Video: Jay Leno Reviews the 1957 Buick Roadmaster

It looks like Jay Leno got bored of all the supercars on the market, as in the past few episodes of his show he turned his attention toward classic cars. After the 1951 Kaiser Drag’n, Leno now chose to review a 1957 Buick Roadmaster.

The Roadmaster was produced by Buick between 1936 and 1958 and again from 1991 to 1996. The 1957 model featured a lower body and an even more panoramic windshield equipped with reverse slanted pillars. The Roadmaster was built on a Buick’s longest non-limousine wheelbase and shared its basic structure with later-model Oldsmobiles.

Under the hood there was a new 364-cubic-inch engine that cranked out 300 horsepower.

Watch the video to see why Jay Leno is so impressed by these dinosaurs of the automotive world, as he calls them. Let us know in the comment section below if you think he is right!

All those mechanical systems are amazing and I like them and that part about safety system was hilarious.

I appreciate him cause he kepps the car just the way it is. This kind of cars are not just cars, are history.

The vehicles at that time were really huge. No matter which part or angle you were watching it, the car looked big.

The car looks amazing and in a great condition. A "dinosaur" indeed.smiley
