  1. This is an incredibly unhelpful ad. Someone that knows about these cars would be needed to know whether to buy it or run away.

    "Few months ago I took it to the mechanic I spent on the car 2k they done some work on transmission (2nd and 4th gears were missing),new power steering pump and filter ,new transmission and engine mounts ,new battery ,new air and oil filters ,new belts ,etc..odometer on 118xxx not operate(I guess it been stuck for a while)
    The car still needs a lot work for be on top condition,but drive able and runs well."

  2. I would run away.......they did a phenomenal job of avoiding any photos of the usual rust spots (jack points, rocker seams, rear valance corners), and the one shot they did show of the tire well means there's usually a lot more where that came from.

    Additionally, and if this makes me elitist, so be it, I've found some strong correlation between the care a car has received and the quality of the grammar in the ad.

  3. Looks like an ESL ad; if it was in his (or her?) native tongue it might be written better. This is interesting for the price - may have to keep an eye on it. - love to bring it to a dry state here and turn it back into a daily or occasional driver. Always missed my '85 fiver.
