Partial Trades Considered

This car is owned by a car hoarder friend, and he is looking to gather cash. It means some of the cars have to go. This one in particular is great. It is wonderfully restored. I will let the pictures tell the story. I tried to photograph any visible flaws. It doesn't show to many. It drives great. Let me know if you need to know anything else. The miles are believed to be original. I will consider partial trades. 

It is located at 1234 Bay Road, Lake George, NY. 12845 That is the corner of Rt 149 and Bay Road, at my little red one room schoolhouse. I live just up the road. You can call me to make an appointment to see and drive. I am available nights and weekends. 518-378-8058

Following is the generic description of who I am and what we do. I ran the Boat-N-RV Outlet, a discount franchise of the Boat-N-RV family of Superstores. Our company has several locations up and down the East Coast. I have closed the capital district retail location, and we now sell on ebay and wholesale from our storage facility, located at 9497 Rt. 22, Granville, NY. We have several other storage locations in the area, so be sure to check where a piece is located before you show up to see it. In addition, we represent inventory in all our stores, including Tennessee, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and New York. Everything that we sell on eBay is as-is, except if I noted differently above. Just ask. If you require shipping overseas, please check on the prices as best you can from your end before involving me to assist you in the quote. We have very aggressive FINANCING on items 10 years old or newer, as our company does a significant volume of retail business (over 100 million US dollars) with our banks. I will absolutely consider ANYTHING IN TRADE, AND I MEAN IT. Don't be shy. Just be realistic about the value. We will use all our resources to ensure our evaluation is fair, and our resources are extensive. We have been doing this for a lot of years and will put a real number on absolutely anything, i.e. cars, trucks, boats, RV's, bikes, ATV's, power sports, heavy equipment, inventories, tools, collectibles, antiques, livestock, real estate, planes, trains, ANYTHING! I am not an expert in all that, but I'll know someone who is. I handle the eBay sales of specialty pieces, trade-ins, overstocks, leftovers, repos, demos, etc. . . from the organization, and I will deal personally with you throughout the transaction. I am proud of our feedback rating, selling and shipping mostly big ticket motor vehicle / recreational type items worldwide, some over A 1/2 million dollars. I would be glad to tell you why the only two unhappy customers I have had ended up that way. Customer # 1 purchased a used Class A motor home for less than 4000 dollars and got mad when it thru a belt on his way back to Connecticut. I was sorry. Customer # 2 purchased a Class A motor home for under 5000 dollars, wanted to work on it before driving back to Florida in it, and then changed his oil in our yard without using a pan. Boy was I mad. I should have had him arrested. We all learned lessons each time. My pledge is to make every attempt to do the right thing. You do the same and we will have a great transaction. The name is Geof (Jeff) Hoffman, and my cell phone is 518-378-8058. Call anytime to discuss anything relevant, including offers, pre-negotiating, and trade appraising. I will work my schedule to fit yours. We are always open and appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.

This Or That: 1980 Oldsmobile 442 vs. 1989 BMW 635CSi [w/poll]

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 12:45:00 EST

The last time I roped a coworker into an automotive debate, I lost. Resoundingly, I might add. Still, 2,385 voters chose to cast their lots for the Fiat 500 Abarth, as opposed to 5,273 choosing the Ford Fiesta ST, and so I can rest easy in the knowledge that at least 30 percent of you, dear readers, see things my way. I still like to think we have more fun, too.
My loss in the first round of our This or That series, in which two Autoblog editors pick sides on any given topic and then attempt to explain why the other is completely wrong, didn't stop me from picking another good-natured fight, this time with Senior Editor Seyth Miersma. Last time, our chosen sides were eerily similar in design, albeit quite different in actual execution. This time, our vehicular peculiarities couldn't seemingly fall any further from one another: A 1980 Oldsmobile 442 wouldn't seem to match up in comparison to a 1989 BMW 635CSi.
How did we come up with such disparate contenders? Simple, really. Seyth and I mutually agreed to choose a car that's currently for sale online. It had to be built and sold in the 1980s, and it had to be a coupe. The price cap was set at $10,000. The fruits of our searching labors will henceforth be disputed, with Seyth on the side of the Germans, and myself arguing in favor of the Rocket Olds. Am I setting myself up for another lopsided loss?

Ferrari FF pitted against Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser in crazy Generation Gap comparison

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 19:58:00 EST

The folks behind Generation Gap have lost their minds with this latest video. The goal here is to determine the ultimate family cruiser, but the choices are what you would least expect, with a heavily modded 1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser going up against a 2012 Ferrari FF.
You might anticipate an over-40-year-old Oldsmobile to pale in comparison to any modern Ferrari, but this wagon has a ton of secrets under its skin thanks to Lingenfelter. First, it packs a supercharged LS3 V8 with a claimed 650 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox. That big upgrade in power is further helped with air suspension and massive Wilwood disc brakes. The result is nothing short of deafening, with blaring yelps whenever the driver even nudges the accelerator.
The alternative sounds just as good, albeit in very different way. The Ferrari's 6.3-liter V12 pumps out 651 hp and 504 pound-feet with a part-time all-wheel drive system. While the FF lacks a lot of the hauling ability of the Olds, it makes up for the deficit in handling, luxury, and in many eyes, simply by having the famous prancing horse on the grille.

eBay Find of the Day: 1976 GMC Motorhome is a jolly green giant

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 18:01:00 EST

If you have a need to relive the 1970s, then here is the vehicle for you. This groovy blast from the past is a 1976 GMC Motorhome currently for auction in Florida on eBay Motors, and it is one green machine - just not in the modern sense.
The seller claims that this beast has had just two owners and has covered a mere 61,308 miles in its decades on the road. It's reportedly never been restored or repainted and comes with all of the necessary books and manuals. A 7.5-liter (455-cubic-inch) Oldsmobile V8 with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission powering the front wheels propels this far-out RV, and the double set of rear wheels out back use a self-leveling air suspension to provide a cushy ride.
The purported low miles and good condition really make this GMC a stand out, though. The exterior combination of lime stripes and beige with just a touch of green is like nothing else on the road today. Plus, the polished bumpers and wheels make it all pop. Inside, it's even better with monochromatic green upholstery and shag carpet. It features everything you'd ever need on a long trip, including a bathroom, kitchenette and lots of seating. The only hint of modernization is an HD TV next to the stove, but its size is a perfect fit for the hole there.
