    For a Buick, I like the 69 GS400-4spd. Rivieras don't do it for me.

    My dad had a 65' Gran Sport, new back in the day, 425, 11:1, with factory Dual Quads.
    I remember riding in it as a kid.
    My uncles told me the car was an absolute beast, it would pass anything on the road, except a gas station. [laugh]

    Tough choice, but I would have to go with the Firebird and a paint job. That stock, original color just doesn't do it justice. But the same is true for the Riv.

    Reading through this thread I feel super gay with my ‘83 5.0 GT.

    So my opinion is worthless when it comes to REAL musclecars but I’d keep that bird.

    Buick. I might be a little biassed though. Those nailhead motors are torque monsters. Haven't had it out yet this year. Working to many hours and
    too much rain. Soon I hope.

    I'd love an old Firebird 'vert with modern drive train and amenities. Nice resto mod 60's cars make me weak in the knees.

    If the Bird has the 400 c.i. motor, it's a keeper. Pretty quick car.

    Those cars are as different as night and day.

    The Buick is built much better, thicker steel and closer tolerances. It was (and is) a luxury car through and through.

    The Firebird is a lightweight sports car, and a little "flexy" as a convertible.

    The picture I attached is what you really want - luxury and performance.
