San Ramon Street Sighting - 1976 Buick LeSabre Custom
One day last year I was driving and got passed by a big, tomato red vintage Buick on a main boulevard through my town. We were going to different destinations and I wasn't able to grab my camera since I was behind the wheel. Some time later on a different day, it passed me going the other direction. I figured it must be local. Sure enough, months later I discovered it quite by accident on a street I used to walk down every day when I was in high school. It turned out to be one of the nicest '76 LeSabres I've ever seen.
I can tell that the owner cares very much about his big red cruiser, and that's awesome. We need more people in the hobby who appreciate big old cars for what they are, not as a gaudy rolling public nuisance or a shambling beater.
