Those are really sporty looking. Don't see too many of them around either.

Not bad but I thought you were looking for more of a bonnie type ride.

Well, it should have a pretty compliant ride, being a Buick and all, right? Has Dynaride and such. Besides, I'm an Equal Opportunity Car Buyer, lol :P It'* got some of the big things I'm looking for: Uniqueness, Performance, Luxury. And hopefully good seats and a reasonably supple ride. We'll see how the test drive goes I'm just worried I'll instantly be put off by all the electronics. Can you even put a Regular CD Player in one of these? That'* a MUST, I have to have that I don't know. The guy said it'll only take about 70 bucks to make the thing perfect. Seemed like a nice guy, too, said he bought it from an old neighbor desperate to keep someone from suing him and getting it. Said he'd drive it into the lake if this guy, sounded like he was mid-20s, didn't take it lol, anyway, we'll see how it goes Thanks for the early replies

that doesnt sound like too bad of a price to me, they are very rare cars, there was a red one for sale in town last summer, i think he wanted 3500-4000 for it... they look cool, 2 seater sporty car
