CC Outtake: Battle of The Big, Bad Buicks – LeSabre vs Lucerne

Anyone thinking a 1973 Buick LeSabre is a small car needs to have their temperature checked.  At 18.7′ in length, it’s nearly one-sixth the length of the Wright Brothers’ first flight at Kitty Hawk.

Will you ever be able to see a GM B-body of this vintage the same again?

But that first picture makes the Buick Lucerne parked next to it look stubby.  So let’s swap angles.

Did you know the Lucerne is only 20 inches shorter in length?  The Lucerne is also one-third foot taller than the LeSabre.  But the LeSabre is so gargantuan…..

Seeing these two together near the front gate of Ft. Leonard Wood created just enough dissonance, so spreading the joy seemed like the thing to do.
