Buick Motor Division has announced they will offer a special edition Regal and Skylark to commemorate GM's sponsorship of the '96 U.S. Olympic Team and the Olympic Games in Atlanta. The cars will go on sale next year and will feature special trimmings, including the Olympic rings embroidered into the headrests of the Regal. (BUICK). THREE-CAR GARAGE?
