Maybe. Not my favorite Caprice; but, not bad.

Yes I would. I owned a '76 Landau Coupe that I just loved. Unfortunately, cars from this era, especially in Michigan, were not much more than rust-buckets. After three years, it was a mess.

LOL, you had me smilin' when this one opened. I had one as a company car, not convertible though. You could have taken up residence in the truck of these things. And yes I would purchase one. When Rose and I got married our wedding party all rode in these too.

These were fairly nice cars, but when gas prices rose they became unpopular and never recovered imo.

My uncle had a 4-door in maroon that he kept in his garage after his next new car (a smaller Buick). He never drove it again. Had to be sold to pay for nursing home bills.

Not for me. I stepped out and into non American Brands when they got too bloated and bulky.

BTW, pardon my ignorance but the last I heard about Larry was that he was in a nursing home. Is he still with us? Does anyone have an update? Myron? In his own stern way, he was a very good friend to me and I will always appreciate it.
