This guy needs to understand what 'museum' quality really means, or I do, as I think of musuem and show quality to be synonomous. These 2 cars are survivors, very nice drivers, but show cars they aren't. Just my $.02

you have not even seen the car genius! be respectful ok!!
if you are trying to reduce the price; this is not the best way.
Coming in to a forum where you have no previous usage as a member, have never contributed to the collective knowledge, and use our hospitality only to attempt to sell your cars is perhaps technically acceptable, but then insulting our long-time friends because he commented with his opinions on a *gasp* forum, also is "not the best way." By the way, we have a dedicated "For Sale" section on this forum which is the appropriate place for your post. You perhaps also did not notice the rules for posting cars for sale, so if you can revise your post to respect our host's request we would all appreciate it. Rules state: "If you have posted your stuff elsewhere (ie ebay) don’t just post a link to it, advertise it here with enough information, people don’t come here to search ebay."

For what it's worth I agree that the post misrepresents the condition of the cars. Of course any condition car can be called "museum quality" because we know there are crappy car museums all overt the country with a handful of old wrecks that somebody decided to display in an old building on his property, but the term does have a commonly accepted meaning and indicated something of rarity, exceptional condition or possessing unique qualities unable to be duplicated elsewhere (neither of these cars fit the bill). Good luck with the sale, they are decent cars, but perhaps oversold which is a turn off to collectors here. Consider sticking around and participating in some conversations, we have a lot of knowledge to share here and you probably do too.

Oh I don't know. "Museum quality" has many different connotations. As a for instance, whenever people see me driving my '72 W114 they're always saying, "Whaddya doing driving THAT? Why don't you put that in a museum somewheres and get a real car"

DWS, you arrogant 108 owner, ya' hurt the thin-skinned guy's feelings on his old bangers... hee hee hee. I fully agree. I looked at them and thought "maybe a car museum in Nigeria can send him a cashier's check for $12,114,123.99"

DirectLA... I'm glad you quoted him before he took the links down.

Sheesh, some people compliment me on my car (but they are susally seeing it at night, while it is moving) and others ask me when it is going in for paint... It is all good.
