Beautiful brute? 

IMO, the Virgil Exner-overseen design of the '56 DeSoto face is comparable to ANY 'best' design out there of ANY era (especially the modern one) - it is so utterly tailored & refined but still has

I think I posted a pic before, but this is Bro's 'bird:

Watched over the weekend movie Wander on Amazon Prime.  The movie is a bit weird but actors are great.  They had 1970 Olds Toronado, which I think looked pretty cool.

They neutered it by 1968. They squared off the look in 1969.

But went back to the bladed front end in 1970 like you posted.  @ykX

The 1st gen Toronado was a looker. Any year. But in my opinion, the 1st year was THE masterpiece and Oldsmobile/GM just kept on messin' it up year after year  after what they had created in 1966!

The Riviera '66 and '67 to me, was on equal footing as the '66-'67 Toro. Well, the Toronado edged it just a tad to be a more sensual design.  But both were awesome!  So much so, that I prefer these 2nd gen Rivieras over the 1st gens.

But yeah, Buick's refreshing styling direction from '68 onward DID surpass Oldsmobile's.  I agree with you Balthy.

My dad had one. But his was not "The Judge" trim.   Kinda like this one.

1970 Pontiac GTO # Matching

An even BIGGER but though...

since we  I  are am talking about GM A bodies...then there is the ONE GM A Body that I totally want over the others...and THAT would be a 1970...OLDS 442 W30

Ready to start gunning down high school kids and haunting Davids nightmares I am sure. Glad it will be rebuilt. 

May be an image of outdoors
