Will know in another month if I will be the proud owner of another P-car... a 1999 Boxster SP-B spec race car.
Wave if you ever see the AT&T van hanging out in the field near the front gate at Roebling. It's me (on my lunch hour)....

Pretty fast. Never have run it except one time at drag strip when it was all stock. Its supercharged and nitrox but I have never checked it out. I do know its a lot of power.

No, by 1985, the EPA had been cracking on all the manufacturers and there were a LOT of gutless wonders being produced. It has the late edition (earlier versions had some issues) of the HT-4100 motor V8. The EPA mandate is one of the reasons you'll find so very few truly collectible cars from the mid-to-late 80's. '85 was the last year they produced these big Caddy coupes, the last of an era. In '86, they downsized the entire Caddy line. But in '85, they shared this same basic platform with the Olds Toronado and the Buick Riveria.

It's not woefully underpowered, but it's nothing like putting your foot to the floor in the older '70s Caddys with the huge V8s. On the bright side, it consistently averages 22-23 mpg, which was pretty unheard of for Caddys, ever.

There's a car that I've always wanted and have been watching several over the past few months via auctions/ebay etc. They are getting harder and harder to find and are commanding TOP dollar. I'm looking to spend a few years doing a complete resto-mod on it. Probably one of the sleekest cars out of the early 70's - a Buick Riviera boat tail. "Dulcy predict" that these are going to continue to skyrocket in value! If you can find one in fairly good shape, buy it!

The old Riveria's and Toronado's were just rolling works of art in my opinion. My dad had a 60's version Toronado (I think a 69) that was front wheel drive. I remember as a kid that the speedo was like a drum that spun to show your speed. I seen one of these older Riviera's at a car show and I asked if the owner wanted to sell it. It had been completely restored and he said he would never sell it. I asked him what a crazy number was that he would sell it.....he said a million bucks! NO SALE!

This is the only "fun" car I have ever owned. I ordered it from GM in 2008 and got it on June 17, 2009. I had only seen 1 new Camaro on the road prior to getting mine. The attention from people was cool but it got annoying after a while. The first year I had it I couldn't stop anywhere that people didn't want to ask me questions. Many times I would come out to the car and there would be a small crowd of people standing around it.

Now there are so many on the road that they aren't special any more. This one is special to me because all of the customizing that has been done are all my ideas. Everyone in the family are huge Steeler fans so I had to do a black and gold theme. I fell in love with the Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am in black and gold so that was another reason I went with the black and gold color combo.
