Your car with all the work you did really looks good!!! Congrats again.

What stage or time period are we looking at?

Buddy of mine worked at a Buick dealer and was outside one day and a new car carrier came in with 4 1987 GN's on it. Three were black and one was yellow. He grabbed the owner of the dealership (they were buds) and he put a plate on one of the black ones (only one that was inter-cooled Turbo) and ended up buying the car. He STILL has it and it sits with 13,000 miles on it.

My neighbor has a buddy with a GNX that he put a twin turbo and larger exhaust. I forgot the exact 1/4 mile time but the car was quick. Too bad it's burgundy but nice anyway.

These cars were a nice revival of the muscle car from the 60's and not even V-8.

What's all that smoke from in your last picture? Was something burning?

Thanks.

I did the car in single stage nason paint. Turned put decent but got a lot of junk in the paint. I finish sanded the trunk and then just drove it since it looked good enough for me. So the rest of the car needs to be finish sanded, not sure if i will ever do it, maybe if i go to sell it i would. I read with single stage all the UV protectents in the paint rise to the top of the paint so if i finish sand it now, it might lose the uv protection.
