Man, its a 1 out of 587 cars. I see one a year for sale in the country!!! The */C LSS is a collectors car in the making. Mine just needs a lot of work. Think of how rare you're GXP is. Would you consider it a beater? I sure hope not.

[.

I guess its all releative. if I had your LSS it would be my daily driver...I hate the term Beater. Your LSS and my GXP are never gonna be collector cars like the GNX buick. Being that the LSS is your newest car to you its not a beater.

Anyway good luck with your beater search

Maybe not as high of value as the GN GNX, BUT i'm sure the LSS and Bonneville GXP will have value as they age. I mean in terms of 1990s cars the LSS stands fairly high.

You will find yourself fixing the winter beater a lot more than driving it if you get one THAT cheap...
