    Nice driver wagon, seems a little pricey for the condition but still cheaper than the recent Bobcat and Pacer wagons!

    That one will be waiting for a buyer for quite some time at that price

    Cheaper than the Bobcat in the short run. But, who knows, once you bring that barge home and start dumping time and money into it, since time is itself money.
    It seems like too much of a gamble, from what little he's showing and telling us

    True enough. But if someone said you have 10K and pick one. I’d take the barge all day long. Neither wagon is worth 10K but this one is at least a classic. I wouldn’t pay more than 5K for that Bobcat.

    Well, that's your money of which you're free to do with it what you want to. I'm not only looking in terms of personal preference. But, at the overall condition of both. One of them being practically a new car for still going for less than the new price, when taking inflation into account.
    I've owned enough surprise packages, to end up placing value on what's likely not to absorb time and money fixing up something which will never sell for what I put into it.
    Besides, the seller of the Bobcat is putting all his cards on the table, while the barge's seller is keeping us in the dark, concerning important details

    Well either could be a gamble when you get down to it. The low miler Bobcat could have a few surprises you never know.
