Sounds fishy.... but maybe they just really need to get rid of it.
In anycase I wouldn't buy it w/o driving it and having it inspected.

I figured out what was fishy... the cadillac in the back ground doesnt have a grill!!!

Oh... and the seller has no feed back, and no pix of the supercharger!!

I'm not very ebay savy... so I didn't notice the feedback thing....
I'm very curious about the supercharger..... or lack of.

Even if the car doesn't really run... for sub $300 it would be worth it to scrap it for parts.

Or even better.... a good project car.... like givemebreak did with his white Bonnie.

Those old base model bonnies go cheap, but normally a car that cheap is sold AS IS AND WHERE IS. buy has to transport, normally says in real big letters something like "seller makes no warranty claims as to the condition or operation of the vehicle"

on the other hand, i bought my '93 for $350 at a real auto auction (definately not ebay)
