Ya'll know I don't usually post my auction stuff here. This is a serious
of messages from over a year ago I still keep to remind me how silly
people really are.
The car in question was a 1985 Supra with Sevre Right Rear Damage. The
frame was almost touching the ground. the body was pushed in 15 inches,
and was listed as a "parts car" with a engine that "runs good". In the
pictures you could see the damage, and see the exhaust pipe crumpled.
The fact that it would move was amazing since the independant rear end
had shifted, and was binding the drive shaft. The car had good wheels,
good seats, good doors, a good front clip and a good engine. I had the
first bid price at $250 (roughly the value of the good parts, minus the
labor of pulling them). The auction even stated that it had not been
driven for 3 years!
Ill keep the persons name out of it.
>> How much oil will it use between a 3000 mile oil change ?
>> Are the breaks good , ie rotors , calipers and pads ? Does it pull or
>>shimmy during breaking ?
>> Hows the engine on power is it peppy or sluggish ?
>> Hows the exhaust system ? good or needing work ?
>> Hows the stearing is it tight with a good front end and parts ?
>> I know it's wrecked but if you can honestly state that it " Runs
Good >>"you should be able to asnswer the questions otherwise you
wouldn't >>know if it "runs good "
