Kinda "interesting" car for sale

But the ad is what really makes it awesome. I don't know this person, so maybe he is as cool as he says, but I found all the name dropping a bit weird. Aside from that, who wants a convertible-ish thing that has not top and no back seat. FWIW, this is local to me, so if anyone wants me to look at it for them, I'd be happy to.

Not my style, but man the builder is a craftsman. I think the car is ugly, but I recognize the effort and the ability that went into creating it.

"The body features elaborated rear quarter panels".


It appears that he severely misspelled elongated.

I think he meant to put "exaggerated rear quarter panels".

I like "exacerbated" myself.

Proofreading is not this guy's strong point. I learned today that one can misspell "AOD".

He makes it pretty clear that he is a full of himself sales agent of some sort for the actual owner of the car but wants us to know in a Craigslist ad for that someones else's car that he's ordered himself a new car from Ford. Weird.

The more you customize a Mustang, the fewer the number of people who will appreciate it. So, for this car...

Currently working on a 1970 Mach 1 project. See it here: http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/vi...ode-build.html
