The Ten Most Collectible Buicks

By Blake Z. Rong | February 07, 2012
Sorry, but your Aunt Ethel's LeSabre didn't make the cut of Buick's 10 most collectible cars. However, she might recognize the Regal nameplate: is the 2012 Buick Regal GS a future classic? Based on its rarity and its even rarer inclusion of a third pedal, yes—and now’s a good time as any to look at the Buicks that are worth fighting over at Barret-Jackson, or across the tubes on eBay Motors. Hawaiian shirts at the ready, please. Compiled by collector-car insurance company Hagerty, who are experts on this sort of thing, the list spans a good 80 years of Buick’s 109-year history: The oldest car on there is the 1932 Model 90 Sport Phaeton, which helped introduce Buick’s first eight-cylinder engines. Some familiar names are on the list: the venerable Roadmaster; the “light-your-fire” GSX of the muscle car wars; the first (and still gorgeous) 1963 Riviera; and the 1987 Buick GNX, a car that single-handedly gave the world the "Darth Vader, your car is ready" cliché. Some of these cars’ values routinely go for over $100,000. Does the 2012 Buick Regal GS belong in this vaunted company? Read the list and sound off below in the comments.

Take the 2012 Regal off the list and put the Buick Wildcat on the list.
