OK, kids, summer is around the corner, and you know what that means? Top-down weather, and cruising for babes! Or dudes. I don't judge.

What do we have today? Only the coolest American-made convertible of all time. Cruise Stone Mountain or the north Georgia mountains with the POWER top down, and tunes blasting. You'll get attention.

I bought this one-owner car from a friend many years ago for my son to have at college. He took care of it for years, but it turns out, he's just not a convertible guy. He's a comfortable Cadillac guy, so here we are. He drives his CTS-V like a grandma, and that's ok.

This baby has been sitting in the driveway for years, now, not getting the love it needs. It gets driven every week or so, so it's not just wasting away.

It always starts and runs perfectly. We haven't had a moments trouble from it in 12 years. It's been maintained diligently, and just works.

It is, however, in the way, and it's time for its third owner to take over, and fix its little issues that keep it from being perfect.

Issues? Yeah, it's 26 years old. You know any 26 year olds with no issues? My daughter is 26, and she has plenty.

Anyway, the carpet and upholstery could use a good cleaning. The top has a little hole in the back that lets a little water drip in if it rains. I needs a new driver's window switch, otherwise, all the windows work. The switch is $19.99 on Amazon.
The gas gauge works sometimes. Sometimes not. It's weird.
The hood and left fender paint has decided to peel and be weird. It's not horrible, but it's not pretty, either.

All in all, it's a decent little ride, that would be perfect for a high school kid, or someone who just wants something simple, plug-and-play, and ready to drive.
High school and college graduation is right around the corner...

It gets up and goes pretty good for a 6-banger, but you wont be winning any races.
The good side is you get 20mpg, and no more emissions testing anywhere!

Edmunds tells me $3,500 is average for this car, but like I said, it's not perfect.
Everything works as it should, including the convertible top, which is unusual for older cars.

It's not perfect, but it's nice, has a nice stereo, and I wouldn't hesitate to put my kid in it for a drive to St. Louis and back tomorrow. It's a nice little car that you won't have to put any money into it to enjoy.

$3,000 cash money, take it or leave it. I don't have to have it gone, I would just like the driveway space.
If no one buys it, I'll just give it to my nephew, the dropout. It'll be totaled inside a year. Don't do that to me.

Here be the rules:
No, I won't take your totally legitimate looking cashier's check. Cash only.
No, I won't trade you for 2 Charger rims, a bag of weed, and a pair of leaf blowers of questionable origin.
No, I won't ship it to your cousin in Germany in the "USA military army" for an extra grand. Stop with that shit.
If you ask me how much I'll really take, I'll add $50. Ask me "No, really, what's your bottom line?", and it's another $50.
I just don't care about the money.

This will be a nice, simple car, for a reasonable cost. I've been honest about its condition.


It could use some aesthetic TLC, but you can drive it to work or Miami tomorrow, and trust it to bring you home. We do.

If you'd like a fun little convertible for the summer and fall leaf watching, she's your gal.
Simple, reliable, airbag equipped for your peace of mind.

If this sounds reasonable to you, give me a call.
If not, then don't.

Peace.
