Three spoke wheels were a rare factory option on the mid-90s Buick Park Ave if you opted for the Ultra package.
I...highly doubt those are factory. I know Ultras could be had with larger "turbocast" style wheels like this:Three spoke wheels were a rare factory option on the mid-90s Buick Park Ave if you opted for the Ultra package.

Unless it's a really obscure, specific build sheet, an LS6 Chevelle isn't quite that rare.Apparently only 20 were made in this configuration:
1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS6
Maybe it's like a Mecum auction, where the car crossing the block is one where someone ordered a '71 Barracuda with a 440/4-speed in baby:censored: green with a blue interior and wire wheels and the commentators have to note that it's "one of four in this rare option combination"
Yeah I don't see anywhere where that style of wheel was offered on the Park Avenue much less any Buick of the time. Those are definitely aftermarket wheels with Buick emblems attached. Also, it may be an illusion, but those look to be wheel covers. It looks like there is a wheel weight poking out from behind in the 5:00 position.I...highly doubt those are factory.

But I seriously doubt Buick would've offered tart American-Racing style wheels from the factory.
I don't hate it.I was looking for some comparison pics after doing some... let's say light work on Ayeka III. And I found this:

God I hope this was rare.
They left the factory with radios and goons hired by Shelby American broke into the cars and stole them to put in the Series 1.
- The base trim of the 2000-2005 Buick Lesabre, a premium full-sized car, could be had with no radio.
It was called "Iced Aqua" and, while rare, you can still source them if you find the right parts dealer. The last mention of it I know of is 2008.The European spec Volvo S40 and V50 in the mid-2000s could be optioned with a transparent plastic dashboard trim. Due to its ugly, out-of-place look, this option was very rare.
