Conan O’Brien is very open about the ongoing love affair he has with his Ford Taurus SHO. While the SHO is a pretty cool car, when you factor in the obvious handicap of being built out of a Ford Taurus (more like SNOREus, am I right?), Conan has really stepped up his game since he started making the big bucks on the Tonight Show. On last night’s episode, Conan was spotted shoving a body into the trunk of what appears to be a Buick Grand National.
Last night’s episode featured Conan’s ongoing quest to cash in on his celebrity status by taking an embarrassing photo of himself and selling it to a tabloid. Conan’s latest attempt involved dumping the body of The Fonz into a Grand National’s trunk with the assistance of Tom Cruise and a bottle of tequila.
The Buick Grand National was a hotrod version of Buick’s mainstream Regal coupe, similar to the wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing Taurus SHO Conan brags about so often. The Grand National came with a turbocharged V-6 engine and made 276 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque in its most potent form, the GNX.
