Spot a Turbo Regal? Post up, maybe they're a board member. Being that these cars a far and few in between it would be nice to see just how many we come across on a day to day basis.

Just post what you saw, when and where. :cool:

Thanks for adding this, I was going to later tonight.
By the way, sweet looking Goat you have there:cool:
I bought one off the showroom floor in 05, and sold it to buy my Regal.

I think I have only seen 2-3 in the last year of daily driving.

I saw this car last Thursday on El Camino in San Mateo near 92 just after 6pm. After all of these years the car still as clean as the last time I saw it.

Edit: Come to think of it, I just Gnx6's super clean Canadian GN at the Euro car show/cruise in Blackhawk over the weekend too. Man seeing two GN's in 3 days without going to a meeting, car show or SBorel's place is a rare thing! Hehe

I saw an 87 GN parked in the Sunnydale, SF the other day, it still has Hawaii plates. Maybe it was imported recently

Sightings are so rare I thought I'd post this from Dec 17th 2007 :eek:

It's so rare that I ever see a Turbo Buick ANYWHERE these days. A few mins ago in San Ramon near Burger King on Crow Canyon I saw a white T-type with black rear bumper fillers, a dark chestnut right fender and what looked to be Chevy Rally wheels. Anyone on here? I've never seen this car before. At least I don't think so.

Sighting from August 2007 :eek:

I saw a 87 hard top GN with a painted 86 grille at
the 76 station on Alhambra Ave in Martinez at about
4:20pm yesterday. I talked to the owner for a bit and
he mentioned that the car used to be his father's
before his. Pretty nice car.

This one is from March 2007 when we were on our way to SFO to head off to New Zealand for 3 weeks :eek: :eek:

I saw a pretty nice looking 86/87 GN headed west on
24 a little after 3pm Fri after noon on our way to
SFO. Anyone on here. Looked to be a guy and his girl.

From Feb 9th 2007 :smile:

It's so rare that I EVER see a GN or T-type on the
road I thought I'd post. Last night at around 10pm a
86 or 87 GN got on west bound 580 at Hacienda. The car
had at least one lit gauge on the a-pilar and the
windows were tinted all around. One thing I noticed is
that the inside lights appeared to be the low beams. I
tried to give a peace sign but I don't think you saw
me through your tint and my tint lol.

From Oct 2005 :eek:

I saw a white T-type with black GNX flares, some
Centerlines from the mid 90's(popular on trucks)and a
missing header panel on Crow Canyon sitting at the
left turn lane for San Ramon Valley Blvd at about 2:15
in San Ramon today. Sounds like it ran good. Anyone on
here?

Okay last vintage sighting I promise! Now I have somewhere to post them :D Oct 2004 I've seen this car several cars since and I've yet to catch up with the owner. The wife of the guy that had a vision of a roadster while in Vietnam and built when he came home told me that it may be for sale last summer. The shows moved to Sun Valley Mall now.

Was anyone on here at this afternoon's car show at
Kinder's Meat & BBQ in Pleasant Hill on Taylor and
Morellow? I saw a pretty clean light blue 87 "T" with
a trailer hitch on the back. I wanted to go check it
out but I was in the middle of pluging a tire on my El
Camino at the Shell station. Nice car =) That's a
really neat car show that is every friday afternoon
til about dusk. That's the 1st time I actually saw a
Turbo Buick there before. I heard there's a guy that
goes there often though.

Spotted an 87 white T today with the blackout package in the Richmond district, SF. Spoke to the guy in charge of it and he said he wants to sell it for 5000. It has partial GN interior, single shot exhaust, and appears to be a project car.
