    LOL Reminds me of a old friend...

    He, his wife an a couple kids were headed to PA in two cars with one needing a transmission, he and his brother were going to repl it when he got there(his dad had tow service and had lots of acquired vehicles they dragged in off the PA Turnpike)... Idea was if it crapped out along the way they'd still have transportation... It made it up near Tappahannock VA(about 100 miles) and it quit pulling, so ole TC pulls out the pipe and chain, proceeded to strap them together and head for PA... Well they got somewhere around Winchester VA when a cop stopped them asked where he was going, TC says "just up the road"... Cop says, just up road where??? Uhhh Pennsylvania??? Cop exclaimed "get that damned thing off the road!!" He had to go rent a legitimate tow bar to finish the trip... Which was probably another 125 miles...

    I drove home a parts truck with HORRIBLE death wobble. About 100 miles. The guy said almost at the last minute "oh itll start shaking sometimes, just steer left and hit the brakes". At first it felt like the world was ending, then after that it just pissed me off since I couldn't go above 50 mph for very long. Everything that wasn't already on the floor, was immediately on the floor each time it happened LOL

    I drove a Turbo Coupe home with a dead brake booster which gives approx same braking as dragging your foot, far less brakes than a dead vacuum booster... At 40mph I followed a buddy and stayed around 200ft from him(kept left foot ready to hit clutch to shove it back into 1st or hit parking brake), problem was every idiot on road wanted to get between us... Luckily the auction site was only approx 7-8 miles from my house...

    No way is that car worth $4k! What the heck are they thinking is so special about it? It's pretty but it'd have to have super low miles & no rust. People are nuts!
    I saw another post on here about some guy complaining about how he only got $500 for a car that doesn't run & doesn't have a title! From the pictures, it looks pretty beat down regardless of how rare it is, I'd take $500 & run!

    I think it falls under the "it's old so it's worth $$$$$" category.

    That line of thought is usually wrong.
