Good luck, almost 99% of JY'* know what Allante parts are worth, and you won't get off very easy.

but 1% of them dont...however I doubt there are even more than 10 of those cars nationwide in junkyards.

its a hit or miss car to me.. the few i've seen were either garage queens with <10,000 miles or sort of beat with 100,000+ miles. had to be one of the first cars with memory seats though...

Those were priced above $50,000 IIRC, way back in 87. I've always liked the style of those. I very rarely see them, but I do see them.

LOL - back in the mid 90'* I bought a used 82 El Dorado Diesel and it was broken into and they stole the window switches and the trim around the rear window.... those switches were $400 used; but I got the last laugh - mine didn't work either. LOL

i just bought my 16 year old son his first car, an '88 Allante at
http://www.classic-carauction.com/html/home.cfm
in Palm Springs. drove it 500 miles home at 78 mph and got 24 mpg.
the car drives as good or better than my wifes 2000 SSEi .
its just not as quick as the SSEi, but i do like the way the car drives.
and with NO BACK SEAT , well you know.
all in all a well made car that looks good, drives good and a convertible to boot.

ROD

p.*. the car has an removable aluminum hard top(58 lbs) and a soft top.

i really am a fan of older gm cars, but this one just doesn't strike me as being that great. i'd rather have a reatta or a toronado over that. Those digital gauges are pretty cool tho.
