I’ll be the first to admit that there is an abundance of sketchy stuff and dodgy sellers on eBay. If they aren’t straight up scammers, then you’ve got people like the guys who show pictures of bikini clad ladies or regular classic car dealers who know how to polish a turd better than the assistant curator of the museum of scatology…but this next car is sold by a seller with the user name…wait for it…fiero-phil. Yup. This guy is the real-deal…and he is so confident in his real-deal-ness that he doesn’t even include a single word in the body of the ebay ad…and I still like it. Impressive.

A few decades ago if you had $36k burning a hole in your Hammer pants, you could head over to your local Buick dealer and pickup a little convertible called to the Reatta. For $67k in today’s money you got something that was basically a 2-door Pontiac Grand Prix with more cowl shake than Shakira […]
Today’s Mid Week Match-Up is a request from our friend Dr J (aka Julian) — who you may remember from his time on the DT Radio Show. His son’s Mazda 626 just cashed in its chips for the last time, so with a healthy budget of 1,000 smackeroos and a short commute (2.5 miles), let’s […]
The current crop of press reviews of the recently accounted Buick Avista remind me of another Buick that was hailed as the next best thing since sliced beef. Back in the late 80s, folks raved about a new Buick coming to market that would bring back Buick’s mojo, and reinvent Buick. Of course we all […]
If you are in the market for a grossly depreciated two-seat personal luxury car and want somethign with a domestic badge, you might be tempted into picking up a Cadillac Allanté, but that would be a mistake when something as quintessentially ‘Merican as the Buick Reatta is an option. The Reatta could be accused of […]
