Beautiful isn’t always an adjective associated with cars. Today, when it is, we usually think of flashy sports cars and expensive luxury sedans. But don’t forget about the timeless beauties—the models that have grown more beautiful over the years—their silhouettes still instantly recognizable no matter how much time passes.

MSN Autos recently featured a list of the 15 most beautiful American cars of all time. Not one. but two Buicks made the list.

The first is the 1953 Buick Skylark—Buick’s old-timey luxury drop top four-seater. With a cloth convertible top and windshield that sat lower than typical Buick convertibles of the time, the ’53 Skylark exuded its own unique sense of confidence and elegance that set itself apart from all other models of its time. Fat whitewall tires framing shiny wire wheels sat under a body that sported overstated body lines and basically screamed for attention.

The second, from ten model years later, is the 1963 Buick Riviera. Originally designed as a Cadillac, the Riviera found its eventual home under the Buick brand name. The ’63 Riviera sold like hotcakes in its first year, selling out of all 40,000 manufactured units. The luxury coupe boasted rigid lines and an elongated body—a sculpted marvel that turned as many heads back then as it still would today.

Buick stages a Comeback

2013 Buick Encore2013 Buick EncoreBuick is no longer your grandparent’s type of car. The interior of a Buick is so technologically advanced and the exterior boasts clean, crisp style lines. These reasons and more are why Buick delivered their best retail sales year in seven years in 2012.

Buick is GM’s modern luxury brand that offers luxury cars and SUVs without the high prices. Buick is really shaping up to be a mainstream brand with luxurious amenities.

“Buick’s way of doing business is paying off,” said Brian Sweeney, vice president of Buick Sales and Service. “Our third straight year of growth is the result of beautiful design and quality engineering, a customer-focused dealer network, and opportunities like Experience Buick leasing.”

The Buick Enclave is Buick’s best-selling model and dealerships across the United States sold more than 50,000 units in 2012. The all-new Enclave is expected to retain these numbers and add even more in 2013.
