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.

Not that keen on either of these but if I had to choose, I would say a tie.

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.

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.
