1996 Buick Park Avenue

This is very similar to my first car, the 1992 Buick LeSabre. I was hoping that NEO will make a light metallic grey one, but seems like that have stopped producing modern American cars, so I got this nice green one instead. A lovely model made by NEO.

Fantastic model Adam! I too bought this last month during one of the big sales! Had wanted one for ages and didn't want to pay the price. The shape seems spot on and the colour, well for me at least, is perfect for this combo was everywhere in the mid-1990s! Also love the detail on the beautiful seats that this gen and many Park Avenues have always had. Now, if someone would only make a 1980-1984 Electrca/Park Avenue in Coupe AND Sedan form, I'd be a happy man! Another great addition :)

I never really liked most GM cars from that time, but that NEO model surely looks quite nice! :)

I believed that they have introduced this new colour called Emerald Green back in 1994 and it was quite popular among Park Avenues and LeSabres. The interior on this model car was so detailed that it brought back a lot of memories. I can still recall sitting behind the wheels of my LeSabre when peeking into the interior of this model car. I can still remember the fake wood trim on the real car that were all made of plastic. My LeSabre had the Gran Touring Package that comes with the 16" alloy wheels that looks the same as this model car. The LeSabre and Park Avenue at the time were almost identical, except that Park Avenue was slightly bigger and had a different rear end and front end. Also, Park Avenues were offered with the optional supercharged engine of the 3.8 liter V6. But that normal 3.8 liter V6 was already very powerful and torquey. I liked the front end of the LeSabre a bit more, as they have put a large Buick badge onto the grille.

Cheers,
Adam

Talk about a car that you couldn't throw a dead cat without hitting one, they were everywhere I still see them around, not looking as nice as yours of course.
Model looks spot on.

These Buicks with the 3800 V6 are really reliable. I remembered driving my LeSabre for 78,000 kms and there were no major problems with it when I sell it. Guess that's why we still see them all the time after it ceased production for over 20 years.

Cheers,
Adam
