  1. There is no cheap cheap enough to compensate for ugly and dumb.
  2. I sold my TVR twice between Christmas and New Years while the blizzards were piling up the snow. The price of my car went up so high so quickly the first auction that many buyers were squeezed out. At the auctions conclusion I discovered the "winner" was out at sea and needed a bunch of my financial and paypal information prior to transferring funds which I would not provide. When I checked the address he had supplied eBay on zillow and google maps, it was an empty lot. The second high bidder was represented as being the owner of a sports car dealership in Italy. I checked him out with my bro
  3. Sad sight is exactly right. What a waste the parts not being preserved. How destructive to toss that top.
  4. There seems to be a feeding frenzy on eBay right now with TC's bringing some nice bids. You might consider listing yours. Best of luck with that beauty whatever you decide.
  5. This is not my car and I know nothing about it other than it is on eBay with a buy it now of $4,500. Looks good in the photos. Represented as 49K with one owner.
  6. I wish you the best with this car. It appears to be very fairly priced. I have spread the word some here on the East Coast stressing it is a 16 Valve as I suggested to you a while back. In my opinion, a deposit that is not followed through on is only partial compensation for storage, the cost of funds tied up in the car and for any sales lost you might not even know about. The "buyer" may have been attempting a no risk sale. The deposit loss became his or her risk and a cost of doing business.
  7. Bill I sent two emails to the lister the first time he posted it for sale. He responded to neither and made no correction to his listing. His lack of knowledge regarding this uncommon car is understandable and forgivable. His failure to correct the listing once having been informed (now three times) is not, in my opinion. A lister offering to sell to a buyer that may have to make a decision from a long distance or that can verify the lister's information only at considerable expense incurs the absolute obligation to be scrupulously honest . But, then that may just be the way I do my car sell
  8. westcoastclassics is still misrepresenting the TC they have re-listed. This TC is presented as having the 16 valve 200 hp engine and as having Fondmetal wheels. It has neither. Rather, it has one Fondmetal wheel with four aftermarket wheels and the 8 valve turbo engine. If the car is as nice as it looks there should be no need to be other than fully honest. The lister knowingly misrepresenting such easily checked things leads me to question the harder to verify assertions. There are a number of true 16 valve TC's on the market right now. This is not one of them. Do your homework. Be an in
  9. Sorry to hear about the hail damage. We got hit here hard, also. I watched the uTube videos and tried the dry ice method on my wagon. I had no success. The PDR folks now they know some magic and my car is back to as new.
  10. This is a common problem in older Volvos. I am not a mechanic but seem to recall the fix for them is to replace the brain (or system) that controls the flaps and that the piece had a number of air lines attached that ran to those flaps opening and closing them as needed when things worked right and not doing so when they did not.
  11. 89TC..Thanks for your input. I am very surprised with your passion and ongoing interest in my TC hunt that you have not jumped all over 89TCMaserati's car just down the street from you. I buy to keep and as a "serial" collector with room for but a couple if I find something else first, that is what gets bought. I kept my last TVR for a number of years and only its sale opened up the possibility of another collector car purchase. If the right Cutlass comes along the TC hunt will stop for another few years. My interest in TC's has long preceded 2007 and certainly your join date. My early log in
  12. I thought this was you: P.O. Box 423 Woodland Park, CO 80866 719.330.0697 Sorry. GA I can do. Details, please.
  13. 89TC Maserati That should have been SE US not SE Colorado. Found you a top. Congratulations on the sale.
  14. Still looking. More firm in my conviction it is black on black or ginger or ginger with yellow that I am interested in. I would not like white nor feel comfortable in red. Cabernet is not appealing but might work. It is not a show car but an above average occasional use car I seek that has not been subjected to smoke. Just as good would be a nice 95 Cutlass convertible Oh, almost forgot: Southern and Eastern.
