While modern-day Buick struggles to compete with the likes of Lexus and Acura, there was once a car with a Buick logo that muscle-car enthusiasts dream of driving. Funny as it sounds now, in its era this car used to give the Corvettes and other high-end sports cars a run for their money. This car is none other than the Buick Grand National.

Nothing charming could be said about the Grand Nationals exterior, as it looked like any GM car that rolled out during the late 80s. Yes, it did have distinguishing elements like the Buick grille and Buicks "Power 6" badges in the fenders and wheel centers, but overall, it looked like your run-of-the-mill 1980s slushbox.
The main feature though that made it unique was the color of all the elements. Each nook and cranny of the exterior was finished in jet black. Since the movie "Return of the Jedi" was released during the same time, people often referred to the Grand National as the "Darth Buick. If only it had the laser guns and light sabers...
While its interior is an eyesore by todays standards, the right angles and upright binnacles covered in a leather-print vinyl used to be the thing among the 80s motorheads. Plus, it was marketed as a working mans supercar, so to make the word "working" true, the Grand National had to undergo such a treatment.The one aspect that makes us easily forget the bland interior is the raw power that the Grand National oozes. GM was typically overly protective of its dearest Corvette, sometimes a way that makes us all a little uncomfortable, but the Grand National was one of the few exceptions GM made to its standing protect-the-Corvette-at-all-costs rule.
This shot at the king was a bold move made by Buick that likely angered the boys at Chevrolet.
