Cliff, issue #379 your so-called “Ones That Got Away” section shows a Dec ’88 Buick GS455 Stage 1 Convertible. You valued it at $125,000 Australian dollars.

I have been a member of the GS Club of America since 1979 and through this source it has been reported cars being sold “off market” for over $250,000USD.

Recent sales and cars currently for sale in the US range from $150,000 to $200,000 US. Obviously these cars will cost more in Australia due to the exchange rate.

Con, every time we run a picture of a Buick or mention one we seem to kick the hornets nest. Values Cliff uses in Gotaways are not meant to represent the pinnacle of the market. They are very general estimates. They may get more, they may get less – it’s a “guide”. Not a bible. Love your passion and keeping us on our Fred Flinstones.
