Seeing the condition of this car made me want to cry:

:( I'm fairly sure there are felony criminal statutes in Colorado prohibiting the torture of Black Pearls in such a manner. If there aren't, there should be.

Judging by the external rust patterns and the overall 'rust-everwhere' moccasin rust effect, I'd guess this was either a deep water immersion car (Katrina?) or a deep snow burial car (left outside in the Rocky Mountain winters).

Everything he says about how valuable it SHOULD be is true. But with rust this pervasive, could it even be saved? And if you did restore it, how much more would you have to spend than it was worth? His comment about some of the gauges not working probably indicates the high-water level :|

That just spoiled my morning.

It's fitting that it also has a sunroof. The Titanic is in "original" condition too!

Good luck to this guy.
