See pics 2003 Buick Road Master Slideshow by joeblackakathereaper | Photobucket

This popped up on Crags-list last night , 2003 with 27,250 miles one owner deceased .
The guy that was handling the estate had it listed for 6K , after taking it for a ride I knew I had to have it for my daughter . I offered him 5K cash on the spot and he took it . For such a big car I was some what cramped in the driver'* seat in fact even in the back seat . At first when you look at the car you think it'* really BIG , but for such a large looking car it'* rather small inside . That said I always have the seat all the way back in any thing I'm driving , so for some one else it may be just right . The car is very nice , very quite and tight like a new car . I think it will be close to perfect for my daughter , she only puts around 10K miles on her car a year so this should do her for a while . Car prices are pretty crazy right now so I think $5,000 is pretty good .

That'* a beauty! What year is it, because 1996 was the last year of the Roadmaster.

For a second I was tripping out because the plates belong to a 2006 Chevy Van, but then I reread the post and saw a van in the background, so it made sense.

A Roadmaster Wagon is on my bucket list.

I just noticed a detail that has me believing it'* a 1993.

Wow, congrats. I have a big soft spot for cars with a story like that.

Every time I see a Road Master my eyes pop put of the sockets!
They are really great looking sedans!
One thing is for sure your daughter will be safe in that ride!
It looks very clean and looks like it was well looked after, even garage stored. Nice!!

Well with the price of a brand new car today I'm reasonably sure she'll like it , especially after she gets used to driving it . If I were to keep it I would remove the driver'* seat and move it back about 4 inches , I would just have to do a little fabricating . Right now it'* just to close for me , but for a woman it should be perfect . Other than the seating the car is a real pleasure to drive , much like one of my Cadillac sedans I had back in the late 80'* . With 27,000 miles on it , it drives and handles like a new car off the show room floor . Very tight and very quite .

Got the PA today , very nice car . My neighbor a pretty good mechanic and I spent a couple of hours with it . I took it to the quarter car wash and cleaned up under the hood and put some gas in it . It was dead on empty from the dealer with the warning light on . I was worried I wouldn't make it to the gas station a mile away . We spent a couple of hours on it and so far all I can find is it really needs is Freon and a radiator flush . The car has a few very small cosmetic flaws but not many , it rides and handles beautifully . It'* quite and tight as a drum , pretty much like a new car . Even though I worked my butt off looking for these 2 cars , I consider myself lucky to have found them . Most of the time these grand parent'* cars stay in the family , so they are not all that easy to come by .

So call call me The-Lucky-Reaper!

Wow, good to hear it'* in such good shape. What is the plan for adding refrigerant? Now may be a good time to decide if you want to have it charged with R12, or converted to Freeze 12, R134a, or R152a. Also, I would look over every inch of the A/C system to find any signs of a leak, especially if you fill with R12.
