gee wally, no bids yet?

well beaver, some people don't run to buy dirty cars with crappy, pieced together upholstery, filthy trunks and a host of other defects, especially when their owner is a little deluded.

so wally, you don't think this car won two trophies?

not on this planet.

Wow, they even glued a bling-gold emblem to the dash.

That poor car. It could still be saved, but it would need a lot. Plus the 280 drinks practically as much gas as a 560, so why not have the V8....

I don't even know where to begin....

Wait, yes I do, look at the pic of the open door. Isn't that bondo smeared all over the inside lower door frame around the rubber seal?

How did I miss that? I grew up not very far from Clendenin WV and don't recall seeing many fancy 'uns like that.
