    No idea about the back story on this one. Have not had a chance to talk to the owner yet. He doesn’t come into store, the salesmen go out to him due to covid.

    This one’s for @oldretiredafguy, he’s got a few dozen GMCs on his Texas spread.

    Kinda reminds me of a Civil Service vehicle. I know they used International 4x4 panel trucks.

    Looks like.. Tow/pit/push rig for a belly tanker running the salt flats.
    Let me know how far I'm off.

    One I saw today - I asked them if they needed any help, although I was not in Goldie.

    Heater bypass hose had popped, but he said he had got it, and was topping off the radiator.

    Anyhoo, you don't see that many with the roof off.

    First generation cavalier. In chalky smurf blue. Rarely got any respect and usually beat to hell. This one didn't look to bad at 20+ ft considering the last one I saw you could shake hands through the holes in the body.

    That is a Chevette based Leata Cabalero. They only made 97 of them (thank God). Interestingly, the pickup used squarebody taillights.

    Jeez, that’s rare. I drove by there a few days ago, and it was gone as far as I could tell. From what I can tell, these are Yugo-level awful.

    I wouldn't say that, a friend bought a 1976 back in 1991 for $50, drove it on his mail route for 10 years and then sold it to his best friend that still drives it to this day. Fugger probably has half a million miles on it by now and probably rusty as hell.

    As if Cavaliers weren’t top of the list as GMs schittyest cars, the next post below it has a chevette. And not just any chevette, but with a body kit!
    Thank god I wasn’t eating breakfast while viewing these pics! Lol.
    Chevette, citation, cavalier....GMs darkest days!
    Thank god their 80s pickups carried over largely from the early 70s when cars and trucks were bad ass, save for a bad case of anemia, or I’m sure they would be Only good for soup cans made from recycled steel!

    BTW. Not a dig on the pics just memories of how awful the new cars were when I was a kid.

    Gotta say that I owned two 2nd gen Cavaliers.
    Both were '01 if I remember right. A four door LS with a 4 speed auto tranny. That was night and day better than the standard 3 spd auto version. Fugger had a noisy lifter from brand new and the dealer changed the cam twice in it. Ran great though. Sold it with 150k on the clock.

    Second one was a Z24 with a 5 speed manual. Surprisingly quick and a hoot to drive. I taught my wife and both daughters how to drive a manual with that car. Our one and only lease vehicle. We put way too many miles on for a lease.
