Current bid at $1340, ends on April 7 at 3:30pm EST

61k 2004 CVPI Cape May NJ



Sold for over $3000, over $3200 if you figure in fees! At auction, for a rusted piece of east coast God-knows-what. Unreal.

Man by that logic I should have no trouble more than tripling my investment in my 08 Nevada car. Kind of makes me feel better about dumping so much money into it, I should get it back if I ever sell.

Salt water immersion?


Pretty much every car they have listed has that in the ad. I'm guessing it's just a general disclaimer to warn that things will be rusty and dusty due to being in a salt air/water beach area.

At 61k with the paint being as sharp as it was, I'm assuming it was a take-home vehicle or some other city gov vehicle. I've probably seen it around in it's past life if it was a court vehicle, for example.

I had problems, so I read the book. But I'm not stupid, so that was a colossal waste of time. On the other hand, if I ever decide to become a sadist, I have the perfect manual.

I see what you did there, but it is a nice box, even if the paint makes me sad.

Use the paint to knock the price down and hit it with a buffer. It'll come back, sure as eggs is eggs.
