    What a beauty. Price is reasonable. I enjoyed mine and would buy one again.

    This would make a great replacement for The Ice Car. Too bad it's way out in Montana...

    $1600 very well optioned 1990 MGM LS.
    Turbines, ditch lights, premium sound with power antenna, ATC, leather wrapped steering wheel, cruise, ***Insta-Clear Windshield (***doesn't look like it has the actual windshield though, I could be wrong, and there was one in a local yard earlier this year '90 Colony Park ).

    https://butte.craigslist.org/cto/d/1...705350009.html

    Needs an ignition cylinder, odometer gears, and ATC sliders, but doesn't look like it needs much else.

    Here you go, homies. https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/...709584700.html I almost feel the need to save it. It's the body style i like, price isn't bad. On the plus side, somebody would probably steel the rims in like 2 days so i'd have no choice but to replace them. Stupid california...

    Nice whale, the main reason I would consider a whale is so I would stop running boxes into the ground (in my defense they were not in the best of shape when I bought them and JY or derby were their most likely fates).

    I wonder if that '82 TC has a hydraulic system? Looks good, and not an insane price either.

    It's getting to the time of year that I would want to park a car as nice as that '90 MGM. It's much nicer than my current rides. I wouldn't be able to do anything until late October/early November the way things are currently going. I'm just dreaming out loud at this point, lol.

    Embrace Krown or Fluid Film!

    We just had both trucks done and then I went & touched up areas they didn't hit too well. Seems to like the rusty Ford a lot, I feel good knowing they're both oily messes underneath haha. Beats rotten fuel & brake lines not to mention snapped spring perches, soft floor pans and such.

    Share your knowledge why...body style or mechanical fuckery?
    That interior looks pretty clean.

    It's mostly minor stuff others might not abide by but I prefer to buy the end years of any car as they work out more kinks, simplify things and later tech.

    In the case of a Mark VII, '90 - '92's got the updated dash, blade type light bulb connectors, more grounds to help with electrical demons these things have, driver's side air bag, LSC's got the BBS-like wheels- 16's over the previously used 15's IIRC, Bill Blasses 91 & up got the same bags as LSC's, so essentially an LSC with a digital dash. Stuff like that.

    I've got an '88

    Wasn't 86-87 that weird crossover year for stereo wiring? Not sure if the JBL equipped cars got common ground as well but that definitely is a plus about my '88: none of that BS to worry about or rewire. I do have an early style JBL amp. I think I checked with kishy's '84 and the connectors don't match with the silver football. So you can't easily upgrade to the JBL amp in one of the earlier cars like you can with the late '87-'89 cars.

    gotta find a buyer for the 06 and get my garage built.

    yea the stereo sucks, but i like the rear light panel better and the waffle grille...i also like the 86-87 interior better.

    Those woodgrain inserts do look better, walnut or what not. I never noticed the light panel?
