    1354824060

    As Buick currently claws and scratches its way back into relevance to compete against luxury brands like Lexus and Acura, it's hard to believe that not too long ago, the brand had a car that was mentioned in the same breath as Corvette, Lamborghini and Ferrari.

    Rumormill: SLP says it is developing new GNX and Grand National Buicks
    1330712040

    As you might remember, we were left unfulfilled by the 2012 Buick Regal GS. Buick just didn't go far enough, in our estimation, which is why when we read about the possibility of a tuner version of the GS from SLP Performance Parts on Inside Line, we got on the phone posthaste. SLP is ...

    Looks can deceive: 6.6L Duramax-powered Buick GNX clone
    1219584900

    The car you see here is not a GNX. Hell, it's not even a Buick. You'd be forgiven if you thought it was, though, and it does sport a turbocharger underhood. David Morad was so enamored with the 6.6L LB7 Duramax diesel in his truck that he wanted to put it into something lighter and more fun. He ...

    eBay find of the week: Mazda FD RX-7 equipped with Grand National turbo'd V6
    1187541120
