  1. But don’t buy direct from Steele, cheaper through one of their distributors. Of course they charge more to keep their distributors in business.
  2. 1939 Buick Special (current) 1967 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova (current) 1988 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer (1st car) 1997 Chevrolet Malibu (1st family car) 2002 Acura MDX (current) 2003 Honda Accord EX-L (traded for MDX) 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD (sold to buy house) 2009 Toyota Corolla (son’s 1st car) I have an assigned company car that I can also drive anywhere I need for personal use-including pulling our pop-up camper. As long as i have one of those, our personal car will remain the 2002 MDX. Those have been: 2009 Saturn Vue 2010 C
  3. Sort of related, while we are on brake history, didn’t some manufacturers go from 4 wheel disc brakes back to rear wheel drums, due to parking brake problems with the disc brakes?
  4. But if you have other polices, they stack right in top of each other, in many states. If you wreck your classic and cause $100,000 in damages, and only have minimum coverage, then the policy on your everyday car can then take over. Not every state is like this though.
  5. Marty has a great idea, offering to assist the buyer re-sell the car. But--then you are acting as a sort of middle man between yet another buyer and, still, THIS GUY. This buyer is still in the picture at that point, and that seems even more nauseating, long term.
  6. Not to add much to what has already been said, but the best way I think, as mentioned, is to compare a sign to others online that appear in searches at legitimate places. The other rule I use is that if there is more than 1 available (from the same or other sellers), or if the seller has sold the same one before, it's fake. 2 of the exact same sign worn in just about the same way don't exist (in my way of thinking anyway).
  7. Great paint on desirable cars is always a winning combination. Just don’t do brown, or pea green 🙂
  8. What gets me are the endless ads with filthy vehicles. They will often even say “just needs a good cleaning.” I suppose it’s just another example of the current generation’s attitude about everything being disposable and temporary. I can’t imagine trying to sell a dirty vehicle. Have some self-respect.
  9. Driver’s ed was a 1992 Buick Century. I took my test in the 1988 S-10 Blazer shown here loaded down for a biking trip.
  10. Hi there Marty, this is Billy in Kentucky (the guy you got your doors and window frames from). Just a heads up, you will likely get some fraudulent people contacting you saying they have what you need, but don't. They just want you to pay and then they disappear. That happens when you post your phone and email publicly (and even sometimes when you don't). You might want to remove your personal contact info until someone asks for it. Have you checked with Dave Tacheny (write to him at 11949 Oregon Ave. N., Champlin, MN 55316, or call 612-427-3460) for a fender?
  11. I left my lowers on when I restored my car. They still serve the purpose fine and softened up a little with some WD-40. Considering how it’s driven and cared for now, I expect to get more years than I will ever need out of them.
  12. I have original plates on both of my cars-correct county and all. I think they certainly add a lot.
  13. In my work, attorneys that don’t know me expect me to negotiate and always like my offer, until they realize that’s it. I give a good figure right off the bat and I’m done. The ones that know me like it. They know where I stand and it’s done. My offers are informed, reasonable, and work for both parties.
  14. What someone paid for a car is irrelevant to me. The car speaks for itself, and I put a value on it to me. Either they sell it to me or they don’t. I don’t negotiate. I do the same thing when selling. If a person doesn’t like my price, I don’t care. I always tell people that my price is not negotiable, so they don’t waste their time on it expecting a bunch of dickering. This has always worked for me.
