Not sure if it was built in Oshawa...


...but it IS a Parisienne!

1985 Pontiac Parisienne | Raleigh Classic Car Auctions

Pontiac dumped all their C-bodies a couple of years prior, but the Canadian models continued till the RWD platform went away in '86.  I'm pretty sure that the half-hearted effort to get back in the full-size game, no doubt under tremendous pressure from their dealer network, led to bringing Canadian-built Parisiennes Stateside around this time.  Hard to believe something 36 years old has only 5K on it.

Even harder to believe I wasn't yet 36 when it was built. :(

And, here's another one, in the same auction:

Current Lots | Raleigh Classic Car Auctions

This is an outgrowth of the former Kruse Auctions house that RM, from Chatham, acquired ten or more years ago.  They tend to concentrate on low-mileage, as-built cars, eschewing restomods and exotics.  Not sure if I'll be making the trek down, we have our own GAA coming up in two weeks, and the Raleigh one is a good hour-and-a-half each way.  Last time I went to one, I ended up coming home with something I didn't REALLY need.
