Ok, it's not a DeLorean, but it's still a pretty neat car. A friend of mine asked me to list it for him on eBay and I figured I'd just link it up here if anyone was interested, or maybe knew someone else who was interested. It would be a great candidate for a rolling resto, or even just some light tinkering, it's a really solid car, her age aside.

My cruising buddy had one of those when we were in HS. It was a fun ride, gas mileage was a joke but we cared as much about MPG then as we do now.

I think he is a little optimistic on the price. I think 3,500 is close to top of the market right now(if not over) for that car in it's present condition and mileage.

Thanks for the insight. I'll do a little looking and let the owner know.

It's a frickin' aircraft carrier.

Update: I think he's willing to drop his reserve to 5. I've been poking around a little too, I think Michael's take on it is a tad low, but either way, the price is fair I think.
