1973 Electra Limited 4 door hardtop

It's nice for the price. Buying one in this condition allows me to chip away at issues and not undertake a complete restoration. In the garage in front of this car is a car that has been sold. Once that goes, it will go inside and get a car cover. I can detail the engine compartment over the winter. I noticed a small exhause leak I think at the passenger side manifold so those will come off and I will fix that. Cruise worked for a bit on the drive home, then stopped. So I will track that down. Those are minor annoyances. Exhause itself looks brand new. It still has it's window sticker and is heavily optioned and totalled $7700 new. The dealer ordered it for the owner and the dealer name and location (no longer in business) is on the window sticker and there is a badge on the trunk. Appears to have it's original spare but maybe not.

I like those big 4-dr hardtops...compare this to what is available now: a SUV (stupid ugly vehicle)

"reminded me of the commercial for Cordoba"

Yaaz, weeth eets Coreenthian brocade... Lovely old boat, I mean beaut. That period of full-size GMs, '71 to '74, have really aged well, especially their thin-pillared, curvaceous greenhouse. They carry those massive Federal bumpers with unusual grace. Buick could have made these 8-passenger cars, if they'd just siimmed down the doors, like today's cars.

I've been noticing that Brown has come back as a colour of choice among new cars. Chrome's already stylish again and, mark my words, vinyl tops are next.
