  • I wasn't looking for another car when I discovered the 1962 Starfire Convertible on Ebay in June of 2004. I couldn't resist it and, after corresponding with the owner several times, he agreed to end the auction early for a price on which we agreed. It was purchased on June 21, 2004. The previous owner had bought it in 1993 at a collector car auction in Seattle. He is not a car collector but had always wanted a 1962 Starfire Convertible because he graduated from high school in 1962 and it was "THE CAR" to have - 30 years later he was finally able to obtain one. When I asked him why he was selling it he replied "Every time I look at it I ask myself the same question". but then stated that he hardly drove it any more and thought it was time for someone else to enjoy the car (I certainly will). It arrived from California on July 8th via a special car carrier which holds up to six cars on two levels inside a covered trailer. The cars are loaded using hydraulically operated ramps. The Starfire has had a partial restoration which included paint, interior, and a new top in the early 1990s.
