1985 Buick LeSabre Limited (Collectors) 2 door 307 v8
The best Oldsmobile powered Buick
Power antenna, cassette player.
The only time this car was on the side of the road was due to a flat tire.
Super reliable for being driven hard and constant in the 6 years of ownership. The 307 was a good runner, but a little on the underpowered side. Not a single thing went wrong with it. Before this car was an '82 Electra with the same motor, but with a different cylinder head design that had more power.
Interior was handsome roomy and very comfy. The car was loaded with all options minus leather and rally sport wheels. It even had a factory sunroof, which made it fun to drive, and being a 2 door gave it a nice formal look.
After this car came a couple of front drive LeSabres and a Park Avenue over the years. All were great cars, but in my mind the '85 model year was the last for what a LeSabre really stood for.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

How would you compare the ride quality of the 82 Electra and 85 LeSabre? How would you compare the ride quality of the front drive LeSabre and Park Avenue going over rough roads compared to the older models? Which of your cars did the best in isolating you from bumps, potholes and expansion joints?
