I just got a kick out of this one. Rusty little Lark in NY on Long Island (fair helping of upside though!). Listing text starts out OK until the end, where it degenerates into this:

THERE IS A LOW RESERVE ON THIS AUCTION . THIS IS TO COVER THE COST OF HOOKING UP THE ALARM TROLLS WIFES CLOTHES DRYER AND HOT WATER TO THE WASHING MACHINE. POOR WOMEN.As far as the 1955 buick guy he cries every day he has no one to talk to about cars and life,talk about life get one , you have non and a penion, wicks road DB. ONE THING ELSE LIL BIT OF LUCK LOOKS LIKE HE PUT ON SOME POUNDS ANOTHER FAT TROLL, THOSE FRIDAY LUNCHS MUST BE GOOD. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE TROLL'S CHRISTMAS PARTY, HEY IS FREE ALARM TROLL.ALARM TROLL When IS THE LAST TIME YOU SPOKE TO YOUR SISTER TROLL DB . THANK YOU[:o)]

Funny enough, but then, this "professional" "document":

http://i.ebayimg.com/14/!Bb8GqnwB2k~$(KGrHqIOKjQEq4ZMipVtBKyS(td58w~~_3.JPG[:o)][:o)]

Only 27 left!!:D

The final piece of the puzzle was where it is on LI... BOHEMIA! Pass de gange mon!!:D

I'll bid and hope to win just for what promises to be a groovy road trip!http://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/cool/cool0044.gif

Only 4 in New York, and 27 Nationally, What a crock, I'd bet there were probally 127 or more still left in NYC alone, I know in Tulsa we have at least 30 4 drs. Out at a salvalge yard sale there must have been 15 in that yard alone. And all 4 drs, and i know of at least 4 in our club, i even have a 60 regal 4 dr, running car.

Bob, If you are the winning bidder of the auction, you may be the recipient of a "special" prize in the glove compartment!

I'm not quite sure how they got there figures on "How many are left".[?]
At first I thought they were just going by currently registered vehicles, but then they mention salvage averages. I could maybe go along with the posted model specific numbers as currently licensed drivers, but not "total left". If so, my car is one of 27![:p];)
I do think the grille emblem looks pretty cool over the clock delete.[8D]
Too bad I've already got a silly old clock in there.:D

Note that the document is 10 years old. There may only be 20 Lark Regal 4 doors left by now. Better get one fast.

If the carpet gets wet, the seeds may sprout.... You laugh, but a friend with dissolute habits once had an old Rambler with rotting floorboards, which admitted enough moisture to germinate a little farm on his floor.

Bob A. - Bohemia is quite a ride for you, but the car may be worth it if the price is right.

If it pulls to the right, I would suspect a left wheel cylinder, not a right.

Not that bad, Gary- a bit over 5 hours. No big deal. I've been to the Island twice this Summer- so far;)
