  1. With 2020 a few months away it looks like "Boom, Bust, Echo Theory" is coming true. Up here in the frozen tundra of South Western Ontario old cars are very soft.
  2. Yes, the rear removable window was gone after 71 or 72 along with the fiber optics on the console. Both were good features for the cramped, usually hot C3 cockpit
  3. Canadian ordered car, no A/C was the majority of them sold here in the early 70's. Hot in the summer, but better than the 78-9's with the microwave rear glass!
  4. 1973 Corvette is my favorite C3 and can be had for under $10k needing work. This car had been sitting in a local garage undisturbed for over 25 years and is very nice underneath. Has a fresh 383 stroker, original 4 speed, code 952 Corvette Yellow
  5. As a former 4 time Allante' 3 Fiero's and 1 time Reatta as well as a minty 90 Toronado owner I wouldn't recommend any of them over a C4. But for the price difference as noted a C5 is a better, more enjoyable car for not a lot more.
  6. I've owned several C4's. Getting in and out of them is a pain, styling is very bland, but still fun to drive for very little money. I'd suggest buying 91 and newer for the better dash, bumper covers and wheel options. I like the last of the L89 engines in the 91 models over the LT-1, but not a deal breaker.
  7. Not an Imperial, but more traditional colors. This one is in my hometown. Heard of it, never laid eyes on it.
  8. Or this one also in Ontario on kijiji https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/woodstock-on/1936-chrysler-airflow-c9/1464558220?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  9. Re-listed 9 days ago London Ontario kijiji https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/london/1936-chrysler-airflow/1463455872?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  10. The bustle back aped the Seville. Neither were respected new or now. But I do prefer the Imperial. Funny how both of them gained a bad reputation due more to reliability than style. Sign me up for a low priced Frank Sinatra special edition please!
  11. this one is restored, but will likely be there https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/ottawa/1955-buick-special-convertible-last-offer-before-hershey/1463029201?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  12. If anyone is serious about buying this they should request the VIN which will clear up the factory Imperial questions. This is a Canadian built car so make sure you search the proper data. Our north of Detroit (South of Detroit if built in Windsor Ontario) cars tend to stray from the USA built program a bit. I'm located an hour from it. From experience I can tell you the Pre-War market in Ontario is soft, very soft.
  13. This car has been for sale for awhile, so maybe room to make a deal. Also it's in Canadian $$ so even better priced! NOT MINE
