Great car. Any 4 speed Buick is a rarity. In my opinion, big cube Buick, Olds, Pontiac cars with 4 speeds and AC are my favorites. I've always liked the Colonnade cars. In '78 I bought a '76 Malibu Classic two door, medium blue with a painted silver blue top and Rallye Wheels. Great blue cloth interior. With a 305 small block it was slow and had bad gas mileage, but it sure looked great and rode well. If I had a Colonnade car again, I'd be tempted to do a lot of front and rear bumper sectioning, narrowing, and tucking close to the body, as well as ditching the bumper factory brackets which weigh over 125 lbs I believe. And if you're into restomods, the Colonnade cars have large wheel wells that can take much wider tires.
