Default Ummmmm - Not my favorite citrus green color

Just saw this on ebay. Couldn't get too excited about it. Priced like a Citrus. Doesn't look as good IMHO. I actually thought "hovercar" when I first saw it.

It's just plastidip, get ready for some truly awful paint hiding beneath.

Seller doesn't even provide any info on car. Just wants buyer to know sale is final and that there is no warranty. What a rip off

What do you expect from a "Sidewalk Dealer"?

Yeah but check out the hatch ornament in one of the pictures. The original craigslist ad said it's a "show car". It must be quite a show at 70 mph with the F-86 aimed the wrong way!

And it's a CVT too.

Asking a genuine citrus price for a CVT car with a crappy paint job and we can still see the original blue paint quite easily.. I'd offer him $20 for it, hey, if he can throw out insulting offers, why can't I?
