So some of my readers may be asking, why would he write about this muscle car, a 1987 Buick GNX with 25k original miles that went across the block and sold for $66k on a Thursday night? Well that's easy, as a car enthusiast, I have a list of collector cars including muscle cars that I would love to own one day before I died and this particular muscle car is high on my wish list. Yes, someday I would love to own a 1987 Buick GNX or more so the Grand National.

My father showed me one of these at a car show several years ago and I love it. What is better than all black, fast muscle car that could be used as a daily driver if desired. But I do have to say, as much as I would want to keep it stock, part of me would actually have the car upgraded to a turbo-charged diesel engine or even a hydrogen powered car after several years of driving it and create one hell of a ride that looks stock on the outside and interior, but under the hood its all pure power.
