Very rare, special model, Comet S-22 “barn find”. Original Low
Found it in SLC 8 years ago when my daughter was just turning 16. It only had 32,000 miles on it. It was a perfect car for High School. Now she is married and it’s time for someone else to enjoy it as much as we have.
Here are some details of this special car:
Runs great. Lots of thumbs up.
All original Vin and numbers matching.

Beautiful art deco dashboard and chrome
650 Watt Sony (sleeper smartphone) stereo

As compiler of this mayhem Tom Gregory notes, track days can be fun, but when they go wrong, they go badly wrong! Watch and wince, and remember this advice from a veteran racing mechanic to his driver: Remember that your right foot is connected to your checkbook. How fast can you afford to go?
Wouldn’t you really rather have a Buick? So asked GM’s marketing team in a series of TV commercials promoting the Buick lineup in the 1980s and ’90s. The Reatta was Buick’s 2-seat coupe (and later convertible) from that era, and it packaged smooth styling and advanced technology into a car that provided a lot of […]
