John O'Connell of Lake Zurich says Buick's Grand National has a large and loyal following.
The stealthy black 1987 Grand National was completed on Oct. 28 according to its build sheet. An options list under the trunk lid is partially written in French because the auto was destined for a Canadian dealer.
O'Connell has redone most of the car's gray and black interior.
The Grand National's V-6 engine is turbocharged and fuel injected, giving it that added "oomph" to outperform most V-8s of its era.

Produced during 1980s, the Grand National wasn't your grandparents' stodgy, grocery-getting Buick. Unlike its four-wheeled predecessors that relied on eight cylinders, the Grand National utilized a V-6 engine, bolstered with a turbocharger to make its tire-smoking magic.
