Topic: eBay Finds of the Week, 12/15: Rad Era!
Phew, have had a couple of crazy weeks, but I'm back with some super 1980s and 1990s machines on eBay right now!
Winner, Winner - 1979 Buick Starfire Firenza - 305, automatic, crusty...the only one of the Monza quartet we haven't had in Lemons. LOOK AT THAT PAINT JOB. Slap a number on it and bring this MoFo. Yeah, yeah...it's a 1979, but these lasted easily until at least 1982 on the road.
1989 Citroen CX Prestige - Already on a trailer, so obviously can't be too bad, amirite? This is an IOE leader already. Must be hydropneumatic suspension, but I know absolutely nothing else about these.

1983 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit - Four words sum it better than I can: Theft Recovery Rolls Royce. Boom. Do it.

1981 Checker - Yep. 1981, you read that right. The 1983 Checker was supposed to be Citation-based...wonder why that didn't work. Anyway, the V8 in this is possibly a Chevy 267, maybe a 305. Either way, extremely effluent.
1981 Firebird - Speaking of 1981, this was also the end of the second-gen F-Body. Buick 231 with an automatic. This thing probably has about as much WHP as a 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage. It also can be found in its natural environment where you'll pick it up.

1988 Pontiac Fiero - THE GOOD YEAR OF THE FIERO WHEN THEY GOT IT ALL RIGHT AND THE BEAN COUNTERS MURDERED WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE BEST GM PRODUCT OF ALL TIME. Still an Iron Duke.

1993 Ford Probe GT - V6 with a stick and a flame job! It was clearly the seller's baby and the seller seems desperate for it not to go to scrap...Lemons is better, right?
1995 Eclipse GST - Was this a direct competitor of the Probe GT? I feel like it probably was. People remember the Eclipse as being a better car, but I really, really don't think that's the case. Maybe prove me wrong.

Toyota Paseo w/stick - You know what had 80 fewer horsepower and will probably round kick the ass of both the Eclipse and the Probe? Yep, this thing. I don't know why there aren't more Paseos in Lemons. They're not remotely exciting—it's the sporty Tercel!—but they have four moving parts and Toyota built all of them so they just effing work.

1977 Datsun 720 - Again, not an 1980s vehicle, but the Sunkist paint scheme is straight 1985. I don't care if you race this, this thing is cool as hell and someone in this community should own it.
