The nineties, that was the last decade that a select group of Dutch uncles and (grand) fathers still bought brand new American Fords, Lincolns, Mercuries, Chevrolets, Buicks and Cadillacs. Nothing sporty or tall, I’m talking about the segment of the big, low-riding, family-oriented cruisers.
Something like this Buick, with its first registration in the Netherlands on June 7, 1991.
The Roadmaster Estate Wagon’s V8 didn’t even get an LPG conversion; which would have resulted in substantially lower fuel costs, yet at a higher road tax price.
Is that a dog or a hairy calf?
The Buick is parked next to a more Europe-oriented “big” wagon, a 2010 Skoda Superb with a 160 DIN-hp, 1.8 liter turbocharged gasoline engine. The small green hatchback is a Peugeot 106.
