The 80s were a somewhat dark time for American horsepower. Most V8s were pushing 150 or maybe less. Then Buick said to hell with the V8s, lets take a V6 and marry a beefy turbo to it. The result? The Buick Gran National. Pushing about 240 horses and later 276+ in the GNX....it was a mighty sleeper if there ever was one. One of my favorite 80s cars! This 1/64 Racing Champions example is really well proportioned and detailed.
