Unlikely Stick: 2003 Oldsmobile Alero
Remember when Oldsmobile sold the Alero in the 2000s in a sporty coupe version with a 5-speed manual gearbox? Yeah. Me neither…but apparently it was a thing. Find this 2003 Oldsmobile Alero offered for $1,600 in Anchorage, AK. Tip from Zach Z.
The Alero was a rental-spec midsize from Oldsmobile that was sold from 1998 through 2004 to unsuspecting buyers. You probably couldn’t find one single thing that the Alero did better than a Camry from the same era…except that it wasn’t a Camry. This one has a 2.2 liter Ecotec 4-banger mated to a 5-speed Getrag manual gearbox…which will be exactly as much fun as it sounds.
See a cleaner example of a 5-speed Alero…because this one is scuzzy. firstname.lastname@example.org
~ I believe that I would like to have this. Clean, 5 speed, cheap. Nice [long] drive home.
I'll pick you up at the airport!
I can't vouch for this car, but I can say that Zach is a great guy and it is very unlikely that he would murder you and wear your skin like a parka. Very unlikely.
I thought we weren't talking about that anymore, Vince.
I'd argue that the court order isn't 100% clear on that point.
What part of 'mostly stop referring to said unfortunate episode online' is unclear? Is it the 'mostly', because I agree, it does leave a little wiggle room.
Anyway, the nice men in white coats said that I'm perfectly fit to be a productive member of society again.
WTF no Quad 4….?
