    This is a serious question. Does anybody here like the Buick brand? Buick cars, anything along the lines of Buick?

    Would you be more likely to by a Buick brand before any other brand?

    I know we have a few in here. Im interested in hearing any input.

    I like the older buicks, but I wouldn't call myself a fan. I'd buy one though.

    I've seen a lot of promotions for their new Lucerne. I don't know much about Buicks though.

    Okay, this is good. What about the Regal did you like? Was that based off the Pontiac Grand Prix model?

    How did you even come to own that car?

    I always considered them a half-price Caddilac with a hot-rod heritage.

    I liked the way it looked, that specific model was very good looking and it was fast because it had the SC 3800 engine and at the same time it was comfy...it had a rather soft suspension setup but it was ok for a Buick, I've always liked Buicks...I got the Century from my dad when he bought the newer one in 1995 or so...great car I liked it a lot :)

    Mine looked exactly like this one:

    The new Lucerne actually looks nice. It's the first time I've seen dual exhausts on a stock Buick in a while, but it's still a sedan. Buick needs some hotrods to revive their image with the younger generations.

    In case your wondering, the reason Im making this thread is because I made a thread on the Car and Driver website concerning a remark they had made in their March issue concerning how the young "Buick enthusiests" were just unconfirmed sightings.

    Im just trying to get some data to validate what I said in the thread.

    Because it doesn't look like a refridgerator box with wheels. Interior is super-pimp too.
