The Capri has always interested me because they can be found so darned cheap. This gets bonus points for being a turbo model.

The Torino is odd. I can't imagine a 390 was an engine option in 1975. The wolf mural on the hood is quite bitchin' though. :ROFLMAO:

I'm not sure I want to buy a wienermobile that is used as a daily. I mean that person would have to be a total weirdo.

What does that have to with it being a good vehicle?
Nothing, but I don't want to deal with that person. I've had to endure too many nut jobs while trying to buy a car before.


What kind of fuel mileage can I expect out of a wienermobile?
Three furlongs to the frankfurter.

It depends on the kind of nut they would be. It could be that he really loved the vehicle and was meticulous about taking care of it.

Maybe 12 going down a step hill with a tornado pushing you.

They thought, "CUSTOM! This is going to be so rad!" It also makes me think it was rear-ended. Meanwhile this must have been a prototype, because I know the other Novas of this era didn't have 4-wheel strut suspension.

I'd take the Fairlane, but are they bringing that sort of money?

Malibu is nice looking. A friend has a 1978 V8 4-speed wagon. It's super clean. Weird thing about it? The rear windows don't roll down.

What was the Rivera painted with last? House paint? BTW, at this point rust repair is so damned expensive. Finding one that doesn't have any sure is worth an extra couple thousand.

Same friend with the Malibu wagon, his son-in-law has a 1966/7 Nova 4-door with a 5.3 swap. It's a couple more dollars than that one, but I'd go for it.

I like it, but that's about $1000 too much.
