Buick Builds an Image Enhancer
I can't remember the last time I lusted after a new Buick, if ever. I'm too young to have been aware of the '63 Riviera when it came on the scene, having been born the same year, but nevertheless I've since slotted it in as one of my favorite domestic cars of all time. The 1988 to 1991 Reatta caught my attention when it debuted, but unlike the first Riv, it wasn't one hundred percent right. Not like the new Velite Concept.
The new Velite is one hundred percent right? Well, being that I couldn't get close enough to it after its introduction to make such an all-inclusive statement, I won't commit that far. Still, for the first time in a long time Buick has captured the spirit of motoring in a very intoxicating way.
