    I am also amazed at the number of people who have difficulty fitting the car into the frame.
    Then there are the ones who post ads with no picture at all. Why bother?

    I am tempted to pick it up, replace the fillers, sand and touch up the rust and turn it around for $5k.

    What really bothers me about this is 20 years ago it would be understandable. We had to take photos, get them developed, then see what we had and try again. With digital cameras and phones, you can shoot a hundred pics and delete all but the best. Why is that so hard!

    I agree, it's inexcusable. At least the gravel lot pictures of the '76 are clear, well lighted and in focus. Spending an extra 5 minutes would have really benefited him though.

    This is really nice. I wish it didn't have the air suspension or the "TV on each door", then the price could probably come down, but the fact that the HT4100 has been replaced with an Olds 307 and "DUEL EXHAUST" almost makes up for it.

    Too bad I just spent all my savings.

    Poor car....if it wasn't for the mods, it would be a sweet car. I bet the 307 was put in a long time ago. Not sure what "duel exhaust" is though?

    The bags I could live with if done well, but I shudder to think of the butchery done on the beautiful interior.

    I feel mad and sad at the same time.

    Perhaps the exhaust is preparing to duel with the owner....

    Had to decide if this should go in the FWD or RWD forum........flipped a coin and this thread lost.

    I don't think he is actually trying to sell it. Probably a case of:

    Wife: You need to sell that old car taking up space in the garage
    Guy: But honey its paid for and runs great
    Wife: You rarely even drive it
    Guy: Because its a collector's car dear
    Wife: Yea right like people even want those cars these days
    Guy: Well actually...
    Wife: Just sell it so I can park my Camry in there
    Guy: Yes dear I'll post it for sale right now

    I hope someone didn't buy this just so they could put an LT1 in something that didn't have one originally, lol
