The fender mirrors are interesting.

Price is now down to 1800. I think this guy had high hopes and now seems eager to just sell it. Lynn is mostly slammed Toyotas and Honda's so maybe he doesn't have the market here. If I hadn't just put a ton of money into my s70 i'd be interested, but I also know next to nothing about the 240.

Edit: now down to 1675 lol

On another note,

Looks like a good deal for a low mileage M56 car! I'd have to see the interior.

Interesting color, don't see too many of those. Not too bad if it's as nice as the seller makes it sound.

It’s an overpriced non-runner, Blown transmission

Arguably, the worst set of sell pictures I have ever seen. Worse than Jims...

Didn't even bother reading that far... that thing's a pile. The crappy pics didn't detail the cosmetic issues too well, either!

$500 car on the high end. The Tbricks old guys knocked me out of price bashing everything, so I've trained myself to be super optimistic when commenting on values... that said, I paid $325 for my 240 a few weeks ago, so I haven't lost my frugality!
