What's sad is people bought it, and didn't even really enjoy it. And now their dead.

Imo. I’d never buy an old car that’s been sitting like that. The motor probably seized up

Why would it be seized? Look at those junk yard shows. Cars in way worse conditions, fire right up.

I’m just saying I wouldn’t trust it. It’s bad for an engine if it hasn’t run in a long time.

Oh yeah, it's not good, but not seized. Might be good to hone out those cylinder walls beforehand, unless you want to be doing rings shortly after...

The story says the owner started it occasionally. I wouldnít worry about driving this thing after basic tune-up. Not that it matters, this car is just going to sit in a different garage

Not a single worry besides moisture in the oil and bad fuel.

Once they start driving it it'll start leaking, even more so if they put a modern oil in it. Probably will start to burn oil from valve seals

Would be ok for excersizing the seals, but chances are it never got hot enough to burn out the moisture in the oil. Inside of the motor are probably just surface rusted..

Wouldn't deter me though

It needs to be driven. Starting it and letting it just idle is bad for it too.

To each his own though. I’m sure the new owner is happy.

Pathetic. People bought this car and never truly enjoyed it. Iíd have a different opinion if it had 3-4 thousand miles on it.

The ebay auction:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1987-Buick-...pa-xCU&vxp=mtr



Obviously needs hood struts. It will also likely need a headliner and bumper fillers.
