    I forgot that the Pontiac kept the old 5.0 Chevy instead of the H.O. like the Monte Carlo. I always thought it was pretty interesting looking, especially the front end. I also forgot the Olds 307 put out a decent amount of power for the era. Of course the Buick whupped them all and they were all about the same price. Too bad the prediction of the cars lasting until '89 didn't come true. One of the truly big mistakes of GM of the era. Going FWD was horrible and more than likely was the biggest reason Olds died.
    1968 Buick Skylark (Buick 350/4)
    1972 Chevrolet Corvette (350 LT-1)
    2001 Chevrolet Tahoe LS (5.3 liter)
    1983 Chevrolet C/10 Silverado (350 Goodwrench)

    Former: 1989 GMC Suburban R1500 (5.7 liter)
    1969 Buick Skylark Custom (Buick 350/2)
    1971 Buick Riviera (Buick 455)
    1971 Buick Electra 225 (Buick 455)

    Without Buick, GM never would have existed.
