I’ve had some discussions with other DT talking heads about what year was the pinnacle of automotive perfection. To me the answer is easy — 1965, the year that you could buy an original Fastback Mustang or a gorgeous C2 Corvette or a 65 Buick Roadmaster unencumbered by smog equipment or safety stuff, but DT’s cub reporter Hunsbloger thinks that 1967 was a better year because most cars now had dual circuit brakes, seat belts in both front and rear and four-way flashers — a minimum he believes for safety on modern roads or track days. Let’s just split the difference and agree that 1966 is the best year and enjoy it with this 1966 Buick Electra 225 offered for $995 in Naples, FL via craigslist. Tip from Dascpcu.
