Yes, there were alot of turbo 3.8'*. In the Grand Nationals as stated, and alot of them were converted to twins by their owners. None were produced in that manner by Buick.

those turbo 3.8s are awsome... a friend of mine has a rosewood t type with less than 10k on the clock and those miles are mostly burnouts for videos and local tv shows

As stated above, there have been many GNs with 3.8'* that were TT'd and he may have been thinking about that. I've never heard of a turbo Bonnie (that was proven). Although, hey you never know whats in store for 8-Ball
