1996 Buick Roadmaster Limited Collector's Edition 5.7L LT1 from North America
Pure sophistication with an LT1 V-8
Not a thing.
Man alive, talk about a serious set of wheels. This thing is the ultimate in luxury. I had an Olds 88 Royale Brougham before, which was a great car, but the Roadmaster Limited Collector's Edition just cannot be beat.
It came with the 260 hp LT1 350, and for being a massive automobile, it hustles right along. It can't quite beat my 442, but she'll smoke any import compact, and that's a fact.
As for comfort, it is second only to the Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance. It has all of the goodies right down to heated seats and dual climate control.
I find it sad that the EPA alone is forcing America out of it's full-size car niche because of poor fuel economy. Only Rolls Royce can build a luxury car better than the US automakers. Even Mercedes feel cheap and thin.
I would recommend this car to anyone, old or young. It's smooth, rather quick, luxurious to the max, and looks downright forboding in black.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I think that the Buick Roadmaster Collector's Edition is an awesome car. It is very elegant, and it can beat just about any other car on the road without sacrificing comfort.

Best car I've ever owned. I have only had to replace the water pump, which is typical for the LT-1. She ran a 15.9 in the 1/4 mile on street tires with the air on, LOL.
