During the inaugural season of The History Channel’s Top Gear (not the BBC’s Top Gear), the show hosts were given the challenge to buy a discontinued General Motors vehicle and find a convincing point as to why they shouldn’t have been canned in the first place. Rutledge Wood picked a Buick Roadmaster Wagon and after several spilled cups of cola, broken eggs and gallons of water later, he would ultimately win the challenge.
It’s been a while since the filming of the episode, and Wood has decided to pickup one of these wood-grain beauties for himself by recently purchasing a 1996 Roadmaster Estate with an LT1 V8, automatic climate control, and other tweaks. Wood said in one of his tweets he will put on a new set of springs to get rid of the slammed look that the wagon carries now.
We approve of this purchase, Mr.Wood.
