1983 Buick Electra/park Avenue Diesel — I bought this car in Canton, South Dakota where it had apparently sat for sometime. The car ran fine when I purchased it for 600 bucks, but towards the end of it's life it began to smoke horribly and was hard to start. It came stock with a 350 Olds. Diesel that was pretty easy on fuel and it was pretty funny to see the reactions on peoples faces when they saw the diesel emblem on the deck lid or heard it running at a stop light.

Pros: Body was very straight and most electronics worked great. I love big cars and this one is a boat.. able to haul 6 guys comfortably.

Cons: Smoked horribly towards the end of it's days.

Car Ran Well And Lasted Long As A Whole — Trans went twice, but the car itself lasted nearly 20years. The 6cylinder was nice too.

Pros: Big engine for a Buick

Cons: Too fancy for my type of living

The Last Of The Rwd Line: 1984 Buick Electra Park Avenue By GuyNewport

The pros and cons pretty much sum it up. It's a good older car that gets about the same MPG as a modern pick-up and is much nicer to drive on long trips with the added panache of the ancient body styl... Read More

It's A Good Demo Derby Car, That's About It By Kenneth

Huge car + 307 Olds engine = poor acceleration. Took effort to churn tires on tar. The tie rod on my specific car was far out of alignment, so it handled like crap, pulled to the right hard. Brakes w... Read More
