I'm not always a muscle car fan, but this is pure sex.....

Not that I'd pay that much for it...

I'd rather buy a regal and make it look like a GNX. Apparently it's an easy car to get look-alike parts for. Granted, you do lose that actuality value of being a GNX, it's still a cool car no matter what shape its in.

A Clone is not the same thing. Ever.

Well....duh.

But it still looks the same, and for and fan of the car, a clone is usually the closest you can get.

How many of you actually know the difference between a GN and a GNX?

Murg, I'm sure you do.

I don't know what the hell it is, but I do know if it's so famous and sought after it should be on the Barrett Jackson auction block and not eGay. Strange that it's there. Kinda makes you wonder if it's a legit auction.

So tell us about it. I've never heard of it.

I was never a fan of the Buick 231. It is also the 3.8T-Type.

The Buick GN was just a trim level. It wasn't mandatory turbo, but became standard.

The Grand National was a mean car. In `87 it was the fastest production car released. The same engine could be found in certain Pontiacs from the era as well.

The GNX however was different.

It was a kit car in the way all the classic turnkey monsters are. ASC/McLaren modified these cars, and not a whole lot of them.

I think the reason the car is being sold on eBay is for the publicity. Whoever buys it will most likely keep all the paperwork clean, and then detail it for Barret-Jackson.

It will draw an easy half million there.

Buick has always made bad-ass performance cars that are almost always overshadowed by something better GM produced. As far as the G-Body goes, it doesn't get better than a GNX.

..... yeah that is some of the craziest shit I've ever seen.

I wonder if it got "Lost" in some warehouse due to a paperwork error or something ridiculous like that.

I wish Buick made more 'sporty' looking cars and less 'old people' looking cars now days. My dads 93 LaSabre is a really fast car actually and reliable as shit (not to mention incredibly comfortable).

We have an `96 Regal with a 3100 in it. It needs a head gasket. It gets up and goes though.

I kinda like fast old person cars (anyone remember my Cima?), but I think the Rivieras look like butt-zilla from the rear.

I love the GNs motor combo but damm if the exterior doesnt scream 1980s and the interior is worse than that!

at least the GNX has the better guage cluster.

d00d, the Regals/Monte Carlos/Cutlasses/Grand Prixs from that era were pimp looking. Helluva a lot better than their future iterations when GM said "fuck you cool cars like the Monte SS and the GN, all of your models are going FWD and being given shitty 130hp 6cyls!!"

I dont think you realize the history your buying when you purchase a GNX, but one thats mint cond. That was a good idea on whoever thought on preservating it. Now there making 100k off it :)

Thats if your going to drive it and beat on it. Actually use the car. This one is destined to be a trailer queen at WORST. It will be towed/pushed everywhere. Probly get detailed and sold for 1/2 mill at barret jackson. Someone with a ton of cash and a lost childhood will fork out the money for it. A lot of people claim to have one of a kind cars. But that one really is. No amount of restoration gets a car back to 9 miles.

Eh, its a little more than some "auto 6." The Buick 3.8 was a BEAST - faster than the Corvette when it was released.
