  1. I don't think I've EVER seen one of these... 36K and a full repaint with a clean title? Hmmm...

    1. These are known for rock chips. The bumper and the bottom of the doors and fenders just get chipped to death. I almost bought one of these back in 2002, the car had 15K miles and looked like it had competed in a season of WRC.

  2. "total loss reported" according to free carfax link on selling dealer's website.

    1. Haha what a joke! Almost as bad as the wheels.

  3. Dealer universe much like Trump's....we don't need no stinking truth!

  4. Wow. it looks just like a Jaguar XKE!

    Well, except for the body, interior and mechanicals.

  5. "mint condition with new paint"
    I like these, but this one sounds like trouble.
    "all over done by a professional"
    They will do that from time to time.

  6. I have a personal policy where I deduct 10% from my offered price for every example of butchered spelling the erstwhile trustworthy seller allows their ware to be represented by.

    1. You must have to offer near-negative figures for most cars on Craigslist.

      Seller's ad: "Four sell, 1995 Camero. Grate car. Excelant conditions. Ate cilinder motor. Good breaks. Tires have good thread. Manuel transmittion, new cluch. Past smog test."

      Doctordel: "Give me $400 and I'll take the car."

  7. doctordel...

    I'm assuming your run on sentence about misspellings is part of the joke.

    But did you just end your post with a preposition?

    (...coughing up a hair ball...)
