        Heck, considering the recent thread on the cost of radiators, you could buy it for a grand and get your money back from the brass!

            I got this email from Guido about the auction.


            Leonard,

            Perk, Tom Covington and I were at the auction. The car went for $1,500.00 to an internet bidder.

                Leonard, that little cream colored sporty coupe to the left of the GT has me way more curious than that rust bucket Hawk! I could not, for the life of me, place what that thing is! It has a definite Chrysler look about it, but I don't think we have many of those on the West Coast, with the T Bird portholes and all even has GT Hawk type wheelwell mouldings, WHAT the heck IS it? [?][?]

                    My guess is a Chrysler TC. Most commonly called the Maserati LeBaron.
                    Here is a link about them.Check out the cost when new.

                        Yes, that is exactly what that is.

                            The TC is quite an interesting and nice looking car (in my opinion). I have driven several of them, both when new and as used cars. There is too much cowl shake, even for a convertible. I think that I remember my 1987 Avanti as being more solid. What hurt the TC the most was that it was delayed almost to the introduction of the new LeBarons that looked similar for half the price. I know someone that owns three of those TCs. In the late '90s, when I was working full time at a Chrysler dealership, I tried to buy a one owner TC trade that a wholesaler came around with. The car was okay, but a little too dear to the wholesaler. We were about $1K apart. The porthole windows were bad. When I looked up my employee price for replacements, that cured me of TCs.
