While TTAC is known for Panther Love above all else, there are some of us here who possess an iconoclastic streak and long for a General Motors B-Body. The LT1 powered Buick Roadmaster is arguably the finest of the bunch, and an essay in today’s edition of The Globe and Mail illustrates why.
Reader Mark Harding, who admittedly uses his bicycle more than his car, professes his love for his 1993 Buick Roadmaster in this essay. While Harding primarily enjoys the Roadmaster on long highway trips, he also seems to take a certain delight in the Roadmaster’s imposing presence, small block V8 engine and overall character, which is at odds with the general ethos of Toronto’s left-leaning downtown neighborhoods, where Harding apparently resides.
It’s nice to know that in a city where car ownership is not always easy thanks to limited parking and high gas prices, one man is keeping the B-Body flame alive.
