Why do people not understand that mileage on the vehicle doesn't = engine mileage. The guy only posted the mileage on the rebuilt engine, and claims that as the truck's miles.

They don't understand vehicles, period.

There are plenty of people who think if a car has a good engine, it is a good car. As if that is all that matters.

If you showed these people pictures of major components of a car, they probably couldn't even consistently identify which one is the engine.

This car has been clogging my zcar searches for a very long time. He started listing it at like $13000.

OMG....where to begin...

I'd say with the stripes on the side...what is with that weird angle at the front. In the pictures, it initially looks like he has some ill-fitting body kit on the thing.

And in the rear it looks like he actually does.

And the speakers...W...T...F.

This is obviously a very personalized vehicle. Maybe he doesn't realize that the market for this car only ever consisted of one individual.

Just to be fair to the seller, those pictures do show the cleanest Geo I've ever seen.

With the "complete brand new exhaust," and it being a New York car, I doubt it's as clean as it looks.

Anyone have that "bran new" macro?



On the same level as some of these, but not seen on craigslist, yesterday I was riding my bicycle, and I rode past a 1980s Chrysler New Yorker for sale, parked, not running, on the street. 350 dollars. I didn't stop, or even slow down, and it was immediately obvious why it was only 350 dollars (besides being a 20+ year old Chrysler).

when I came upon this:

The guy wants 3800 bucks for about 90% of a Fiero that is sitting in pieces waiting for an unspecified "replica type exotic fiberglass body." (Looks like one of the "Ferrari" ones. Could be worse)

I would only believe that guy if by "finance company" he means "loan shark". I can't imagine any vaguely reputable institution underwriting a 22 year old economy car for any amount, much less that amount.

Every used car lot in Northern Arizona asks and will settle for not much less than prices like that (like the place asking 4 grand for a beat-up Festiva). I'm guessing there are enough complete loving retards around that they can count on them. I mean one 4000 dollar CRX is worth probably 3 or 4 2000 dollar ones to the dealer.

I'm sure all of them can arrange for them to be financed at those prices.

I've never seen anything THAT bad in Northern AZ (which is as bad as I've ever seen), but a lot of stuff along the same lines. I look at a dealer lot and 4, 6 months later, nearly all the same cars are still there. There was a Cherokee that sat on one lot for 10 months. (In gorgeous shape, too)

I cannot comprehend how these places stay in business when they're so spectacularly good at NOT selling cars. Are they fronts for drug sales? Or do they really screw people over hard enough when they finally get one that it makes up for all the cars they aren't selling?

White 4 door hatchback, tan interior, automatic, 4 cylinder, AC, it has 203,000 miles and still running strong. California title.
$1200.00 Firm

The body and interior is in great condition, original owners manual still in glove box.

I purchased the car Feb 1, 2008 because of Toyota's reputation for reliability and great gas mileage (it runs forever on a tank of gas). I just can't get used to a little car, I need another full size truck. (especially when my kids and their friends think I'm their personal taxi!!)

Feb 14, I took in in for an oil change, radiator hose replacement, new air cleaner and emmisions test, it passed.
It does need maintenance on the exhaust pipe, it rattles against the underside of car and has corrosion holes.

Three original hubcaps on car, it is missing one, Hubcap Annies on the corner of Eastern/Charleston are searching the for an original replacement.

Serious inquiries only please. 735-3613 or 465-7159
