Back on the chopping block after much hemming and hawing, looking to live carless and garageless for a while so everything must go!

Please find the ad for my XR below, located in southern CT, 127k miles, many updates!

Wow, I bet that was a tough decision after all you've been through w/it. Write up & pics look good. Best of luck w/the sale, Chris & don't be a stranger.

Thanks for the nice words guys, it definitely won't kill me if it doesn't sell. I do understand that part of the allure of these cars is a fun, inexpensive cost entry to a project so selling it for what seems like a reasonable price(I said OBO!) could be difficult.

Thanks! Ended up letting it go for $3600 but kept a few choice parts like borbet 16x7.5 wheels, fwd facing upper intake and Cossie turbine exhaust housing with jvab downpipe elbow to sell individually and make up the rest

That's not bad; as someone else said, it's good to see the prices inching up. Looking forward to the ad for your tasty parts! :headbang
