While some may have perceived the GM G-Body as a run-of-the-mill midsize passenger car, the G-Body was indeed capable of spectacular performance, and models such as the Monte Carlo SS, Hurst/Olds, Regal T-Type, and others proved this. In fact, the Buick Grand National earned the title of the fastest American production car in the mid 1980s. Hundreds of thousands of G-Body cars, which included Buick Regal, Chevy El Camino, Oldsmobile 4-4-2, and Pontiac Grand Prix, were made between 1978 and 1987. This was also the body chosen for use in NASCAR competition at the time, and some special-edition G-Bodies were aerodynamically enhanced by the factory to give their NASCAR teams an on-track edge. Today, the pre-1987 G-Body is the classic American front engine/rear-wheel-drive platform. This affordable and plentiful car is easily upgraded into a high-performance vehicle that rivals most other American V-8 muscle cars. Author Joe Hinds covers how to shop for, thoroughly inspect, and purchase a G-Body that fits your needs and budget. Once you have your G-Body car, he details how to extract the maximum performance. He does this by explaining how to upgrade each major component group: powertrain, suspension, braking system, and interior. In addition, he shows you the steps to build and upgrade a G-Body for a particular application, such as high-performance street, Pro Touring, drag racing. The aftermarket has recognized this growing market segment and now offers a wide array of high-performance parts. Whether pure acceleration or overall handling improvement is the goal, he covers it all clearly and concisely.
