I have a slight preference for the lines of the Oldsmobile Starfire.

I owned and restored a 61 Olds Starfire so I am prejudiced. My 1/1 was a Champaign color inside, outside and including the top.

I have a slight preference to NEITHER!  But since I don't want to vote TIE, I'll go with the OLDSMOBILE.  With the exception of General Motors '61 Chevrolet, I thought their other cars were all to "pointy" on the front and rear fenders.  Then in '62 WOW!  The GM line-up hit a home run across the board.

While all of GMs '61s were amazing, The Buick is the choice for me today, especially in black. Nice!

For 1961, I prefer the Buick over the Olds.  But complete reversal for the 1962 models.

I couldn't vote fast enough for the Starfire. The name alone! But it just looks great.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

The 61 Buick and Olds were Meh, as opposed to GM's other 3 divisions' offerings.  I thought those had looks that were clean and classy.  And yes, less pointy.

But for the sake of No Ties, I'll pick the Olds.

I like both cars very much but give the nod to the Olds styling and trim.
