The outside needs work, but it looks like a very comfortable car to drive.

Thanks for all the support. I really didnt expect any thing but a couple of chuckles.

It' not my first just somthing better suited for the winter than my mazda. I have allways wanted an SSEI/ultra or any of the */C'd GM'*.

The thing is plush compaired to the current state of the MX6. Both have bad struts but the 6 rides hard where the brick is good till I try to corner lol. I'm still getting used to driving it like a cruiser instead of a sports coupe.

I dont have any plans for the exterior right now but the interior will get scrubed thoroughly. I think somone might have puked in the rear.

First up will be some maintenance along with upgrades when I get the chance.

I'm still learning whats what with these cars.

I see the exact body style in about a dozen different names so the confusion is understood lol. It'* a Buick Electra 380 according to the badging.

Wish I had some pics of my 90 Electra PA Limited to compare. Mine was gold with taupe leather. Not a huge fan of the red on red.

but hey, if it runs, it runs.

Nice car! Reminds me of Oldsman105'* 1990? Lesabre limited (the interior) and the "The Legendary" 1989 Buick Electra.

That looks alot like one of my Lesabres. I have two 1989 Lesabre Limited'*, but am only driving one of them now (white, cabriolet top, continental spare tire, and whitewalls). I bought it from my dad with 89k miles in July and now it has almost 104k miles. :( Only problem so far is finding some replacement whitewall tires used (205/75/14).

And, YES, the seats in the Park Avenue, Park Avenue Electra and Lesabre Limiteds are some very, very comfy seats for bench seats. Now, to put a fresh set of premium struts in along with a FE2 front sway bar to match the rear and my Lesabre would ride better than my Bonneville (well, not quite, especially if I could get the ELC pump working/replaced in the SSEi).

If that were my only car, I'd put in a HUD, remote start/lock/unlock, lots of Hushmat everywhere, sometimes with two layers in a few areas, the best suspension pieces I could find, and various things of that nature. It would be really weird seeing a car like that pull up, park, see the owner get out, and then watch him as he uses the keyfob to lock the car with the ever-clear high pitched chirp of a very loud buzzer. That would make my day. Those things drive like yachts! They're a lot of fun.

I was actualy thinking about the GNX style wheels that came on the riviera turbo.

A few years ago there was a set in a junkyard but I had no use for them.
