Newbie from Ontario
« on: October 09 2017, 10:40:46 PM »
Hi folks, I am new to Turbo Buicks, but not to Buicks in general.  I also own a 1972 Buick GS Stage 1 4-speed replica and a 2014 Verano.  My first car was also a hand-me-down 1978 two-door Skylark.  Anyway, just yesterday (October 8, 2017) a 1987 Regal Turbo T Limited landed at my place.  I bought it from Kevin (ss/gn on this board).  I took it for my maiden voyage in it (I didn't even test drive it before I bought it, in fact I never even sat in the car) tonight.  Wow, no wonder these cars have such a strong following!  That turbo is intoxicating.


Kevin was fantastic to deal with and he did sooo much to make the car beautiful and and functional.  He is super-meticulous and he has offered to help me whenever I need it.  In fact, he sent me a list of Turbo Buick-related sites, including this one.


I can't wait to get more seat time in this beast.

Welcome!  Kevin is a great dude! I met him at BG this year. Ask your questions and you'll get a no nonsense approach to answers on this board.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Thanks for the welcome, guys.  I've only taken it out for a couple of really short jaunts (I'm not going to certify it until the spring).  I did a little brake stand, holding the brakes until it built some boost.  Holy crap!  Instant tire smoke.  Love it!
