I was most impressed by the paint job, hardly any overspray!

Yes, believe it or not, it's the same car. Check out the wheels, the transmission pan, and the oil pan.

This one looks much better.

Yeah the bottom car is only 45mins away from me I need to drive up and look at it. However I see driver side emblem is missing and rocker panel moldings. I wonder what the reserve is?

Good catch. I didn't notice the missing script and that leads to a few other issues.

Hmmmmmm, this car may not be as nice as I first thought. My guess is that it has been hit fairly hard on the driver's side.

Along with the missing script check out the adjustment setting of the camber bolt and compare the caster adjustment settings on the strut rods. Both adjustments are pretty close to maxed out on the driver's side.

If I were looking to buy this car I'd spend $70 at an alignment shop to see if it can be aligned to within specs, or maybe even a frame shop.

And it has a broken valance near the parking light and one of the hood pins is horizontal!

Is this an optical illusion or is there a wrinkle in the frame?

Arlie, I think what you are seeing is the driver side lower radiator bracket.

Sure is the same one as I had the Marti report emailed to me.
