Default Two sequentially #'d 87 GN's <1k miles unearthed

I'm thinking oil and transmission leaks, but still pretty interesting what people squirrel away and how they decide to maintain their treasures.

Honestly, I hate stuff like this. They're cars. They're supposed to be driven! Hopefully they will be with the new owner.

In this day and age everything is seen as a potential cash machine. Whether it actually is or not is another matter.

Someone was probably driving another one also. If you can afford to buy a pair of sequentially numbered cars to store away, you can afford to buy whatever you want to drive daily IMO.

An old friend of mine's family owned a Pontiac Dealership and he squirreled away 2 GNX's from the same year. Haven't seen him since the 90's but would bet he still has one (or maybe both) as he knew they'd become collector cars same day and said he'd be keeping at least one.
