Buick in this era was too bulky and too soft a ride for my taste. Body flex was quite noticeable on the Buicks of friends in that period and handling tended to be nose heavy, especially on sharp corners. In comparison, the Chevrolet was much better.

I made my choice today based on which one I'd most like to be seen driving up to a car show in - and it's the '57.

57 is best looking by far.

Love all three!  But hands down my vote goes to the BATMOBILE '59.  I say Batmobile because I've always thought that the '59 Buick could have been a good choice for that iconic Futura had not been available.  I also love all of General Motors ladder line-up of cars for '59.

I'm voting for the 1959 also, but the 1957 was close. 1958 is not my taste.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

I went with the 58, one I never see or remember seeing much of.  Got a little Caddy and Chevy in there as you would expect.

The '57 is my favorite 50s Buick, after that the '59 then the '58. But to be honest, I'd take any of them.

'57 wins easily then '59 and a distant third is the '58.

Tough call. Three very different and beautiful Buicks. By the smallest of margins...'57, '58 and '59.
