not a single taker on this one? what do you guys think is the asking price to high? nobody has a spare bird that would like a unique car in its place then? LOL

looks like a good price to me, but most buyers see them with part primer and part paint and think it is bad

i would consider trading this for a 79-81 as well as other project cars or even something newer that i could just sell. this was my dads project though cool and unique its just not what i want to do at all. funny thing is i paid for this car 2 times and when i think about that boy does it suck lol.

sold it yesterday to a buddy for 600. I took a major loss but i got to help my dad and put a little bit of my money back in my pocket so im good with it. downside is that this ammount doesnt cover my ooooohh crap the furnace broke funds. looks like i'll be starting all over with saving for a t/a

more like I have a manual choke. he wanted the car in a major way and my wife..... NOT wanting me to bring the car home. so i'll chalk it up as a loss but atleast i was able to help out my dad financially for the moment.

however long it takes my wallet to recover lets put it that way. i thought i'd have one by now but the way things are going it may take 1-2 more years unless a miracle happens.
