Certainly worth the BIN - and I KNOW we're not supposed to tear into these cars in our "Don't wanna chance runnin' anyone off!" MO - but I hafta say.... That grille guard is just plain hideous! These cars look SO MUCH nicer with out this (sorry, I can't think of a nicer word than "crap") on it. In fact, bumper guards and these grotesque "fog lites" just muck up the front end of 55s. [xx(]
I mean.... I know such stuff is "rare", but rare doesn't always translate to cool! [B)]
Wtill a beautiful car tho. What a shame to do one up like this and then let it sit.[8]

Thanks for saying what I wanted to. God thats one ugly mug with all that extra crud hanging on the front. Unobstructed front bumper is better.

I'm a shallow jerk, I never even walked over to the car at York because it's a sedan. It is in very good shape, but to me, it's just not interesting. N8 thinks GT's are ugly, so there's room for all opinions. I will say, they are far better drivers then the flashy cars, sorta like the plain looking wife that's a great cook.:)

Funny how opinions vary... I like the guard AND the lights on there[8D]

Again- There's a BIG difference between disliking an accessory and disliking someone's work. Hopefully someday we'll all see the difference..........

I caught a ride over to the Fairgrounds on Saturday morning (it was easier than navigating my rollback around town) and saw the car as I was walking to my vending spot. Out of curiosity I asked the owner how much. He responded $10K but that we could talk if I sold a lot of stuff. It would be a bit more appealing to me with an automatic.
