With the Miata down for the count and the Mustang too unreliable for me to risk driving once it’s fixed I needed cheap transportation fast. A coworker said she was selling a 98 Buick Riviera for $600 that is daily driven and runs great. Supercharged 3800? $600? Too good to be true!

I didn’t care about the paint. The interior was mint other than a well worn driver seat, and the engine ran great. Annoyingly it was a 97, so no supercharger, third gear slips “a bit”, and all four tires had “ plenty of tread” and were also dry rotted to shit. That’s gonna be a hard pass for me, but now I’m stuck in the awkward position of not having decent transportation. Damn.
