Tempting

Recommended Posts

This is the one I would go with. Of course, it needs quite a bit of work.

These two would be a lot of fun, especially for the money.

That's the great thing about high fuel prices, it's making collector cars cheaper and more plentiful.

Last week, in passing, the girl mentioned how nice it would be to have a backup car since her car needs a little work. Well, she didn't have to tell me twice! She likes the big blue Caddy and looks forward to it being spiffed up a little bit as much as I do! So you can blame her (sort of) on this one :thumbsup:

On some collector cars, yes...but I was at a Car show this AM and a woman there turned down 90K for a 67 Camaro SS-350 ragtop...

Some of the less desireables are going down, but the primo p-ieces are still bringing big bucks...

You all trust Craiglist? After the stories I hear about stolen property being sold there? No way.

What's wrong with craigslist if you use a little common sense? If you want to buy a car, make sure you see a title. As long as you're not helping any Nigerian princes to get their inheritance into this country, you should be fine.

Now..... here's a Ford I would be proud to own:

How cool would it be to blast through the woods in this thing?!

No craigslist?

Ohh.... I see, you'd rather buy a car on eBay only to show up with a car

trailer and *surprise* that ONE 1/4 panel that was not in the photos has

a dent the size & shape of a fire hydrant in it, or *runs & drives* means

"it ran & drove fine before I parked it under that Oak tree in 1993"

Or... you can always go to a dealership and get robbed blind by some

shmuck with a auction license, cause that cardboard business permit on

his wall hanging next to a pinup calendar from 1988 means he would

NEVER screw you.... right? :P

Craigslist is where it's AT! (and locally the WantAd magazine)

Sure you'll have to invest some time and might get a few wackos but

nothing in life is easy. There's a local used car dealership selling an

exact clone of Julie's 500SEC, similar milage (ugly colors though) and

it's not the cooler Gray-import... guy wants FOUR times what we paid.

---- PS that 1943 APC is sick! I'd love to

have that even if I never got it running.

Craigslist is great. That's where we got our Mercury from.

What Mercury? Didn't know you guys had a Mercury...

The shocking part.... it's RWD, BOF and V8 powered!

DF's mom bought a mid 1990 Grand Marquis in tan

with a padded cholocate roof after her minivan was

totalled. I got a ride in it the other day, I guess it's

been a good purchase so far, only major flaaw is the

power windows all have something wrong with them,

one has a broken regulator, the other one has a

fried motor, etc.... ahould not be too hard of a fix.
