The Good Old Days. I remember I looked hard at a 1964 BUICK WILDCAT, loaded. $3,400. Didn't buy it, bought a 1964 FORD Galaxie 500, loaded, $2600. I really liked the Buick but in 1964 $800 was a lot of money.
["I remember I looked hard at a 1964 BUICK WILDCAT, loaded."]
My parents had a '64 Wildcat, bought it used in '66, don't know what the new selling price was.
Really liked the looks of the '64 Galaxie 500 fastback, especially green with black vinyl top, but unless it had the 427 the Buick would have been quicker.
So much for the good ol days. LOL
I bought a Cadillac ATS Performance Edition this afternoon - ta da. Eat your frickin' heart out buddy boy. Loved my Grand Prix GXP, so does the dealer. So the dealer owns it now. Fabulous warranty and free service, etc. Gotta work tomorrow (yuck) so Wednesday I learn how to use CUE and set everything up. Love the navigation system. CUE is Apple based which matches my iPad and iPhone5. Great terms thru Bank of America. Pays to deal the last day of the month.
My very first Cadillac.
One of the guys at work bought my Grand Prix about an hour ago from the dealer. How's that for a quick turn for a dealer? 2 days. He got a good deal with a 24 month extended warranty and an excellent interest rate, just as I did. I held onto the tire warranty papers because my name and address is on them. But I'll give them to my friend. Nice things can happen with dealer's.
The self serving DUHtroit dolts on this board think everyone is obligated to buy their overpriced inferior products. They will spin and lie, fleece and cheat the America people for their selfish interests - end of story.
Yes, I remember the good old days. When GM,F and C were truly the big three. Everyone that wanted a job had one. There was a balanced budget with lots of surplus. No deficits or fiscal cliffs. The only persons on welfare deserved it. It was illegal to trade with China! All of our consumer goods were made in the USA. And then the Asian invasion started, and the foolish buyers flocked to them. If it the manufacturer ends in a vowel it is probably bad for the US. Yes, the good old days! Bowties forever!!
hey state I remember when Ford Mahwah,N.J. auto plant was the largest plant in the world,they also had BAD QUALITY,when the Arab Oil embargo's came in the 70's,because GM-Ford_chrysler,didn't have the MPG cars,they let the door wide open! I remember my father buying his forst forgein car,VW beetle,then Nissan's,never looked back,i've been a toyota guy ever since,i remember the import fighters,the Pinto? remember that? AMC Gremlin? Gas engines turned to Diesel?Law suit city, My friends father worked at a GM plant in Tarrytown,NY, bought the Diesel cal, and even he sued,GM over that, I can go on and on........... what they don't realize is they lost a whole generation of new buyers!
They lost me a long time ago,my neighbor bought a over priced Malibu,2 years ago,man talk about depreciation,wowowowowowowo,what ever,
Um. Let's finish living in the past. 30 years ago? The Vega was now 40 years ago. You seriously need to live in the present. The new Cadillac ATS now leads it's class ahead of the BMW 3 series. Apparently you don't read very much. Is FoxNews your only source?
How ironic. I had no idea/intention of buying an ATS the next day after I wrote my previous post. BTW I had a little Vega Kammback with zero options. It really wasn't a bad little car and I had no significant issues. I did upgrade the cooling system so Sears could install an a/c unit. It didn't rust out or fall apart on me. Looking back at some pictures, it was quite nice looking in metallic green with black interior. I upgraded the wheels so I could run A60-13 Firestone tires - sorta made it look like a little green skate board - LOL.

Hmmm....never heard you say that to jeyedolt when he brings up Pearl Harbor or GM's contributions to the WWII effort (of course, even HE doesn't mention GM's overseas plants building trucks for the entire German Army).
Sentiment: Strong Sell

The good ole days was when a Chevrolet was a car for the middle class. I just checked the price for a cheap Chevrolet Impala. I couldn't believe starting MSRP was above 30k and went to 40k.
GM is way overpriced.
I bought a comparable foreign car for 25% less. What I started out looking at was Buicks, but starting priced . . . .
