Unique to the GN = production specifications.

Not enough to put it into the elevens.

........ from that pic its impossible to tell what he has done to the suspension.

I did not get my information from the pic.

so instead of posting all those quotes, please post the info you have from the picture. Grand nats dont need alot to hit elevens considering they run 13's stock a good tune a little race gas, decent traction and a good 20 psi can easily put a GN into the elevens if you dont believe check out rjcracing.com

If you have a problem with my posting style, send me a PM.

I don't see why, but, here it is again:

You could not identify the tires or rear suspension before. I do not know what you expect to see this time.

Are you looking for something other than what I described in my second post?

Going from Mid/high thirteens into the elevens is not easy. In this case, it is not possible.

Here it is again:

As soon as you deviate from GN production specs, you are leaving this topic and starting a schoolyard pizzing contest.

Yes. mid/high thirteens. Just about what the car in the image would. If it was ever clocked.

91buickman wrote:

Why do you think we might not believe you?

Looks like it would not take much to put one in the nines.

Where is the car we are discussing?

Everyone: Please excuse my rude use of fonts.

Going to answer again.

You must have missed it. Here it is again.

91buickman wrote:

Yes. That is what you said, that is what I read, that is what I quoted, and that is what I posted.

Any information that might be in the pic, is in the pic. I posted the pic in order to give you all the information that you asked for.

88 Coupe wrote:
Black finish is part of the package. Under the skin, it's a Buick Grand National ........

I posted it, in the context of the thread topic. I did not post it, so you could RESURRECT the thread, to TROLL for an another ARGUMENT, in order to TRASH yet another thread.

I have done what you asked.

Now you can post a picture of the car you are talking about, so we will all know it actually exists.

Let me rephrase my question,
You mentioned its production spec my question for you was how do you figure its a production spec "hybrid"? theres no need for a picture, but like i said earlier i have seen the "hybrid" before. ANd simply stated some specs on the vehicle pictured. what do you not get about that simple question?

The question was answered in the first two replies, and the OP is long gone.
