Could you see me in a Buick?

I have to admit, I never thought I was a Buick person..but I could be changing my tune!

I paid a visit to Andy Hammond at Zimbrick Eastside, and when he told me he was going to show me a Buick Regal, I thought to myself  "isn't that the kind of car grandpas drive?" Then I saw the car and thought..that would have to be one really cool grandpa. This car had style! Sitting behind the wheel, I thought I could get used to this! Andy showed me all the cool features..and even let me peek under the hood. I immediately recognized the Variable Valve Timing intercooled turbocharged engine with direct cylinder fuel injection. Actually I had no idea what I was seeing, but it seemed impressive. This car is really built for safety..and performance. When I hit the road..I loved the smooth ride, and was surprised that there's even a "Sport" mode if you're a more active driver.  The Regal also has  just been named the Best Upscale Sedan for the Money by US News and World Report. Andy also showed me a GMC Terrain--which is bigger than any vehicle I've ever owned. It's an SUV that gets pretty great gas mileage (up to 32 mpg on the highway), and has tons of storage space for all the treasures I find when I'm out going to rummage sales. I took a little drive and then asked Andy..I want to go a little faster..can we go back out on the highway? This vehicle was really fun to drive.  And as some one who has a little trouble backing up vehicles, I liked the rear backup camera (it's attached right by the license plate). If you're looking for a more upscale sedan or a zippy SUV..go see Andy at Zimbrick Eastside Buick.
