The LAST Grand National To
Be Featured at MCACN
Over the years at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, we have had
the honor of hosting some very significant firsts and lasts from the
Muscle Car world. This year is no exception, and the list of firsts and
lasts is the most extensive to date. Today we want to tell you about one
that is truly a significant piece of Muscle Car history. The 80’s are
certainly not thought of as the best years for American Muscle, but there
were several cars that certainly left their mark. The Buick turbocharged
T-Types and Grand Nationals are at the top of the list, and gave us all
some hope. With the black out trim and a high winding Turbocharged V6, the
GN certainly is a prime Muscle Machine. When introduced, the national
media took notice and in ‘84, the sleek black screamers really took off.
Grand Nationals have it all; comfort, handling, style and incredible
performance. If you’ve ever driven one, you know what I mean and if you
haven’t, you will be surprised! Produced from 83-87, they are already
sought after collectibles.
With that being said, I am thrilled to announce we will be hosting an
amazing display featuring the very last GN. This car was purchased by a
performance minded GM dealer named Bob Colvin in Louisiana who took
delivery right off of the Pontiac, Michigan assembly line on December 11,
1987. The entire process was documented and they even did an official
documentary titled "Black Air" that chronicled the car and the
event. Mr. Colvin built a special addition to his home specifically for
this car and all of the related memorabilia. He has owned this car since
the day it left the line, and it has been shown just three times since. We
are truly honored to be able to host such a significant piece of American
Muscle Car history, and the family that took delivery. You will be able to
hear the whole story right from the source including how he obtained this
car. He actually did not know this was the very last Grand National until
the day he arrived to take delivery! This car is a true time capsule and
Mr. Colvin’s collection of related goodies is truly a sight to see.
In addition to this amazing GN, we will have a very special display of
General Motors G-Bodies from 1983-1987. This includes a one-off Hurst
prototype, a gorgeous 83 Hurst/Olds and one of the nicest Monte Carlo SS’s
you will ever see. The 80’s may not have been the hey-day of muscle, but
there certainly were some awesome cars being built!
We are just five weeks away now, and nearly every part of the show is
