I picked the Bonneville, but only in SSE trim.

I love the seats in some of those older cars, they are almost like recliners. Very plush and comfortable. They look outdated, but you can't match the comfort.

I like all, but picked Buick Electra/Park Avenue and Oldsmobile 98 because they were more upscale. So is the Cadillac, but this iteration of the FWD DeVille looks too small to be a Cadillac full-size.

BTW, were these Buicks generally called Electra or Park Avenue?

For awhile in the early-mid 80s, they were sometimes Electra Park Avenue... PA was like a luxury option... became its on series around 1987-88?
