Thinking back on childhood, we can all remember our best friends, the group of kids we hung out with, and the cool places that we snuck off to. Fast forward a few years, and you might see a slightly different set of friends, doing different things in different places. It’s a pattern that repeats itself during the course of a lifetime, where some people stay in our lives and others don’t. Situations change, locations change, and, fact is, people change.
Cars change, too.
Case in point: the 2010 Buick LaCrosse. Long considered a favorite of anyone carrying an AARP card, Buick models have often been overlooked by younger drivers seeking a sportier ride, or at least something Grandpa didn’t park in his garage. For decades there was some validity to that perspective, but the redesigned LaCrosse is not the Floatmaster of the ‘70s or the plastic factory of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Buick has changed, especially in the past couple of years, with the result being models like the 2010 LaCrosse, a stylish people-hauler that’s fun to drive, is available with a bevy of desirable options, and is reasonably priced.
Of course, Grandpa might still opt for his new Buick. If that’s the case, consider yourself blessed with a grandfather who has good taste in cars.
