Default Buick T-Type, Grand National, and GNX returning

... with rear-wheel drive and both twin turbo V6 and LT1 V8 power (GNX) options. How sweet will that be?

It aint gonna be the same as it was in 1987.

But, I will stay positive and hope for the best.

Would be cool to go to a dealership excited about a car.

But, I am bleSSed in the fact that I did just that in 1987 when I bought a GN new and in 1996 when I bought an SS new. Two cars that will go down in history as some of the best ever from GM. Had to sell one to get the other but thats how it went.

One request here....dont dishonor the original BEAST, if they are gonna do this, do it right.

I have little faith in the company that has made a gubment only RWD V8 sedan and plans on releasing an "SS" sedan (that's the name?).

They already dishonored it They make a Regal T right now. One of the last times i was out in mine i had a new one roll up next to me and was all smiling at me like we had anything in common lol. I just waved and then let the hair dryer under the hood show him what a Turbo T was supposed to do.
