the head were the demise for me-
    Just doesn’t hold up.

  9. Not an icon of the automotive world – just USA. Everywhere is it’s hilariously bad.

  10. Doug the type of guy to review the center console from the backseat.
