There is quite a bit of discussion surrounding this car on the BB but not much specifically about the car itself. Search the BB. It seems the owner has been hot and cold about selling it in the past which drew the ire of some folks. Not seen anything negative about the car itself though.
The auction and the pictures seem to suggest this is a pretty clean car. He does state that there are some rust bubbles but does not show any pictures of them.
I am curious what the guy saw specifically when he looked at the car that would characterize it as a disaster.
