chevrolet has the widest range of appeal so i voted for em
the new gto is too much like an american bmw or something, gm wrecked the affordable part of it
and buick has the "old person stigma" with it, but I know better.
but still, the general public thinks buick=grandma

Well, since I’m non-American, I’m free of associations “Buick=????”. I just see fine-looking fast car with BIG engine.
But if I were Chevelle owner, I would vote for it anytime!
As for new GTO…ugh

Buick GSX hands down. To me not a matter of "performance" allthough that is a big part of it, but also styling.

Since Olds W-30 isn't on the list and I had a 70 Chevelle SS that ran like it was tied to a tree, I would vote the Buford. I remember reading a magazine article where a mostly stock 70 Buick GS spanked a 70 dual quad Hemi Road runner bad, 3 for 3.

My vote went Buick, it's the only one not killed in 72 by the smog & insurance. The 455 was still fast with the stage 1 package.

Could you get a Chevelle with a hood tack? That was cool in the GS & GTO (OLD 442 have one????) Seems like a great way to keep your eye on the track instead of the gauge cluster.

Having driven an LS-6 Chevelle,a 455 Stage 1 Buick and a '70 Judge belonging to friends back in the day and considering all 3 were built on the same platform it pretty much boils down to personal taste as all 3 were pretty close in performance and "feel". My buddy's Buick was definitely the most fun though, it wasn't a GSX but a plain silver GS with a 4 speed, 4.56 posi, body color steelies, dog dish hub caps and a bench seat, NOTHING on that car gave any indication that it was anything but a Grandma's car except the Stage 1 emblems and nobody around here knew what those meant back then, heh heh heh .
