kinda funny, didn't read the ad.  wonder why, really.

His wife was really not happy when they came to get the car. He also stated he had zero mechanical knowledge or skill. I’d guess the reason is somewhere between those two.

And I note that it is his wife selling it. Wonder if she got it in the divorce?

In case anyone really hates themselves, my old car is up for sale again.

Well.....that didn't take long.

It took even less that that apparently. 1 month of ownership?

I wonder what he’s talking about?

The digital dash didn’t really work(it just flickered), but he knew that before he even saw the car, and I told him ~$350 and sending it to Brian Batee would get it fixed.The cruise control was pulled off with the carb conversion.

She listed it for $3280 but he has it for $5000. Sounds like he really doesn’t want to sell it.

Pete you should low ball her and then see if you can sell it back to him for a profit.

Your car was much Much prettier than mine :( but Fiona (as ive come to call her) is an ogre... 

Did you realy hate getting in and out so bad? I drove one with a full "intrusion prevention" roll cage that you had to be a contortionist to get in to... You should test drive one.

In reply to Crazier :

Getting in wasn’t so bad, but at 5’6” I need to sit so close to the steering wheel that it doesn’t leave much room for ingress/egress. Sliding in wasn’t too much of a problem, but with the sill being as tall as bottom seat bolster it made it difficult to swing my legs up & out. I ended up rolling 1/2-way out, using my hand on the back of the sill. Then I could drag my right leg out & push myself upright. 

Of course, in a parking lot without enough room to open the door fully, it complicated the problem. Since I basically only drove the car to Walmart & back, it was an issue nearly every time.

In reply to Crazier :

I ran across a serious tutorial on the Corvette forum that explained proper egress and Ingress for a C4 Corvette. Didn't really memorize it but if I recall correctly the proper procedure on Entry is to raise steering wheel, plant right foot in-center of floorboard, face rearward and lower yourself in buttocks first as you swing your left leg in  or some such foolishness. Exit was the reverse. LOL

I cracked my windshield using it to haul myself out. I slipped and put all my weight on the top corner. Metal flexed just the tiniest bit...
