As Ranger91 said Buick going back in time.
But the most memorable of Buick's previous accomplishments to me, the Grand National during the 80's.
Most of our citizens are struggling to make payments on ugly plastic utilitarian soccer mom urban/assault vehicles. SUV/minivan/family crossovers were $30,000 to get a few amenities deemed necessary to make them bearable for all around use,even higher if the bigger engine/drivetrain was included.Most of the cars in this article are beyond the wildest dreams of most of us,and we are yearning for early '70 style value in pricing related to our mean income,in short vehicles without on-star navigation,computer opertated braking/rollover enhancements,and so many systems that simply won't work very long. A 396 Nova was a real blast,a RoadRunner seated 6,and they didn't cost more than the average annual income. Seems so simple.
Buy American, Now that F-ing hilarious, the most American made vehicle now is Toyota with their plant still in Tennessee (for the moment). I grew up in a family that gave their lives to the auto industry and I watch the few that struggle to keep their job just a little longer, I've been watching my family and friends all over the US all with jobs related to the auto industry losing their jobs.
GM, Ford, Dodge, Chrysler, what is left here in the US, what is Still in Canada is a fading thing. They have moved most of their plants down to Mexico to save cost on production. Funny thing is they raised the cost of their cars to the consumer. I have seen this first hand, in so many ways, and good luck to all of you who believe in buy American. Show me one product that is still made in America, even MOST of the flags you fly aren't even made here. Sad isn't it ?
