Here's the article;

They Drive Old Beaters!

"I drive an '87 Buick Grand National," DAVID SPADE (in Malibu July 4) tells Us. "No one recognizes me! They expect me in a yellow Hummer. I have a nice house, so it's OK." What's his ride typically worth? Around $10,000 to $15,000.

Maybe he's conservative with his money. I wonder if he browses any of the sites...

I didn't read the article, but it sounds like whoever wrote it referred to the car as a beater, not Spade himself..

I like him for it. He recognizes how much fun it can be to daily drive one, and it wouldn't be the end of the world if something happened to it, because it isn't that valuable, comparitively....

If I had a ton of money I'd rip around in some "beater" fast cars, as well. Pick up a Syclone, 69 Camaro, stuff like that. Not that I wouldn't want expensive cars ( Can you say Z06, and M5?), but the 10 K musclecar market is so endless and exploitable, if you had lots of expendable income..... :yup:

Iva always thought that if i had a lot of cahs like that, id get a mint low mile GN and drive her every day....dont have that now of course, but definately would get something fun and "cheap" if i was that rich. Think about it, the best low mile GNs go for 30k, that almost nothing to some of those people.
