    Fun Fast — This car was fast. Should have never gotten ride of it. At 95.000 miles never burned or used oil. Was kind of different having this car with a factory 3 speed on the floor instead of the advertised 4 speed. I think this may have help make this car fast off the line.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 442

    Cons: Not having it now.

    Fun Car — Performance- acceleration, handaling Build Quality- no repairs needed, built tough Appearance- exterior is smoking hot Cost of ownership- gas mileage, paint and maintenance Fun factor- Just ask the police that were eating my dust yesterday afternoon, and it jumps nicely.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: fun

    Cons: fast

    442 Like No Other! — 1970 rebuilt 455 cu big block under the hood, 408 hp on the dyno. Will quarter mile it this summer, shoulf be a 12 sec run. This car is so badass...it was stolen the first year i owned it, they took it on a flat bed trailer,yet they were dumb enough to drive it through my neighborhood.

    Pros: 2 1/2 inch exhaust sounds badass

    Cons: gas mileage

    says:
    My uncle owned a 442. I drove it a couple of times. The Olds handled a tad better. I think the 442 had a larger Olds Rocket engine, and a sportier suspension, but they were basically the same car.
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 1969 Buick Skylark better.
    "The cargo capacity is about the same, but the Buick had a lower trunk entry."
    Value Ranked 1969 Buick Skylark better.
    "It was pretty much an equivalent car, but at a better price."
    Would Buy Ranked 1969 Buick Skylark better.
    "Well, now it would be a higher collector value; there were far fewer made, and of course, sentimental value but at the time the 442 commanded a premium price."
