my friend is currently in the market for a sporty 2-door car, and naturally i was showing him the ETC. he absolutely loved it (couldn't even look at the 4 times more expesive CL500 of the same year and milage, cause they were so crude and ugly in comparison), and we looked into the older Eldos for fun and found this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6147&item=2490778789&rd=1 Can u say "Pimpn Mobile" :coolgleam

damn that thing is pimp. you gotta love that grill, you think i could find one like that for mine? that interior is nice too, damn. that is a nice car, if your friend doesnt buy that (or bid on it atleast) he is an idiot.

I love the color! Seems like a nice car for that price. Strange, I saw a 2005 Dodge with the same type of color called orange pearl I think it was at the dealership today. Plus I think that color is in style right now, although it looks more burnt orange than gold by my monitor.

You're probably right. I tend to burn out my eyes so I dim it a bit. Let me know if my avatar is too bright, I might have to dim them all.

velour, a much more comfortable material than leather

ugh, that grille thing is ugly.....

400hp, 550ft lbs of torque.... mmmm.....

Something I noticed... when somebody says "oh wow, leather seats... very comfortable" I think to myself... no.... it is weird... the material of the seat dfosn't do much to determine the comfort... I actually like the velour in my '89 Olds and '79 DeVille d'Elegance a little better for comfort.... the only thing leather that I really siad, wow, this is really nice... are those big leather couches usually at doctors office.... they are about $2k too....

... throw in the fact that the leather (well front seats, back seat is mint) on my '93 DeVille with 94k miles shows some very light discolor, cracks and wear spots... which the velour seats... whole interrior actually on my 15 year old Oldsmobile with 123k miles looks practically new... and that car is used for work, if I gotta do gardening, junkyard etc... basically, I keep it clean inside, but never go out of my way... and it still looks new.... my friends family has an '89 DeVille... 219k miles, velour seats... the interrior (besides arm rests) look like they came out of a 60k car... leather is great and all.. but neglect and time will kill it... then it is very expensive to fix....

I thought it was velour. I should recognise it, my 78 has it..

That's a little insane. I couldn't drive it with a straight face.

I like the grille but not the car or the colour. I like the later 70s Eldorados better.
