I do marketing consignments for customers who don't have time to set up ads for their vehicle or don't use the internet. I charge a flat fee up front and do not collect any consignment fees when the vehicle sells. I am not a dealer. The vehicle remains in the owner's possession. I handle inquiries. When the potential buyer becomes serious, I put them in touch with the owner who can answer specific questions about the vehicle.
Note: This car is located in Embarrass MN
The Pick of the Day is rare because it has never been modified nor driven into the ground
Pick of the Day has been driven only 751 miles since it rolled out of the dealership’s showroom.
The Monte Carlo Intimidator Edition was a limited-edition trim package that celebrates the late NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt
Here’s a sleeper they’ll never see coming, a 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo that looks more like a disco-era bar crawler than a performance machine.
I was inspired for the Pick of the Day by the season-ending race for the 2016 Sprint Cup series, when Jimmie Johnson won his seventh championship.
On February 14th, 1972, I was turning 9 years old and living in Boulder City, Nevada.
The 1970s was the funkadelic decade when folks did the hustle in bell bottoms and drove around in “personal luxury coupes,” best exemplified by the Pick of the Day.
