OO very nice! I bet the guy will let it go at a reasonable price.


I have a similar one near me.
('97 SSE I was gonna buy is still sitting with 2 flats, I think I am gonna ask if I can just have it for $50. I just want the rims (chrome t-stars).

Don't know. Its just been sitting there for the past few months.

It was moved to a couple different spots in that lot.

And I haven't seen a Forsale sign. If it was a good price it'd be sitting behind my bonne right now.

Don't be afraid to ask. That'* how I scored my '87 Fiero GT with 60k miles in 2005. I went and asked the guy if he wanted to sell it, as it was sitting for a very long time. He said "yes" and I got it for $900.

Slip a note somewhere on the car. I would try to get it in the car via slipping it through a window. Older cars are easy to get sutff like paper into.

Ok, The curiousness got enough on me and I went and looked at it. It looks OK up close. Needs a cleaning and has a bit of paint peel on the edge of the doors. Front and rear bumpers looks a little off and need to be re-chromed it looks like. Inside It looked fine. All the seats we're covered and there we're some aftermarket gauges on the mid-top of the dash. Also some flowmaster stickers in there so maybe its been modded before. There IS a for sale sign on it, but it was small and not visible from the world (hence why I never saw one) Year 1965 Price $3,000

If only I had the $$ this would be a nice project car

Maybe tomorrow I'll go take more pics of her
