Paltry performance options in the late 1970s created a void in the marketplace for buyers looking for a car with get-up-and-go potential. When a manufacturer finally answered the bell, it wasn't Chevrolet, Ford, or Dodge who stepped up, but Grandma's favorite option: Buick! Buick's famed V-6 received a much-needed boost in 1978 with the introduction of the turbo mated to the 3.8L with RPO code LD5. When it was all said and done in 1987, Turbo Buicks were capable of 13 second quarter-mile times and were crowned the fastest American production models of the 1980s. With strong performance and menacing looks, Turbo Buicks now find themselves corralled into the muscle car genre with muscle car prices! It's only fitting that a book was created for aiding in the restoration of Turbo Buicks. Russ Smith, renown Grand National expert, has taken his decades of experience restoring these cars and has authored the perfect book for 1978-1987 Buick G-Body owners. With step-by-step color restoration sequences, this volume will be a valued resource as you restore your 30-plus-year-old Buick back to its legendary appearance.
