Hoarding Chevy SS’s?

 

As new 2017 Chevrolet SS models vanish from Chevy dealerships, and there will be no more (only imported from Australia 2014-2018) CarMax appears to be scarfing up the used ones. Normally 10-15 units nationwide, this week inventory jumped to 24 models. Love this car and it’s beefy V8. Will be a rare collector car soon!

Uber Unicorns Choices – Two Dozen Great CarMax Lyfts for $20,000 …..or So

If I needed a decent, unusual, reliable, or unreliable but cool car with a great warranty to go into business for über or Lyft, I would choose from this batch.   Welcome thoughts.

Land Rover and Jaguar XF
Big and Rich.  Your pickups will feel like celebrities in these V8 powered classy cars from the UK.
Mercedes
A pair of Mercedes – the E350 at $16k and it will last forever – S550 is pricey but oh so luxurious!
Audi and S550 72000 mi
White Knights – A pair of 72,000 mile German sedans – V6 and V8 powered.  
STS Town Car
Something more traditional? Big American sedans at a bargain price.
Marquis and Crown Vic - Bench Seats
Grandpa Uber – Big ol’ bench seat sedans! – Marquis and Crown Vic cousins.
Slow but Smart Impala Choices
Slow, but Impalas nonetheless.  The LT looks cop car.  The LS really well equipped (but a 4 cyl!)
Uber XL - SUV
Back to Big – A pair of XL’s.  The Hummer would be the baddest über ever.
Toyotas Big and Small
Toyotas Big and Small – Owned an Avalon once and loved it.  The Matrix makes sense.
Low Mileage - Regal and 300
Stupid low miles – beautiful baby Buick and a cheap Chrysler with a little 6 cylinder.
Sensible - Honda Accord and S80
Sensible Cars – a Volvo and Honda good for another 150,000 miles!
Acura TL and Genesis
Oddballs – Nobody knows what an RL is (they’re nice) or that Genesis’ are so luxurious.
Cooper and Sable
The cutest, a Mini, and the mysterious, a Mercury for $11k and less than 4,000 miles a year!

Here’s the short version – the details are in the pages above.  I was surprised to find that CarMax carries real driver’s cars, enthusiast’s cars, and has them at decent (for me) prices, with reasonable mileage, and offers spectacular extended bumper-to-bumper warranties that makes owning these cars affordable.  I call them “CarMax Unicorns”.  I am not affiliated in any way with CarMax and I suspect I’m one of their worst customers.
