False Advertising

I spend an awful lot of time on Craigslist looking at cars, even when I'm perfectly happy with the one I've got.

In this particular case, I was being seduced by the prospect of a V8-swapped S30 Z, which is something I've wanted for awhile. I exchanged a few emails with the seller, and I generally thought I was in for an otherwise-stock SBC-swapped S30 with some nice meshies on it.

He did not, for whatever reason, see fit to mention the Grimace Purple color, XJS Flying Buttresses, Luke Skywalker Landspeeder tail lights, spaceship wing, or FLAMING Z's on the hood. All of that apparently slipped his mind, and so after he sent me photos he was just as surprised as can be that I was no longer interested.

I would also want to know what is the deal with those exhaust tips, looks interesting.

Exhaust is Supertrapp. Not all that uncommon, especially with the domestic V8 crowd, but definitely odd looking.

Wow, every time I see an S30 in this condition I want to find all of the old fuckers that think this shit is cool and euthanize them.

disgraceful, enough s30 get destroyed by rust, do we really need to try and destroy ones that nature didn't?

I would love that rear hatch. Too bad it would take too much work to make it cool again.
