About the Buick Reatta automobile
For anyone not familiar with the Buick Reatta, it is a luxurious sports coupe that was produced at the Reatta Craft Centre in Lansing, Michigan and sold by the Buick Division of General Motors Corporation from 1988 to 1991.
The Buick Reatta was marketed as a "Hand Crafted Car." Instead of the usual moving assembly line, GM organized its work force into small teams. Workers performed dozens of tasks on the cars at various locations known as "Craft Stations," within the plant. The cars were carried between locations by computer-guided carts.
For power the Reatta has a 3.8 Litre V6-165 horsepower sequential fuel injection engine and a four speed automatic transmission with front wheel drive. Almost all power and luxury options Buick had to offer were standard equipment on the Reatta.
