If you know anything about the Buick Grand National, then you probably already know it is heavily associated with Darth Vader. If you didn't already know that, well, now you do so we can move on to more important details like different versions of the vehicle and how many turbo Regals were produced.


Frankly, we didn't get a lot of information from the submitter on this, and we only have this rear badge to go on. 1980s Buicks aren't my forte, and I can't tell if this is a 1987, so one of over 29,000 made—or the much rarer 1986, of which only over 7,000 were produced. It'd be great if a Grand National expert in the comments could tell us what he or she can glean from this badge shot.

What are we looking at here, folks? Use the force, Jalops, and let's go deep into the Dark Side in our search for answers.

Cool car, stupidly fast in a straight line...and scary as hell if there are any bumps while to avoid braking and turning too.
