    Default 88 Thunderbird with 20k miles, asking $15K

    And it's not even a Turbo Coupe. Insane. It's a base V6 car with a few options. It's never going to sell at that price.

    Huh, not as rust-free as I expected.

    Yeah, it's nice and all, but not 15k nice.

    I'd could get a daily-driver condition Buick Grand National for that kinda money, lol...

    For 15k, I'd expect the muffler to be replaced.

    I mean maybe, maybe $15K if it was a 5 speed Turbo Coupe. Maybe. Surprising amount of chassis surface rust for a southern car.

    I don't know why they wouldn't. It's not like the factory muffler with a hole adds value.
