Not So Lost Cars of the 1980s

The always interesting Hemmings Daily blog runs a regular feature titled as Lost Cars of the 1980s. Usually, it talks about at least somewhat unloved cars like the Cadillac Cimarron. This week, one of the cars written about was the 1987 Buick GNX. Many comments on the blog post mentioned that the GNX wasn’t really lost—that it was much loved and that the prices were holding up just fine, thank you.
