About “WILDER Cherry!”

I was cruising eBay a couple of weeks ago and saw this car advertised at a Chevy agency about 100 miles from home. I showed it to my wife and asked if maybe we could go take a look at it over the weekend. Gypsy said, "Sure, but we're not buying it!" Saturday came and we headed north to check out the car. It hadn't sold on eBay and, being a leftover they wanted to move it. To make a long story short, they made me an offer I couldn't refuse! (I DID NOT PAY FULL STICKER!!!!!)

About “Darth Vader”

I've wanted one of these for a long time. Sure, I'm a Chevy man, but sometimes there are those special cars that you just KNOW you want, if and when the right one comes along at the right price. Well, last week, it happened. A customer at my shop happened to mention that a friend of his was selling an '86 Grand National, and asked if ! would ask around if anyone might be interested. I took the info on the car and thought it over for a couple of days..... Then I made a phone call and then Kate and I took the 2 hour drive to check the car out. As the pictures show, it turned out to be a great car. We discussed price, struck a deal, and came home with the newest addition to our garage - and one I don't have to do a damn thing to!

I know the power sunroof was an option, but I'm not sure of some of the other goodies like the digital dashboard, power seat, power windows, power locks, power antenna, electronic climate control, etc.

The car still has all the books with it, and it even has an emergency crank in case the sunroof motor goes out with the roof open!
