The Craigslist ad says 170,000, might be able to get some $ knocked off the price as it's almost due for another timing belt kit.

I recognize the business where this is at. It's 10 minutes from my house. I may run by and look at it this evening. But while I'd love to have a DC2, I really have too much rolling stock right now. If I could trade a worn out Chevy pickup for it, I might consider it.

I went by on the way home from work today to look at the DC2. I wasn't there.

Actually, the kid manning the desk at 5:20 pm said that a check engine light came on during a test drive and the car was at a mechanic's shop waiting in line to be fixed. He expects it back Monday or Tuesday of next week.

I recognized the place in the Craigslist photos as a construction company. You can still see the landscaping dirt and stuff in the photos of the PT. It appears they have now put in used car lot on one side.

There's about twenty to thirty cars there. All are older and roughly from the PT era. The sign said they were a "wholesale" dealership. Where I'm from, that's usually a poor boy that dealerships call when somebody wants to trade in something more than a few years old. The wholesaler gets these cars for a song and then either takes them to auction or tries to resale them. They had pretty decent prices on several of them, even for a used car lot.

The bad news is that a place like this isn't usually interested a deep cash discount below asking price. And unlike an individual with a Craigslist ad, the price doesn't tend to keep going down until the car sales. Depending on how much the wholesaler is able to draw against his bank's floor plan on a given car, he will often just take it to auction if he doesn't get near the asking price. But I'll still check it out if I get a chance because you never know for sure.

At least they have it at a shop troubleshooting the CEL, they could have tried to sell it with the light on, and then a potential buyer could use that to get some $ knocked off.

Those chrome bumpers from Tennesee in the other thread sure would look on this DC.
