Does anyone have some good pics of the Turbo Buick? That was a very classy little car and I loved the bulged hood. I wonder why they didn't send any to ASC to be convertibles?

...aaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnndddddddd once again it's economics.

Buick & Oldsmobile skewed older on demographic. Older buyers who want a convertible usually want something bigger or a true sports car, and those are the ones that can afford the true sports car.

Younger buyers in the 1980s who want a convertible are in the Pontiac and Chevy showrooms, and would never think of looking at the more expensive Buick or their "father's" Oldsmobile.

Not a bad car for the $500 to $800 range with no title and not running if was close to home.

I will just say no title makes me run far away.Unless you had alike car and switch the vin stuff to make it worthy or buy soley for parting it to save another.I say no more than 500 no title and just the things I saw in the pics of the issue's is clearly has a J known to us.
