Absolutely the Buick!

OLDSMOBILE! I like the Buick too, but when parked next to the Olds, it's the only set of keys I want baby. The 4-4-2's drove me (I wish) wild back in that era. I LOVE 'EM!
I like the trim, grille, hood scoops and tail lights of the 442 a bit more....Olds by a nose.
Like both but the Buick for me.
Not that keen on either of these but if I had to choose, I would say a tie.
Olds for me.
I drove a 1970 GS455 for twenty years, so Buick for me. So refined and muscular, and actually comfortable on long road trips.
4-4-2. To me it looks a little bit sharper, and I remember reading that it had the best handling of the muscle cars. I'd love either one though.
Retired in Dunedin, Florida.
I see these, to me, comparatively recent cars, and I try to remember mine of that era - 1971. That's the year I started feeling cramped (family of 4) in my '67 Mercury Capri 2 door hardtop and started thinking sedan. I looked around a while, skipped the 71's, and would up in a '72 Delmont 88 Oldsmobile, a 4 door hardtop. Nice and roomy, Poor gas mileage, but at that time, who cared? My wife and I drove that Olds for quite a few years, as I changed jobs and started commuting. We became a 2-car family! Well, almost. The "new" second car was a five or six years old VW bug.
Calling it a tie.
I prefer the look of the Buick 👍 but that Olds is a beast.
Calling it a tie.
me too, both really great looking cars. Thanks for continuing to post this series John, I never miss it and vote whenever you post.
