.
Featuring a race car interior (complete with roll bar & tach) plus drag slick tires, along with hood mounted air vents & window net, not to mention the ladder bar type suspension, external fuel pump system, K&N air filter + other drag car goodies, this replica of the real deal looks every bit as bad as the full scale version!

 

A red foil stamped GMP logo appears on the end panel of the inner box for the first time.
{Replacing the old silver-only foil stamped checkerboard GMP logo}

 

The COA has a shadow image of the Tweaked logo in the background.

 

The numbered lithograph was signed in pink (matching the “tweaked” logo found on the car) by Lawrence Conley (the original owner of Tweaked).

The Lithograph says:

“We Brake For No One!”

Lawrence Conley’s “Tweaked” is perhaps the most heavily campaigned and most recognized Grand National racecar in Turbo Buick history. In 1990, TWEAKED was the first Buick V6 turbo-powered car to ever break the 9 second barrier and rip off an 8 second 1/4 mile pass. TWEAKED has been even more impressive than that. Lawrence Conley ran 7.75@178.96 mph in the 1/4 mile with Tweaked way back in 1996. This remains the world record, fastest 1/4 mile pass made by a Buick V6 powered Grand National with a single turbo in competition even today.

The Inner Box says:

In the 80’s turbo Buicks began ruling the muscle car Showdowns and the Gran Sport Nats. Lawrence Conley’s “Tweaked” ’83 Regal was the one to beat. “Tweaked” has run 9.90 at 135 mph with the mufflers in place. That made it the fastest single Buick in the country. This car was built in 120 days, and is basically a “gold ole boys budget car” with the basics needed to go fast. The 1987 Buick V6 block, steel Carillo rods and the Weisco 9.2:1 pistons were bought and used. The crank was then nitrided for durability. That’s just a drop in the bucket to all the mods this monster has seen over the years. Lawrence got the weight of the car down to 3252 pounds with him on board. Jaz seats, super light weight custom door panels, no console or lighter and no power functions helped put this Buick on a major diet. “Tweaked” will most definitely be remembered as the one to beat.
