1987 Buick Regal Grand National GNX
The Buick Grand National was one of the last rear wheel drive muscle cars the company put out. Even while they came electronically limited to 120mph, the GNX was one of the fastest American cars of the late 1980s. The turbocharged 231 cu.in. v6 motor was produced by MacLaren and would generate 276 hp and 360 ft. lbs. of torque. Only 547 were made.
