Everyone here at Jalopnik has been anxious to see Black Air, a documentary about the beloved Buick Grand National and GNX from New York filmmaker Andrew Filippone Jr.

Seeing this exclusive clip provided by the filmmaker of former Car And Driver editor Tony Assenza setting up the significance of this car only makes us want to see even more.

The Grand National, a high point for American cars, came at one of the lowest points for General Motors. Assenza's initial doubts were only sensible.

The good news is, we won't have to wait too long to see it. The film will be released on December 11th of this year, with a brief screening on August 4th at the Buick Performance Group meeting in Hebron, Ohio. For more information stay tuned to Jalopnik and the movie's Facebook page.
