    Uggh. Those cars look eerily similar to several in the El Paso pick a part 8 - 10 years ago. Near impossible to sell much of anything - due to short window of availability, and logistics. The gold coupe would have been nice to have to fix up as a daily. But, have to imagine there is all sorts of nice stuff, under that white vinyl top. The grille is different than a '77 grille I had, a different model, or is it a '76?

    Yeah wow, I also like the non A/C and manual discs.I think the 4 door is a 76 and the Century is also 1976

    man, both of them waaaay too nice to be in junkyards, how does this even happen in 2021? I see absolute crap in and around ATL on CL and FB marketplace, with terrible rust, and folks think they have a 3 to 5 K car. Someone actually taking decent care of these to last 45 + years....
    yeah, the Century's had the waterfall grill, don't really know if anything else was different on them vs the more expensive Regals.

    Atlanta’s PAPs are full of crap like the background-red Grand Ams and a lot of GM 3.6 timing chain victims like the black Cadillac. (Plus every Audi A4 ever built).

    The Chev built 60 degree V-6 was weaker and less durable than the '89-'93 Buick 90 degree unit. Have not experienced 3.6 failings, that engine was also used in the Rendezvous SUV, correct?
