    Default 84 Skylark T-type

    I've seen this advertised before, he has it listed again. This time he's only asking 1800. For those who seen the earlier craigslist ad it didn't look too bad. Now only asking 1,800. If it were closer to me I'd sure jump on it. http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/cto/1684365643.html

    Good grief, that ad is horrible! Generic pics and it will "smoke most anything on the road", lol. Maybe if it were still 1984

    Well, it's not exactly a heavy car, and the VIN Z 2.8 makes good power, so yeah, it can probably take a Civic DX or something.

    The ad he posted a while back had pics of the actual car and it looked pretty decent. White/grey.

    It may look good but most people are going to assume that if you post the brochure pics only that the car is a rusted out piece of crap.

    The pictures showed it is a complete car but the paint was showing its age. I'll email him and see if I can get some pics.

    Yeah, it's a Muncie four speed manual. Pretty good box—Fiero guys use them behind much more powerful engines than that 2.8 without issues.
