Like many of you, I remember when 1989 Buicks were new cars, and like so many others, were boring examples of General Motors Malaise era design. Appliance cars for sure – though they do have their fans. This ad here on craigslist for a 1989 Buick for sale in Wilton, Connecticut looks like just another old used car, but it caught my eye.
This might be one of the best and simply written ads I have seen in a long time: “Car was owned by the convent! Nuns drove it.”
That’s all you need to know. I’m guessing this car is solid, clean, and very driveable. And it is probably just as boring to drive today as it was when it was new back in 1989. Still, if you like to put your fanny in the nuns’ seat, this is the car for you. And you don’t even have to join a convent to drive it. With only 64,000 miles on this car, a nice set of wire wheel covers, and an asking price of only $2,000, how can you go wrong? Cue nun jokes now please.
