With the current trend of keeping Turbo Buicks stock appearing or bone stock, a couple of options for upgrading the stock radio or installing a stock appearing, modern unit have surfaced. First, you can modify the stocker to add an input plug to play your ipod, the ‘do it yourself’ instructions are at the bottom of the page HERE.  The second option is to install an 80’s style retrosound stereo available HERE. As always, the club is not responsible for any products or services we make members aware of. We recommend you research any product or service to decide if it will be right for your setup.

New product: ‘Window Turbo’

Turbo Buick guru Richard Clark will be offering a new product called a ‘Window Turbo’ that increases the movement of slow power windows. Richard states the installation is easy and there is no removing the door panel, no cutting or splicing wires. The first run is sold out, the second should be available in mid February. To get on the list or get more information email Richard at  richardclarksgarage@gmail.com

Here is a youtube video after the install

More Avista pics

buick-avista-111-1020.0The Verge website posted more pics of the new Buick Avista today. Overall reaction from the public and press is very positive. Buick has to take notice and consider production.

Why do we care? Well, if the Grand National is revived on this platform, it could mean a renewed interest in all GN’s and T-Types and bring more people to our club. We’ve been keeping the Turbo Buick torch alive for 25 years, it might be nice to see some new ones on the road. Twin Turbos, V6, RWD and two doors are what people have been hoping for and it’s all in the Avista package.

Buick has also recently renewed their ownership of the name Grand National & GNX for use on a vehicle, so who knows? For more close pics go HERE
