Never warmed up to the “beached whale” 1991-1996 Buick Estate Wagons? Well, how about a more conservatively styled 1990 Estate Wagon? This pretty scuffed-up 1990 Buick Estate Wagon was spotted by William Rubano. While it’s sure seen better days, I personally prefer these “square” Estate Wagons to the more radical 1991 redesign, like the (1996 Roadmaster Estate Wagon) I recently spotted.
The light-colored Di-Noc and “Estate Wagon” fender badges peg this one as a 1990 model. Although very worn and dirty, this Estate sports the aluminum wheels instead of the more commonly seen wire wheel covers. I feel like white was the most popular color for late-80s Estate Wagons
Like the ’91-’96s, the car’s size is best showcased from the rear-quarter angle. Despite this, the “square” B-body wagons don’t look quite as large. The more vertical rear window make the Estate look taller, helping to offset the car’s width. I’m also a fan of the open rear wheels, which make the car less sled-like.
