Olds surely missed an opportunity to capitalize on the convertible market with this car... years before the Sebring convertible would have debuted. I guess they figured they had the Cutlass Supreme convertible, why spend the engineering dollars on this platform? Well, they were wrong and we could have benefited from this car being available as a factory convertible.

So Ninety-Eight, you going to call the owner and make an offer???

That bodystyle was meant for a convertible. It doesn't even look like a convertible, more like a Chris Craft on wheels. So elegant. So beautiful. Why can't it be 1/4 that price?

Awesome! :blink:

This part sucks though: "There also was a fake tire carrier on the back of the car which was taken off and is included."

Should be fairly easy to dispose of on E-bay... and it looks as if no Toronados were harmed in the process.

This goes back to that whole 1991-1996 B- Body thing. GM just either did not get it, or see their potential back then. They walked away from this market and segment too. There are others still building in this segment. This car would have been a hit in this form. GM still does not have any personal luxury coupes. Am I going to call this guy? No, I am not..... Nice car though. Very nice indeed.

GM eroded themselves. They became truck heavy. This is changing. GM does have holes in its line up.
