Probably, because they were bigger and heavier than the same cars before and after them................They do ride the nicest though.

I remember when they first appeared at the dealers, dad loaded the family up in the 67 Pontiac Ventura 2 dr that he and my uncle put a built 455 in and rumbled down to have a look. I thought the bumpers were hideous and I guess that first impression always stuck with me, that and at the time how could they eliminate duel exhaust and have catalytic converters.
Now I am many years older and my opinions have changed.....somewhat.

Personally I like something a little different. I just sold a beautiful 65 442 and it brought what it was worth. If you find the right person that is looking for something off the beaten path I honestly believe you will get the cars worth. I have always liked different stuff although camaros, novas, chevelles...etc always having me drooing at the shows.

Heres a shot of my "off the beaten path" 67 f85. It has that old crappy diesel 350 from the early 80's that has been bored and stroked to 440 inches. That old diesel had quite the bottom end and was good candidate for cubic inches and compression.

I know the Olds will sell with no problem, if I have to let it go. I have had a couple of serious offers in the past, and wouldn't part with it. I know it will not bring as much as a comparable Nova, and don't expect it to. If I do have to sell it I will probably put it on ebay. I don't know if I would want to see it driven, or possibly abused or thrashed on around town here.

I hear that! I watched a car had I had put a lot of work into and really enjoyed driven into the ground and destroyed. I told myself that they paid their money and could do whatever they wanted but it still made me sick.

Colorado, those are my favorite "Late" GM cars, 64-67 A bodies. I have a 65 Buick Gran Sport Conv (in photo) that I have had for over 20 years. The only picture I have on my computer is this one as it sits right now. I really have enjoyed the car.

I grew up with my Dad selling Buicks. I drove a LOT of them when I was a kid. Remember the Indy Pace Car Replica? 1977 Century, the year BEFORE they put turbos on a redesigned car. We had one off the lot with all the decals and T tops and all. My dad made a deal to trade it with another dealer in beautiful Santa Cruz (board walk and all beach town) fifty miles away or so from us. We drove that car to the dealer over the mountains to Santa Cruz and brought back a regular Century. I was 16 it was one of the best times with my pop, great memories in those old Buicks.

Brian sounds like a great time back then. I happen to know hwy 17 well and have an uncle in Scotts Valley. Looks like your 65 is really nice and is going to make a beauty when completed.

I had a butterscotch 73 Cutlass Supreme, Nice riding car.

I seem to remember the bumpers were kinda dainty looking----Narrow

They did stick out quite a bit though.

Personally, I think the 73 Cutlass was the best looking of all the Colonade cars.

By 74, all of 'em looked like big bumper ads.

Brian--------Those turbos were available on that same Century body that that pace car was based on------very rare though, I thought I read less than 200 cars.

would one of you mind helping me with the quote function. I have looked around for instructions and goofed around for about 15 minutes but must be a stupido.

Oops...As I posted that I think I realized what you were asking ColorodoKid, so, I'll answer my own question to you. The quote function is a box located at the bottom of a posting. It enables another person to click on it and the post that you clicked on it in will show up in a reply box. From there the posting can be deleted down or left as is to give a direct reply to what that person has posted. Is that what you were looking for?
