While crawling along the 405 freeway in Los Angeles as my wife drives, I spotted this on Craigslist. Not mine.....

I am not, but it’s a nice thing to see in relation to the (not perfect) ‘85 (not 85.5) that I just got for my wife.

Nice car, but I think he’d be better off selling on BAT. That’s the kind of Spider they like to sell.

And, maybe for 19k, changing the rear shocks would be okay to do.

Apparently when in first grade he wasn't paying much attention to learning how to count. I see a price much higher than $19K.

Valued at $33.xK & will sell for $19K. Looks like a cool time capsule. I’m sure it would give a certain amount of terrible grief getting all the moving parts turning freely, electrons flowing correctly & rubber parts correctly doing their job if you wanted to drive it, but that’s not a big deal. I agree it needs to hit BAT not CL.

What I like is hell a car with frozen shocks is described as a “condition. In my mind actually think that is accurate because I think of a car that gets rolled off of a trailer into a parking spot and then displayed and then rolled back.
