    That looks like a really good candidate to fix up. But $2000 and the reserve not being met is a little too much.

    He can get 2-3k if the car runs good and is rust free. But not on ebay and he will need to wait awhile for it to sell.

    It's unclear to me as to if cars in Oregon (or Washington state) rust out. I would think that it snows there, so...

    I second that. The rear shook towers, were the floor pan rises up to the rear seats, the panel the battery sits on and most spot welds are know rust spots on these cars. If those spots are rust free then 2-3k could be made in my book if its a good running car. I payed 2.5k for a almost not running EXP that was rust free with a CFI motor.

    Well my car came from this guy and in pretty good shape. I saw the GT while there, but didn't inspect as he didn't mention any interest in selling it. Haha, first picture you can see my car in background. Nonetheless mine is in good shape with no rust issues. The dude seems to be having some money issues if he is selling everything off. Said he is trying to put money towards his autistic son at the moment when we talked.

    Does not look like it sold. I told him about this site and that he should try selling it here.

    What I'm saying is a picture or two of the underside would help quell our concerns of rust.

    Also, washing it would help too. Sheesh.

    Some time ago a member here was selling a "rust free" car which showed in one picture a very rusty roof.

    When I mentioned the discrepancy he removed the incriminating picture and posted some rather hostile nonsense in defence.

    So "rust free" should be taken with a grain of salt from a seller.
