T-type Lesabre — When I was about 19 or 20 years old I had a car in mind that was something I thought I'd never have. They were super rare and kind of expensive for a young kid. I found one in the Want Ads and literally jumped up and down with joy when I saw it. My father and I went the very next day to look at it and I handed the guy a wad of cash right on the spot.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Most everything.  It was gorgeous.

Cons: The font air dam was very big and prone to damage.  They were also very expensive to replace.  It wasn't very fast.

I Do Prefer The Older Cars As Compared To New. Easier To Work On. — Love the cushion style seating .Pillow on pillow type. Car really takes off when accelerated. A beast. I bought the car used. It was sitting in driveway for a few years only driven on occasion. Only had 51,000 miles! One minor ding in drivers side rear quarter panel, otherwise car is in great condition. One or two small rust spots.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Plenty of space and trunk capacity. Easy access to engine components.

Cons: Hard to find "used" tires for car.

1989 Buick Lesabre — Bought it for 800 bucks in williams lake, bc to drive back to ontario. It was amazing on gas, very roomy, comfortable to drive, cruised at 130 nicely on the hwy at about 35 or more mpg. quiet. did NOT handle too well in the corners at high speed, but with 4 winter tires i drove it through the rockies at xmas, and with snow roads and blizzards and all at about 100 kph steady with no problems. Car ended up overheating due to a rad hose leak and got valve damage, started burning lotsa gas so i junked it

Pros: quiet confy reliable cheap to run and repair

Cons: handling.....looks kinda ugly

Fast,never Breaks,cheap When It Does, And Looks Beastly When Painted — the car is a buick lesbare t-type made in 1989 with only just over 5000 made and im luckly enough to have one, and its the beautiful car and their fast when u build the motors up becuase the 3.8s can be beasts and u can turbo OR supercharge them and bascally do anything you want to them, and they look very good and when their finished most people dont even know their made by BUICK

Pros: their fast and u can do anything you want to the motors and body, their cheap to fix if somthing does go wrong

Cons: front wheel drive, uni-body

Its A Classic! - Well Its The Daily Driver And Winter Car Now. — "Grandma" owned it since it was new, traded it in for a brand new buick. 19 year old car with 80,000 miles that looked brand new.

Pros: Supper plush ride on Madison's pot hole filled streets. High ride hight to get through all of this years snow

Cons: Probably should have went to a collector somewhere to be kept in its pristine condition...

Runs Like A Brand New Car, Nice Smooth Quiet Ride. — I never complained about this car, I really loved it! I felt like this car was better than all those newer cars out there. I loved driving it everyday, it was a beauty. I wish I still had my Lesabre... maybe one day:)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything about this car was perfect, people say it's a grandmas car, I say it's one sexy car, you can make it into anything you want, I called it my lil lowrider:)

Cons: Nothing.....It's to good

I Like It — im not sure what to write. it is hard to start but its old. brakes are good except they rusted from the rain. the interior is gray but it feels cool. this car is fun because you dont realize how fast you are going. it gets good gas mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun

Cons: ugly
