Quote of the Day

This is the car that started my passion for classic cars. An old lady on my paper route had one and wanted it out of her driveway. I bought it for $300 when I was 12. I got it running and brought it home. My dad sold it one week later for $50 and bought beer."

AACA Winner: 1975 Buick Electra Limited 25K Mile Survivor – $15,250

For many years, Buick’s top-of-the-line Electra 225 was the car for people who “made it” but didn’t want to flaunt it by driving around in a Cadillac. By 1975, it also meant you were buying one of the longest two-door hardtops ever produced, and if you opted for the optional “Limited” package you had an understated Coupe DeVille. A 24,905 original mile time-capsule and AACA award-winning example is currently available on Craigslist in Westchester, New York illustrates just how long and luxurious...
NEW! Award 49: 1979 Volkswagen Scirocco – $15,000

Personal Luxury Two Doors may have dominated the sales charts of the late 1970s, but we would argue the growth of two-door hatchbacks during this period was a significant trend for consumers looking for something sportier to drive. A prime example was the first generation Volkswagen Scirroco and a great survivor is this Brazil Brown 64K original mile example currently listed on Craigslist in Newark, New Jersey. Unfortunately, the seller's optimistic asking price earns him our latest NEW! Award...
Blue Velour: 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V 29K Mile Survivor – NOW $17,000

September 30th Update – When we first featured this 29K original mile 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V Collector’s Series back in December 2019, the private seller indicated their car has just received a fresh vinyl top but claimed it was in need of paint. The asking price then was $7,500. Fast forward to this weekend when we came across this car again offered with a number of updated pictures and an asking now of $17,500. While the new post does not mention it, we’re fairly confident either...
Before You Buy, Make Sure You Get a PPI!
At GuysWithRides, we believe a pre-purchase inspection (“PPI”) is a mandatory part of buying a collector car. A great looking car on the internet will still have its flaws and that’s why you need to insist on a PPI before you buy. 

In his latest video, Rudy walks you through the PPI experience last week using GuysWithRides’ new partner, LemonSquad.com, to provide a detailed inspection on our project 1984 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Hardtop.
