A nice rust free wagon.


Seems like an odd place to rust. I like how the description says normal wear

Must have been parked at the beach, facing the ocean durring the last huricane.

Or. Perhaps the car got washed out to sea whith its hood in the up position and a Great White Shark took a couple little nibbles.

Just noticed they have the ACV listed as "0", I'd have to agree with that.

They normally should have buffed it out prior to posting. Funny as the rust appears to be migating almost totally from the inside. That is a major failure of the roof panel rustwise. Very uncommon.

This is a Michigan car, probably owned by a guy who drives salt trucks in the winter, and kept it at (in?) the mine so that those darn kids wouldn't steal the hood ornament.

WHAT? It's missing!!?!? DAMMIT! I can't keep anything nice around here. I'm selling it!
