    Was a nice hot and humid day in a recent cut hay field. Along about 11:00 AM it got real cloudy and a bit windy. Wife checked her smart phone weather app and said no rain in the area. Yet I would guess half the cars and trucks were gone by noon.
    I had already made the rounds and taken the pictures of the stuff I wanted to.

    We were not the only Buick there. This other one was a GN maybe. Didn't sound like one and the hood was never raised.
    I need to learn how to look at the vin number to be sure.

    Our Buick looks blue on top instead of gray. wonder if the sun shade has any thing to do with that look?

    I love some of the storys we are told about the LaSabre Limited Collectors edition. I wonder if people do not relize we do know the Model.

    It came with 3 engine options, the 3.8 Liter V6, 5.0liter V8 307 cid Olds engine, and Olds 350 Diesel engine.

    Yet a man told us he had a 4 door model Collectors edition from the factory with a 35o Cid Buick Engine, used it to tow a travel trailer that the roof raised and lowered on.


    We have learned to smile and say the things so they don't go away mad.

    Interesting show, Al!

    I never heard about Minneapolis-Moline tractors, learned that the were taken over by White,
    And White also owned Oliver, that's a name I know from a tractor that was owned by local farmer in the area where I grew up.

    You even won a trophy!

    The car looks like the real deal.
    I'm not sure if you can tell if it's a real GN by looking at the VIN, or you have to know the last 6 digits of all the GN's built for that year?

    But it will tell you at least if it's a T-type with the turbo V6:

    Decoding the Buick Grand National VIN Number


    Example for a 1984 Regal Grand National: 1G4AK479XEH400001:

    1 = Manufacturing Country (USA)
    G = Manufacturer (GM)
    4 = Division (1 = Chevy, 2 = Pontiac, 3 = Oldsmobile, 4 = Buick, 5 = GMC, 6 = Cadillac)
    A = Restraint System
    K = Sales/Option leve (Regal T-Type)
    4 = Body Code (2 Door Coupe)
    7 = Body Code (2nd digit)
    9 = Engine Code (LM9 3.8L SFI Turbo)
    X – Check Digit
    E = 1985 Model year (E = 1984)
    H = Plant Code (Flint Michigan)
    400001 = Serial number

    Example for a 1985 Regal Grand National: 1G4GK479XFP400001:

    1 = Manufacturing Country (USA)
    G = Manufacturer (GM)
    4 = Division (1 = Chevy, 2 = Pontiac, 3 = Oldsmobile, 4 = Buick, 5 = GMC, 6 = Cadillac)
    G = Series (G body)
    K = Sales/Option level (Regal T-Type)
    4 = Body Code (2 Door Coupe)
    7 = Second Digit
    9 = Engine Code (LM9 3.8L SFI Turbo)
    X – Check Digit
    F = Model year (F = 1985)
    P = Plant Code (Pontiac Michigan)
    400001 = Serial number

    Example for a 1986 Regal Grand National: 1G4GK477XGP400001:

    1 = Manufacturing Country (USA)
    G = Manufacturer (GM)
    4 = Division (1 = Chevy, 2 = Pontiac, 3 = Oldsmobile, 4 = Buick, 5 = GMC, 6 = Cadillac)
    G = Series (G body)
    K = Sales/Option level (Regal T-Type)
    4 = Body Code (2 Door Coupe)
    7 = Second Digit
    7 = Engine Code (LC2 3.8L SFI Turbo)
    X – Check Digit
    G = Model year (G = 1986)
    P = Plant Code (Pontiac Michigan)
    400001 = Serial number

    Example for a 1987 Regal Grand National: 1G4GJ117XHP400001:

    1 = Manufacturing Country (USA)
    G = Manufacturer (GM)
    4 = Division (1 = Chevy, 2 = Pontiac, 3 = Oldsmobile, 4 = Buick, 5 = GMC, 6 = Cadillac)
    G = Series (G body)
    J = Sales/Option level (Regal, the letter K was supposed to be for a Grand National, but wasn’t used)
    1 = Body Code (2 Door Coupe)
    1 = Restraint System (manual belts)
    7 = Engine Code (LC2 3.8L SFI Turbo)
    X – Check Digit
    H = Model year (H = 1987)
    P = Plant Code (Pontiac Michigan)
    400001 = Serial number

    I just know if I see a Pontiac GTO I can tell it is a real GTO and not a LeMans up grade by the serial number. All GTO's have 641 in the Vin number.

    Lots of tractor companys merged in ther late 1970's and early 1980's.
    Case and International formed when International bought case.

    White was a combonation of Moine and Oliver and Cockshutt.

    I didn't win a trophy. Our Buick won. All the shows we have went to we have yet to see another LESabre Limited Collectors edition Coupe.
