    This Baur is actually pretty sweet with the alpina wheels, no clue what body kit that is though
    Hi, I am selling my rare 1985 BAUR BMW 323i Convertible for $8,800. This has been truly a fun car...

    A little bit different , but I personally like the "CLEAN CAR, NO ROT. Just some minor surface rust spots on the rear windows, sunroof, rear windshield, front wipers, doors, door jambs, front fenders, under the headlights, and battery box. " with no pictures of the under-carriage, one picture of the outside from 30 ft away, and two pictures of the interior, both from the drivers door side - one showing some busted ass steering wheel, cracked dash, and no-name shifter with missing boot, and the other one of some strange angle of the back seat.

I see guys buy project cars and lowball the crap out of people and then turn around and try to resell for more than the car was originally listed for at the time.
    I see the same thing. One of those in my area, in slightly worse condition but would start and drive around, was listed for 1,000.

    I'd rather have that safety green vert than that 944.

    Pfft... He really "knows what he has." I don't think NA 944s are rare enough yet for that beat up turd to fetch $3k... And those wheels might be worth $1000 but not in that condition. When something looks bad in craigslist pics you know it is bad.

    pretty f'in bonerfic for the price



    https://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/pts...112727263.html

    1983 Porsche 944 5-speed

    Clean title, manual car

    Perfect original seats, dash on Immaculate RARE Vintage BBS RA wheels

    car currently does not start, needs a battery and a starter

    111,XXX original documented miles

    perfect car to flip with a tight budget, will make a great profit with less than 500$ invested into it, I had big plans to make this car my personal daily, but unfortunately my work schedule has gotten in the way and i don't have the time to give this beautiful car the attention it deserves. My loss is your gain

    the set of BBS RA wheels alone is valued at over $1,000

    Only serious buyers only please, I’m very busy and everyone keeps asking to see the car without talking money: $3000 or better offer will not consider anything under 2000 and I am not taking any kind of trade

    call or text 305-333-0715

    Rare Ferrari F-40 Kit Car - $24000

    Click image for larger version Name:	00T0T_a3TbweDSr92_600x450.jpg Views:	0 Size:	52.3 KB ID:	9925268


    This is one of the rarest Ferrari F40 Body Kit Built on a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
    NOT A FIERO KIT
    Look at the pictures and judge by yourself
    the kit was taken of the market due to a lawsuit between Ferrari and the Kit Makers
    only a few rare ones remain.
    If you are a Kit Car Fanatic , Let's talk
    the real Ferrari sells around $2.2 Million dollars
    Everywhere I go, it starts a conversation
    This is a great Signature vehicle
    Publicity comes easy with this

    has GM 350
    4 barrel New Edelbrock Carburetor
    aluminum heads
    headers
    new tires
    Just replaced front disk, brake calipers, pads
    rear drums, cylinders and shoes
    Replaced Master brake cylinder
    Replaced Brake Hoses
    replaced water pump

    cost over $2000.00
    rear traction
    GM Trans am platform
    refurbished inside out

    still some cosmetic flaws, nothing alarming

    if this car had a ZR1 engine and the new corvette suspension
    I would be asking twice this amount easy....


    Thanks for looking
    that's...just...terrible. I think he would have to give me 24k just to take it off his hands. but...according to the seller, its..."rare". yay!

    I selling my 1988 Toyota MR2, I Purchased the car ten years ago,this car is from Arizona. The body is in really good shape original paint,the reason I selling is because the engine is knocking and I don't have the money and the time to fix it is a great project car.

    If this had been for sale when I was E30 shopping, I probably never would have bought an E30. AW11 MR2s were on my short list, I would really love to rebuild that little engine and shoot for 10lb/hp or better, or swap it.
