GM names Buick’s 10 Most Collectible Cars from past and present

Buick Regal GS

Buick got the attention of classic car insurance firm Hagerty Insurance with its latest Regal GS model, which made the insurer’s “2012 Hot List”, receiving special recognition.

The Hot List is a list of mass market classic cars priced under $100,000. ”In order to be included on the annual Hagerty Hot List, the vehicle must be geared toward the driving enthusiast beyond just being a form of transportation,” said Hagerty.” Like the other Buick classics listed here, the 2012 Regal GS will be remembered more than most of its peers for many years down the road.”

Given Hagerty’s strong opinion of the Buick, it was placed on the Hot List amongst all classic cars. One of the outstanding factors of the model is the manual transmission, which they commented “at a time when allegedly more sporting makes don’t offer real three-pedal manual transmissions, Buick is doing it with the Regal GS.”

“The Regal GS is a unique and thrilling vehicle for the Buick brand,” said General Motors North America President Mark Reuss. “As someone who drove a classic Skylark to prom and owned other incredible Buicks like an ’87 GNX, I can say it deserves to be viewed among the best Buick has built.”

Along with the Hot List, Hagerty put together a list in collaboration with Buick of the Top 10 most-collectable Buick models. The list is as follows:

  •  2012 Buick Regal GS
  •  1932 Model 90 sport phaeton
  •  1937 66C Century convertible coupe
  •  1940 Super Model 59 Woody Estate Wagon
  •  1947 Roadmaster Woody Wagon
  •  1949 Roadmaster Convertible
  •  1953 Skylark
  •  1963 Riviera
  •  1970 GSX Stage 1 Hardtop Coupe
  •  1987 GNX

While the Hot List includes models under $100,000, this Buick list includes some valued well over that mark.
