I'd rock it...after I tore off the hood, rear "decor panel???" exhaust, wheels, and that fin thingy on the roof. WTF are those a SECOND set of side markers? What can I say, I'm a sucker for white airflows. At least it's been maintained;)

Beyond the tails, fart can, and hood, it is not all that bad (and I guess the side markers in the rear quarters). I actually don't mind the white wheels on it. That said, it is totally not a $9500 car even it this were fixed.

arghh....that's alot of money spent on something so ugly/cheesy. But, as noted above, at least the mechanical condition should be excellent.

It is sad - b/c like you said, very well cared for - aside the shitty custom crap. Hood doesn't bother me as much as those poorly executed corvette tail lamps and the second set of side markers... Interior looks great!

The only thing overly offensive is that nasty rear tail light setup. I wish I could say it is just an overlay or cover but it looks like the OEM taillight housings are long gone and it is molded in...

This is how I feel as well. I think I could deal with the hood for at least a little bit.

I have seen this car in person, and it's not to my taste, but it is very, very clean.

I don't even mind the hood. The tails...eh. Whatever. It's still nicer than 90% of the C900's on here.

Everything is great besides the rear tail lights and the placement of the whaletail. Other than that, it's a very sharp car. I like the hood, lights, wheels, color, etc. It's a shame they chopped or filled the rear tail light location on the rear quarters though....deleting the outside tails was a huge mistake. I wonder if the owner realized what he was doing in terms of destroying future re-sale value....To me it seems like he could easily fetch 9500 if the rear wasn't so customized. With it being completely changed though, I don't see it getting anywhere near 9500 unless the seller finds a really limited group of buyers.

Hard to imagine that the seller went to all that trouble, and did not get the side mirrors painted to match the body color.

The only unforgivable thing he's done is the rear tail light/rear side marker "mod". Unfortunately that is the most difficult and pricey to undo.
