Lookie-loo bait

Okay, we go with the questions again. How do you know about Bricklins? you even be able to identify one if you saw it?

I can say At least now I can. A couple of ago my answer would have no.

The Cadillac Classic

Up to this I still wasn’t sure this yellow car with the orange sign in the windshield Parked directly behind the vehicle was a Toyota pickup. The and who appeared to be his son were inspecting the car closely.

The dad looked fascinated (by the doors while the son, probably round driving age, hard to read.

I’m going to here for a moment. I’ve before that one of the few things I confident about is my ability to vehicles. I just need to see a few and its memorized. It’s not a unique many have it. Most

I always thought it fun in casual to ask someone what they the brand and model of a particular car was and have no idea. Or, more they’d play the odds and out some generic car name. For my personal favorite was when a Cadillac DeVille was identified as a “Classic”. She said she’d them on the road before not being a car junkie, never to pay attention to the details. So the model was “Classic”.

I pride myself on always able to identify a car; or day. For the most part, I’m aware of the makes and models of all the around me.

It was as the “safety sports car” prices ranging in the ball of $7,500 to $10,000.

The reason the two-seater was called the safety car is because of its safety-oriented design. The on safety could be seen everywhere. It had an integrated roll and bumpers that could a 5 mph impact.

Similar to the Corvette, one of its perceived its body panels are made of Unlike the Corvette, the SV-1 had doors. Moreover, those were power-operated by switches and The picture above left the exterior driver’s switch and The power-lift doors came on the the SV-1.

The Bricklin originally equipped with an AMC-sourced 360 V-8 that produced 220 HP. Later switched to a Ford-sourced 351 cubic-inch V-8 175 HP.

I don’t know the mileage on example but, being rare, and in relatively good I was shocked to see an asking price of $6,500. It isn’t in great but certainly not bad condition either. It awfully cheap for a piece of The asking price for the 2002 sitting next to it was $7,500 and the Mustang to the other side was

If you find the Bricklin interesting, out this really cool web Bricklin International Owners It even has a listing of the location of all remaining Bricklins. Sure there is one listed in the city I saw it.

To be clear, I do not know the person this vehicle and have no arrangement with them; if you are interested in purchasing this I have the contact information, so free to contact me.
