I Dreamed I Dream: 1993 Buick Skylark

I think we're just now far enough removed from the '90s to fully appreciate just how weird things got over at the General during the Clinton years. Case in point: this Skylark. The curiously bearded grill. The droopy not-quite fender skirts. You get the sense that somewhere back there was a really cool initial concept sketch, but along the way to the production line everything that made it cool got lost and what was left was just ... this.

I have to say, though, that this example, especially with its cop black steel wheels, looks kinda bitchin.

Somebody needs to go over to seller's house and confiscate every copy of HTML for Dummies they find there. I'm guessing there'll be more than one.
