Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat is a common demand heard from pirates, hobos, or this season's political candidate de jure, this being Halloween. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Buick Roadmaster has a 6-speed conversion that's pretty trick, and which should make driving it a treat, but is…
Be on the lookout for the Buick Grand National and truck pictured above. It's owned by a member of the TurboBuick.com forums and was was apparently stolen this weekend in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Details below.
The spokeswoman featured in this commercial had men buying cars for her entire life. From the really cool Nash Metropolitan her Dad purchased for her to the significantly less cool Malaise era GM clamshell station wagon provided by her husband, the car making decisions had been made for her by someone else.
New York filmmaker Andrew Filippone Jr. has chosen a righteous topic for a documentary: the Buick Grand National, the factory hot-rod that kept hope alive of a real renaissance within General Motors — rather incorrectly, in hindsight.
It's not exactly a secret that around here the manual is the transmission of choice. Even though they are harder and harder to find with each passing year, if we had our choice every vehicle made would forever have an optional manual transmission. With this in mind we started thinking about all of the cars that should…
The Buick Regal GS gets 270-hp, 295 lb-ft of torque out of its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for a wheel-twisting 135 hp-per-liter, giving it the highest "SAE certified" hp-to-liter ratio. Unfortunately, all that power still gets pushed through the front wheels.
The 1972 Buick Centurion was different than all of the luxury cars that came before it, at least according to this vintage Car and Track road test. Even though Buick had previously been among the guiltiest offenders when it came to building soft, spongy and wallowy luxury cars, according to host Bud Lindemann for…
Far too often when an old junkyard full of classic iron closes, decades of restorable cars and valuable parts are cashed out for whatever the per ton rate of scrap metal is at the time. Thankfully this is not one of those stories, at least not yet. Although the owners of the 50 year old salvage yard in Maxwell, NE…
Welcome to Found Off The Street, our look at cars found on the cape that rust liked so much it decided to summer there; Cape Cod, MA. Today we have a 1965 Buick LeSabre 400.
MTV's Pimp My Ride had a simple premise: rapper Xzibit and his band of merry customizers would show up at your house and make your crappy beater awesome. A former "pimped car" recipient explains what happened when MTV left.
One of my favorite challenges from the first season of Top Gear USA pitted the hosts against one another in their favorite abandoned GM products. Rutledge Wood took the prize in a Buick Roadmaster Estate (and not just because the other hosts picked cars from abandoned brands). Perhaps as a "Thank You" for that…
Follow the logic: Vauxhall builds an Insignia-based coupe, meaning GM can build a Buick Regal coupe, meaning they can give it 312 horsepower and AWD and call it the "GNX." Just call us the kings of wishful thinking.
This 1952 Buick may have lost a few pieces of trim, but it's managed to hang on to its distinctive grille and front bumper, at least for now. Even though the Texas junkyard where this old Buick was spotted is likely the car's final resting place, at least it is going out with a grin.
Welcome to Found Off The Street, our look at cars found on the cape that rust liked so much it decided to summer there; Cape Cod, MA. Today we have a 1977 Volkswagen Beetle.
Being the top-selling U.S. luxury brand for 11 years was nice, but according to a list of gripes in a leaked internal document obtained exclusively by Jalopnik, they're also on the verge of becoming the new Buick. UPDATED
There are low mileage 24 year old cars and then there are Buick GNXs with 10 miles on the odometer. This example of the latter is currently listed on Ebay with no description other than the pictures seen here.
Welcome to Found Off The Street, our look at cars found on the cape that rust liked so much it decided to summer there; Cape Cod, MA. Today we have a 1962 Buick Invicta.
The early '90s edition of the Buick Skylark contend for some of the least worthy vehicles ever to carry the Buick name. One Washington car builder has the answer to the question "What if GM had allowed a convertible?"
Planes, Trains and Automobiles was hands down a great flick. Contrastingly, today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe 6.2 Diesel-converted Roadmaster is kind of plain, sounds like a train, and upon close examination, appears to be an automobile. But is its price all that and a bag of popcorn?
