    I only buy the finest winter beaters.



    Bam! $2200 for 4500lbs. of LT1-powered Buick magnificence!

    - 1994 Buick Roadmaster sedan
    - 83k miles
    - Many old-man bumps on the body
    - V92 towing package with G80 posi! No one-wheeled burnouts for me!
    - Sweet grandpa GPS

    Of course, nothing I buy is perfect.

    The AC is non-op due to a lack of refrigerant. But it isn't totally flat, in fact there's more 134a than I expected in there. Both service caps are missing, which isn't good. I've got a 30lb. tank of 134 so I'll charge that up. I also ordered some new service caps.

    The rear tires are newer, but the fronts are old. I ordered some cheap Kumhos.

    The blower motor either has something caught in it's wheel or a bad mount, because it vibrates on high speed. I'll look into that. Probably.

    The power antenna is dead, so I'm going to stick a cheap $10 parts store non-power replacement in there.

    I'll feel better if I change the battery before winter.

    Otherwise, everything else seems to work. It runs and drives great. This feels like a car that should have a bumper sticker or two, so I ordered a couple of mid-90s appropriate ones from ebay. Pic of that when they're here

    My Roadmaster wagon was an excellent winter beater. Good choice.

    To avoid curbing the wheels when I go to early-bird dinners at Denny's?
