    Re: Cars and Coffee. Minneapolis's most exclusive monthly car show.

    I was honestly floored to see one in such good condition. Because they 1) rusted out when they were practically new, and 2) were widely regarded as being a huge automotive blunder, so for someone to keep one as nice as that, they must be one sick individual.

Gauges are all off, they don't look factory. Door panels are off as well, the factory trimmed the speakers out a lot nicer than that, those just look hacked in there. Also notice the turn signal lever, its one of those GM multifunction stalks.
    You know, I don't know if it is a replica or not. When it was pulling in, I overheard someone say it was a replica, so maybe? It sounded nice, and the exterior looked spot on...

    BTW, I went down to the local cruise-in last night and snapped this picture right before the Grand National took off. The GS meets her older, faster meaner sister.



    Now I'm off to another car show/giant swap meet.

    Hmmm... so according to the rest of the lounge, I would be a good Yugo candidate.

    Also: GN and GS pic is awesome. Too bad it wasn't light outside.

    Before the Yugo became a debacle and butt of jokes, it actually had the biggest initial launch of any imported car. EVER. Chrysler even offered to buy Yugo America.

    When Consumer Reports tested it, the limelight faded fast. The headline was something like "You're better off buying a good used car than a new Yugo."

    I recall that at one point, there was a Cadillac dealer that offered to throw in a new Yugo with the purchase of any new Cadillac. Now that's a pairing!

    Reminds me a bit of "King of the Hill," where the one guy works at a Cadillac/Hyundai dealership. That always made me laugh...

    I remember when, after Subaru had failed in its' attempted entry into the U.S. market, was selling off the remainder of their U.S. inventory for "$800. or best offer per car." At the time I thought someone ought to by them up and stage a winner takes all demolition derby!

    Re: Cars and Coffee. Minneapolis's most exclusive monthly car show.

    Here's some pics from a car show/swap meet I went to this morning. Coldest car show I've ever been to, it was only 37* when I left this morning!

    '72 Coupe deVille.


    '57 Chrysler New Yorker Hardtop Coupe, in the exact same color the '57 Windsor Sedan was that my dad had when I was a kid.



    Real nice '72 Chevy truck.


    Is this the same color as the one in Bullitt or was that one black?


    Love the color on this '64 Riviera.


    Real nice '79 LeSabre Limited Coupe. The velour wasn't nearly as soft as that in the '85 Riviera.



    I love late Fox-Body Mustangs.




    89-90 FWD hearse.


    Oddly enough, this was parked in spectator parking.


    I love the Riviera's hood ornament.

    You only like the Riv's hood ornament cause you think it's a monogram!

    What happend to "Reliable"? And, can one really be both reserved and radical? Or did you mean reserved as in "set aside for a particular purpose"?
