I saw one of these cars on the road and decided then and there that I had to have one. I found out there was a "Dale, Jr. Edition" too, but I like the look of the black and silver combination better than the red and silver. The blue and silver "Jeff Gordon Edition"? Who cares?
I've wanted one of these for a long time. Sure, I'm a Chevy man, but sometimes there are those special cars that you just KNOW you want, if and when the right one comes along at the right price. Well, last week, it happened. A customer at my shop happened to mention that a friend of his was selling an '86 Grand National, and asked if ! would ask around if anyone might be interested. I took the info on the car and thought it over for a couple of days..... Then I made a phone call and then Kate and I took the 2 hour drive to check the car out. As the pictures show, it turned out to be a great car. We discussed price, struck a deal, and came home with the newest addition to our garage - and one I don't have to do a damn thing to!
Small-block V-8 and front wheel drive. It'll smoke 'em all the way down the block!
3.8 liter (231 ci) Turbocharged, Intercooled V-6 ("chipped")
4-Speed automatic Overdrive Transmission
335 lb. ft. Torque
0-60: 4.1 Seconds
1/4 Mile: 12.7 Seconds
It came pretty much loaded, with heated leather seats and XM Stereo.
I know the power sunroof was an option, but I'm not sure of some of the other goodies like the digital dashboard, power seat, power windows, power locks, power antenna, electronic climate control, etc.
The car still has all the books with it, and it even has an emergency crank in case the sunroof motor goes out with the roof open!
