treatises have been written about this kind of thing, fake luxury and whatnot, claiming that it all came about because car company executives preferred driving Lincolns or Cadillacs or Imperials and hated being forced to drive lesser cars from their own brands. So they ended up with these vinyl-topped, luxury-laden chrome boats frequently named after symbols of wealth or prestige, often saddled with the word "Brougham" in there somewhere. This '73 Buick has been spared the Brougham moniker, but the former Electra 225 Custom was now the Limited.
OldParkedCars haven't previously posted this car on their own site. The '73 Buicks were never my favorites but this one's pretty cool.
