"Minor Damage"???

I'm just curious to see how many of you are in agreement with the owner of this 90 when he/she states:

"this vehicle is in Excellent condition, other than the minor front end damage. The damage was so minor that it was not recorded."

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1997-...item25595bd0bb

Personally, I've seen trucks involved in collisions that were salvaged with less damage body damage, and I'm not so sure there isn't some frame damage on this truck. Thoughts?

**Disclaimer: I am in no way associated with, nor have any interest in, this vehicle or its sale.

hard to imagine it would be a salvage job but it definitely is going to need some blacksmithing

seller is on crack with that BIN price

At the very least the front right frame horn is crunched. Look at how far back the bumper is peeled and how much of the jack point is exposed. Maybe the frame is still square, but it at least needs work on that horn.

There is at least a few grand worth or work there assuming no bent frame and the rear cross member is rusty.

What is that old Barnum and Baily adage: "There is a sucker born every minute?"

I am sure the guy still thinks they are $35K trucks, so 5K in repairs plus the $24K is a good deal to him.
