Wtf buick? 90 year old men aren't gonna wanna be seen in that! What were you thinking?

LOL, yeah, I think the twin turbos is a bit overkill for Buick's demographic. And I never understood the Cadillac roadster either.

Anyone remember the Reatta?

You mean besides the Riviera interior and performance lacking engine? There's only one Buick that's ever made me go "Where can I get one of those?" and that was the 87 Buick GNX. Now that's a hell of a Buick.

I don't think they'd want to be seen in the Grand National either, but that car was successful.

EDIT: elchango beat me to it, although I disagree with some of what he said. The earlier GNs were nice too, not just the 87 GNX. The old boats with Wildcats under the hood are sweet, and I kind of like some of the newer Regals/Rivieras that are SC'd.

By the way everyone, I like the looks of it and the idea, I was just joking about the old man thing lol

There's a lot of other cool cars on there. Anyone heard of javan? I know you brits have.

Don't get me wrong, I like the old school Buicks of yestercentury. It's the post 80's Buicks as well as Oldsmobiles I never really liked (with the exception of the Grand National and the Supercharged mid 90's Riviera). I liked the Riviera becasue it tried to push the envelope with it's styling. It was massively big, yet somehow it looked sporty. It didn't share designs with anything. It had a cool interior. I really liked it.

Oh come now, I know your car didn't start off as quick as you have it now. For it's day it had enough power to keep it ahead of most traffic, and as with anything else it can always be upgraded.

Just remebered, Regall TTs were sweet as well. Buicks aren't just for old people.

Yes, but my car didn't start out as a sports car. That's my beef with the Reatta, it was a sports car without the sports. It just doesn't float my boat I guess.
