1970 Buick WildcatReview
She's A Survivor And I Am Fortunate To Be In Charge Of Preserving Her For The Next Generation — My Wildcat is for all intents and purposes an 18-foot long two-seater. There is remarkably very little leg room in the front and the steering wheel is in my chest unless the seat is adjusted to its most rearward position.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: It's a convertible! And Wildcat convertibles were so rare even when new (~1200 built in 1970) I'll probably never see another one like it on the road, ever!
Cons: It's thirstier than a Kennedy at a open bar, and parking it can be a real PIA due to its size.
