    I don't live in fear of my cars either. I've got an 85 on 10 year belts and this 88 I have no clue how old they are. I have no qualms firing them up when spring hits MN after 6 months of storage. I certainly have plans to get in there on both and update blets/hoses/pump/etc but it will happen when it happens. For a lot of buyers though its a big deal one way or the other and I can understand that too.

    Those interested in buying an "unserviced" Mondial t (3.4) are taking a huge gamble if they don't have a reputable shop nearby and are unable to DIY.

    The owner seems to have a bit of an attitude, but the car looks nice. Apparently he decided to roll the dice and defer belt service. So the first order of business would be a major service. On the positive side, you might be able to get it for alot cheaper than some of the other T-cabs that have appeared on BAT recently.

    Yah, but I feel like there are always some decent T cabs to pick from for similar money anyways. BAT seems like a pretty poor way to buy a mondi to me

    Oh! Got it. Missed that. Not sure why they out it on BAT wanting 50 though.... that would be the highest mondi sold there IIRC. Just wait for private sale if you want that. Not like there isnt a pretty established market value on these cars

    I don't disagree, but $31k was pretty low for BaT mondial auctions based on this car's condition etc. I don't think they would get $50, but I was surprised that it didn't get over $40k or so. Interesting to watch.

    "Vallejo"??? Doesn't inspire too much confidence in the Seller. It is "Valeo" and I doubt 50 units were made. I think more like 5 or 6, at least in North America where this Seller is located.

    Regards,

    Obviously a knowledgeable owner removes a headache, but owners with no idea how to advertise what they have is how you get great deals. Assuming this is real and not a conversion, there is a lot of leway in that price for fixing what the O may not have been aware of at least. If you can get a good inspection (and do the work yourself) it may not be a bad move (obviously depending on what is wrong)
