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?

GM recalling 8.4M cars, 8.2M related to ignition problems

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 15:30:00 EST

General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.

Jay Leno bangs up his own Toronado in GT6

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 12:33:00 EST

Ever since Gran Turismo 4, Jay Leno has had at least one of his cars included in the popular racing simulator (starting with the Tank Car), and more of his machines appears in Gran Turismo 6. They include this nose-heavy, front-wheel-drive V8-powered muscle car. Yes, that aptly describes a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado - except Leno's is rear-wheel drive. And it has a Cadillac CTS-V race engine modified to pump out 1,070 horsepower.
For the latest Jay Leno's Garage episode, he takes his real Toronado out for a cruise and then drives the virtual one like he stole it, accruing some body damage along the way. Leno also drives the virtual supercar Mercedes-Benz designed for GT6, the AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept that debuted at the LA Auto Show, along with the real one, which is a 1:1-scale model. The model is radio-controlled and equipped with a small electric motor, sufficient to move it on and off of auto show floors.
Head below to watch the episode, which includes a few words from GT6 creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
