Every so often, like a picture of an old girlfriend, you see something from your past that pulls at your heartstrings.. 50k orig miles, stock down to the Calif smog equipment. I think i'll try to snag this 185 hp beast smile.. Photo

If any car ever needed a black/yellow license plate, that is one.

(Yes, I know... technically in '79 CA plates were already blue.)

You have good taste. I have been wondering when those would appreciate in value. I know they aren't inexpensive, but they aren't 60's era muscle car expensive either. The black with gold is sweet!

Having done a little research,, I've honestly convinced myself this is an investment.

i say get one before they become super spendy like the 1st gen and the 70-71 Camaro's.

thanks for all the positive vibes!!

I've got a Purple '95. 3.0, ttops, around 96k on it.
Been holding on to it since '96. Pretty much a survivor. It's been in the garage the last few years mostly. I keep it tagged, took it out for a spin last week.
They are getting scarce. Was offered 6500 last fall. Heck, they were going for 2k a few years ago.

I've been told to sell it, the price will never get better, yer gettin too old for that stuff, blah blah blah.

I don't even argue the fact they don't make Pontiacs anymore, or that the price will go up, as it has become an investment.

It's just a beautiful car, and I like looking at it, so, it stays.

I have a neighbor, Lena, three townhouses west of mine. She is the classic hoarder. In fact she could be on that TV show, "Hoarders". She has a 1964 Corvette in her 1 car garage with so much crap piled on top of it you can't even see the car. Such a waste. She will never do anything with it. She will die and her relatives will have to deal with it.

Ya Reese, that is a shame. But, on the other hand, it being buried and not customized, or ran into the ground, will make that car when it finally does move. It will be like a time capsule. As long as there aren't cats pissing in it or mice eating the interior, someone will get something pretty cool.

Hell Reese, you got me thinking about Private Malone with that story about Lena,

It will feel like more than 185HP.

Such a stunning looking car though.

Trying bf goodrich tires for off-roading for the first time.

She went to a car show and never came home, I never actually had a chance to sit and smell here sweet 80's leatherette

She's the one that got away.. so, the search continues.

its beautiful!!!! Now I believed in love at first sight. If not a secret, how expensive the maintenance of such a vehicle? And how long are car parts? I'd be interested to know.
