Oh Regals can be made to look more bad A$$ then a bonneville. White regal with gray lower paint, and blacked out tail lights....
No matter what you do to it, its still a Buick. Its all in the name I agree, their nice cars and would probably buy one if I had extra money laying around as a work/business car.

All of the cars I have owned have been Buicks. Know why? One word... Quality. It really doesn't matter what it looks like as much as how good the quality is on it. (to me anyway)

Quality, I thought you were more interested in the car because it is faster than a Bonneville? Just from your other post.

I agree with you on the quality. That year only has a couple recalls on it, but nothing major. I test drove a 97 GS and really liked the ride. Definately smaller than a Bonne though, can tell just by looking in the back seat.

that'* not it at all. I was looking at them because of their size, gas mileage, comfort rating, etc. It wasn't about speed. Infact, that really doesn't matter that much. The only reason I am even looking at something else is because of mileage and driving issues. I've been putting like 500 miles on my car a week and thought maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to get something with low low miles so I could drive it for a long time without worrying about it too much.

I heard a Honda Civic gets good gas mileage and can be easily customized.

Take care of your car (nott saying you don't) and you can drive it for a very long time. Even if something were to happen and you have to replace a motor, you can get a S2 3800 for 700 bucks and a tranny for about the same.

Im not saying I dont like my Bonne more....dont get me wrong Bonne is my girl dawg!
But the Buick is a quieter smoother better handling faster car albiet its only queter cause my Bonne has a loud azz exhaust, but theres nothing you can say to the fact that I can do suspension mods and I have 4wheel disc brakes!!! But there is more space in the Bonne and it looks like WAY more badazz..........Im just stickin up for his choice of the Regal cause they are VERY nice cars.....plus theres just something to be said for the sleeper factor of a 4 door Buick......old man car or ROCKET on wheels....you just dont know till its too late....MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
