Denver doesn't get that much snow but from owning a SAAB I suggest the build quality largely depends on who replaced and repaired rather than GM.

Wouldn't be my first purple truck, but I do like the Ranger.

Never was a fan of the 93-2000ish... Something about 90s and 2000s era American cars has made me think everything is held together with plastic.

The Titan seems suspiciously cheap, but would make a good tow rig for someone.

@93Flareside needs that Scirocco.

She's a a beauty. I'd love to build a Stock Eliminator car out of that. But you know, money and time won't allow that.

Awesome find, @ScarFace88 ! Really unique.


At this size does it mean someone on a regular drivers license could drive it? :D
Possibly, but with that trailer I'll bet the combined GVWR is greater than 26k pounds, which would require a CDL.

I do have a soft spot for those big body Suburbans, spending a good 5 years of my life in one traveling all over the Midwest to dragstrips. That one looks to be in great shape, but it's odd they don't mention which engine it has.

I don't get the Fiat 124, it's an uglier Miata with an engine that's probably not as good as the Mazda engine.

That Saturn does have @rickhamilton620 all over it. 🤣

Crossfires are another car I never got. Mercedes platform, odd styling, lackluster performance. Why?

I spent a little time looking at an Aztec in the slave yesterday, my God was that a terribly executed pile of excrement. I know you are a GM guy, @GRtak , but sometimes I wonder how they stay in business. Maybe less so than I wonder how Chrysler stays afloat.

I like some GM vehicles, loving a company is a silly thing.

The Aztec was fine until the bean counters got a hold of it. The funny thing though, is the people that bought them, liked them.

Agreed, being a fan boy doesn't help anyone.

The concept was great looking, but often concepts over promise, then the resulting production model under delivers.
