...to that beat-up '69! Before even reading the description, I could tell it didn't have an engine in it! Back when I had my Bonneville, I got the front-end piece (bumper/grille, beak, and headlights) from a junkyard 'vert that was sitting in that exact same stance! Had to drag that thing about 1/4 mile though the snow and muck too, and got a good case of Mono out of the deal!
Kinda interesting too, to see just how quick the Pontiacs bloated up. I mean, at a quick glance, the '66 in that pic almost looks like an intermediate, but that '69 is a battlecruiser!
Oh crap, I see it's just in Pennsylvania, too! Just a 2-hour drive from me! Must....resist....temptation!
The guy selling the '66 has a negative feedback? Seems he sold a Honda with a salvage title on eBay w/out disclosing the fact. Dunno what that means for the Pontiac, but...
#91 of 96 I don't understand when.......

.......people want to sell a $12,000 item on eBay (sight unseen) with one kinda murky picture (not close up, either). His description was also less than detailed. Makes you wonder if he's just lazy or has something to hide, or both.
The Rally wheels on the '66 bother me. Not necessarily because I'm a purist, it just always seemed like some anomaly like that was a tip off that other things weren't right either.
Regarding condos, I used to manage them so I've seen the dark underside of condo living. If you're a collector there's no place to put your collection. If you're not a collector you don't always enjoy seeing someone's collection sitting around biodegrading. All of this is less of a problem in a single-family neighborhood, and no problem at all in the country. Unfortunately, condos are all that most gearheads can afford, especially if they're rescueing money pits from storage lots . Resist...Andre...resist.
I was mildly interested until I read the description. A hyperactive small block with freeway gears would not be my drivetrain of choice for that tank. The other stuff might be okay as long as it wasn't hung on with duct tape.
If I owned it I'd install a luggage rack and trailer hitch just to disprove the old joke about hearses. Maybe some vacation stickers too.
