Has anyone seen this rust bucket on ebay???
Click here
MY GOD! I have seen better stuff come out of a scrap pile! I can not believe he is asking $8K for a buy it now....I hope the reserve is $1.99....
If anyone bids more than $100 for that I would love to sell them what comes outta my toilet!
BENGODI, whoever that is selling, should pull the few parts off the car and seel for decent money and trash the rest, oh I forgot it is already trashed.
I just still can not believe that people can take these rust buckets out of a pile and paint them black and white and think some idiot would pay $8,000 for it!!!
Anyway, we still have a (very nice) 76 Royal if anyone is interested. It has not been camoflauged with Black and white paint to try and hide the rust and decay! Email AlabamaBlues@wmconnect.com for more info on the car.
LOL, I love this!

Better than than the "shitbox Dodge" I mentioned yesterday.

IMO, that Bluesmobile looks great! Why? Because the Bluesmobile is supposed to look worn out, dirty, and busted. But, I agree with the price. It's a little high, but there's not a lot of 74 Monacos out there and there are a lot of Blues Brothers fans that are very willing to buy this.

Sure it can, go ahead and pay $8,000 today then and you'll be out another $5,000 on sheet metal and bondo!!!
Man that thing is eat up! The bid is up to $800 and it is obvious he has created another ebay screen name with no feedback as the high bidder on his own car!!!
Tooo Funny.

That car is better than mine so I'd suggest if you can do a little mechanical work, this is your car, cheap. Or at least for now. He's right it's gonna attract attention and people will love it regardless of rust and bondo. Besides my car aint nice or authentic by any means, but i love it so who cares, someone will save this car because they want one, For sure. Hell Id by it for a spare but why deny someone else.

"F-N' do it! It will cost you some dough but not like he's sayin. just keep her out of the weather and it will go along time, you'll love the laughs. There is no need to do the whole car unless you realy want to, leave that to the rich folks, enjoy it while you can.

That would include me LOL. :wink:

My dad currently owns around 17 cars, around 10-12 are classics, I don't feel like counting in my head right now. Seriously, I've been looking for a project with my dad to restore a car and this could be it. We talked about a highboy or a truck but it never happened :cry: Oh well, time to beg. :D

Looks like he got tired of bidding on his car...
I agree with the age of the car, but I guess I am just spoiled with these southern cars we have had, no rust and they all at least had the original metal attached and no flaking off around the whole thing.
It's just kinda stupid to list something for a $40 ebay fee and put a buy it now of $8K on it and some kinda outlandish reserve.
My God, you would think this is one of the cars from the movie with that kinda price tag up front.
I start painting the 76 tomorrow and will post photos of the completed car on our site at www.thealabamabluesbrothers.com next week or so.
If anyone is interested it may go up for sale after our use this summer or fall, and I promise not to have an $8,000 buy it now, LOLOL!!!
Peace all my blues bros!

Appraised by "Silver Custom Wheel" at $10,000


I guess $8150 is a bargain then :BB:

But you're right, it looks fantastic!

30 years old only 14 K ?? i wonder why it has been sitting so long and why ?

a 30 year old car that is "all original " except for tires and a battery is asking for trouble if you were to start driving it . letting a car sit that long is not good for it , brake lines and fittings rust and corrode from the inside and water builds up from condensation in the lines , rubber gaskets, hoses and seals, shrink and break , and all will probley have to be replaced . gasoline turns into varnish in the tank the fuel lines and fuel pump and carb, even if you run it it still turns to varnish like substance , thick gooey and like honney ,

the inside of the engin and trans rusts and corrodes on the inside especially alumunum parts , just letting it run isnt enough, crank cam and other bearings do not seal right and rust forms on them ,anti-freeze looses its ability to cool and heat ,

granted it is a beautiful car to look at , but i wouldnt trust it to go a hundred miles befor trouble starts . i wish who ever buys it the best of luck and hope they know a good repair shop , there gonna need it !
