What is this discussion about?

shipping from Alaska to the lower 48 is pricey as well. And really who buys an SM on the blind?

That Renault is definitely "so ugly it's cool." I've called a few dealers when you have to call for mileage. I've never been pleasantly surprised.

agreed about the Toyota. I am used to seeing "call for price" (a nice warning to not bother to call!) but have never seen call for miles!
I do like that car though. And yes Fin, that generation Camry (4 door also) came in a manual. Just a rare bird.
if the miles are not obscene, could be a good deal. I could live with it. Just missing the moonroof.

I think I have even seen an 02+ Camry with a manual, but never a Solara. I bet that one is 200K or more, it's old enough now. I see a dent in the door too.

If you click this link to a BAT comments page, there's a post near the bottom from "Bob in Seattle." Same "Bob" as the seller of the craigslist R16 maybe? Had to laugh at the last pic with Renault facing Bogart..."I'm shocked. Shocked to find that gambling is going on in here."

Wow, good catch - has to be, as there can't be too many R16s owned by Bobs anywhere.

In another forum I frequent I am trying my best to talk someone out of a mistake.
They want to purchase an 82 Lincoln Mark VI Bill Blass. It has a reconstructed title, a hacked engine harness, doesn't currently run, needs tires (20 years old) and the interior needs help.
They are going to pay 1050 for it. I told them to move on and save up for something in better shape (naturally costing more money).
I posted this example Mark VI and am explaining that for $3500 you could never get the other one to this level.
I can't be wrong on this can I?
Here are the pics of the one he wants:

Opinion from the experts
That's not me, but (as difficult as it is to say this), aside from me liking the color scheme on the car he wants better, the short answer is that there's no way in hell he can get that car to the level of the other one for $2500.
If he buys that car, it will a labor of love that will likely not end as envisioned (by him) for either him or the car. That said, it wouldn't be the only one out there (hey, stop pointing at me!), so I wish him the best of luck with his decision, whatever it may be.
