DT 5.0: Best 5-Door: 1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon

With all the Volvos posted around these pages you’d expect that the best 5-door would have been some kinda Swedish machine (maybe even a Saab??) but you’d be completely wrong.  I don’t write this because I don’t appreciate the sublime feeling of a vintage Volvo…but I can tell you that if you drive a wagon and it isn’t a Roadmaster, you’re doing it wrong.  Just examine the name. Road.  Master.  It owns the road.  No other car devours asphalt like a Roadmaster…and I can say this because I daily drive one.  Find this 1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon offered for $8,700 here on eBay starting bid located in Jupiter, FL.  This post is part of DT’s 5th Birthday Celebration.

The Buick Roadmaster Wagon (and Chevrolet Caprice wagon) was the end of
the line for the American full sized body-on-frame station wagon.  It
was a last hurrah for the classic American fuel drinker that wasn’t an
SUV, and was built from 1991 through 1996.  However, the one to get is the 1994-1996 model because they are powered by the torquey 5.7 liter LT1 V8 and put some serious ooomph into the loud pedal.
