In light of recent events, I found this on Craigslist. 1990 OCC good start, but a little heavy on the asking price.

More info in the e-Bay listing from January, when the current seller bought it.

I don't know if it's a red flag (although he is lying about being the second owner). Nothing else in the two descriptions appears contradictory.

I was not privy to any eBay listings. Good heads up tho. Someone should email him the link. I bet we will see "removed by seller" over night.

Haha, one thing I've noticed is that Mike is very good at digging up the info on stuff like this.  Laughing 

Quote :
"2 major problems I overlooked, car doesn't have an airbag which my wife sais is a must, secondly my son thinks the car is an Old Mans car.".

What the hell?  I'm not anti-airbag but obviously this is not a car that would be unsafe for being without one.  But secondly, and mostly of all, what a little shit that kid is!  He deserves to be slapped across the face with a cartoonishly large slimy trout, a gigantic rubber 'marital aid', one of those huge red plastic Wiffle Ball bats, or some other shockingly unexpected dopeslap-worthy item.

If someone offers you a free car, you'd better be on your hands and knees and thanking your lucky stars that it happened for God's sake.  Piece of shit.  That sort of insolence is reprehensible with being forced to drive a purple Suzuki X90 to school every day with a big sign that says "I am a pussy" emblazoned upon both side doors.  There is a Civic on craigslist that said something similar, some parent got a mid 00s Civic coupe, replaced the whole drivetrain and whatever else for who knows what reason, then the daughter decided she didn't want it.  Oh, ok, I guess he just needs to go talk to the manager and have her fill out a slip so they can get a refund then? I hate stupid people.

I just mean the quick flip without covering expenses means somethings up.
Whether they screwed up (son didnt want it..) or found something wrong with it.
Maybe red flag wasnt the right wording.

Same here. Sometimes having that info in your back pocket can be benificial

I think that 2 door has been posted off and on. The price is probably why. You can get the same damn thing in SoCal for $2500. $1000-$1200 shipping and you're still saving $ here.

The hell did this guy crash into, and was Fat Albert sitting in the back seat with no belt on when it happened?  

http://hartford.craigslist.org/pts/4168541487.html

That car could probably be fixed seeing that most of the impact was above the frame...it looks like the steering wheel is bent over and I don't know what the deal with the seats is though.  I need a nice driver's backrest...lol

Is the frame toast? Or is it drivable? Would make a nice winter rat.

And the crazy SS that used to be sitting in the driveway in Swampscott is back!

This car is currently on Essex St. in Saugus near the fire station in a driveway, been there a while.

I just read that, and I'm confused.......scratch

Why would you put in a 4L80 and a gear vendors overdrive?

Double overdrive so you can go 250 mph?

 I bet he's not the guy that put the car together. Suspect

Small mirrors and no a/c,. deal breaker right there,..

Gear vendors O/D units don't need a VSS signal,..
It.d make more sense if it was a T400.

It can't be. I used to work with the guy who was building it. The aluminum driveshaft that was in my SS came out of that car when he went to the turbo 400 and gear vendors unit. He was a cool guy, who LOVED that car, and was custom fabricating EVERYTHING himself in his garage. He was the IT guy in my office for Verizon at Cross Point in Lowell. When this car came up last ime, a couple years ago, I'd wondered what happened to him. Mike something... Hope he's alright.

Almost got it in april was denied because of the owner passing on his name was still in the title back then they wanted 2900 with the amount of faded paint and slight rust thought it might be worth it after all that time sitting and gathering more rust definitely not worth 3500 worst thing was it was non negotiable at 2900 feel it would be the same at 3500. Car looks ok I've seen a lot worse car is not bad but it is not mint everything works but in my opinion price is a little steep.

Yep thats the same one. I stopped in to look at it again-it's 2-3 blocks from my work. The title issue is fixed, car was stuck in probate. He's asking too much for it. Undersides are very clean, but some rust bubbles near the cladding edges-nothing horrible, but there. It's also a very base OCC. 305, 2:56, cloth, basic radio, manual passenger seat. But, interior is very clean too and only 90k on the clock. If it were about 1500 less it'd be in my driveway now. No way a base OCC is worth $3500

That limo was Bad Ass! Smile

I wouldn't drive it though. Maybe if I frequented Pats games or something, but I really have no desire to own a limo. Weird, I know.

I do, however, have a friend with a limo business that I will pass that gem along to. Smile

That's one of those "bring $800 to providence and enjoy a trip to the ER Stabbing Trauma unit" type of deals.

Believe it or not I had an exact situation almost happen like that.

Few years back my old lady's friends boyfriend told me there was a 91 caprice for sale in providence for $700 and he was gonna go look.
At the time I had no kids so me and my old lady jumped in the car with them and went down to providence. As we are getting close to the address I notice a grey 91 caprice idling in a parking lot a few blocks before the destination, we show up at the address, after dark and like 15 ppl come out of the house. No car there and they barely speak english. They avoided all questions on where the car was or who the owner was. Etc,
To me it seemed they thought this guy was coming alone with $700 cash and they planned to relieve him of said currencies.

Just a quick story to say that not all places/deals should be visited/made alone.

Indy is the last dude I'd try to jump. He doesn't look like the cubicle pushover type...

Gnomesayin?

But that's a good tip in all honesty.

Yup, I'm a big bastard, but you wont find me looking at any car on CL without being well armed, especially if I am going by myself, no matter what state laws I may break.

That is nice, if I was looking or one that'd be the one I'd probably get.
