Beauty re-imagined. Merkin cars have such a finesse of spirit; a subtle marriage of form and function. It's a wonder they didn't export more of this Joie de vivre

You sure know your cars, here is a '87 Buick Regal which is the same platform as the Cutlass I just linked. This is a high mile, mediocre, poor condition GNX. A less than 1k mile one still in plastic with window sticker in place will break $75k. This is a completed auction and the unit sold for this as they do all day long.

That LeBaron did suck and so does this. To throw broad generalities around is not a show of intelligence. You should know better.

Lame, first gen was way cooler--I should know, I owned two of them.



With very few exceptions, Merkin cars are truly pathetic from an aesthetic, ergonomic, mechanical, technological, economical, practical, metaphysical, etc. perspective...and, I'm being a tad kind, here, just 'cause I like you.

A'yup, that's a big reason why I ended up with a graduate degree in sociology.
