This is a 1987 Buick Grand National that has 56 original miles found in Columbus Ohio and trailered back to NYC. We are pulling it out of the garage and giving it its first wash in 34 years! The Buick Grand National was faster than the Chevy Corvette in 1987 and was called "Darth Vaders Car" in various automotive publications. After we remove it from the Barn, we trailered it up to the AMMO Studio for a full restoration detail, foam wash, black paint polish with Rupes buffer, AMMO Reflex Pro, and a reveal to the owner at the very end of the episode. Be sure to watch the last clip of him starting the car for the very first time. Enjoy this car Barn Find episode. -Larry

  • i have a question. I wanna restore a BMW e38 which been sitting for at least 7 years under some trees. Do you think i can restore the paint with common compound, polish and wax? Because i wanna build this one up from the crankshaft up to the whipers and surely want it to look like its brand new. If i wanna guess this car should have only like 30kmiles which is nothing for a car like that and its too sad to look on this car just sitting around.
