Featured Car - Hal Humphrey's 1987 Regal Limited

Part of a "Turbo Trio" ...
As you can see by the picture on the right, this is just one of Hal's "Turbo Toys". he also owns a Typhoon, a twin turbo Vette and his beloved Buick.

Hi s Buick is a NICELY turned out Limited, with incredible horsepower to make it go even faster than it looks! Hal purchased the car new on Febuary 28,1987 and has lovingly modified over the years to it's present state.

Hal is obviously an avid collector of cool things and has always graciously shared various rare original documents about the TRs with GN/TType.org. You'll see his scans of things like the Stage catalog and the WE4 Dealer announcement on the site.
