  1. Garish, excessive, road hog, etc. Yes to all of that. But do I ever want to own that car! Turnpike Cruiser was the best named 50's car to match" made in the USA" dominance of the era.
  2. Good to see some French Car culture, Merci' I've always wanted to tour Paris and area in a Parisienne!
  3. After a strong late winter/ early spring run up of prices in 2021 old car prices are still high, but sales have stalled so the dip has started. Don't know if it's short or long term. Crystal ball is too cloudy and scratched up to get a true read. Besides I probably could not spot it with my old eyes and poor perception. This is in central Canada. Lot's of nice iron still sitting, not selling. I hope it's just a price correction to get rid of the high marked up "flipped" cars!
  4. Always liked the looks of the 190. Only did drive one once, so never got the real feel of it. I had a 65 230 SL and was thinking of making a trade deal on the 190SL. My friend had a very nice looking 1959 at the time, so I was short term smitten. I ended up selling the 230 to a friend who still has it over 30 years later.
  5. Known as a "Shooting Brake" on the other side of the pond.
  6. A have another friend with a rare 1970 442 that has that broadcast card showing it was custom painted W31 for a Olds executive. One of one in that color.
  7. That's the assembly line info card telling what the car is to receive as it goes down the line. That's a seriously important piece of documentation!
  8. I have a 1972 442 convertible that was sold new here in Ontario Canada. So I was able to get the GM Vintage Vehicle documents verifying authentic provenance. Not a W30, but a W29 optioned car. I agree with you, no paperwork? Consider it a clone until proven otherwise.
  9. Have seen a few of these private collector auction this year up here in Canada. Mostly just trying to cash in on the covid price hype. I'm always skeptical of these small private auctions as you never know who you're bidding against. The house, the brother in law or legitimate buyers.
  10. Some more details will go a long way in achieving interest or even a sale. Pictures are a must if you wish to sell a car in 2021!
