Thumbs up 11 seconds for only $1500

MAN, I've been doing some research on the Turbo Buicks like the Buick Grand National and the Buick Regal T-Types and WOW, these things can really get up and go. They have 3.8L Turbocharged V6's, and they run high 13's to low 14's stock. Check out this link, you can get one into the 11's with only $1500! And that's without touching the inside of the engine. I got to find me one of these things..

My brother used to have a GN, and it was a beauty. Unfortunately, my brother does not appreciate cars as well as some and wore the poor thing down. Maybe whoever bought it treats it nicer. :)

yep, gn's are awesome drag cars. you can pick one up around 8-12 grand in decent shape. i/c turbo v6 auto's that ride like a buick (boat), and can sit 6 comfortably and can still wipe the streets up with most cars on the road gets respect from any enthusiast.

I thought that Lotus and Porsche did that in the late 70's, early eighties with their turbo 4 cyls?
