28 feet from bumper to bumper
The last of the sweet old time gas guzzlers
Hard to drive harder to park
But when you do somebody remarks
That's a might big car
Headlights thick as mason jars
Everybody says that it looks like Mars
Shiner than a country star
And nothing ever looked as good in your front yard
That's a mighty big car

    Well Kevin I'm not sure that it was because we didn't want to ride around with jerks, but that we discovered how much fun it was to drive a hot car. The Buick I bought wasn't my daddy's Buick, it was an 1986 Buick Grand National and it was a HOT car!

    We have a Road Master too; we call it our "Road Monster". Ours is an 96, the last year they made them. Ours is blue and in the shop right now getting a paint job to pretty it up. Some people think it's an old man car but once you get behind the wheel and feel the power you know that's not true.
