That Willys truco Sena like a steal. Even in noon-running condition.

Suburban is neat, but a 190k mile 4L80 has to be nearing the end of it's life.

Too bad there's not more photos of the Internationals. I dig those trucks.

The 1941 Chevy is neat, would be a shame to do anything other than her the interior done and put the glass back in it.

Love the silver/turquoise color combo of the Impala. The stepmother had a 1965 when Dad met her that had been get grandmother's from new, but it lived in Salt Lake it's entire life so was fairly rusty. A local family bought it and restored it, but last I heard it had been wrecked. Not sure how with a 283 and a Powerglide.

Mustang doesn't do it for me, but seems nice. The triple hit of convertible, automatic and 6-cylinder makes it a parade car rather than a fun cruiser.

Love the Taurus, too bad about the bumper on an otherwise seemingly spotless car. What is making those bumpers so brittle with age?

The Taurus listing is gone now so I can't view the pictures, but I remember the 1990's Ford Mondeos having terribly brittle bumpers. This is the car the US got as Ford Contour.

Especially the facelift version that ended production in 2000 suffered from this. The outer bumper shell was made from terribly brittle and thin plastic that would crack and break really easily, especially in the cold, and it couldn't be plastic welded or repaired in any meaningful way. The cars are mostly gone now but I saw more than a few of these with duct tape repairs.

The Ford truck looks nice, but boy those wheels are double ugly. Easy fix I suppose.

Cadillac is nice to. More your speed, than mine @GRtak though.

Wagon looks too, world be a good daily.

Really nice condition. Though the price seems like it's for only for VW fan boys.

Kind of light on details, but looks decent enough. Hood and roof need repainted white to really make it look good.

I'd take the '64 Dodge 330, if it were about 10k cheaper.

Spitfire looks like it's hiding more rust.

The Olds is cool, but those wheels are not right for the car.

Subaru is an interesting proposition. If you have a wrecked or rusty car this might save your bacon.
