'57, it looks like a Buick. The '58...not so much, to my eye.

I much prefer the 1957, mainly because of that overbearing front grill on the 1958.

The styling of the 57 is beautiful.  Not a fan of the 58 Buick at all.

IMHO ‘58 was a bad year for both Olds & Buick designs…

'57 the lessor of two evils. '57 is barely alright, '58 is ugly [in my opinion]. '57 Caddy, Olds,, Pontiac, Chevy all are very nice [design/styling], Buick not so nice ??

I really like both!  But my vote goes to the '58.  With the exception of Cadillac, I think General Motors 1958 styling was over the top spectacular!  And I'll add that the above statement rings true for me for their 1959 styling too!

I'll vote 1957. As others have said, 1958 Buick and Olds are a nadir of GM styling to me.

The ‘57 is my favorite 50s Buick-so I’ll take it over any other.

I'd really rather have the big, bold and buoyant Air Born B-58 Buick with Vista Vision quad headlights, Fashion Aire Dynastar grill, Flight Pitch Twin Turbine Dynaflow transmission, Twin Tower taillights, Dual Jet back-up lamps, Sweepspear side trim, optional Air Poise Ride and the powerful B12000 V8 engine. It looks and feels like flight on wheels! When better automobiles are built, Buick will build them. Wouldn't you, too, really rather have a 1958 Buick?

Love them both, but the '57 looks bare compared to the gorgeous '58.
