BUICK REGAL

2-door 5-seater coupé.

Smart but angular 'personal' hardtop coupé derived from basic Century chassis (see above) distinguished by use of optional turbocharged V6 engine, one of only two US turbos at the time. Up to 175bhp for 1979, excellent for strangled USA machines at the time. Officially only sold in Britain in 1978, but are there any left now?
