Default Well i might be getting a 68 Buick Electra *updated Pics*

Down the road from my brothers there is a old guy selling a 1968 Buick Electra WildCat
Its a realy good shape for the year, its a Dark Silver, Inside is in grate shap!, Has a few vary small rust spots, Only has 68,000 miles on it, and it has the Buick 430 Big block

-430 V8 360 bhp @ 4600 rpm, 475 lb-ft @ 3200 rpm

Hes asking 3,500, but hes think that car itsn't worth mutch so i know i could talk him down to like 2,500 or so...

When my borther went and check it out the guy reached in throw the window and started faster then any new car could start, so its a good runner!

Man i hope i can get this car, its sooooo nice lookin, and i love these big Lead sleds

Sounds like the hood is long enough to land a small aircraft on.

If you do buy it, good luck with it
