Chevy for me. My first new car was a 66 Buick Skylark GS 400 which essentially had the same body.

Hi JK,

I bought my 1966 Malibu SS convertible in 1968 from a friend who needed cash to get married. It was pale yellow with white leather interior and red-wall bias ply tires. It had a Muntz 4 track player and I added Lucus spotlights and a Maserati horn set to it. It was automatic but I would have preferred manual transmission although it had a great consol between the fron bucket seats. The V8 was the small block 283. It was peppy enough. I loved the power top.

Car was a great cruiser and I took it to Florida and back from Toronto in 1970 and to Sportscar racing events. My wife and two small kids loved it.

I unfortunately wrote off the car in a head-on collision in January 1972 in a Winter storm white-out. I was by myself heading for a meeting in rural Ontario. The engine joined me in the front seat but my worst injury was a fractured knee which kept me in a left leg cast for six weeks. 

I loved this car and had just about decided to keep it and store it for Winters as I had two other vehicles at the time, a 1970 Peugeot 504 and a 1966 Sunbeam.

David;  Considering you only had a lap belt I would say you were extremely fortunate to have not been critically injured...or worse!
