I'm a real head scratcher when someone on craigslist says "phone me and I can send pics". Post the damn pics in your listing, whydoncha? Show me that it's "beautiful" and has a "super clean" interior. Don't wast everyone's time by making me phone you, listen to your sales pitch, verbally give you my email address so you can make a mistake and send the pics to someone else etc.

I went today for a test drive. I was shocked how well the drivers side door opened. I new right there it only had 100,xxx miles on it. It had some play in the streering, idle arms looked not that old. Brakes were excellent. Needed new shocks. felt some vibration, but was probably the tires. Had some minor hesitation, maybe just needed a tune up. Thought maybe I heard a small exhaust manifold leak, but may of been a donut.
In front of the back wheel wells there was some rust, it went all the way through. Just in the rocker panels. The crankseal was leaking, and he just had a new airteck fuel pump put in.
I got him down to 900 dollars then walked away. Between the bad tires, the rust, and the fact that it was a 1993, I passed. !993 anything in the rust belt is hard to resell if the need arose.
