It cant be good when i cant remember what # this one is.

It all started 2 weeks ago when i had a few Brougham parts on ebay. A guy in Norwalk CT emailed me asking if id be intrested in buying his "90 Brougham Delegace with tan cloth interior." I got right on that, as i want cloth delegance seats for my car. Its a tripple tan 90 from florida. and has light front end damage, from being at uhaul, and i guess while they were installing a hitch, it rolled off the ramp, out the door into the back of a u haul. Other wise it was sopose to be mint. Mint inside and out, 100k miles. No frame or radiatior support damage. Shinny paint, and he stressed on a like new interior. Beautiful car. So i got the idea of a fix it up and unload it.

I call him up, and since he doesnt have a digital camera he sent me a disposible camera with 28 shots of it. Got them developed, and it was a bit more rougher then i thought. but for 500 i thoguht it could be cleaned up.

So saturday AM i started the 3 hour trip down. I pull up to his house car trailer and all... and see the car right off.
Boy was i surprised/disapointed. the car was a ****ing LOAD. I ended up putting my upset face on and took it home for $200

As it turns out it had a smashed radiatior support, rust, faded paint, 73k miles more, and a completely dead battery. And that MINT interior consisted of cigarette burns and stains all over, It was bad. Guy was also a ligit child molester/45 year old fairy. Glad i brought my dad with me. his boyfriend came out and watched us load it on the trailer.

I have never heard someone say this before, but the pictures DO justice for the car, its alot worse in real life

Pros... it had a solid back bumper (no rot for you southern people who never expericned a rotted back bumper)
A brand new trailer hitch
A nice front bumper that is going to adorn my car
These cool pull straps on the roof that i have never seen before
and in the trunk was a new set of gold fender trim, which i have never seen before in my life, and would have looked like complete shit on this car.

Judging by the last owners, are you sure you'd want those seats it your car? lol.

I wouldn't even try to fix it up, just part it.

P.S. how's the steering wheel leather? It looks a little worn, is it sticky?
