  1. I owned a 92 Allante. Yes, price wise they are "dirt cheap." However, they are high maintenance and expensive to maintain. Some parts are in the "unobtainable" category or very expensive; Speed Dependent Damping (SDD), the Bosch brake system, headlights. Moreover, the interior hardware is, for lack of a better term, "cheap plastic." Over time it becomes brittle and easily broken. One has to be devoted to the marque and have very deep pockets to properly maintain an Allante.
  2. I have a Porter-Cable and can state it does a fantastic job!
  3. Does not a stop light defeat the purpose of a roundabout? Don't know, I am not a traffic engineer; just asking.

    Yes, past tense as do not own it any longer. That I do not does not mean I can no longer appreciate the ride.
  5. The hubcaps certainly look like Oldsmobile.

    Owned a 92, and loved it! 2 complaints where the cheap/plastic interior hardware and the hardness of the Recaro seats on long drives.
  7. All I can say is m 1976 Pinto had a mere 185K on the odometer when I passed her on to owner #2! Yes, I did have to replace the front floor pans in it during that time. Had a sheetmetal guy do the jobb! It used toilet paper oil filters during the entire 185K mile lifetime with me.
  8. No, did not see it. Thanks for the link!
  9. While I shall swear to nothing, I do believe the car has no gas pedal?
  10. No, the engine I am referencing had aluminum heads on a cast iron block. It had an aluminum cylinder block with cast-iron sleeves, and unique lightweight block casting . Problems originating from the used of different metals in the block and head became pervasive, often resulting in head-gasket failures. Additional issues included oil-pump failures and head bolts pulling free of the block. https://blog.consumerguide.com/what-was-the-cadillac-ht4100/
