Yeah, a 100% rust free fintail, I'd like to see that. Maybe if the dents could be popped out, it would be less hard on the eyes.
Sometimes bones don't matter too much when you're going to sink 40K into something and get 15K back, as this car could manage.

I was thinking more of a "sympathetic restoration" as we call it in the appraisal biz---that is, body filler, steam clean under and in engine bay, cheap paint job, safety check and incorrect re-upholstering. We also call these a "30-30 car" ---From 30 feet away at 30 mph, nobody would know.

Or just buy one already like that for 5-6K - unless fintails have started taking off in value (fingers crossed).

re: the "6.9" - no badge on the trunk, is he sure?
And I like that E cab, remember them being $$$$ when new.

I have some doubts about the "6.9". It also appears to have a Euro cloth (?) seat. No engine pics. Doesn't look like a grey market car as it has DOT bumpers/lights and a NA style HVAC unit. Could be debadged, or just a goofball who thinks every 450 is a 6.9. It's a hopeless mess either way.
The 124 cabrios were around 80K, IIRC - in early 90s dollars.

I love and hate the color. If I had one, would definitely have to be period correct like this
Hmmm, that make me nostalgic. I changed many a diaper that looked like that car.
That Pontiac ambulance.... WTF?! "Runs" Yeah, I bet. Was he talking about the car or potential buyers?
I love that SR22 pickup. I wonder if those are current photos - they look like they were scanned from hard copies, and the truck looks practically new in them. If that's what it looks like today then its not a bad price, honestly.
Overall, you have some real freak shows in western Washington, fin!

I saw an S-10 Blazer today that probably matched some diapers you've seen, too
The Toyota appears to have a relatively modern stereo head unit, so the pics shouldn't be too old.
Now if it was just something like this...

Sorry, I don't get the reference.
Is the black 4x4 from a TV series...?
Enlighten the culturally challenged, please!
