The Inner Box says:

1986 Street / Strip Buick Grand National

In 1986 a new American musclecar was born. Buick’s turbocharged and intercooled Grand National. The Grand National model had been around for a few years, but this was the first one with the punch to knock out the competition. This car could run sub-5 second 0-60 mph times and run the quarter mile in under 14 seconds… and this was just from the factory. With a few basic modifications this car turned into a silent but violent street beast that could rip off 12 second runs on pump gas and then go to the strip on race gas and give its foes 11 second, whistling nightmares. Not bad for a 231ci V-6 engine that got over 23 mpg. The 30,000 Buick Grand Nationals produced in 1986 and 1987 are classics today that commend the highest respect in the automobile enthusiasts world. Their affinity to breathing heavily on the street and strip with just some minor tweaks have earned them the #1 ranking as possibly the greatest pure musclecar of all time.
