    The hellcat is by far the BADDEST car of the year 2015.

    But the turbo Buick's were the car of the 80's Fastest american production car PERIOD

    Had a friend that owned one, car was a badass 6 banger for sure...throw in a Banks upgrade and a lot of guys were crying at the track from getting whooped by a 6.

    i used to race one with my 1990 5.0......i would win or tie most of the time.....most races were from about 30-40mph to about 80mph+......we both worked with each other and would race on the way home from work occasionally...i dont remember him ever beating me.....even though GN owners tell me the GN is a faster car.....maybe only starting from 0mph.....from 30-40mph they werent

    i do agree they were bad ass at the time.....today the interior is funny looking.....but i remember at the time that car was everyones dream....id still like one...all 1980's interiors sucked horribly

    i raced one with my 2011 392 and kicked its *ss.......his was making some funny noises though

    We have a GN in the Doylestown Pa area that I see every so often, not real sure but I think the owner said it had the most HP in the country from the 6, know of it?

    Definitely a car I consider to be one of the best of that time period and they still look great today.

    At the time though, people were pushing them hard and I had the opportunity to see a bunch pop a gasket at the big end ...and then I'd sit there waiting for the clean up.

    That and the SS Montes. I knew somebody that bought one, and a very shirt time later, hacked the engine harness out of it and threw in a big motor. Had it until a few years ago, when he rolled it down the cement barrier at the track as a twin turbo car. :-(

    There is a sick video of a I found a while ago of a GN on the dyno. I'll see if I can find it again

    I've got an 87 GN that I bought new. Paid sticker for it when they were selling everywhere for a 5k markup even back then, so the markup game has been going on since time began.
