      Unsubbed... Seriously. Dude, you can't rank older cars by modern standards.

        I'm making this comment before I even watch the video. If Doug ranks cool factor lower than 8, speed lower than 7,style lower than 9, value lower than 10, and functionality lower than 8,I'm unsubbing. I'm so serious. If this gets an overall score less than 70, I'm telling YouTube not to suggest this channel. Not kidding. This is a classic exotic supercar.

          I miss those visor mirrors. My Rav4 has one light on the ceiling above the mirror that doesn't illuminate that well

              The "intake" at the bottom is cooling to the intercooler and radiator. The air filter is visible on the driver's side of the engine bay, behind the headlight. Also, that listing of national radio stations might be the most hilarious quirk that Doug has ever unearthed.

                If I remember right the radio in an 80s gm had more presets if you hold down more than one button at once.

                        the name of this car always makes me chuckle a bit, because "Regal" means "shelf" in german. the buick shelf grand national xD

                            "just to save 7cents on the individual seatbelt buckles"
                            yeah, save those 7cents times 4 for all the seats in the car. then save those 24 cents on 10 million cars you make, with all those brands in the company and you have saved the annual bonus for a chairman back in the 80s.

                                                  This is one of my favorite shows on You Tube....However, I rarely agree with the Doug Score on anything older than 10 years old.....And on this, that 0-60 time is way off....But 75% of the time he on point. The Grand National was faster than the Vette but due to Marketing and GMs "Whatever" The numbers were incorrect...Real Gear Heads know what I am talking about.

In 1984-87 maybe, but the hurtin those all black cars put on everyone soon made it the icon it is. You want a sleeper? You could get the same engine/transmission/3.42 geared rear (with G80 posi option) in ANY Regal in 1987. From The WE4 Turbo-T factory lightweight, to a Turbo Limited with bench seat/column shift and vinyl half roof....and in ANY color. I have my grandfather's 1987 Turbo, in silver metallic, bench seat, column shift, no power options (=lightweight). And no, it is not original. But you wouldn't know how big the turbo is, how much boost it is tuned to, and you won't see the huge amount of suspension mods underneath what looks like an old man's Sunday churchmobile. If you're ever in MA, look up Cotton's Performance. But honestly, I don't know why I'm wasting time trying to educate someone who laughs and giggles when he spools the turbo, yet rates the acceleration at 2.
