Pontiac Bonneville Brougham (or Parisienne? Tail lights don't have egg-crate trim)
Note the heads-up display. Cool!

Okay, it's a Pontiac, but not a full-size. The tail lights do not wrap to the sides here.

It's a Buick LeSabre, late 1970's

I like it! The non-wraparound tail lights confused me. My first thought was Chrysler Cordova until I saw the GM luxury sedan roofline.

When did Buick first use Park Avenue? Was it in reference to the top trim level on a particular body style (in this case, a four-door sedan)? I see no model distinction on these production lists:

The name "Park Avenue" was used by Cadillac twice (1954 Motorama concept car and 1962+ short deck variant of the Sedan de Ville), before Buick adopted it for the highest trim level of the Electra in 1975. In 1991, the Park Avenue replaced the Electra and became it´s own model.

I thought the Electra name was placed on the RWD platform in the 1980s. My 1986 Park Avenue was FWD. Thanks for answering my first question. :)

Wasn't '85 the first model year for the FWD Electra?

That's exact.
I think the Cadillac Park Avenue was available in 1962-63 only.
The "Park Avenue" was a trim option on the 1975-76 Electra Limited 4 door hardtop and on the 1977 Electra Limited 4 door sedan. In 1978, it had it's own distinct model number and it was available on both the 2 door coupe and 4 door sedan. In 1980, the base "Electra 225" model was dropped and the Electra Limited became the entry level model and the Park Avenue was the fancier model.

Yes it was. The RWD Electra was still available in 1985-89 but only on the Estate Wagon. In 1990, the Estate Wagon had only one trim level and it was just called Estate Wagon. The following year, it was replaced by the Roadmaster.

In 1991, the name Electra was dropped from the Buick lineup and only the Park Avenue and Park Avenue Ultra remained.

Nah. This is a '77 "Deuce and a Quarter", AKA Buick Electra 225. We had one (brown with a beige top). The '78 Electras featured the wrap around tail lights as did the LeSabre. The '77 Electras had the tail lights that did not wrap around, nut, on the rear side sinder was a "decoration" strip light that did not work (just places there for show). We had some great times in "Lizzie" (my Grandmother named the car).
