New GN owner in TN

#1
Hello everyone ! Just found this sight and have been reading on here all day while at work .
A lot of good info ! Picked up my first GN about 2 years ago . Got it home and it has sat in my shop collecting dust . When I bought it the intake and some top end parts were off the motor but everything was there in the trunk . Not sure of history on the car or what work was being done so I've got some work ahead of me finding out what's going on with it.
Finally getting to a point where I've got some time to start doing some work on the car. I've had several Camaros, Trans Ams , Mustangs, etc .... but never a turbo Buick . I've got a lot to learn about this car .
With not knowing what's going on with the motor , I'm thinking about just getting it rebuilt . Hoping to find a reputable shop that's not too far from me to take the motor to without me having to have it shipped . I'm about 30 minutes east of Memphis TN so if anyone knows a shop please let me know.
Looking forward to gaining a lot of GN knowledge from this forum !
( I'll get some pics up soon for anyone wanting to see a dusty GN )

Welcome to the forum! And black crack! I am in Virginia, and there's some good shops in NC as well. People are very helpful on here so ask away. Lots of action on the Facebook groups as well.

Welcome to the site. Beautiful country in Tn. As mentioned, there is a lot of info available here.
Unfortunately when you get bitten by the Buick bug, it's more like getting swallowed whole.
You will notice the fun factor increase proportionately as your bank account decreases as well. Lol Remember, a dusty GN is better than no GN at all.
Again, welcome.

Welcome , well you have had the rest ,as you mention, now try the the best . A dusty GN and a little TLC and $$$ will make you a believer.
I'm in eastern TN a long way from west TN. All the great GN gurus I'm familiar with live way east of you ,VA,NC,PA, MD. But I do remember
a thread a while back about a GN Tech near you in Holly Springs ,MS. Maybe someone will chime in on that person name ? Good Luck ..
