So Sad
« on: December 11, 2012, 10:09:32 PM »
I was perusing ebay (again! lol) and came upon a horrific sight! Somebody in Washington State is parting out a rare 1974 (I'm guessing Canadian) Bobcat Runabout. It has a '76 grille and Bobcat emblems on both fenders and hatch. I couldn't believe it! I guess the poor thing's a rust bucket, or they're trying to make a few bucks at the car's expense. It was (still really is) a beauty, and it's a shame it's not being saved. How rare are the first Bobcats ?  I understand Canada had Bobcats as early as the '74 model year.

Looks a little rusty 'round the seams, but *$@# check out that interior! I'd like to have the whole car for sure!

If it's that green one he's been selling parts off it for about a year now. He wants drug money for most of it.

Ok it's item # 230895103089 Hood Latch Assembly. I found it on plain ebay (as opposed to ebay motors). Sorry I don't know how to do links on to here.  :-\
