Seller must sell.

“Moving to Thailand, must sell my collection.
This is one of my favorites. Live at the beach and drive every day. This car attracts more attention than 100k cars that frequent the streets.
Buick V-6, power steering and automatic transmission make cruising a laid back art form.
Will miss this car much, it has been very dear to me. Give it a loving home. Low ballers save your breath!”
