About “Buick GN”
This is my second Buick Grand National. I really enjoy this car it is a very good dependable car. I bought this car as a dealer holdover in 1989, and have owned it ever since. The words WOW still come to mind everytime I drive it. This car currently only has 15,594 miles on it
About “The SS”
This car is my baby, she gets what she wants all the time LOL.
My wife was actually the one that always wanted an SS as a friend of her family had one years ago and she always wanted one.
We bought this car with the stock engine in it and it didn't take long for me to take care of that.
I did the TPI swap on this car myself with a custom engine harness and chip. When I did the TPI swap I added a stock L-98 350 roller cam nad lifters to the stock engine to add a few ponies to the car.
While doing the TPI swap I also converted to a serpentine belt setup which switched the alternator and AC compressor side to side which meant finding AC lines which would allow me to keep the AC.
I know I don't need the cowl induction hood with the TPI, but the hood was on the car when we got it and I love the way it looks on the car.
