Hey....you forgot the Buick Regal T type.

Well you know what my first pic would be.....Grand National.

Followed by the Regal....probably the best looking of the G bodies. IMO.

Then The Monte Carlo....followed by Cutlass.....followed by the Grand Prix.

Shoot really those G body cars were just some of the best looking cars of the 80's.

While, I love the Cutlass and the Regal, the T-Bird and Cougar were great designs that still stand out today.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...why isn't the Grand National in the poll?

At any rate, that gets my vote.

I would go with the Buick, and would definitely go for one of the turbo models.

I would call that Gran Prix more like a "Petit Prix". The early 70's one I liked, this one not so much.

If they were sold out of Buicks, I'd go with the Turbo T-bird.

The Cutlass outsold all of them, didn't it?

I never liked that body style GP, the front grille was ugly as well as the tail lights. The Cutlass and Regal just looked so much smoother.
