Buick Lucerne CXS Review

Lucerne10.jpgElectra Waggoner Biggs was born a Texas cattle and oil man's daughter, but left the Lone Star State for Bryn Mawr, Columbia and the Sorbonne.  Upon her return she became a revered sculptress, best known for her work "Into the Sunset," memorializing cowboy actor Will Rogers.  In 1959, the President of Buick (and Electra's husband's brother-in-law) named a flagship sedan after the middle aged Texan.  Today's Buick Lucerne is named after a quaint Swiss tourist trap, with only a failed peasant's revolt to its name.  And there you have it: Buick has tossed away decades of brash Americana for subdued Euro-style.  That's beyond stupid.
