the lesabre has one more year and then the lucerne will replace it. but the lucerne gets a higher price tag than the park avenue for some reason

Are they reusing the lower GXP bumper or what.

Back end isn't a Buick (bad thing IMO, i liked those PA butts) interior is nice for GM, we'll see how it gets revised along the line.

Harmon/Kardon? They're best speakers were made by Paradigm. Sadly now they just have HTiB setups, and average recievers.

The LeSabre is shorter PA right?

it really looks like they pulled parts out of a parts bin and said "this'll look good on it." I am seeing parts from all different types of cars. I see the gated shifter and shifter handle from the Aurora. The mirrors are also very similar. The center console is setup very similar to how the Riviera was setup. The rear door setup is Bonneville, so is the front bumper area. The headlights are Rendevous. From the looks of it, I'd say the new G8 is probably going to be similar to this car.

They killed the profile the PA had. The PA has a presence to it, that this car looks like it'* lacking.

hm, we'll see.

Lucerne is a kind of milk that is sold at Safeway Grocery stores. Just seems odd to me to associate milk with a car
