    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    Did you ever see the pair of them in Lisle on 53 just north of Maple? They were out in the driveway, and I used to pass by them on my way to school in the late 70's.

    It isn't exactly pretty-but it sure is striking.Only Italians could get away with something like that-any other designers-say japanese-it would be weird and Godzilla movie scifi ugly.
    As it is-can't take your eyes off it-STRANGE STRIKING but not ugly not quite weird-close

    yeah cool car VERY VERY BIG BLOCK
    And according to a recent vintage muscle car test-the bucks were the fastest-forget which buick but certainly one with that monster 455 motor
    Best braking too-decent handling for their day-but much pricier than the Mopars which always gave most bang for buck-383's etc-even 340's- 440 were pricier but still cheaper than the Buicks
    Buicks were much nicer cars-better brakes handling too-but grand dad cars
    Pontiac had a HUGE 455 also-fast motor also-
    But Buicks were Q-ships- "kids" never bought them, but they were quicker than those 396 and 427 even most 454 Chevelle according to that test-even quicker than Hemi challenger(but it had clutch problems so maybe not)


    PS That Buick-depending on rear end etc-probably the fastest "not a Porche race car" accelerating car posted here-certainly none of those tiny European engined sports cars could do anything like 5 seconds and not much change to 60mph-
    Yeah fastest accelerating "not a zillion dollars new" car on this thread.Decent brakes-if disc- too(might be drum ft and rear??) some were cecent handling-if they got Buicks handling package(but that was a bit later-late 1960's) I think
    Great car-real USA muscle-but nice car to drive.
    Grand Sport-a "son" of that Skylark-might have been the name Buick put on their real sleepers

    I think the Buicks back then were just as cool as the big 3. I pretty much like their whole lineup of the day. Would kill for a GSX or boat-tail riviera. Besides the super rare models, seems like Buicks of that vintage can be picked up a lot cheaper than the more popular muscle cars too.

    The Riviera-was just beautiful-prettiest USA car of its day
    Granted looks a bit over the top now-but in the BIG FIN day it was gorgeous

    Yeah if you want THE fast muscle car-it ain't the 396 Chevelle we all wanted-OR my 1971 383 'Cuda
    The Buick-with the High performance version of that 455 (with a very modest-maybe 370 hp-HP claim) would and DID beat all the "big name" muscle cars in that recent-maybe 5 years ago-muscle car test. All the Fords 427 428 429 Chevys- 454 etc- Mopars 440 and even the Hemi(bad clutch)-beat the pontiacs-GTO etc-and the Trans Ams OLDS 442 all of them
    Some weren't "running right"-and some of those GMs and Fords- HEMI-were ringers with very limited availability "race motors"-needed not much-headers intake timing-to be MUCH MUCH faster-and they weren't "RUNNING RIGHT" but Buick beat them all-braked well too-stopped straight etc

    I think the cat is somewhat out of the bag-but they are still better deals than Chevelle Mustangs GTO etc

    Oh-the station wagon lover- ME TOO- love them-guess those SUVs are supposed to replace them, but they are too tall-too much frontal area to get decent mpg

    This is as close to yuppie as I got.....in diesel.
    The 504 diesel was quite a nice car... a friend of mine said he'd take one of these over a Benz sedan as the car actually cornered really well and was pretty much bulletproof.

    Mine was garaged pristine appearing when I bought it for bargain price. But it turned out to have a cracked head. A mechanic I talked to said their 4 cylinder diesels were problematic that way. So I didn't sink anymore money into it. I sadly sold it to someone who would when I needed money. I thought it was a pretty car myself and wished I had a gasoline version in that good of shape. That was the only foreign car that I've ever owned actually.

    Now that is nice-normally I'm not a fan of lowered cars with bigger wheels shorter sidewalls-but that WORKS!
