1971 Buick Electra 225 455


Classic American Dream Car


Aside from routine repairs, the car was hit in the rear, so I replaced the bumper & the left taillight with a 1972 unit (Yes, they were mis-matched, but they fit).

General Comments:

This was my first car - it could have been my first apartment! But other kids had cheaper and smaller rides. I was lucky to have this classic old girl. I always wanted a Camaro or the like, but this car made me a lover of full-size luxury cars. I later had a 1977 Electra Limited and a 1970 Cadillac Sedan Deville - so yes I am hooked. By the way, the slant of the windshield is perfect for laying on the hood at the drive-in, and your buddies will fit in the trunk!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
