    I love it when people try to sell cars like that. It has 9 miles over 20 years. Every seal in that car is rotted, you cant drive it. Its just there to look pretty.

    This particular car IIRC has been expertly maintained over the years - dedicated owners. Last time this particular car was sold was in 2004 / or 2003 - and fetched $89k

    1 of 547 ever made and one of the most amazing American cars ever made, you'd better believe it's worth some serious cash.

    Those cars will be going for double or triple that in five years.

    No trolling at all, it's ugly as sin... I see absolutely nothing special about it next to the fact only 500 so were made and it's incredibly low mileage.

    1987 Buick Grand National
    We test a Buick Regal Grand National that weighs 3520 pounds, is shaped like a dishwasher, and makes an advertised 235 horsepower. Somehow, the car blasts to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds - quicker than the just-tested Countach. We ask Buick what the car's actual, you know, real-life horsepower rating is. Buick asks what the definition of "is" is.

    the looks of a car doesn't make it special. the uniqueness of a vehicle IMHO is categorized by it's production number [rarity], effect on the market, historical value [ie has buick made another production turbo car?] etc.

    to be fair, the turbo corvairs never gained this cash, neither did the turbo pintos.
