YEPYEP!

Interior could be better (both color and condition), chrome is damaged (angry_face.gif), and it looks like it's missing trim pieces on either side (I see clips...). I'd still drive it. redface.gif

What do I need? Nothing today, but I always look for things for the garage to flip.

Picked up an `87 GNX, yeeeehaw. biggrin.gif Wasn't even on the block, it's a no sale from a previous auction.

Oh boy - are you going to look like this when you drive it? I'm pretty sure there is a dress code to drive a GNX:

I'm not even sure I'm going to keep it, it was at a good price so I bought it. Has like 1200 miles on it and has never been titled.

I'll have to see if I can dig up some mullet pics of me from the 80s, I think I still have one from my junior prom (complete with Don Johnson style t-shirt, jacket, and slacks).

After hearing about your costume the time you went out clubbing recently, I can't help but picture this fellow looking with delight at the GNX......biggrin.gif

Kurgen is my idol. wink.gif I met Clancy Brown at a show and he's a really nice guy.


Argh, we bought a chopper.

Two wheeled death machine.....that must have cost a pretty penny.

Not even, that's how I ended up with it, hammered for $15k and caught me off guard. My wife was like, "oooo pretty", and she bid, then no one outbid her. redface.gif

I love this new bid system they're beta testing, it's the shizzle. No more talking on the phone, you just tap keys and they adjust your bid accordingly. Almost makes things a little too easy, though.

That should be easy to flip then, and for a considerable profit!

Yeah, it's a pretty bike. The Mrs said she wants to put it in the "game room". confused.gif

BTW, someone could have bought a Countach replica, nice looking one too, for $20k.

Well, got my Fezza 250GT California replica, 38k. No way anyone could build one for that price, with all the extras.




Needs badging, corsa red paint, and some other cosmetic details, but not bad. Billy, this would be a nice Cali DD, right here.

Almost, almost got a split-window `vette.

That does look nice.....and you wouldn't have to worry about rolling up miles on it.

I had a feeling your wife would like at least one of those little Crosleys. smile.gif

Thanks. smily_headphones1.gif For $7500, what wasn't to like? I fully expected the little Crosley to got for $20k, so she's happy. 26hp w/ 4spd manual and IFS in that sucker, not bad for a car that weighs 750lbs. I'm looking forward to driving it.

We're pulling the Chevy ZZ4 350 from the 250GT replica and using it in a customer car, then upgrading to a 5L Colombo V12. We recently found one for cheap at a scrapyard, Webers and all.
