You may remember the $600 Caprice, the $600 Aerostar, or the $400 G20. Those vehicles set the "CVN Price" at new lows.

Well, I'm down another 2 bills with this one.

Okay, here are the particulars.

2004 CVLX.
134k.
Moonroof, steering wheel HVAC/stereo, EATC, cloth interior. RUST. It was a NY car for the first three years of its life, then bought in '07 by the CVNer I bought the car from.

The seller is moving to FL next week and needed to offload the car quick. It's worth more than I paid for it. I didn't need or want a car, but he threw that number at me and I couldn't resist.

The car needs brakes - BADLY. Super soft pedal, and the rotors and pads are trash. I suspect a leaky brake line somewhere, too. Steering shaft is pretty seized up and PB Blaster didn't do anything to help it. Luckily, I've got one of those on hand. It might also need a blower motor resistor, because that's finicky. But the A/C is cold and it passed emissions...



This is the bad side of the car.




Yes, the interior is that clean.

You and I have a different definition of "RUST" if that's the "bad" side of the car. What's it look like underneath?

No idea what it looks like underneath. For $200, I didn't feel like crouching down...or checking fluids. laugh

(Plus, I didn't wanna look a gift horse in the mouth.)

I mean, I could sell the A/S tires for half of the purchase price and still get $300 scrap. I'll inspect further whenever I get around to tossing brakes on this turd.

Again, words have very different definitions to you and me. A car in that condition, as long as the underneath was solid and it ran right would be worth a lot more than that here.

No, it means I wielded my powers and moved an old Classified thread that nobody responded to and changed the subject line.

C'mon. This forum will never be fixed. VerticalScope, y'know?

$200?!? Where do you people find these deals? I just looked at a B/W ‘05 P71 shytpile with a seized A/C compressor and a tire. The lot wanted $1500.

This is what I've been saying - in my own peculiar way.
