Habitat for Humanity Car Donation Review

Owning my 1990 Buick Reatta convertible was a literal dream come true. Back in 1988, I saw a new Reatta at the DC Auto Show

Owning my 1990 Buick Reatta convertible was a literal dream come true. Back in 1988, I saw a new Reatta at the DC Auto Show – it left quite an impression, but it was the only one I ever saw new. The memory stayed with me, though, and I found out later that the hardtop halo car coupe was only made for model years 1988 – 1991. Fast forward to many years later, and I was looking for a fun convertible: while looking online, I discovered the Reatta also came as an (even less common) convertible in 1990 and 1991. I had found the right car, and then I found the right one for me – it even had two touches I had thought about, a (aftermarket) tan top and the wheels from the 1991 model year! I flew my mom and myself to Detroit to complete the sale, and we had a wonderful road trip back home, visiting new cities and towns, and enjoying the comfort of a grand tourer that’s comfortable even for tall drivers. Its compact external dimensions (a shortened version of GM’s E platform) meant I could drive it pretty much anywhere, and I sure have. Now, it’s time for someone else to enjoy it, and I hope they have as much fun with it as I did!

Thank You, Graham!
