Default new north texan

hi, i'm jeff. i live in the dallas/ft worth area. just bought my 94 Buick Park Avenue less than a week ago for $500. it runs great, it'* just a little ugly....but i can fix ugly. don't know what plans i have for it yet. some fellow enthusiasts have suggested a top swap on my 3.8 v6, but that will have to come much later down the road. not much to look at, but here are a couple pics.

good side:

Welcome to the forum. That looks like an easy and fairly quick fix

Welcome to the GM Forum. That should be a reliable daily driver for you, or a sleeping rice killer if you do the top swap. Either way, nice car!

Welcome to the forum. That car has a lot of potential. I have the same car in a different color and it has been great. It has some features that can't be found in any other vehicle from that time frame. I was surprised to find that the original list price for that model was several thousand dollars more than the original list price of the Bonneville SSEI. You only have to drive one to see why. Good choice
