I remember picking up the new Buick book back in 96 and I saw that the PA had changed body styles from the rest of the H-body fleet. That means that the PA had that style for 7 years now. Time for a change now. I see they retroed the side with the little chrome strip on the fender aain for all Buicks, I think.

The Park Avenue is a big mix but a c body and an h are very similar.

There is alot of performance product that works on the Park Avenue and the car is sportier than the Le Sabre.

Drop springs
Anti swaybars
Intake
Nos
Some years the pillars will cross with the 92-99 Bonneville, so some years will have pillar pod options.
4t60-e bulletproof transmission.
if you are dealing with a series 1 3.8 then read up on DR jays build. Basically it will need a turbo or sc swap. Either will give you a big boost.

Park avenue = possible sleeper with style.

Oh if you really want to go wild a v8 will fit.

you see, it does weigh that much, but it puts out so much torque that enough weight is transfered to the rear to keep the back wheels on the ground

The PA is one sexy classy ride, not quite as nice as my new car, but still nice, probably 5 on my list

Bonneville
Aurora
740iL
Lincoln LS V8
