I'm a fan of the three engine vents, er, portholes, even if they are fake. Reminds me of my Dad's '53. The current logo could be better. Just cutting it back to Buick in block letters could be an improvement.

I'm a porthole fan as well. Goes back to my grandfather's 49. Loved that car. I think it was a Sedanette - fastback with a Rocket straight 8. The hood opened from the sides.

"..... fastback with a Rocket straight 8."
Point of order. Rocket was the Olds V-8, Fireball was Buicks inline 8. I know, I bought a '49 Super Sedan for my son this year!!!!

"Buick is bringing back the Grand National, the GNX and the T-Type, three legendary performance nameplates from the brand's high times of the 1980s. All three cars will be sedans and they'll use GM's new rear-wheel-drive Alpha platform first introduced in the Cadillac ATS sedan.
That's the plan anyway, according to a reliable source who spoke to Edmunds.

Wow, that car looks like a tiger ready to pounce! However, the car has two too many doors!

"Critics like to knock the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid for everything from stingy battery-powered range to its cramped cabin and high sticker price. But it has the most loving owners of any regular production car in the U.S., according to a new survey.
The rating stems from what Consumer Reports officially calls its owner-satisfaction survey, which asks its subscribers a single question: Would you get the same vehicle if you had to do it all over again? Researchers said 92% of Volt owners said they would."

Came across the Chevy Tahoe LTZ and started thinking about trim lines.
Do you think they really named that one after Maximum Bob?
