got an 84 riviera i am unsure what to do with.

so ive had this car for a couple years now its an 84 Riviera all original old man owned 116k miles sat out in the country in a barn for about 8 years parked and i went out with the car trailer and brought it here straight from inside the barn.

ive been trying to sell it cheap or trade it for an old chevy truck beater running or not, or something, but have alot of tire kickers but nothing happens.
not worth taking to the shredder because its only 70 a ton for scrap now and the shredder is an 80 mile round trip from here.

and theres very few parts on it that are the same as other gm cars, just the steering box and wiper motor and rear drums and not much else. so thats much more incentive to junk it either.. hm,m..

ive owned probably closer to 250 cars trucks vans and other things over the years since 94 and stripped, cut up, scrapped many of them. you name it ive probably done it, so im pretyt jaded by vehicles at this point in life and still have lots of them from the 50's on up.. and i really only like the 67-up gm trucks in which i "grew up" on and have owned billions of also.

this ones got the 5A head 307 4bbl engine and 325L auto transaxle

will run with new plugs and if i get rid of the CCC q jet that overloads with fuel., have driven it a few times and it rides like a new caddy hmm..

but the driver side door is disassembled because it had a bad power window motor, and also the brakes are real spongy from sitting all this time. and so i dunno.,

i have found some interesting things out though in the time ive had the car. such as the front spindles are the same ones as on the early 80s 4x4 s-10 trucks haha

it seems these cars are not of any interest to ppl haha

i guess they didnt sell many for a reason

what would you do?

i dont wanna demo it because i dont have the time to prepare a car anyways, and im not gonna fix it up and drive it would take more money than i want to spend on a car, i am a truck person and not much interested in cars really, except old muscle ones of course

i guess it will have to sit longer until something happens some day haha

if i still have it then i guess i will put another carb on it and new plugs and hmm dunno.,
