*Thanks Lakeville for promoting my "commercial"*

Yes, I totally agree with harofreak.
With the buick, not only you will get premium engine, premium suspension, and premium equipment (Just think about it, HEATED seats!), you will also get a premium body style. Buick Park Avenue is much longer and wider. So it will make you look more powerful.

And it also has a low milage for a 1998.

If it was me, I would go for the Buick. But that'* your decision. Even if you get the bonne, that is just fine. But I guarantee, that you would be more satisfied with the 1998 Buick Park Avenue ULTRA! <-The name says it all.

I was also looking at your guys' posts times. When do you people sleep???

Park Avenue all the way. Buick interiors are so much more refined and comfortable compared to a Pontiacs. If you want sporty go Bonneville. If you want comfort and class go with the Buick. The bonneville looks a lot cheaper though. For my tastes I always go with Buick.

I think you'd be happier with something like this:

I do like that Riviera Custom88 but i already own one of them(well my sister does and i can drive it anytime i want).

And yes the Bonnieville is in very good shape except for the small paint chipped off the front

What if you go to both dealers for a test drive? That way you can also talk with the salesman and have a more "in depth" look on the cars. By the way, are you in Michigan, Detroit?

Custom88, do you know if the Riviera will be relaunched?

Get the Ultra over that bonnie. if it was SSEi then it would be a difficult choice but the lowest end bonnie cost no where near what the PA Utra did. Plus the Park Ave was probably taken care of better since it is a Buick. But that is all asumptions.

In any matter the Park Ave is much faster, probably has same if not better handling, and it is a MUCH nicer car on the inside.

I doubt they're going to relaunch the Riviera... atleast for a long time. The Riviera was always a model that was on hiatus for a few years at a time but this time it'll probably be the longest one yet. Reason being is that the Riviera simply didn't sell. By 1999 they only sold 11,000 a year which was down from 150,000 in 1995. Either people ddin't like the styling, the fact it had two doors, or something else.. not sure. The first day I put mine up for sale I had a few calls, but none since then. (this was last week i put it up for sale.) That autotrader ad was of my Riviera. I would try not to sell it to anyone on here anyway. I'd always feel bad if there was something major wrong with it that just showed up when someone else bought it. I'd rather not have it be somebody I know. (not saying there is anything wrong with it because there isn't that I know of. )
