Whats wrong with this car?
 
Take a look at the link I have pasted below and browse the photos. It makes me laugh see if you can catch this dealers ridiculous mistake! Beautiful car but could be represented much better if they only knew how to install the wheels!

20 something year old switched my front and back wheels on me once when I had some tires mounted at a local independent shop. I noticed right away when they pulled the car out of the bay. It happens, I didnít get all worked up. Hope the youngin learned from the mistake.

it's a cab in a chick color. if cindy Lauper owned it in the early 90's there may be a premium to be paid. remember janis' 356?

Yikes, i wonder how it would drive with one wide and one narrow front wheel.

HaroldMHedge 10-11-2018 07:41 PM

Interesting red interior as well.

Did you know. Stock 80's Carrera, front wheels are bigger than the rears.

no joke.

It's not uncommon to run rear wheels on the front, but most folks shelve the front wheels and run even wider rears. Although it would be easier to slide around and break the rear tires loose...http://forums.pelicanparts.com/suppo...eys/icon26.gif

freshly rotated tires - at least on one side

I would have to say the price: on application is an even bigger mistake. Anyone really looking to buy will see that and just keep looking, assuming that it means that they have very little interest in selling it, and thus itís priced accordingly. Iíve got no interest in applying for anything to find out how much youíre asking for a used car. LOL. Itís such a pretentious way of marketing cars, albeit at a certain price point I get it (sort of). This car doesnít belong in that pretentious class, not by a long shot. Fix the wheels and post an asking price.

The funniest part is the left side of the car has the wheels in the right spot. Makes you really wonder what 'professionally serviced' really means. Looking through the pictures you can see one or two small things here and there.

Interesting point, the last picture has 'ryan friedman motorcars' on the bottom banner. Look up that car on their website and it lists as 'sold'.

In any case, I think the biggest take away here is look at the pictures. If you are about to sell a big ticket item like a classic car or a house, invest in the $150 and hire a professional photographer. It is well worth it. The right pictures will create an emotional reaction in potential buyers. What's the thing about first impressions again?

Anyone really looking to buy ....will pick up the phone and call.
No price weeds out the time wasters. These are professional sellers.

I have zero intention of arguing with you Sugar, but it almost always means the price isnít even realistic. Thus why they donít want to advertise it. I know this from calling on many of these, and theyíre almost always way off the market.

sugarwood 10-12-2018 07:57 PM

Agreed, but now think about the subset of those who know its a crack pipe asking, but still decide to call. Voila! You've just saved yourself dealing with the other 99 time wasters, and snagged the big fish without lifting a finger. Me and you are not paying $75k for a 3.2, but the one guy who does follow up will.
