Who'd Steal a Buick?

Actor Sean Penn is looking for a new car, this after somebody stole his old one... and we do mean old! Police in Berkeley report somebody made off with the actor's 1987 Buick Grand National Tuesday while he was lunching in a Shattuck Avenue Restaurant. Besides looking for Penn's 16-year old Buick, they're also looking for the two handguns he had inside the car. Penn, who lives in Marin County, has a permit to carry the weapons

Sean Penn drives a 1987 Buick?

The 1987 Buick Grand National was a pretty sweet car actually, it was the fastest production car made that year, faster than a corvette, strangely enough, and is a pretty rare collectors item. It looks a lot like a monte carlo, it's buick's version of it, I can't remember if it's a v-8 or a twin turbo V-6.
