Two GTV6s In Their "Teens" In One Week!
So, it was bizarre enough to see the chock-brown sub-16K mile ' 86 on fleaBay trade for so low last week - potential bushing and timing belt service not withstanding; it has under 16K miles on it and appears to be in perfect condition...!
It blows me away - what with 12-13-14K USD examples with 4-5-6 times the miles trading in the past year or so. Nice as those were, here was an ' 86 with 15,XXX miles on it, selling for under 11K!
Then, just as I pick my jaw up off of the floor, along comes a mystery member here last night and drops off his newest purchase; a silver ' 84 with black leather and 18K original miles on the odo! UNBELIEVABLE - like a time-capsule!
The thing is BRAND NEW - it looks like it just came off of the showroom floor!
Every switch, every dial - everything works and it is all brand new! The leather is brand new and soft - the door seals and rubbers aren't all shrunk or any of that - the steering-wheel is untouched! All of the trim is dark, bright, black and chrome and unblemished...
It smells BRAND NEW inside! What a pleasure to see (and touch.)
I won't divulge the price or the member's name unless he pops up - it is not my place - but how weird is it to see two of these cars with miles in their teens come up for air in the same week!?
