The Inner Box says:

“We Brake For Corvettes” was a popular bumper sticker sold in Buick dealerships back in 1987, because it was clear that every time a new Corvette lined up against a new Grand National at the dragstrip, the Buick was going to win. Yes, the Corvette was a more complete performance car. It could out handle and out brake a Grand National and it certainly had better aerodynamics, fit and finish. But when it came to brute force power onto the pavement, that was the Grand National’s game and it didn’t like losing. With a few inexpensive modications, the Grand National’s turbocharged and intercooled 231 cubic inch V6 engine can easily push the brick shaped Buick into the 12-second range at the dragstrip, far too challenging for a 1987 Corvette. Grand Nationals weren’t only getting drivetrain modifications, some were getting custom paint jobs. The yellow w/ flames 1987 Grand National Drag Version in this box was built for Epitome Exclusives’ 300 GOLD Club Members Only to commemorate that short, late 1980s era…….. when the Grand National earned its reputation as the “VETETR”.
