  1. Interested in acquiring either a Third Generation Oldsmobile Toronado Convertible (1979 - 1985). Car must be in very good condition, or better. Prefer low miles. Red, or variant thereof, factory paint a big plus. And yes, I am aware some/most of the rag tops were ASC modifications. Any/All leads appreciated! Thanks -

  4. Have you ever tried to to collect from a transporter's insurer on a claim? No amount of money could be for the aggravation involved in trying to do so, IMHO.
  5. Here is another. Can it be worth what the buyer is asking, given the conditon? https://www.carsforsale.com/vehicle/details/13014842
  6. 2 weeks ago $1.19 for regular 87. Today, $1.79! SE Wisconsin.
  7. The location of the device is where the spare tire was situated on my 1963 Corvair.

    what is it?

    1959 Oldsmobile is close, but no cigar?
  9. Perhaps the question should be, "Who among us has not wrecked a car when they were younger?" My worst wreck was when I was around 17. I was leaving my girlfriend's house and had gone about a block when a woman came over a hill on the approaching intersecting road (unable to be seen until she crested the hill) and failed to yield, as per the sign. My 60 Olds Super 88 t-boned her right in the driver side door of her 1958 Ford 4-door sedan. As a result of the impact her front bench seat came free of its moorings. As it rose up in the air it hit the door handle on the passenger side of her car and opened the door. Both her and the bench seat exited the car. I viewed her laying on the ground and thought I killed her. I immediately ran to a house on the corner, knocked and asked to use the phone; no cells phones back then. The lady of the house turned and started walking. I followed. Next thing I know both of us were standing in her bathroom! Evidently the phone was right next to me when I entered the home and did not see it. Turned out the woman I hit sustained a broken hip. I had to hire a lawyer and sue her. I recall going with my attorney to collect the settlement monies. The woman I hit was present, in a wheel chair! Did I feel bad? I felt sorry for her, but being a kid I sorely needed the money to have my car repaired and I felt good about getting that money!
  10. It seems strange to me that seller would make mention of "custom hubcaps," but not picture them?
  11. #1 - Yes, the ceiling/roof in this bay has scissor trusses, raising the height. #2 - No matter which ride happens to be on the lift, it will have a heavy duty plastic drop cloth attached to the undercarriage to catch whatever/everything.
  12. I have a 2-post and am able to store one car in the air on the lift and a second under the raised car.
