You know, while it doesn’t take much to make a Colonnade car look like something Homer Simpson and the NHTSA dreamed up, it also doesn’t take much to make a Colonnade car look good. The right front end treatment, the right stance, and a graphics package that highlights rather than detracts from the sculptured body lines does wonders, and this 1975 Buick Century Free Spirit pace car edition for sale on Hemmings.com combines all three of those elements, along with a little bicentennial fever.
