It drove well, and looked excellent. Now I just have to negotiate price with the seller and convince my father, who will be enjoying the car with me, that this is a keeper. He is not sure of the color.

I was using all three lanes going around the curves

Barry, Is this because you needed to?  ;D ;D ;D……My dad purchased a brand new '86 Fleetwood Brougham and it needed 3 lanes to negotiate a turn! You would kinda aim it and anticipate an oncoming curve.  Riding in the back seat would make my stomach queasy. It was great for going out on dates  though >:D

That's rather funny.  I drive an '06 Buick lucerne as the daily drudge.  It is the worst cornering car I've ever owned.  I've had 6 rwd cadillacs from 1957 to 1991, a '93 fwd sedan and the 129" wheelbase '57 and the worst handling of all is the new buick.  I can whip the '57 coupe deville into a parking spot in one turn.  The buick is like stuffing a sausage.

I didn't really need to. I put my foot down, and soon I had the whole road to myself, and made myself, "King of the road." And since the quickest way around a curve is a straight line, that's why I used the whole road. (As I recall, there was a passing lane up much of the mountain, hence the three lanes.)
