    Grand National/Monte SS Buckets - Common or hard-to-find?

    Hey Guys! I got an alert on my eBay watch list that a set of GN front buckets was going down from $399 to $299. They have the normal wear and tear you’d expect on 30+ year old seats, but overall looked in good shape. I know you can get replacement foam and covers no problem, but I’m wondering...

    Monziac still active on GBF?

    Does anyone know if Monziac is still active on the forums? I stumbled across an old thread that had some photos of a coupe nose conversion on a Regal wagon, and I had some questions. If you know of anyone else that has done this, would be interested in talking to them, too. Thanks.

    600-hp Grand National on Iron Resurrection

    Don't know if any of the rest of you guys have seen the episode, but I'm watching Iron Resurrection on Velocity, and one of the cars they're working on is a hot-rodded Grand National with a claimed 600 hp that's getting a roll cage, because I guess the owner ran too fast a pass to run in the...

    Duramax Grand National Feature

    Apologies to the admins if this is posted in the wrong category. In fact, if you read the feature, the car actually started as an Olds Cutlass, and he painstakingly swapped out all the components to turn it into a GN. I actually used to work in the group that published Diesel Power. Hope you...

    Woody Beach Cruiser or Grand National?

    Hi guys. I know I've brought this up before, but this is turning out to be a major existential crisis for me. For the longest time, I had the dream of creating a Grand National-style wagon with a dark, moody paintjob, totally de-chromed, coupe-style front end, etc. I still like the look and idea...

    Cost difference: SBC vs. 3.8 turbo?

    Hi all. Just doing some initial exploration and research on powertrain options for my ‘83 Regal wagon. If possible and reasonably within budget, I’d like to keep it a V-6, since that was kind of Buick’s trademark in the ‘80s. How expensive/difficult is it to still get parts or engines for Grand...

    3.8 2-bbl vs. Grand National block - Same or different?

    Hi All, Just wondering if there were any fundamental differences between the boat-anchor 3.8 2-bbl V-6 block, and the one that was used in the Grand National/GNX. Obviously, there are internal differences (pistons, cam, crank, bearings, etc.) and everything bolted to the engine, but just the...

    CaliWagon83's Consolidated Question/Tech/Update thread

    Hi All! I'm about to inherit an '83 Regal wagon that's been in the family since new. Right now it's in Tennessee, but will soon make its way back out to the Left Coast. It's pretty clean and relatively low-miles (I think about 63k right now). It's that ubiquitous baby blue metallic with...

    Spotted a GNX in the Goodguys car corral

    Didn't expect to run into one for sae at the goodguys show here in ft worth. Thought it might be a clone. Made a quick walk around video of it. I didn't think the price was outrageous seeing how nice it looked.

    1978-1988 GM A/G-Body Wiring Diagram for Security System

    I have a 1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS and I just bought an Avital alarm system that I intend to install myself. I need to know what wires to splice or tap for the starter, horn, lights, door switches, electric locks, and electric trunk release. I've installed audio equipment numerous times in...

    I offended a Grand National guy haha!!!!

    So i was leaving my neighborhood yesterday as i saw a sweet *ss GN that obviously had a front mount intercooler i could see from a distance! Note, I've yet to see this car in my hood before. Noticing some guys sitting on a porch i pulled up and asked "who's pontiac is that, it looks nice?"...
