With a name like the Buick Regal, it is hard to expect anything except the very best. This car was a mid-size vehicle produced by General Motors’ Buick division from 1973 through 2004. During many of these years, Buick also used the Century name on mid-size models and the two often shared bodies and power trains. The Regal was named for the NASCAR Grand National racing series. It incorporated a 4.1 L V6 with 125 hp or an optional 180 hp turbocharged 3.8 L V6. Needless to say it had quite a reputation to live up to. There was no Grand National released in 1983, but thankfully it returned in 1984 at which time it was painted all black. In 1987 it reached a whopping 245 hp (182 kW).

These beauties were painted all black and came with the same blackout package as the Grand National. This option included bumpers, grille, headlight and taillight trim. The only differences between a WE4 and the base Grand National were with the interior trim package.
