Default Rise of the Bog Buick, from northern Illinois

Back in November I found a 94 Park Ave with 28,608 miles on it, owned by a former Marine (God rest him) who apparently had nothing better to do than take his car to the shop for every little thing. His wife traded the Buick in for a little green Prius!

The Buick is a great looking car that is perfect inside and out.

I plan to make this car go for another 300K miles, and want to learn how.

I say Bog Buick, because my wife and I live 3 minutes from Illionois' famous Volo Bog AND Volo Auto Museum, which has the only surviving original Robocop ride, a 1988 Taurus. Wow.

Welcome, I'm in Lindenhurst, just 15-20 minutes east of fox lake down Grand.

Good to see some local faces here.
