I found a rare species of Finnish premium car buyer: The kind that didn't buy German.



300HP V6 and AWD, apparently. While researching that I realized it sits on the same platform as my Opel.

It's LHD. If that's a Vauxhall badge, then because the owner thought it to be cooler than the Opel badge the car came with.

None anymore...
Nope, they never did a Vauxhall variant of the Opel GT so it is an Opel GT. There are some Opel owners who change the badges to Vauxhall ones, but that doesn't make it a Vauxhall. ;)

In which case they are a deluded chav and if I have anything to do with it they will be the first against the wall when the revolution comes.

After the Marketing Division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation, obviously.

Is the Vauxhall badge somehow cool anywhere in this solar system? Because if not, you can just say that it's not cool anywhere and leave it at that. :p

It is a very rare sight in Europe and therefore special to non car people. I even spotted someone with a Holden badge once, those are really rare. Still a daft diesel Vectra though, but a free internet for you

Went to the Leake Car Auction in Dallas on Saturday with Nabster (it started Friday and ends today).



Here's the album.

Some highlights:

1472 original miles ( :sad: ) 2005 Ford GT


Went cheaper than we expected


'72 DeTomaso Pantera with 17,000 original miles




440-6 pack Cuda


Stunning 356


This poor murdered out Z8 did not hit reserve and did not sell


Plum Crazy Charger


Plum Crazy '70 Challenger with a 528 Hemi that lost all forward gears as they tried to get it up on the plinth.


Dennis Collins from Fast N' Loud's R32 Skyline. The Skyline didn't hit it's reserve at $35k :? He also had the sketchy C6 Z06 with a bonded title and Euro tail lights that did sell.


Bandit


Lovely early Bronco and '72 Chally


Buick T Type with a 4 linked Ford 9 out back


Lovely '69 F150 with a nicely done interior and reportedly putting down 385 to the wheels




'70 E Type Coupe


An amusing one, '69 Roadrunner with 190E Sportline seats






Fiat 600 wedged between a Monte Carlo Aeroback and a New Edge Mustang GT


340 Cuda


Toronado and early Gran Turismo with the terrible F1 box


'70 Suburban with a Weiand 6-71


Thomas' next car

2002 Ford F-250 with the 6.8L V10 engine - and over 500,000 miles on the original drivetrain. This has to be the best 6.8L I've ever seen; they normally had fatal problems long before this mileage - and the previous owner took good care of it, always had it dealer serviced. (thomas and I know this truck from earlier in the year, this has been sitting in the archives a while.)















Clean 250K 1993 Lincoln Town Car - still on original drivetrain.


Whatever they renamed the QX56 to and the Maserati AwfulUV:


Apparently the local Toyota club was busy this weekend. T100, recent Tacoma and a trailered, bedlinered customized first-gen 4Runner.
