    How the hell does he get it out of that parking space?

    You'd think that he'd actually get it out of that space and into the open before taking photos, but he doesn't. For 9 grand, he should do a better job on the photos, including interior and engine as well, which he has nothing of.

    $9,500 must be that Yankee money price. He probably just paid $10 for a pack of smokes before posting the add. It do look nice. I like the tail lights on the bumper

    Very few non-Malibu A/G body wagons left. Even fewer in this condition. Still don't know if it's worth $9500, though.

    It's Chicago. There isn't anywhere to go. Plus if he ever moved it he'd never get his parking spot back.

    I think it is a sharp looking Buick. Already set up with an SBC so that is a big plus too. I don't know if it is worth $9.5k, but as stated there aren't many of the Buick A/G Body wagons around any more.

    You can tell he’s a Chicago guy. First thing is “salt free”. It wouldn’t stay that nice if its tucked in that parking spot all winter. Hope someone snaps it up out of that climate. $9,500/$9,000 seems a bit ambitious. Wish too that he had some interior and stand alone pics. I’m nervous for the poor thing when the guy in front or back plays “bump & scootge” to get their cars out.

    That's a great job of parallel parking.
