I'd hate to try to find my new car in that mess!

(ya keep hitting the PANIC button on your key fob)
Is that it? No... Wait, is that it? No... Wait, I think thats it. Yep. Just a few more miles. Dang! How do I turn off the alarm? I took out my alternator for fuel economy, and now I need to save that precious energy for driving home! Which button is it!!!

Wonder why no GM cars are featured. Maybe GM met supply with demand preciscly, or maybe its demand is too large for GM to supply. They did shut down for a while during bankrupcy court.

Well, of course. They stopped making Metros!

I like those photos.
I got to see somethnig like it more than once as a kid in the 80s truckdriving with my dad to the container ships, the auto ships were not far away. Big port for many machines. they used to move alot of them with drivers in big parking lots.
I specifically remember hundreds of subarus, of the 1980s kind, every time I see these photos. It was fun watching the mass movement to thier spots. CB was buzzing for some reason...those cars did something snappy/funny even back then. maybe it was the cannonball movie, setting the conversatons laughing, do not know.

knowing mint condition for any of those models is climbing to 3700 dollars...better than a stock market to hang onto a dozen or so...

imagine owning just ten dual range carbed...I give it 5k in a short time now, more than ever... :(

It upsets me to see a proving ground being used as a parking lot. Me, I'd do some coastdown testing on the skidpad and determine how much more energy it takes to corner than to go straight. Or maybe I'd do a few laps of the test track at different speeds and create a real-world mph vs mpg plot.

My friend used to work at a GM dealer around 1998-1999 and back then was talking about these 2-3 year old unsold Centurys and Cieras that you could get for about half the price of when they were popular on the lot. Last production year was 96 for the a-body.

I'll take 10 at $500 each. :)
