(Fox News) – A rare 1987 Buick GNX muscle car with just 8.5 miles on the
odometer sold in an online auction on Friday night for $200,000, nearly
setting a record for the model.

The black coupe is number 480 of the 547 cars like it that were built, with
the last of them sold in 2017 for $220,000 after covering 68 miles in its life.

The GNX was an evolution of the Grand National with a turbocharged 3.8-
liter V6 officially rated at 276 hp, but suspected to put out much more, that
made it one of the quickest cars in the world.

During the Civil War on this day in 1862, about 14,000 Confederate soldiers surrendered to Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at Fort Donelson, TN.

The Union capture of the Confederate fort near the Tennessee
Kentucky border opened the Cumberland River, an important
avenue for the invasion of the South.
