    Definately would take the '60, but there's something about a yacht with a drop top and 455, I don't know what it is, but there's something.....
    Escaped on a technicality.

      '70.

      The '60 is just too toned down from '59. And it's not a coupe or an uber-bitchin four-door hardtop (with the crazy wrap-around rear glass. See http://www.buickstreet.com/59buickstreet.html) Besides, convertibles are generally easier to resell than four-door sedans.

      And there's that monster 455 under the hood of the '70 (just begging for some "Stage 1" or even "Stage 2" love)

      Now the choice was between a '59 and a '70 . . . .

          the 60, those have always been some of my favorite cars
          I was angry when they drove one off a parking garage in Burn Notice, my dad got a little sad
          Rumors of my demise by rollover have been greatly exaggerated.

            The 60 is nice but I have to take the 70. My dad bought one new that was blue on white with a white top. To this day he says White is the only color for a convertable top.

              The 70, just modern enough to drive, still have fun.

                  Friend of mine at work has a dark brown metallic 70 2 dr hard top. It's all factory . He drove it on his sr promnight. His dad left it to him when he died. I told him that one of these days I'd catch him in a weak moment and by it. I can just picture it with wide 17's painted black and so 40 series f-masters and duals. That 455 would sound so much better!

                      '70. Not too much for the wanna-be Batmobile.

                        I love the 60. It may be my utalitarianess (is that a word?) that makes me like the 4 door hard top.

                          I am liking them both, but have to lean towards the 70. My buddy in high schoold has a 72 2 door hard top in the same color as that vert with a white vinyl top and 455 under da hood.

                            I like 'em both, too, but the '70 reminds me of my high school girlfriend. Her dad was a dyed-in-the-wool Buick man and while I didn't really appreciate his taste back in '75 or so, my 49-year-old self can see the appeal now.

                            And those Earl and Joyce stickers seal the deal!

                              Dad bought a 71 225 when we came back from Okinawa in 76. It was brown metallic with tan velour interior four door hardtop. We bought them, that and a 74 Maverick sedan, in Kansas City while visiting Dad's brothers and parents before driving them to Omaha where we were living. I don't remember much about it as Dad didn't keep it very long. It bought our 73 Cadillac by 77 or 78.
