Buick was traditionally considered the “gentleman’s car” division of General Motors, essentially just a step below Cadillac when it came to luxury and prestige, and as howstuffworks.com point out, “when the marque finally got around to producing genuine muscle cars, it’s little surprise they were among the most luxurious of the breed.” The ’66 Skylark Gran Sport is generally considered a “sleeper” muscle car, cheaper than, say, the comparable Chevelle SS 396.
