Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon

3 posts in this topic

anybody own one? What do you think of it?

I have a '95 Caprice... same car, but the Buick is more luxurious and has a different grill... oh, and some have the cool vista option.

My Caprice is a stripper (manual windows... LOL), but it is comfortable and pretty darn quick for a big car. 260hp from the LT1. There are several places to get info on these...,, quite a few more.

My Caprice is also fairly high mileage... I think it was in taxi service... I got it cheap, and its been more reliable than I expected. I get about 19.5 mpg on the highways at 80+. Most parts are pretty cheap as well.

The only complaint I have with the '91-'96 B-body wagons is the sloped rear roof/window hatch. I also have an '88 Pontiac Safari and a '86 Buick LeSabre Estate Wagon... the old boxy wagon has a taller rear entry. I used to drop engines into the back without problems. The '91-'96 cars the opening is only about 29 inches tall... so you get a bit of a pinch going as you slide larger things in the rear. Also the license plate is on the gate... not the bumper... so driving with the gate down potentially can piss off law enforcement, as your plate is not really visible.

These are minor complants. If I could have found a nice, clean Buick Roadmaster, I would have hopped on it... I feel these are some of GM's last great cars.
