    It was stored in the garage the first 25 years of its life. I don’t know, if it were in my family since New I sure would have found a way to keep it in, especially with only 56k on it. Also it looks like he spent more time putting the shop towels over the license plates than cleaning the crap out of the front seat. It seems that there are so many of these out there that seem to be bargains. Why would you plunk down 4K on this obvious project car.

    Nope nope and nope. Did that garage have a roof ? Are there really current tags under the rags ? Have the leaks rusted out the floors and ruined the interior ? Too much work on what is visible and who knows what is not being shown. Think I could do much better if I wanted a 78 Olds Toronado and had $4k to spend.

    I would call it junk, but the Playboy air freshener really adds to the appeal. :rofl2:

    When those 'fresheners' were for sale, we boys had a joke about what the 'scent' was.

    Let me guess. It must have had something to do with The Birds, The Bees and multiplying like rabbits

    It's doubtful that it'll even end up a K car at all
