    It fails me as to why GM continues to bombard its Chevrolet buyers with that obnoxious, gaudy, oversized, gold bowtie. It’s the low-rent equivalent of the Mercedes pie pan. Yes, it’s a goddamn Chevrolet in case we missed it. Why not have the bowtie BE the entire grill? Reminds me of those clueless hacks with the bowtie-shaped exhaust tips. At least they could use a more subdued silver and tone it and the size down a couple of notches. Preach it.

    A Buick without portholes? Even Maserati has portholes.

    Can't see why there's so much fuss about a tarted up Opel/Vauxhall Insignia. What's so great about that?

    For what it's worth, I'm 33, and if I had that kind of money and wasn't afraid of GM going under, I could see myself owning one of these. I've always liked Buicks, as well as Oldsmobiles. I remember as a young kid back in the 80's that Buicks, Oldsmobiles and even Mercurys were looked upon as status symbols by many of my classmates (despite the bad quality issues, but hey, we were in middle school, what did we care about that?) My parents had an '86 Cutlass Supreme coupe, black with red leather and chrome "Super Stock" rims. Whenever I was taken to school in it, even the kids who like to bully me seemed to respect me when they saw me getting out of it. So my point here is that I still feel a little bit classier when I'm behind the wheel of a Buick, Olds, or the occasional Mercury, so this car could certainly work for me, if only finances permitted... -Richard
