Odd wheels on that Mk V. And anyone know what that oil-filter looking thing sticking out the side of the air cleaner on the Mk V does?
The wheels are horrible and that's not a "gold edition" it just happens to be gold. The oil filter looking device is just and air chamber to prevent drone and make the engine quieter.
The car actually looks decent for the price.
Two door Kcar is certainly a survivor.

I had quite a reaction to the interior picture of that Tempo; specifically the automatic seat belts. Geez, those things sucked.

Maxima had them too.
I got rid of what was one of my favorite cars (a 1991 mazda 626 hatch) when it hit 90K, largely because I hated those belts. Still should have kept it though.

So did the Cressida. I had an '88 that I put 150K on because I liked the car. But I hated those automatic belts each and every time I got into it. The ultimate insult was that they never would have worked as well as a 3-point harness if I had gotten into an accident, but I couldn't have the harnesses because the car had this lame system. Needless to say, I never start a car without belting up first, so I needed those automatic jobs like I needed a cold sore transplant.

$2200 for a 400,000 miled up dented Maxima? I don't think so. He'd be lucky if he finds somebody to give him $1000 for it.

At 400K a car really isn't worth anything. I mean, would you choose a 106 year old man for a tennis partner?

Put the correct wheels on and it wouldn't look too bad. It seems to me that a lot of these decent driver quality "barge" Lincolns have been showing up. For under 5K you can have something nice, if you are into that kind of thing.
Growing up my Aunt had a similar vintage Cougar in that same color combo. I remember her having it into the 90s.

Mk Vs all need those "turbine" style wheels.
