CAPITAL GREED. I went and looked at this car last year(it's in my hometown). Guy wanted 900 but he eventually called me to sell for 700. The car is in extremely bad shape. Glass Milked up, both doors have extreme outer shell rust(one side has a place larger than my hand that is completely through, rust holes in roof, rush hole in trunk lid, tail lights badly faded, engine would crank but didn't start, dude said it smoked pretty bad, auto car, etc. It comes up in my feed today and some dude is trying to get 3000 out of it. He is so lazy that half of his pics are just reused from the old listing.

That's a really weird rust pattern.
The bumpers, wheel housings and rocker panels look fine.
Maybe they've been masterfully papered over, but I don't think so.
Did something caustic drip on the doors?
More photos needed.
