Noticed that too. Then noticed all the digital displays are actually still functional, which completely distracted me from the extra 5k plus miles. This car is a steal.

Perfect take. It’s not an Allante, much less a 560SL, but it’s a competent little car that will get you there in style and keep doing so for years to come. $2500 is not just NP for one in this condition, but bordering on highway robbery.

That 3800 isn’t powerful by today’s standards, true, but the 3800 is decently torquey. I believe that’s a pre-series 1 unit that has just north of 210 ft-lbs of torque and somewhere north of 160 HP (I don’t remember exactly, but it was pretty great for the day). The 3800 is a great engine in just about any of its Read more

That transmission was cranked out in about the last 45 minutes they were even building them. That specific model was discontinued in the next model year, after having been installed for about five or six years. By the time this one was made, its little hassles had been pretty much sorted. Bolted behind the stout but Read more

Definitely! Replace that missing trim-piece and this thing would basically be 100%. Park it next to the Allante at Radwood and make Chad look like a bitch!

It’s cheap enough that it falls under the anything that will get you to work price clause. I think it’s also a genuinely interesting car, as GM’s last effort (that I can think of) to make a halo car for normally conservative Buick. It’s easily a NP.

Also because “friends” of the GOP look at that 48% of all mail delivered worldwide and see $$$ signs. We will all probably still be able to vote by “next-day delivery” via FedEX or UPS, for only $20. Effectively a poll tax.

I was waiting for the right wing talking points to make their way here. The USPS does NOT lose money because it allows Jeff Bezos and Amazon to “just drop packages on the floor” and say “deliver it.” The USPS actually breaks even or makes a tiny profit on operations every year. The ONLY reason that they need a bailout

Came here to say this. It’s been a decades long campaign to bankrupt the postal service. Now that voting by mail is becoming more of a necessity, the USPS demise must happen as soon as possible. Screw you states that only vote by mail!

President Trump threatened to veto the next $2 trillion coronavirus aid package if it includes funds to save the storied institution. (Because honestly, why would you include funds to save the employer of more than 2 million Americans in a U.S. stimulus package?) Read more

I’m voting NP on this, even though it goes against everything I know. I’m just going to blame it on COVID-19 isolation-induced madness. Read more

It’s obvious I am in the minority here, but I like it. I voted NP assuming it is as good as the seller says it is. I have always liked the look of the hornet, and sticking it on top of a M seems like a good way to get the looks without actually having an AMC.
