Another HT4100 up in smoke?
Allante CC here
This could have had a Northstar, for all we know.
At least it’s passing you on the left this time… (c:
About 3 weeks ago, I saw a very nice red late 80s Cad Brougham on the back of a hook, but could not get a shot off in time. A CC premonition effect?
It could be a 4500 or Northstar if it’s from 1991.
Northstar was only offered on the 1993 models…
You can’t polish a turd but heres proof you can roll it in glitter
as Kellly Bundy exclaimed, “The Newww Allante!” She could sell me anything.
I am not defending the Allante by any stretch,but I know a few tow operators, and they seem to tow cars more for impoundments than actual breakdowns these days.
@Paul “Another HT4100 up in smoke?”
OK Paul. Your sarcasim doesn’t exactly translate to well in written form today. OK dudes,or peeps(for you guys born after this car left Turin/Detroit). This is a 25-20 YO car.(I’m assuming 88-92 as it lacks the Northstar emblem on the deck lid.) I’d say it’s doing better than your average DS even if it was an engine failure. Maybe transaxle? Maybe the Hall effect switch in the distributor? Wanna wager whatever it is that this particular car will soon be passing you on the mean streets of Eugene sometime soon? As in from the condition the driver took good care of it which means that sentimental value is worth more than Blue Book.
I have a very, very wealthy friend who bought one of these new. This view of the car is no different than the one of hers shortly after it was delivered. In the ensuing years she has owned many cars but only Japanese or German.
Poor thing… it’s wearing the same hideous rimzzz from the Sunbird that passed Paul on the right last week.
Turdz of a feather shop at Pep Boyzzzzzz 2gether.
I bet that’s part of the reason it’s on the hook, a clueless owner from the ‘hood who just bought it for the name and the fact it’s a coupe. Money spent on the rims and a sound system rather than work it needs under the hood.
Just keepin’ it real!!!
