talk about a veteran

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/car/358971271.html

"Fluids checked regularly" On the ground after you pull away?

It's probably in mechanically fine shape and no rust!

It looks like a real war veteran.

Insurance companies call cars like that a "driveable total loss"

The advertisement doesn't say what model year the car is, but all things considered, it doesn't matter, really.

The really good thing about driving a car like that is that "NO ONE" will EVER dare argue over the right of way when you come barrelling along in a car like that

It's a very liberating feeling to drive one of those.

No wonder they were checking the fluids.

What a POS. Be interesting to call and talk to the guy. I'd like to know where the dents in the drivers door were acquired.

Cheers,

Bill

You're right Jim B. I'd park in the closest non-handicapped spot if I had that car. Reminds me of Uncle Buck's car. Hilarious.

With an exterior like that, I bet the interior is gorgeous. Hey, you can't judge a book by its cover..........

but in this case, I think we can take a few hints.

If you had to, then do it like they do in Peru. Just use house paint. (really, that is what they use down there!!!!)

Applied with a very large paintbrush, broadside on.

That thing makes my SD look mint!


$900? Its ready for the junk yard.

At least they are honest, I'm sure it hasn't seen an oil change in a long, long time. But its probably ok because it leaks and burns so much.

This car's photos should be saved in our vaults.
This has got to be the worst looking 300SD I've ever seen that still runs and drives.

LOL, no way down the streets. Just tint the glass, fix the A/C, adjust valves, I bet that motor will go! No worries about it being stolen, door dents, etc.
