    9:30 "All of the old R-12 has leaked out" Then there is a problem. It shouldn't ever leak out.

      On the window sticker I notice this car has "California Emissions" so would this GNX have less power than one sold outside of California due to the stricter emissions?

                            That thing is choked with smog control. Not quite as fast as a non California gnx. Still be fun to have.

                                        HEY JAY - I NEVER KNEW A 1987 CAR COULD BE "BRAND NEW".
                                        DO YOU HAVE A TIME MACHINE? WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT AN OLD BUICK?

                                          Brand new ? As what the sticker price says. ..??? Probably Not. it just went up on the price .because Jay Leno drove it..

                                                    The thing is, ultimately it's just a Regal. A nice Regal, but just a Regal. That's why the dealer is dreaming. I had the chance to drive a new one, not an X, back in the day and it was fast, thought took a while to spool up. IIRC, 2 Indy race cars, powered by *stock* GN v-6 engines took pole and p2 at Indy 500 in 1986. They lasted about 6-7 laps and blew up. But still...stock engine getting pole at Indy. Not bad.

They only made a few over 500 because they couldn’t sell them.GN’s aren’t fast ast all in stock form, and this isn’t much faster... The HP number were underrated, but this is a 3600 lb car. G Body’s ride like a boat and the brakes are so bad it’s scary. Most people wouldn’t pay sticker price for it now.

I had to walk by a plastic covered GNX with a 90k price tag on it to get to the office to sign the papers. I bought it because it was the only car as fast as a hemi dodge or plymouth since 1971. A friend raced me with his built 70 440 charger and he threw a rod trying to beat it. Those cars were a real shock to all the muscle car guys at the time.

He also says: "a VW of that era would cost you about $17k". He never says nothing specific, a Volkswagen of that era, sure.... Look at motor week, they tested test cars and they are not that fast stock. Look at a Porsche Carrera 4 from 1989 from motor week, with a 3.6l N/A and only 250hp was the quickest production car 0-60 at the time with a 4.5 sec.
