Now what in the world could this be?
My response to that question has always been no. If I have a car that drives people to leave me that note, it’s a car I like or love enough to want to keep.
+1 I feel the same way you do. I never get notes but I have had several people ask me what amount I want to sell one of my old cars or what they are worth. I always tell them they are not for sale period. Some things just aren’t.
One thing that irritates me, though, is when people ask me what I paid for one of them.
On the other hand if they offered me enough money that I could get something else I’d like then maybe. Most often they just low ball you.
I would say it is a 1980s-current car based on the dashboard and windshield wiper mechanism. Never had that note left under my wiper, but I have had people ask me and in Los Angeles our Federal Government plated vehicle got business cards under the wiper for scrap metal among other services somewhat often.
If only we could scrap our federal government instead of the vehicles it owns. It does have some good vehicles.
Nah, Anarchy sucks.
I’m going to say that it’s an ’84 Caprice Classic. Has wipers that appear to park behind the edge of the hood, and that speaker grille looks pretty GMmy to me.
I agree, a 1980s Caprice or Impala
On a second thought, it’s probably a FWD Cadillac DeVille/Fleetwood from the eighties or early nineties. What I first thought was a line on the dashboard is a reflection of electrical wiring in the windshield.
Blue medium point Sharpie 😉
That is a love letter from a woman who knows you are a car nut. She is very clever using the car angle to get you to call her. If you aren’t careful, she’ll have that car for nothing and half of everything else you own.
A 1962 Ford Fairlane with a dented hood.
Clickity style Ansco. I always have a few pieces left over when I install one.
Outta left field: early 80s Ford; maybe a ‘stang.
I used to get a lot of those on my 55 Chevy Convertible….That’s definitely not a 55 Chevy.
I am going to guess 78-87 El Camino.
It looks like a piece of paper to me.
The dash grill looks almost… Chryslerish to me?
’77 to ’90 Cadillac rear wheel drive Deville/Fleetwood/Brougham yellow in color.
Judging by the vent cover… A Buick of some sort,
or a GM car, definitely.
What’s bad is when the note says “We buy junk cars”!!
Tough one. I’ll guess Cutlass Ciera.
I bought my current car this way, I posted a similar note when I saw it at a meeting of US car enthusiasts. ouple of months later, the owner called me and we did business..
If it was Tom who left the note, it’s probably a luxo barge of some sort. Big Lincoln maybe.
