Master The Road: 1995 Buick Roadmaster Wagon

What could be better for a daily driver and family cruiser than a big V8 powered American wagon with less than 100k miles on the odometer offered for a good price. The Buick Roadmaster Estate may have been a badge engineered version of the Chevrolet Caprice Estate but it added much needed flair to the B-body platform and is the cool old dude's choice for a late model domestic wagon...and this one comes with the later LT1 V8 for more power and torque.  Find this 1995 Buick Roadmaster Wagon offered for $3,000 in Long Island, NY via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!


 From the seller:
95 Buick Roadmaster Wagon . Good condition 3000 or best offer. Please text or call if interested .

  1. This would have been perfect back when I was considering these. With the tow package they're good to haul a lightweight racecar on an open trailer. I'd love to drag around a lotus/Miata/Formula Ford/vintage British roadster with one of these.

  2. Don't know if I've ever seen one in black with wood delete before. Or even *with* wood for that matter. Could be it's been painted. Still and all, at 98k miles, that's a good price if it checks out OK. KBZ provisionally approves, just exercise standard reasonable caution.

  3. Anyone else get the feeling that this is a cream puff? Just feels right

    1. I find myself looking thru the local List o' the Craig whenever a RM is posted here.

  4. my wife owned one of these: great if you have lots of kids and dogs and stuff... but i will never again buy an east coast car, since the rust monster always hides under new paint and undercoat (sellers are smart enough not to tell you that stuff)

  5. In all sincerity, I have zero idea why some peeps drool over these cars.

    Is it the "it is so ugly it is kinda' cute" attraction dynamic?

    1. Completely agree. Inexplicable

    2. It's the last body-on-frame RWD American V8 station wagon. Aesthetics are a matter of opinion but if you want the final iteration of that formula, this is it.

      DT head honcho Vince has one, a blue non-wood version with an LT1. Used to belong to Kaibeezy. I've driven it and understand the appeal. It's a great cruiser, cheap to operate, practical for a family with multitudes of offspring (like Vince's) and it's quirky compared to your typical boring crossover or minivan.

      If you want the ultimate body-on-frame RWD V8 American car, then the 2003+ Ford Crown Vic P71 Police Interceptor is the way to go. Acceleration and handling far superior to the Roadmaster. But no wagon of course.
