    I Hit The Motherlode!

    Stopped off at a Tim Hortons. There was 4 or 5 Camo'd cars with current Buicks as part of the drive. All told, there were 8 or 9 vehicles with 2-4 guys per car. WHOA! I tried to offer these up to one of the magazines. None of them were interested in a call back. These are all my property and they'll need to call me before using them.... I'm thinking that we're seeing the Buick Wagon and Hatchback. These cars are rather large, though. I took quite a few shots. Here is just one of them.

    The wagon will have a hatchback... The vehicle on the left looks like a little CUV...

    So is it the wagon, or the lifted and plastic cladded wagon?

    I was right next to those vehicles, talking to the drivers/engineers. That wagon was not small. That is what surprised me. Easily north of 192" in length. Look at how it fills the parking space. The guy standing to the right was about 6' tall. Use that as a reference.

    Cool. Nice find. Would love to see more. Might as well share with your fellow GMI members and enjoy the glory before the mags go hang out near Milford and snap their own. I spotted the Eqqus camo'd in St Paul, Mn in 2007ish. Shared them here and many though it was the 2010 Lacrosse. That was fun. Then again, your odds of catching something like this in Michigan are like 10,000 times more likely in Michigan than in Minnesota, so maybe not as exciting as I felt lol.

    That's about 6" longer and shorter than the Outback. Should do well as long as pricing isn't crazy!

    The Roadmaster wagon was 217.7" long. This is far from being a Roadmaster replacement in size or seating capacity.
