Buick Reatta Sports Coupe!
It's not a Miata, but it does rhyme with Miata. This is the 1990 Buick Reatta, similar to the Cadillac Allante but powered by the legendary Buick 3800 V6. Mechanically all the bits and pieces are standard off-the-rack GM, so they're reasonably cheap to maintain. Have the only one on your block! Heck, have the only one in your zip code! Only +/- 20,000 Reattas were built from 1988-1991...how many are left? It's one of the darlings of the Facebook Obscure Cars for Sale group, and a personal favorite of mine.
NEW BRAKES AND TIRES!!!
Only 135k Miles!
Flip up headlights! (So cool!)
16-way Power Seats with Extendable Lower Leg Support
Knight Rider-eqsue digital gauges!
Is it perfect? No. It's still an almost 30-year-old GM product. Is it maximum cool for minimum cash? I certainly think so.
Maybe I'm developing a lack of personal restraint at the auctions, or maybe I've just redoubled my commitment to BEING AWESOME 100% OF THE TIME - come drive it and decide for yourself!
