    I am going to love this car. I already enjoy driving the Legran.

    I enjoy the legran, because i had a couple of buick centurys. They bring back memories of cars i once owned, the Wendover on the other hand will bring back memories of the buick lesabre and the park avenue, that i used to own. The wendover is a beautiful design.

    Man, I haven't been on for a while.

    Anyway, the Wendover's looking good. I'm looking forward to the eventual release.

    What year is the Wendover supposed to be? I assume it's somewhere between 1985-1991.

    yeah, probably a similar production run to the legran, though i could see it setending into the early 90's as well
    speaking of wendover production years, I wonder if it will come with some sort of light facelift from the get-go? maybe a set of compound headlights, and different taillights?

    If the facelift you're describing would be similar to the Moonhawk's facelift, I think that's likely. Plus a lot of cars of the LeGran and Wendover's type didn't really change much for the 90s from what I can tell.

    Semi related to the Wendover, but in 1986 Buick built a Grand National variant of the Buick Le Sabre for NASCAR homologation, only available in one colour and interior combination. Not much performance changes though (maybe suspension and an exhaust). Only 112 to 117 were built. Rarer than the Regal Grand National GNX.

    An example of a possible Wendover variant.


    What the NASCAR looked like.

    Wasn't excited for either the Bluebuck or the FCV but they are now two of my favorite cars in the game. I'm sure they'll pull something off with the Wendover.
    I am hoping they at least have a Grand National variant of some type.

    Imagine the Soliad Wendover when to the unexpected route. The normal model uses the transverse FWD layout while the high performance version uses longitudinal RWD like the MG Rover 75.

    Onto the new photos - I want more JRI photos - they look great - but WCUSA revamp and/or optimisation probably will be before that.

    The Ford gt has a 3.5L ecoboost v6 from an explorer.

    Some Lotus models use 3.5L Toyota V6s which can be found In basically every Lexus and Toyota model
