Buick Regal vs Toyota Camry
http://www.heywardallen.com/ The 2011 Buick Regal can be found at your
premier Atlanta Buick dealer, Heyward Allen Motor Comany in Athens GA.
"There is NO comparison between the two and how they drive. In the Buick,
the shifts are a lot more tighter, it feels a lot more comfortable, and it
handles the road a whole lot better than the Camry. 16'' wheels on the
Camry. 18'' wheels on the Regal. Sleek, nice, aerodynamic looking door
panel. Great dirver's compartment. Gages light up absolutely gorgeously.
USB connectivity. Heated and ventilated seats. Folding back seats. The
Regal is also $1,000 cheaper! Back seats on the Camry do not fold down. The
Camry just does not have that look, that appeal that the Buick has. In
addition, you get all OnStar benefit for a year with the Regal."

Buick Regal Video Review -- Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Sporty may not be a word you'd use to describe any Buick of recent memory.
In fact, unless you're familiar with the much loved Buick Regal of the 70's
and 80's the notion of a turbocharged
Buick might seem strange. And yet there was a time when Buick was a brand
for drivers who really liked to drive. After a several year hiatus the
Buick Regal has returned with a renewed sense of sportiness, refinement and
yes, an optional turbocharger.
1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.
Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
Buick Continues to Build Momentum - 2010 New York Auto Show
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT BUICK VISIT:
A few years ago it seemed the only momentum Buick had was downhill. In
fact, several auto industry pundits called for the elimination of the brand
as General Motors reorganized. But Buick survived the tumult within GM,
and it has emerged stronger than it has been in over a decade. A
hot-selling new LaCrosse and the imminent arrival of the Buick Regal are
two reasons why Buick marketing head Craig Bierley is feeling so confident
these days. We had a chance to speak with him about the resurgent brand at
the New York International Auto Show.
