    Another Takeaway From the NAIAS

    The folks at the Buick Display are still hoping that they build the Avenir. One of them said that it's still sitting in "the garage"....
    85 cars since 1975....
    Good night and good luck.

    Personally, I think an Avenir is the last thing Buick needs. More crossovers and something like the Avista, yes.
    "The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. "

    Buick needs to build something like that tiny Encore crossover that looks just like a Buick.

    The Avenir brand may see the light of day as a minivan.

    Wonder if this is the same guy that told me in 1994 the 1995 "monte carlo" would be "true to its roots", i.e. RWD. SMH.
