Reatta de Rouge: 1989 Buick Reatta

Most of the junk you can find at the Buick dealer today is rebadged GM fleet cars or something assembled in China, but there was a time when GM’s Buick division engineered and released their own piece of advanced technology — and I’m not talking about the 1960s. It was in ’88– a hand-built two seater with 4-corner independent suspension, a fuel injected Buick V6 and an advanced touchscreen computer interface known as the Reatta. It is probably the single biggest reason that nobody at Buick gets to design or develop cars anymore, but that is a story for another time. Find this 1989 Buick Reatta offered for $6,500 in St Petersburg, FL via craigslist. Tip from David in Tampa.
