    Ask any full size Buick owner what comment they hear about their car most often, and they will tell you its the typical "what a boat." The most overused, unoriginal and stupid comment ever. So when I was leaving a car show recently with my '67 Electra I heard a creative new take on the tired boat comment. As I was pulling away, I heard a girl say, "watch it when it goes looks like a mattress!" That made my day- I laughed about it all the way home!

    I get " They dont make em like that anymore" My reply is thats probably a good thing. Then theres ppl that will argue it was built as a front wheel drive and I modified it. Others insist that the GSX Riviera was one of the rarest cars made( their correct). My all time fave was the guy that walked up with a perfectly serious look on his face and said "nice GTO man" I just said thanks!

    If that were real it'd have the scoops on the hood and correct air cleaner
