Daily Volume III (200) |Monday, September 13, 2021
Thank you for subscribing to the Daily Driver Newsletter. We start the week featuring classic rides from the Malaise Era (1972 - 1984) when automakers struggled to meet ever-increasing emissions, fuel economy, and safety regulations with then-available technology. In addition to today's features, you can see our past Malaise Monday "Classifinds" by clicking here and selecting the desired filters.
Switching To Three Newsletters Per Week

By far, the biggest reason we receive from fellow enthusiasts who unsubscribe from this Newsletter is "I get too many emails from you." That combined with our fast-growing auction offerings motivated us, at least for now, to scale back to distributing three emails each week.

Please note while we will continue posting Craigslist Classifinds based on our six daily themes, we will alternate weeks on which themes to feature for the newsletter. For example, this week we will publish Malaise Monday, Wagon Wednesday, and Free For All Friday newsletters while next week the focus will be on Truckin' Tuesday, Topless Thursday, and Sports Car Saturday.

So, if you like reading our latest classifinds every day, bookmark this page on your web browser. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as GuysWithRides continues to grow!

Meme of the Day
Our daily Craigslist "Classifinds" provide leads on rides we think you'll find interesting. We are not affiliated in any way with the sale of these rides - we just want to help them find a new home.

All of today's rides feature links to relevant videos!

Cloaked Chevy: 1975 Avanti II – $16,000

Why is this 1975 Avanti II continuation car featured as a Malaise Monday post? Simple. It exemplifies how the South Bend, Indiana builders of these made do with the power trains the Big Three were willing to sell them. In 1975, Avanti IIs came equipped with Chevrolet’s 400 cubic inch small block V8 mated to a GM Turbo 400...
Benched Beauty: 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix – $21,000

The car that wasn’t supposed to be. The 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix based on the second-generation John Z. DeLorean design. Pontiac originally scheduled an all-new third-generation for a 1972 model year launch to replace the second-generation model launched for 1969. However, a 67-day corporate-wide strike at GM in late 1970 delayed the company’s 1971 “B” and “C” full-size model introductions consequently then set back 1972 model production plans...

Swinger Sibling: 1972 Plymouth Scamp 16.6K Miles – $18,000

We wonder whether this 1972 Plymouth Scamp, with only a reported 16,600 original miles, is the lowest mileage example still in existence. Probably not, and even if someone were to lead us to lower-mileage Scamp, we believe the won we are featuring here would still win the “best detailed” award. With an under-dash-mounted FM converter and Cragar SS wheels appearing...
The Internet and Guys With Rides never forget history. Here are three examples of one of past Malaise Monday features that remain unsold.

56K Original Miles: 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V

Bidding ends Wednesday evening on this 56K original mile Lincoln Continental Mark V currently located in Willow Brook, PA. In addition to the ice-cold R12 charged air conditioning system, the original white leather is just as supple and clean as the day it left the factory. This car also features the $1,133 "Carriage Roof" which provides all of the look and maintenance of a convertible top with none of the fun.
29K Miles: 1983 Oldsmobile Toronado

We are preparing the auction listing for this stunning low-mileage Toronado to start Wednesday. We will have all of the pictures and flawless Lemon Squad pre-purchase inspection loaded later this morning.
The most notable feature of this Toronado is that it features the proven and virtually bullet-proof 307 cubic inch Rocket V8. We're also impressed by the car having its original bumper fillers.
