I’ve gone several weeks without much snark, but I couldn’t help myself when I saw this ad. Let’s break it down line by line:
“Was in storage for past 18 years.” Where? At the bottom of a lake?
“Good condition, only missing a grille and a few small parts.” You know, just little stuff, like every piece of trim, the bumper, the door handle, and, oh yeah, I almost forgot A FENDER.
“Floor pans are in rough shape, especially passenger side.” Simple enough, just drive alone. Floor pans really seem to be the least of your worries here.
“Seats and interior panels have been redone in white leather and are in great shape.” Because everyone starts their complete frame-up restoration process with the seats. And white leather? This is supposed to look like Starsky’s car, not Huggy Bear’s.
“The plan was to restore this beauty, but I have too many other projects and can’t give it the attention it deserves.” Fine, but I don’t know what level of attention any 1973 Ford Torino is worth, unless you’re The Dude.
“$1200 OBO” Knock any one of those digits off and you have a deal.
