The car is now fixed and running great...i wouldn't sell it for less than 3900......the guy who did the work offered me 3700 on the spot......I would have to get 3900 to justify selling....and I would be sad

Nice car! If your are serious about selling, post up a proper ad.

Take lots of pics, describe the maintenance and condition in great detail. Be firm about the price that you are asking. This string is weird, and it doesn't appear that you really want to sell it.

Good luck.

very nice ride indeed !!

but it s hard to raise the asking price, after you set one.

imo, dont let 200 dollars sour the deal if you had that offer. there is not many people walking around with money in their pockets yet.
