Arizona Auto Scene’s Buick Regal Limitet Turbo Project

Arizona Auto Scene has been looking for a project car for some time now. We tossed around a lot of different ideas for cars that would be suitable to bring with us to the events we cover. From ‘51 Chevys, a ’60 Cadillac, late ‘50s Chevy or GMC pick-up truck, to a C6 Corvette Z06, we have considered many options as there are many great choices out there.

Some of our concerns with the older cars were their age and reliability, and the fiscal demands of a restoration that would keep the vehicle on the road week after week. After much thought about what ride would best suit our motoring needs, we concentrated on finding a Mustang SVO, Buick Grand National, T-Type Regal, with our last options being a late model Cadillac CTS V or C6 Corvette Z06.

On Sunday, we found a Buick Regal Limited Turbo. The car is 1 of 1,035 produced and has had 3 previous owners. It is completely stock with the exception of GNX style 16” wheels, a brake upgrade and a Scan Master. It came with some extra parts to boot. The factory cast T-Type Regal wheels, a GNX rear spoiler, 43 lb injectors, and a chip.

The body of the Buick is straight, but is in desperate need of a new paint job. Unfortunately, someone tried to save a buck and painted over the checkered factory original paint. The interior is worn and need some attention. The engine runs strong, but surely isn’t putting out the factory new 245 HP and 355 lbs of torque.

For now, the Buick is in storage. We’ll probably throw in the chip and injectors in the near future, but won’t get into anything big until the weather cools down in the Fall.

Arizona Auto Scene is looking for your help in naming our recently acquired project. Feel free to leave a comment with your suggestion for the project name.

Check back with ArizonaAutoScene.com to see the status of our project that is yet to be named.
