A luxury motor!


New exhaust + battery, so basically nothing!

General Comments:

Probably the best car I will ever have owned, a real gem, all the gizmos in a really old car!

I prefer it to any car I've had since, company car forced sale otherwise I'm certain I'd still be driving it now.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

First, there was no such thing as Sierras in 1981; second, if it was such a good car, why wouldn't you buy another?

If it was that good then why the sad face?
