I've seen just about every type of picture taken with poor lighting and silly angles, to make a bad car look good, but this takes the cake. At least they tell you that it's a parts car only, up front, but for crying out loud, can you at least take the pictures with a bigger flashlight???

to look at it.

I think that's the Crypt Car's PO seeing if Dale will bite again.

Talk about keeping someone in the dark!

nice of him to mention that it's not "operational or street legal"...wouldn't want any surprises. According to his negative feedback he is "money hungry and "omits words to trick". Could that be the case here? ...hmmm..

what they're not telling you is it's their neighbors car and the pictures were taken in the dead of night so no one would see them. /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
.
that was worthy of a good laugh!

Guys, trust me on this.

I already paid the funeral home
for Crypty's February garage space
rent.

They have no right to take photos of
Crypty without my permission and then
try to sell him for $100.

I almost hsd a heart attack and died
when I saw those photos.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Actually, that "bright" illumination came from a pair of Lucas headlights on a TR-2 at a very high tick-over! /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif</span>

I can't believe this guy is asking for someone to pay $200 to clean up his scrap pile. I mean come on....shouldn't he be paying someone to haul this off?

He should have put the flashlight up for auction instead!

I'd imagine there's some sad story behind this. Looks like most of these haven't been touched in at least 10-15 years. I dont understand why people hoard them only to let them rot.

My bet would be an estate liquidation of some sort. Looks like a dirt floor in the building; that's certain death.

On second thought, it looks like most of these were dead before they were even stored. Cant imagine any drove in under their own power.

Someone ought to offer the guy $1000 bucks in cash for all of it.

It would take a week to clear them all out of there. Sad, really.

I smell rat.

...all the tell-tale Ebay rodent droppings - cashiers check only, links at the bottom of the page are non-functional, eveything ends within minutes of each other...

run away!
