Yes, another car!

So the wife's Mercedes has more wrong with it than I care to get into. Fixing it up right now and building a racekar is just not in the cards so I had to find her something to drive in the mean time. Enter the new (used) car. 1999 Buick Park Avenue Ultra, has the 3.8L supercharged V6 and only 74K on the odometer. I have to say, this thing boogies! It's not as fast as the GTI but it's a hell of a lot of fun to drive and is a dream on the highway. Hopefully selling it and the Mercedes in a year and picking her up a Toureg or Tiguan. But for now it will do, other than just cleaning it up and general maintenance I have no plans for it. So here she is!
