I have always been a fan and owner of the 86-87 Turbo Regals, 98-04 Regal GS cars, and the Buick GS cars of the 60s and early 70s ! [Linked Image]

Yeah, I like BUICK.
My first car was a '68 LeSabre 2dr w/ a Buick 350 cid(not a Chevy 350). The 5 push button radio stations spelled B-U-I-C-K

I also had an '83 Regal w/3800 V6 & 2bbl, that I bought used. Only had ~120 hp. The ride was smooth & quiet. Numb but, smooth & quiet! laugh

My dad had a '74 Electra 225 w/455 cid w/~210 hp. Slooooooow but what a cruiser. Thing weighed 5500 lbs.

My 1968 Electra 225 (375 HP, 430 cu in) was NOT slow - but only got about 5-6 mpg.

I've always liked mid 60's big B body GM cars with a full perimeter frame. The first was a '65 Pont GP 421 and later mostly Buick Wildcats as I found them to be strong, the larger brakes and less thrashed and priced. I'd keep a late G body El Camino for the hauling but for many years had the last use of the GN turbo in the '89 Turbo Trans Am. So, along with a Catalina, lFiero GT, Aussie GTO and '66 Riv and 225 over the years, I covered a lot of BOP- without the O

We have a 2006 Buick Lacrosse CX w/ 3.8l V-6 with 46,000 honest miles . Love it .

Caution , if you have a 3.8i , replace the plastic coolant elbows with metal coolant elbows .

This will probably be the last or next to last car we will buy . Getting older .....

God bless

My first car was '56 Special, nailhead V8 and extremely rare three speed manual - 3 on the tree. Bought it from my grandfather who had purchased it new. Loved it. Family ownership before my becoming 16 included a '65 Wildcat which, as a teenager, I thought was the most beautiful object I had ever seen. We had a succession of Oldsmobiles of that class (including 442's) and even one Pontiac a '65 LeMans with the also rare overhead cam 6. The mid 60's GM styling is just magic in my opinion. So many good looking cars from that era.

The 1970 455 had more torque than any other car engine built. People used to pull airstream travel trailers with them. The axle gearing was only 2.7 or so.

Yes, I believe that Dad would claim about the same MPG with his '74 laugh
