The Lithograph says:

The 1986/1987 Turbo Regal and 1989 Turbo Trans Am……. V8’s Beware!

Perhaps the oddest of kindred spirits in the world of super street sleepers are the 1986/1987 Turbo Regal and the 1989 Turbo Trans Am. Both are powered by Buick’s ferocious 3.8 liter turbocharged and intercooled V6 engine, enabling them to send most other street cars home with a bad case of tire smoke inhalation. Unlike its big brother with the bad attitude, the Grand National, the 1986/1987 Turbo Regals have a more subtle appearance, like a car best suited for a family trip. Likewise, the white and gold 1989 Turbo Trans Am seems to blend into the thousands of less potent third generation Trans Ams made over the years. But make no mistake, pull up next to either one of these silent assassins in your Mustang, Camaro or even Corvette and you’ll need to sit on a pillow for the next month. A 1986/1987 Turbo Regal against 1989 Turbo Trans Am would be about the only way to have a fair race………. now that would truly be a toss up!
