The ebay seller has been on ebay since 2003 and has 100% positive feedback.

 

Just because you don't like the listing - that is no reason to go create a thread on a public forum stating it should be " illegal ".

That comment, I'm sure, was facetious!

But I agree with others that this car's modifications

are in rather horrendous taste.

Says the car is in Corona, Ca., only an hour drive from Pasadena. Maybe one of the Boman or Schwartz family is hacking them up like their Grandpop's did.

 

Those old birds messed up some full classics.

 

There is a difference. One observer embraces 80 years of dogma and the other automatically rejects anything that came after them (unless they own it).

There are plenty of recently modified cars I like, however that poor Caddy definitely is not one of them. Still when it comes to modified cars the one style {era ?} I come back to is late 1940's / early 1950's dry lake racers. Some were out and out race cars however most were dual purpose; daily driver, weekend racer. Usually quite low tech , just lots of ingenuity.

While I wonder what an ""all working" boss entertainment system" is, I'm really impressed by the curb feelers, front and rear, with duals in the rear.  What are those metal panels beneath the rockers, between the front and rear wheels?  Draft curtains?  Surely not running boards ... ? 

 

As hideous as this thing is to me, it appears to have been "well done".  Someone sunk some serious $$$ into this thing.  To each his/her own.

 

Cheers,

Hope he means "Bose". "Boss" are swap meet quality stereos. I had one in my RV. Pretty cheesy

OK I gave up trying to figure out other peoples tastes a long time ago.  All said, there is a lot of time and money in this car, not my style, but the owner liked it, even has a CB radio.  It is a time capsule of the 1980s, there will be a proud new owner somewhere (one bidder so far).

Aside from the car that isn't my taste, the houses you can see in the non-photo shopped backgrounds look like perfectly nice houses, and the ad would look a lot more 'normal' and probably wouldn't garner the negative attention if it wasn't so haphazardly edited like that

The house in California those 13 kids were found held captive in last January looked 'perfectly nice' from the street in the news footages, too!!
