Buick GNX Quick Study Guide

1987 Buick GNX

Check out this brief but informative look at and history of probably the biggest G-Body “Holy Grail” out there, the Buick GNX.

Today, as every automaker from Ford to Ferrari offers small-displacement turbocharged engines to keep fuel economy high and horsepower higher, the GNX offers the blueprint for the modern muscle car, proof that displacement doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t have the power to back it up. And while period performance cars like the Testarossa and the C4 Corvette are today almost groan-inducing in how dated they look, the GNX still looks menacing, it still looks cool.

Until you see in person what ASC/McLaren did with these 500 and some odd cars in person, you really don’t understand why they’re so unique.

I’ve been in a G-Body in one way or another since they were new. I got my own ’79 Cutlass in 1990, and have been a fanatic ever since. In 2005 I started GBodyForum, and now GBodyMagazine.
