No interest what so ever? The price is the generic craigslist price so if your interested you would get the club rate. So don't let that scare you away. The car really doesn't need a lot to make it a great little car. Plus a nice supercharged series 3 engine would fit and make it fly Wink

For those who didn't see the link. It's an '88 Olds Toronado Trofeo with the fe3 package and everything.

Basket handle shifter
Fully functional digi-dash that makes the Cappy dash look like a cvs brand calculator
Power leather buckets with side bolster and everything
Sunroof
A/C
Cruise
Power everything (except sunroof Laughing )
Alloy wheels
The price is well under $1,000 and it's available to test drive. Would make a nice beater car or as a first car for someone.

Here's a current link
Trofeo

And some pics

For all interested I'll break down the problems by category

Body:
Headlight covers are disconnected. They do work but are missing the screws for the rods
There's a patch on the lower quarter that isn't completely flush. It's only noticable if your changing tires or something like that
Power antenna doesn't work. The motor works but the antenna doesn't move
Brake light switch is dying. Ocasianally the brake lights will stick on

Interior:
Sunroof leaks. The original installer is a local company as per the installaition card in the glove box
Sunroof trim piece is broken
Seats have some rips
Aux tape deck doesn't work
Blower resistor doesn't work
Nuetral safety switch is shot. That effects the power locks and the twilight sentinal

Drivetrain:
Needs plugs/wires
Needs oil/filter
Needs serp belt
Needs a/c refilled
Needs coolant flushed
Possably hoses/vacuum lines Question

Overall it's not too bad off for a car with 180k miles that's over 20 years old. Most of the problems could be fixed in the span of a weekend if you really cared to put in the effort. She's just not happy with the car because she bought it for a much higher price about 6 months ago under the impression that it was a near mint car that could be show quality with some interior work. Then the list grew to what it is currently and she resents the car now. Plus she wants a b-body Laughing

The book value for the car once it gets the maintenence done to it is in the neighborhood of $2,000 which is what it's selling price was less then a year ago silent
