    68 Wildcat Wildcat parts? What Wildcat parts?

    Looks sketchy at the back of the vinyl roof. Otherwise, just the usual rust outs. Interior couldn't be more plush! You could lose a cell phone in those seats!

    Decent looking car for the most part. I see a little bit of rust. Looks like the front window molding is missing.

    No, the 1976 model is smaller.
    I want the bigger and also better looking model year 1975 car, with the centre console.

    76 is just as big as the 75. You're thinking of 77 when then they got smaller.

    No, I'm thinking model year 1975 and model year 1976.
    1975 is the bigger car.

    The Park Avenue option package was available on the model year 1975 and the model year 1976 Electra Limited 4 door hardtop sedans.

    And here is the 1976 Buick brochure:

    Lol, They must’ve used thicker washers in the bumpers for there to be that minuscule of a size difference between the two years

    The color of this one is hideous almost as bad as 72 Sierra Tan

    LOL, you got me. I concede, the 1976 is 2.5 mm shorter than the 1975.

    Well, it's like an important car race: the car that's crossing the line .1 second quicker is the National Champion.


    I like the front of the 1975 model year better, and it's also the biggest 4-drs hardtop sedan built by General Motors.
    Wow!! [​IMG]

    And the model year 1976 was using a shorter centre console.

    Yes, it so hideous that in some strange way it is starting to look beautiful after a while.
    Hard to explain, I think it's a "nostalgic time period thing"?

    I've got an old French clock like that. It's so wretchedly ugly that it's actually beautiful, much like anything Mopar built in 1959-60.
