Post pictures of past Buicks that you have had

I regret selling this one just about every single day, especially now that this accursed Lincoln has taken its place...

Can't find the picture of my 1970 Buick LeSabre 4 door hardtop yet but will post when I do.

Great highway car and was purchased from an older gentleman that in his day towed a house trailer with it. Consequently the 350 was a bit tired but more than capable of towing my tandem snowmobile trailer loaded and ready for fun!

My first car in 1973 when the car was only 33 years old and I had just started high school.  The car was complete and came from CA; it didn't run. I had spent summers cleaning old grease from the chassis, rebuilding engine, carburetor, generator, etc and wire brushing surface rust.  At $1.65 an hour on a part time job the restoration was going to take years.  I had just about finished rebuilding the engine when I started college.  I was out of time and the car was sold.

I read this as YOU were 33 not the car.  I had to re-read several times. Lol

This was my 1973 Century Regal I had back in the early 90s.   It had been converted to RHD and I restored it, having a decent amount of rust around the back window area.  Regretfully sold it because was too hard to shuffle two small kids in and out being a 2 door.  I would buy it back if ever surfaced on the market for sale.

 This was my company car that I Special ordered in 1985. The Century had all power options, 3.8 liter and a burgundy cloth interior. Sweet car but I was involved in a T- bone crash, passenger side when someone took a red light. Unfortunately the insurance co totaled.

About 10 years ago with the new owner driving away (that was a transfer of aggravation....he is about to spend 6 months and $5000 replacing computers).  I can't even remember the year of the Reatta...good riddance!

My 97 Lesabre. Had it from April if 2014 to December 2017. Transmission was leaking about a quart a week,about a quart of oil a month, and some antifreeze from somewhere.  Also needed paint and tires. I figured It’d be cheaper to buy a new one than fix what was wrong with it. But I sure do miss the Maroon leather interior
