Ok, lotsa ?'* to answer.

I used my dad'* 1988 Dodge Ram Van and a tow dolly to bring the car home as the tranny will only work when it is cold (first 2-3 minutes of running cold), otherwise there is no moving under it'* own power. Drivers seat is there, but it has a spot where the previous owner spilled something on it and didn'y clean it and it ate all the color off the leather.
So since it doesn't have heated seats and I am going to get new seats I will get Park Avenue Ultra heated seats.
Yes, the title is clean and mileage accurate. The previous owner had the car since May, 2002 and drove it 42k. And it matches up with Carfax.
4-wheel disc are gonna be awesome, but spendier than turning drums and brake shoes. At least I might be able to upgrade to GXP equipment or better. The big car could use heavier duty brakes.
I will be doing the portholes, but not yet -I got do what needs to be done first, so probably will get the portholes in the summer, allong with B-pillar chrome.
For rims I'm gonna get some chromies and put Vogues on. although that probably won't be for a while considering the Avon tires that are on the car now have about 80% tread yet.
Interior room is incredible. No center console making the front cramped, and the rear seating room and legroom is HUGE.
I'll probably do a few mods to this as I'm sure it is gonna be a bit slower than my SSE, so I'll need to bring it up to speed with dual exhausts (might swap in stock Park Ultra mufflers with a Carsound high flow cat and a 3" DP), a CAI, Belden wires, plugs, TPS mod, and a 160 amp alternator for the stereo system I may install.

Will take more pics when I have time as I am supposed to be helping my brother move today since we finished 90% of the remodeling of the new house yesterday.

A magnaflow would be gorgeous on that motor/car... Just keep a resonator on it.

Maybe chrome torquestars... Nah too sporting. I wonder what the back would look like with tinted tails?

Jason, I don't want the car to be too loud so I am going to see if I can get some stock mufflers from a PA Ultra (they have about the same exhaust as 00+ SSEi'*), and put a 3" DP and Magnaflow/Carsound cat in there just like I did in my gold SSE -wasn't too loud was it? But it sure flows nicely compared to before.
I really am extremely happy with the way the engine runs with it'* rebuilt heads and new upper intake manifold, all installed back in September. This engine is extremely tight and I have a feeling it will be a very strong runner with an intake, 3" DP, Cat, 180* t-stat, and maybe some ported mani'*.
I'm thinking rims and tires just like these would look tight. This is my mom'* 1993 Buick Park Avenue Ultra.

Nice. I love Park Avenue!

Hey, I didn't know that Ultra was available in Park Avenue in 1993.

Is yours a Prestige or a Sedan?
