    1985 chevy sprint

    original Suzuki 3-cyl engine with just over 200,000 miles, manual transmission

    Pros: engine runs, carburetor rebuilt 3-4 years ago, when carburetor is adjusted properly you can get 40mpg, passes safety inspection (does not require emissions), in 3 more years when it hits 35 years it won't have to be inspected at all, i added a pioneer am/fm cd player when i got it, it is cheap if you need a car that runs, that is about all of the good stuff

    i will throw in extra set of brake pads that i bought last time, will also throw in the Alabama cassette tape that was in the car when i bought it, has the original receipt from when my coworker (who i got it from) bought it as i am second owner

    Cons: carburetor needs regular adjustment, it will need tires before long but you can prob get another year out of them, body has dents and needs paint (it currently sports black Krylon), small leak where windshield meets dash, no A/C (this was bought when cars had to be ordered with A/C), upholstery is torn on each and every seat, it has a heater but you will be cold on the way to work in the dead of winter as my zippo puts out more heat, it will not go much over about 65mph, if going up a steep hill you may lose speed even when you downshift, there are golf tees in some of the vacuum hoses which i was told to leave there and it has never failed to crank/run so i did indeed leave them in place, if you do not hold the back hatch it will fall and hit you really hard in the back of the head while you are bent over to do whatever you needed to do in the back of the car, it is light enough for your coworkers to pick it up and move it between two trees or so that the door sits against one tree so you can't get inside

    $GONE!!!!!!!!

    Of all the people the people that sent a PM or called/texted saying they wanted it, none ever showed up.

    I did always say it was EXTREMELY NEGOTIABLE.

    The only price I see is $1. If that's the case I'll take it.

    We should all pony up some dough and find a place to hold a meet-n-greet and blow this thing to smithereens :)

    Did Brian K buy it for $1? I'd love to grab this as a cheap commuter beater, but I have too many already. :)
