Published November 10, 1995
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? While there is only one official beer maker, burger and bank for the '96 Games, there's "a garage full" of Olympic carmakers, according to the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. The report notes with no single automobile sponsor willing to pay the $40M required for exclusivity, ACOG organizers divided the category. GM is the official domestic car, Nissan is the official import sport utility vehicle, light truck and minivan, while BMW is the official luxury car (AP/PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 11/10).
